1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: fix for a too small tshirt, or <ahem> sweaty armpits on: August 25, 2008 06:25:01 PM
Very nice fix!  The shirts look great!  For shirts that aren't quite amenable to that treatment, but you don't want pit stains on, get an aluminum free deodorant.  Most have some kind of zinc aluminum compound in them,  but there are a few out there that are ok that have no aluminum.  I use Tom's of Maine (available online, in Walgreens, and Trader Joes) and since starting to use it, I have had no nasty pit stains on my snow white, tissue thin t-shirts.  Hope this helps some people, and again, beautiful job on the t-shirts Smiley
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Another retro whirlaway dress (so much fun to make) on: August 23, 2008 04:40:43 PM
I fell in love with this dress when I saw it on craftster and my sister and I both bought the pattern at JoAnn's pattern sale a while back.  I had bought the damask to make curtains a long time ago, but it wasn't exactly what I thought it was when I bought it (dangers of buying fabric online).  The black stuff came into my possession last spring, and the two went together perfectly to make the dress, which I wore to a wedding last weekend.  I got a few compliments, though I knew every little mistake in it.  The neckline looks a bit wonky in the pics.  It looked great on the floor, but not quite so perfect when I put it on.  Anyway, I like the fabrics Smiley

Thanks for looking Smiley
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / blue and white tie neck blouse on: June 29, 2008 10:39:21 AM
Hey everybody,
I made this blouse last week.  I like the tie neck look, but this turned out a little big.  I'm hoping if I pair it with a slim skirt or pants it'll look ok.  Or, I can always use it if I ever get preggers.  I used Butterick B4293view D with view B sleeves.  I made it out of a nice cotton but next time I may go down a size and use a fabric that drapes better, maybe a silk or a light satin. 
A question, does anyone else find that when they use the size of pattern that their measurements dictate that the garment turns out a bit too big?  Just curious.
This pattern was really easy to follow and the blouse went together very quickly.  I also used snaps again, since I am in love with snaps.
Thanks for looking and happy sewing!

I love that fabric, the mix of brown and blue is one of my favorites.  The dress is adorable and I love all the buttons down the back, it looks so classy Smiley

That's beautiful!  You made such a lovely design and it looks wonderful on you!  Gorgeous job!

Looks like it fits very well! did you have to adjust the pattern for that?

The pattern is nice because it has about 4 darts to give it shape.
It actually feels a little bit big, but if it looks like it fits, then I'll stick with the sizing as is.  I didn't adjust it at all, but was considering trying to use one size for bust and waist and trying to use the larger size for hips the next time I make it, but I don't want to screw it up.
Thanks everyone for the nice comments Smiley

Snaps rock.  My neighbors probably don't think so due to the pounding, but damn, they are so much easier than buttons.
Anyway, I cut this blouse out weeks ago and finally sewed it up today after a couple failed attempts at making stuff sans pattern.  I used Simplicity 4077 view D (with view E sleeves).  It was extremely easy to make and only took a few hours, even with hems and snaps and dinner thrown in there.  I definitely will make more blouses like this Smiley 
And I think the fabric is just adorable (surplus city, $2.00 a yard, yay!).
Thanks for looking Smiley

Those are great!  I really like your white one as well.  I had been kicking around how to make a straight-jackety corset, and your shirt has me all excited about it again!  Nice job!

Holy crap, that is awesome.  I've loved those cats since I was a little kid and that dress just makes my day.  Freakin awesome.  I've got to start thrifting for some sheets!
