1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Do you know what website this was on? on: July 04, 2007 01:06:56 PM
I'm pretty sure it's listed here, however i'm not sure where it's located. This website had a list of what could be reconstructed out of what. Ex: Dress- a childs dress and adult top,  Pants-childs dress, childs skirt, womens skirt, ...and it went on to list many more types of clothes and what could be made from them. Has anyone else seen this website and would be able to direct me back to it? Thank you for any info anyone has
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / help finding the right pattern on: May 09, 2007 04:08:35 PM
Is there a pattern for a backless, V-cut(halter) neckline dress that anyone has come across or has done themselves. I've looked on and off for about a year, but haven't found a pattern I like, and I don't think I'm able to make one myself yet. Any suggestions or info that anyone has would be great. I did happen to find one on here, however it covered the whole chest up to the neck and I'm to nervous to reconstruct that to a Vneck.

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / First picture post; corset on: April 21, 2007 07:18:49 PM
I've been sewing for a few years now, but I haven't really had an opportunity to post anything do to the fact that I don't have a digital camera and my computer is from the stone age; still running win98. So a few nights ago a friend of mine came over and took pics of me and my sis, and my daughter. I took this opportunity to at least grab my corset. I made this the winter of 04-05. I combined a pattern from th corset generator and gave it more of a gothic straightline bust. I didn't realize how much weight I've lost since then, I'm really having to push my chest out (or what there is of it) There's been lots going on here so I haven't been paying attention to my food intake. I think It's about time.

I hope you can see these, I haven't posted pics before. If anyone has any questions, comments, etc I would love to hear from you. I wish i could have gotten better shots. The front comes down to a point.

Thanks for looking
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / unintended washed wool on: March 21, 2007 06:47:39 AM
So I picked up this really cute Ann Taylor jacket at the salvation army the other day and in my haste to wash it, i threw it in the machine without looking at the fabric label. I probably knew it was wool but wasn't thinking at the time. So now the obvious happened; it's smaller, shrunken and I think what you would call felted? Is there any way of relaxing the fibers or stretching it back to it's original size? I thought about wash it in cold water and then reshaping it and letting it dry flat. Any suggestions?

5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Ballet Barre on: March 19, 2007 02:07:23 PM
I was wondering if any one has made a ballet barre; perhaps one that is portable? Or would anyone have any ideas on how to do this? ?
6  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / Another dye question on: March 15, 2007 10:17:33 AM
How I go about dying a silk garment (camisole)? I've just read the dying jeans question posted earlier and understand mostly what was answered, so I'm going to assume that Rit liquid dye wouldn't work well. Which leads me to another dyeing question: I've dyed the bottoms of a bikini black with the liquid Rit (never put through the wash or worn yet) and would like to do a top; is there a specific dye for bating suit material, and is Rit just kind of a mediocre dying agent?

thanks for any advice anyone can offer.
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Help with grommets on: July 26, 2005 08:59:00 AM
I've been lurking here for quite some time; mostly due to the fact that I don't own a digital camera. I've become more and more inspired by all the talent that is displayed here; so I've decided to start working on more projects.

I've come across a problem, twice now, working with grommets. I'll explain the best I can. My first project I encountered this problem I had mad a corset type top out of a vinyl/latex type material. Now, I've just finished a project with a pair of boots: I cut the back open all the way down the seem, measured and marked where I wanted to put the grommets, then used a whole punch to make the hole. Oh, the boots are made of some type of stretchy synthetic leather. Then I proceeded to set the grommets with that archaic looking device that comes in the pack. The one that requires a hammer. So after they were set, I laced them and this is when I noticed that some of them could just pop out due to the stretchiness of the materiel. Same thing happened with the corset top, however this was not as stretchy.

Has anyone else had this experience? What should I do to keep them in? I thought that using rivets, because they have a backing, would be better.

I'm sorry this is so long. Thanks for any advice anyone can offer.
