1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Sookie Stackhouse Dress Help! on: May 26, 2010 01:34:42 PM
You are correct, it was a custom made piece for the show.

Actually, I have already made a muslin for this dress based off an 80s prom dress pattern (with modifications: built in bra since Ms. Paquin is a small B I would say and I am a large D, also I legnthened it a little to just past my knees instead of just above) If it works out, I will be all over posting a tutorial

My only key piece of advice is either interface the bodice with some serious interfacing, or sew featherweight boning into the lining. Unless you have washboad abs or a wardrobe team on hand to adjust your dress, a low waist dress is going to bunch in bad ways after a half an hour of wear.

The key is the fabric, I have had very little luck finding a suitable fabric. It would seem they are trying to evoke the red-work quilting that was popular during and after the Civil War (or my nerd tastic mind just went there on it's own) However most red work is smaller than the pattern on Sookie's dress. Also, her skirt is pretty full (you can see when Bill whisks Sookie up at the end of the episode) so finding a fabric with lots of movement without looking like...well, an 80s prom dress...is a complex endeavor.

I've never been kissed

And I hope I will not need to wait until I am 30 to recieve my first kiss...

I'm Pansexual

It's not something I consider to be a "big deal" but I haven't told anyone because I know that a lot of people in my area are fairly closed-minded about this sort of thing (and once I tell one person the whole town will hear about it sooner or later!).

Whenever I go through a major emotional upheaval, I change all of my passwords. Call it a fresh start

I'm not as creative as everyone thinks I am

I weigh 135 lbs, yet....I still feel like the "fat friend"

I hate babies

I like to walk around in the dark pretending to be a vampire

(not in a weird Twilight way though!)

Obviously this only works if you're wearing a long black coat. But its still quite entertaining.

Lingerie is sexier than a naked person

I love St. Patrick's Day... ....but I'm not even Irish

I am unhappy

Too bad about the part, but that is one hell of a an outfiit Smiley What pattern did you use?

I really am impressed with how the dress looks! I am a firm believer that the bride is the star, not the dress, and I think this dress acomplishes that perfectly. People will be complimenting YOU all wedding and how great YOU look look in the dress, instead of wearing a flashy dress where the dress gets all the attention. Smiley

Hey All!

Here is the page jayla sent to me, and it is beautiful!


The Maiden Goddess entered,
Using her hands to part the dreams, to clear her  way
And the shining of her garments brightened the holy home
And the god saw her,
Blinking his eyes half-open, letting them close
Nodded, woke almost
Over and over tired,
Failed over and over
And roused himself
And leaned supported on one elbow
Recognized her and asked why she had come there

(Because I was a replacement partner, I only have the first section....however perhaps we will learn the rest of the story in round 2....it's like a cliffhanger Smiley )
