Very cute, I love the pattern!

OK... It's attached. So I should just unpick it, shorten it, then finish the lining and wool separately? Thanks! :-)

Hi all. Long time since I've posted in here, but I need help!
I've purchased a coat from a second-hand shop, and it's lovely, except I'm far too short for the coat. Just the cut of it is totally wrong for a 3/4 length coat, but would look most lovely if it was knee length. Is there any way I can alter this without making it look obvious / amateur? The coat is made from thick wool, and is lined. I'm a fairy competent seamstress and have sewn coats before, but only from patterns and from scratch... So I'm a bit lost as to where to start!
Thanks if you can help!

I forgot to mention: I am in the UK (Scotland) so haberdashery stores are few and far between.

I do like qbmaya's  idea of cutting up and old bra, though. I could go and buy a really huge one so that I have enough material to play with Smiley

Thanks guys. This is for me to make, not buy. There's plenty of larger sized (and yes, probably supportive!) bikini tops out there, but I don't fancy looking like I'm wearing someone's gran's bikini on the beach. Plus I just fancied making my own. I'm going for a bit of a '40s retro feel.

Unfortunately I've looked into the swim cups idea, rostitchery , but my local stores (there's only 3) only stock up to a rather small looking D cup. I'm sure you'll agree that there's nothing worse than that 4-boob overhang effect when ladies wear too-small lingerie!

I've brainstormed and thought about that "supermesh" material, though heck knows what its proper name is, or where on earth I'd find it!

Hi everyone. Loooong time since I've posted in here, so I hope you don't mind if this has been asked previously and I've missed it.

I'm thinking of making a nice bikini or swimming cossie for my summer hols. I have a 34F bust (which might actually be a 32G, GAH) and will probably be making it from that generic lycra-ish swimming-costume type material. Have you any idea what I could line the bust section with to make it more supportive / sturdy? It would ideally be something waterproof / compatible, so that I can actually do summer holiday type activities without my boobs popping out all over the place and scaring small children.

Thanks everyone in advance (I know that someone must have some ideas!  Grin )

I've had this pattern for about a year, and was intending to make it for my graduation ball back in June. I ended up not going, but when I do make this, it'll also be in black, and I really hope it looks as hot as yours Smiley

Did you ever find your pattern? I'm desperate for one just like the one you've been looking for. Tried to draft my own, but it's gone a bit wrong somehow...

That Dorothy dress is uber cute. My little sister went out as Dorothy for a friend's themed party, but she bought her costume and looked more like Slut-Dorothy. Ha.

I'm having a big Halloween party in my house, with a shadow machine and fog and OTT decor. I don't know what to go as yet; toying between a '40s pinup sailor, or Little Red Riding Hood, or a zombie nurse. Probably going for the sailor option, as it means I can wear it out to a local burlesque / rockabilly club night.

I'm trying to persuade my boyfriend to go as Teen Wolf but he's having none of it. I think the best I will get from him is a half-assed "zombie". BOYS WHO DRESS UP PROPERLY ARE BEST!

p.s Uncle Rico!!! <3 <3 <3
