1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / DIY dress pattern help on: October 21, 2014 04:24:05 AM
I have a butterick pattern for a 50's wrap dress, but it never sits right (I'm an 18 top and 20-22 bottom)
I love the full skirt, so have made my own pattern for top of dress. I haven't yet sewn skirt to top(I'm in work) but I'm having trouble with the back of dress bodice.
I have put darts in, as they're needed, but it has two stickout lumps where darts end.
I can't think  of a way  around it, as I'm useless with pattern alterations.
The  front of bodice seems ok so far.
I'll take some pics later to show you where I'm at so far.
Help gladly appreciated
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Small zipper bag on: February 03, 2011 10:31:06 AM
This is ideal size for use as a makeup bag, or small evening bag. It easily fits a coinpurse, cigarettes (bad, I know) lighter, phone, and bits of makeup.

I've been faffing about with my scraps today, like I don't have more important things to do  Grin

I was altering a dress I don't wear, and was trying to Gibbous it up, but it will take yards and yards of fabric (i'm a big girl!), meaning lots of money, as my scraps are small.

So, I decided to make a bag. I'll try and use it at least once  Smiley


Front ( I need the perfect button now )

6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Shirred Maxi Dress on: July 02, 2010 02:58:40 PM
I threw a couple of Maxi's together. I usually don't wear anything without at least short sleeves, but lately got the confidence to wear stuff with thin straps, so made these......

This was before I put the straps on.....

7  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Discussion and Questions / Outline is a bit off....... on: October 03, 2008 09:50:23 AM
.......well, a lot really.

I've had my Brother innovis 700e for a few weeks, but I'm having trouble with pictures. The outline is always off.
I've tried messing with the tension and stuff but nothing is working.

I was using some pictures my friend put onto a memory card for me, so thought maybe the files had messed up during copying.
So, I spent 64 on a brother card with designs on, thinking this would work.
It didn't, the outline is still way off.

Has anyone got any ideas what's wrong?
8  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Discussion and Questions / Thread snapping on: September 26, 2008 08:59:02 AM
I have a brother innovis700, and my top thread keeps snapping. I've altered top and bobbin tensions, tried using the lower speed, but this still keeps happening.

I'm thinking maybe I'm not getting my tensions correct, but despite trying, cannot come up with a happy medium.
I tried using different colours on top and bottom, and I'm refering to the pictures in the manual, but am still having trouble.

It also could possibly be the thread i'm using, but I want to ensure all is well with tension before trying new threads.

Could someone point me in the right direction as to what a normal tension should be for this machine before the darn thing breaks on me :lol:

Any help would be greatly recieved.

My mum made this, it took a lot of hand stitching, which was hard for her, she has Lupus. Just thought I'd share....

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Topsy Turvey Cinderella on: February 23, 2008 05:05:08 PM
This took ages to knit. The detail was a cow. The finishing was the hardest part though. I love this doll.
