3341  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Re: Why?? Do you sew for your children? on: March 19, 2008 08:33:01 AM
::Applauds Penlowe::!!!  That was fantastically said.

For my two cents, I don't have kids, yet, but I sew for my friends' kids, and will sew for my kids, mostly for the joy of sewing.  And little kids are always so appreciative. 

Added to the fact that an unnamed store has apparently become the "Hannah Montana store" (with the branding) and no child of mine will ever walk around in a shirt (or, Godforbid, booty shorts!) that says "Brat" or some such nonsense.  When did being a brat become a good thing?  Also that they make booty shorts for kids...that's just wrong.  And in my humble opinion, there are a few skirts out there (in every store!) that ought to come with bloomers.

Aw, I don't think it's abuse at all, just another kind of love!  It's beautiful.
3344  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Pillowcase shirt! on: March 19, 2008 05:38:39 AM
Thanks, everybody!  I'm so happy with it...and it was unbelievably easy to make.

The sides and straps are actually a second pillowcase (the printed one was too small to go all the way around my chest, so I split it up with the blue).  It's just a heavier cotton, but it's still soft.  They both belonged to my husband's grandmother, so they've got that old, many-times-washed softness to them.

Hi!  This is my first attempt at a picture post (I hope it works!).  This is a tank I made a while back out of two pillowcases.  It has four panels, the front and back are both gathered a bit at the top, the side ones are not.  It is insanely comfy and big (I have big girl hips, so the side panels are actually A-line, plus gathers, so the hem is substantial).  This was the first piece of clothing made on my sewing machine, and my first reconstructed anything, so it was a learning experience.  Alright, enough yapping, here's a picture! (that's mostly background...sorry about that):

Oh my gosh, these are so unbelievably cute!  I think everyone I know would just die over these.  They're awesome!  And funny enough, they don't make me crave ice cream, but rather those dots that come stuck on paper...
3347  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: I made a duct tape corset pattern now what? on: March 18, 2008 01:30:24 PM
Check the "Make Your Own Corset" thread above, the duct-tape way is the one the OP used, and it came out great!  There are also several links in there to some great resources for supplies, as well as discussions about the pros and cons of different materials.  It's a great resource!  Good luck!
3348  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: ~ Tie-Dye & Black Panel Twirl T-shirt skirt ~ on: March 18, 2008 01:00:27 PM
Oooh!  Do you like flouncy?  You could sew some elastic to the bottom of each seam to gather it up a bit, making the curved bits flounce.  You could also just do this to one panel, and even up the rest, and make it a bustle-style skirt.  I've got bustles on the brain, hence the idea, but it'd be super cute!
3349  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Easter dress for my little girl Soo pretty, please look!! on: March 18, 2008 11:07:06 AM
That is precious.  My aunt made me a doll dress like this once, and it was my absolute favorite thing, ever...I wanted one for me so bad!  (I was 6).  She's adorable!

Those are too cute!  Not for the first time, I wish I lived someplace that got a little colder than southern Louisiana does.
