1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Re: Lace sleeve peasant dress - help on: January 23, 2013 03:23:30 PM
If you have a peasant blouse pattern, this will be easy.
Otherwise, the front and back are rectangles with a slight angle cut at the top where the arm holes are.
Cut the lace the same width as the sleeves.  No pattern?  Cut the about 2 times as wide as a normal sleeve.  Start with wide lace, since it is included in the drawstring/elastic casing. 
Attach the sleeves to the front and back at the top of the bodice pieces.  They will not go into the armpit.  You will need to hem the rest of the arm hole on the bodice.  When you sew the sides, mark the stopping point, since you won't sew clear up to the lace cap sleeves.
Fold over the elastic casing all the way around the top (sleeves, back and front).

I don't know how to help but it would make an absolutely gorgeous wedding dress!
If you make it, I want to see pictures Smiley
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Thoughts on making a skirt like this. on: June 02, 2012 11:48:03 AM
I think it is all two layers, one slightly shorter than the other but the same length all the way around and then gathered in the front, with a layered skirt under it.
I think either pattern would work, just make two with one shorter and add a ruffle to the bottom of both.  Then make the ruffled underskirt.

Don't read ahead.  Many patterns don't make sense until you get to that step.
Find your pieces, pin them with all the arrows going the same way with the grain (if they have arrows) and cut them out.
Then just read one step at a time.  Some of them won't make sense at first.  If you have a specific question, ask about that.
I would be happy to help if I can Smiley

Wow that turned out awsome!  The tiniest details are so sharp.  I love that it is on the staircase which is normally such a blah part of a house.

Thanks everyone!  I knew this just had to be shared.  He isn't really the type to show off his decorating skills.   Smiley

I'll let him know that other people liked it as well as I did.

I can't believe you did that with such a teeny tiny space and made it look so good!  Wow.  I love the whole thing but the dress form looks so fabulous.

I am jealous of your craft space and never would have thought you could do that based on the before pics.
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Attaching knit top to cotton skirt. on: July 21, 2011 06:40:32 PM
I know this is old but I have done these quite a few time.  As long as the cotton is cut a bit fuller than the tank top, it will pull over fine.  Even A-line skirts work without zippers or elastic.  I used a regular straight stitch but you can also use a zigzag stitch for easier stretching.

I don't know how it will turn out but there has to be a good way to dye it.  People dye wool and leather all the time.  I hope you show us a picture!  I think a black or purple sheepskin would look awesome.
