1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: 48 Yard Petticoat/Crinoline Tute on: February 13, 2013 09:27:23 AM
When I saw the pictures were no longer visible I was sad but figured I'd check the comments in case someone asked about that and you answer. So glad I did. Thank you for posting the PDF link. I'm a visual learner and my brain pictured the original instructions in 2 different ways and I wasn't sure which was right. This helps so much. Thank you again. Grin
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Umbrella swift on: September 16, 2010 09:22:42 PM
I found a book for $9 on how to make an umbrella swift. I haven't purchased it yet but it may help you.
here's the link:
and the name of the book:
Table Swift Construction Manual by Schneider: how to make a wooden umbrella swift.

Also I found this online:

There are some more cheap ones available online now too.

4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / Finally Made some poppets on: January 24, 2010 06:16:16 PM
I have been wanting to make poppets for a long time and finally got the chance this winter. They became Christmas presents. I stupidly forgot to get picture of the first one I made which I gave to my niece but I did get ones of the second one I made. The other one I made for a friend and it looks just like her comic book character. Her comic can be found here http://www.redzone-comic.com/ .
Here he is standing

and then sitting

and finally from the back so he can show off the streaks in his hair

He turned out so cool and now I'm officially hooked. My niece sadly wasn't interested in her's because she is so spoiled and if it doesn't come from a store she has no interest in it. However, my friend loved her's so much and said she couldn't have gotten a better present. So that made it all worth it again. Thank you Ghillie for giving me the opportunity to make something so cool.
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Re: How old does a child have to be before you give her a weird plushie? on: April 11, 2009 12:18:22 AM
I have a son and he always likes the weird and geeky toys. For instance he has a Mario plushie he adores and just got a mushroom plushie to go with Mario and that is fast becoming a necessity like Mario has become. It just has to be something the child's interest is sparked by. Plus kids seem to like the weirdest things, so go wild with the weird toys someone will appreciate it.

Out of curiosity (and I don't really want to start a completely new thread) is there a difference between the poppet pattern that Ghilie has and this one http://dollmaker.nunodoll.com/nekomimi/? Because from what I have seen, the end result looks very similar, but this 'nekomimi' pattern sounds really confusing!

ghilie's pattern is easier because the neko pattern has you use a stretchy material over the actual doll and the head of a cotton swab for the nose under the stretchy material and ghilie's is just one layer of material. Trust me when I say you should definitely talk to ghilie about her pattern...it's worth it.

8  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / Re: help making ruffly shreddy thingies on: December 26, 2008 10:25:08 PM
OK I just found a pattern that works better for the first dress...it's out of print buy you can still buy it on the site. http://www.voguepatterns.com/item/V8329.htm??tab=out_of_print&page=8 it's just a skirt but they have tons of corset patterns as well...oh nvm I see the reply to my post...Cool I hope you are able to get pics soon.

Ok I think I have an answer for you. It's dense layers of chiffon sewn one on top of another in a wavey fashion. The bodice of it is a fleshtone body suit which are easy to find from dancewear stores(like what ballerinas wear). The top is layered as well with more chiffon. The shredded part is harder. Some fabrics curl like that when you stretch them so I would say that's what was done. As for patterns...I would suggest a fitted skirt pattern that flairs at the bottom to get the right shape http://www.mccallpattern.com/item/M5429.htm??tab=skirts_pants&page=1 (this but longer)and just attach that to a body suit( http://www.mccallpattern.com/item/SSF828.htm??tab=stretch_sew&page=1 or http://www.mccallpattern.com/item/GPF813.htm??tab=green_pepper&page=1 ). You could also alter it to work with this pattern http://www.voguepatterns.com/item/V2237.htm??tab=evening_bridal_includes_designer&page=6

here are some other patterns if you are willing to tweek the look of the insiration a little

I hope this help you out. Also if you do it you have to post pics and let me know because I think that is so cool.
