21  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: What type of fabric is in this picture? on: August 25, 2004 02:55:45 PM
It's very hard to find a skin-colored T-shirt or I would have... *sigh* I wish more fabric webpages allowed shopping my color, since I usually know what color I need more than what texture or grain.
22  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / What type of fabric is in this picture? on: August 25, 2004 02:32:09 PM

I'm trying to find that fabric that forms the "skin" of the doll's face over a cotton body form. It's written on the page as "cotton jersey" but I couldn't find any of that in local fabric stores.

Cotton Lyrca and interlocking knit have been suggested, but they don't seem to be thin enough when I can find them to just make a skin, and using nylon is too thin. (the stitching of the body form shows through)

I put this in clothing because I don't think there's a general "sewing" section, but if I'm wrong, I'm sorry... I also didn't put it in doll making because I thought people with clothing making experience might possibly have a wider range of knowledge of fabric types, but I could be wrong about that. If a mod feels otherwise, feel free to move it, I won't cry.

Thanks! If I've figured out my photobucket account, this should work:

He's so scraggily, poor thing, he needs a Remus to cheer him up!

Do his arms flop around when you use him to bother? ^_^

Here are links to a few that I have made. Sorry they are all on DA, I don't have a host that allows x-linking.

Please feel free to post your thoughts.

Just replying to Elephantfanatic...

The show is Get Backers. It should be out in the US in 6 months to a year depending on how high on the translation priority list it is for the company that owns it.
27  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Working on a silly hat... on: February 21, 2004 08:40:53 PM

I'm trying to make that hat... and I have no idea where to begin, other than just starting on creating a bunch of mock ups until something works (which is how I do most everything, but I'm running out of time before I need it finished)

I'm also wondering if people think I should create shoulder pads or some kind of corset that would give me the more anime triangular body shape...

I'm asking here rather than the anime costumes board I usually go on because people here tend to be a bit more... real. (not to put anyone down, but sometimes I don't want to cause myself pain to look like a 2d character)

I have the trenchcoat, it just needs some help with having lost all its buttons over the year, and I made the tie using a Japanese pattern book.

To actually answer the question (although since this is multi-posted, it might be answered elsewhere...) most raver clothes can be made by cutting up existing clothes. Do you have a specific style in mind? Post a picture and people might be able to help you more.

You could try putting it over your head inside out and getting a good friend to pin everywhere you're going to have to cut/trim. Inside out works better because then the pins are actually on the side you're going to sew on.

Decide and draw out (even if it's in stick figure form) before hand what you want to do. Do you want holes for your arms to come out? Slits? Neither? Having a plan is really important.

Make it in the large size in a cheap muslin, using basting stitches. Then fit it to you, get everything right, draw the stitch lines you want to keep on, and seam rip the fabric back apart. Where you drew your lines you have instant pattern, sized just for you.

If that's too much work... just don't cut up the original pattern to make it smaller, because then you can't go back if you screw up. I'm sure you already knew that, though.

As for the Alf sheets... only if you can handle people's responses to nostalgia, be they "I love and miss that show" or "that show was horrible! why are you making me think about it again"
