2231  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: Can I just say something about corsets for a minute? on: January 31, 2008 10:47:38 AM
I can vouch for the ill-fitting vs great fitting corset argument and on past experience this is why I paid a professional to make my proper corset rather than the unsupportive pink one I re-made.
so, now I own 1 really fantastic, boned, fully-tailored-to-my size corset. But it is cream and *looks* like underwear so i can't wear it outside my clothing; except for the whole "daughter's at granny's" situation.
I'm very short in the body, I have humungous norks and I'm kinda chubbly, but the wonderful lady on a uk corset website was kind enough to chat to me for ages trying to ascertain what size I'd need; then she made it to order. I'm still new to this site so I dont want to put her url on incase I'm advertising where I shouldn't.
I now wear my really good one under my really crap one lol!! that way i can party all night long.

2235  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Re: Sewing Essentials - What's in your kit? on: January 29, 2008 04:57:04 AM
Draper threads for my machine,
my machine lol!!
good scissors which are hidden after each use so that OH doesn't use them for cutting foil/wire/chicken etc
needles of varying length, width and eye hole and finally
a pair of surgical clamps. I own 2 pairs. ok this may sound wierd but they are invaluable! I use them mostly to turn piping inside out once done for making bags etc, but they will also hold things in place if I can't find enough pins.

I buy mine from Hobbycraft. It's walking distance from my house, but as a company they don't officially offer a mail order service...
BUT BUT BUT!!! their gloucester shop will post stuff out.
add 44 to the start of the phone number, and remove the first zero.
2237  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / jacket patterns for big busts? on: January 29, 2008 04:40:39 AM
I'm fairly new to the idea of patterns, I've always been a reconstructor of clothes rather than a clothes maker but I picked up some amazing curtains at a rummage sale recently and would like to make them into a jacket. I'm a european size 18, but I'm very short and have a really large bust and hips (inproportion to my height).
I know the curtains may make me look like a short chubby von-trapp child but they really are something special.
anyway, what kind of pattern should I go for, and will I need to kind of tailor the pattern to fit me?
my bust is a european 34HH; I think about 41in around, i could be mistaken though.
please help!!
