1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / How can I fix this ? on: July 27, 2009 06:57:45 PM
I love dresses with a straight neckline. I'm new to sewing clothes so I just bought a pattern and altered it. The front and back just go straight across. I really like it this way but when I'm standing it kinda bulges out and if someone tall was standing next to me, I'm sure they would get a show  Shocked

How can I fix this ? Is it because it's too low ? or do I need more darts somewhere ? I don't where to begin...

2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Just learned how to put on a zipper today... on: December 10, 2008 09:49:53 PM
and I went kinda nuts lol. I was always terrified of zippers...so I never tried but turns out it is really easy ! I was trying to plan out my attack last night on how to make a lined bag with a zipper. All this right side, wrong side, and flip was making my brain turn to mush. So today I just took out the zipper and sewed. Turned out fabulous !

last one is my fav !

This was my first time making this style bag...and it is hard. I think because it angles in ? I don't know. I had a really hard time stitching around the top lol.

So what do you think ?

5  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Love Spell on: November 19, 2008 02:38:51 PM
opinions ? My sister in law said it looked weird...too much ruffles for such a small bag. I don't think I would try to list this if the majority thinks it looks odd. Would love an opinion.

6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / New bags after my LOOONG haitus ! on: November 16, 2008 11:38:08 AM
I kinda gave up on sewing a few months back but now I'm BACK ! It's weird, I didn't realize how much I needed to sew to make my life feel balanced !

Anyways here are some new bags I've been working on. I wonder if clutches are still "in".

Whatcha think ? My hubby says I'm too simple =T

I really love this bag. I was listing to Corinne Bailey Rae when I was sewing and I think it set the tone for this bag because everytime I look at it I hear the song playing in the background lol.

This one was pretty simple.

Just put two piece of fabric together,
sew them around the edges leaving one side open,
flip it inside out,
fold it where you want it,
then sew around the edges !

What do you think ?

I saw these colors and just started sewing and this is what I came up with ! I was trying to be "different" but my hubby says it has the same style as all my others lol.

Would love opinions !
