1  the Amazing, Spectacular THREE HOUR Formal Dress (with no pattern!) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by homegirleh on: May 29, 2005 09:09:05 AM
Last saturday I had a banquet for drama club at school, which was pretty formal. Saturday at 10 in the morning, I started on a dress (which had been in my brain for weeks) I was nearly done with it when my mum decided we should rip it apart and make it COMPLETELY different. The banquet was at 5:30 and my poor boyfriend sat on the couch waiting for me to finish it (we left at 5:45, haha)
Overall, I think it was worth it! I am really pleased. No pattern, completely winged-it. Credit to my mum for her help (even though I did most of it Smiley )
Thanks for looking!

2  Sewing makes tshirt material stretchy-outed? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by homegirleh on: February 27, 2005 10:39:01 AM
Howdy friends! I had a bit of a dilemma for you all.

When I sew material like tshirt material or the stuff an A-shirt is made out of, or really anything that stretches, it gets stretched out and sewn that way (like if you took stretchy material and stretched it out and it stayed that way)

here, look.

it makes my hems too long and makes me frustrated! It doesnt matter what stitch I use-- straight, zig zag, even elastic. I have even tried using zig zag and stretching it out as it goes through, hoping it would snap back to normalcy but it doesnt.

Is there something I'm doing wrong? It really makes me mad and it ruins the look of my stuff...is there something I could change on my machine? tension maybe? or stitch length?

Thanks so much guys!

if it is really thick, like this, make a little ball of tinfoil and shape the bee around that, so that the clay only ends up being like, 1/4 inch thick or whatever. it helps a TON! and if you have something like, where you joina head to a body, use a piece of toothpick to join them together.

Im sure you could figure something out by looking at all the examples.
You could either cut open the top and fit the sides to your body or make strips in the back to tie together.
