11  swim suit! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Kimmberrrr on: April 17, 2008 04:04:13 PM
So I'm not really sure how.. but somehow i bought probably d ouble the amount of fabric i needed? i swear i bought what the pattern called for.. but i could make probably 3 more bathing suits out of what i have left over!

I used McCall's 5400
anyway.. here we go..
I hope no one is offended by these picutres.. the suit does not look normal when just laid out on the ground!
(oh yeah and the top has ruffles on the inner edge.. you cant really tell in the pictures)

sorry there isn't a full body shot.. I can't take pictures of myself very well.. so I just used my webcam! Maybe I'll upload better pictures later

12  VINTAGE PATTERNS in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by Kimmberrrr on: April 15, 2008 04:25:42 PM
First of all,
I guess I'll start off with the fact that this is my first post here, but I am in no way new to sewing and I have been visiting the site for quite a while now!
I'm not really sure why I never made an account before!

I am an avid knitter, crocheter and sewer!

Anyway.. the real reason of this post is that I just bought some vintage patterns at my local vintage clothing store (Design Archives)

I haven't used any truly vintage patterns before and was wondering if there was anything different that I should know before getting started! (I haven't even looked at the instructions for any of them yet, but I did check to make sure that they were there before i purchased them!)

I also figured i would include pictures of the patterns and ask what you guys think and which one i should start with?  I can't decide.. Some of them look like i could definitely wear still today and it could be cute, while others look like they could be nothing but costume! ha (unless i was reallyyy brave)

sorry if the pictures are too big!

and thanks for anything you have to offer =]
