1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / altering a pattern on: December 02, 2008 11:16:10 AM
I came upon a HUGE pile of FREE beautiful vintage patterns from the 30's - the 70's.  The main issue is that the tops/dresses are all printed for a bust of 36 and mine is 39(ish).  I also am not all that familiar with pattern sewing. So, that said, anyone want to try to help me figure out how to modify the patterns so I can get them to fit my big boobs? (There is also a similar, though not quite as dramatic waist-related issue, but I figured I should do one thing at a time). I'd really appreciate it!

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / planner/wallet/purse on: August 31, 2008 11:46:36 AM
ok - so here's my situation.  whenever I go anywhere I take my wallet out of my purse and just carry it.  There is no identified reason why I do this, but I do, so it is part of the issue.  Inevitably I end up at the doctor, hair stylist, etc without my planner, or to do list b/c I have just brought my wallet.  I am trying to figure out a way to combine the two into one carrying device.  I envision that it should have all the wallet components inc. a change purse with a zipper and a slot to insert my spiral planner.  Here's the thing, I can't figure out how to draw it out so that the coin purse and cards don't interfere with writing on the pages - you know?  I don't want it to be all bumpy.  I was thinking of having some sort of "flip wallet" - sewn to the planner cover only at the top so that it can be flipped up when I need to write.  Any thoughts?  I could really use some help on this one - I've been carrying this idea around for a long time with no success!  THANKS!
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / amy butler weekender... on: July 23, 2008 12:45:10 PM
ok - so i mostly sew stuff by sitting with something that resembles it and taking it apart over and over until it is (basically) what I am shooting for.  I've done very little sewing with a pattern and have learned the (very) little I know through trial and error (which I promptly forget every time I sit in front of the machine and have to screw it all up again to remember that's not the right way Smiley  ).  Anyway, I also have a dinky little white 1409 machine.  Do you think it (or I) would be able to survive the creation of an Amy Butler weekender bag?  I know they are a challenge.  Would love your insight!
