11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Finding Salvaged Fabric? on: February 16, 2010 05:53:00 PM
I am wanting to make my wedding dress out of fabric which has been salvaged from other sources.

This ( http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=30730846 ) is the dress I'm looking to make. So I'll need satin/silk/lace. I tried to see if anyone on FreeCycle had old gowns they didn't want -- no luck so far. I've checked etsy and ebay, but haven't really struck gold. Are there any resources I am missing?
12  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Adding a top to an underbust corset? on: January 04, 2010 04:14:08 PM
Okay so I have a problem.
I couldn't find a good overbust corset tute/pattern for my prom dress so I decided to make an underbust and then add a top to it. I was thinking of adding a bra to the top and then covering it to make it look like im not wearing my undergarments on the outside ( Wink) but the bottom of bras arent a straight horizontal line. My corset has a straight horizontal line. I'm not sure what to do and I need help! Any other ideas?

14  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / I need help finding a pattern!! on: November 04, 2009 04:25:55 PM
Okay, so I've been named FCCLA Queen for 2009 at my school. I'm going to be in a Christmas parade and I need a formal dress. I'm looking for a specific type of pattern.

Preferably, the dress will be fitted (made with a thick satin type fabric) until the knees, and then into an a-line mermaid skirt with a slight train in the back. Anyone know where I can find something like this? Even a simple gown pattern with an a-line skirt would be okay. Help please! The parade is December 5th..
15  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Craft Supplies Swap?? on: November 01, 2009 07:43:16 PM
Would anyone want to start a crafting supplies swap? I can't start it, I don't meet the requirements but I would definitely like to participate in it. I have a bunch of craft supplies that I probably won't be needing. (Some yarn, fabric, beads, buttons, hair ties, CDs, squares of tile (I used some of these to make coasters). Could swap out small/large flat rate boxes of stuff?

Any takers?
16  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Skirt to nightie! on: October 21, 2009 09:26:12 AM
Okay so I had this skirt which was rather unfortunately shaped, but it had amazing lace and satin underskirt. So I had to do something with it. Here is the skirt.

Here is what I ended up with. I love it, it's really sexy but girly at the same time. I kinda messed it up because for some reason I completely forgot all my knowledge about elastic waistbands.  Embarrassed It's kind of hard to get on/off but for my first try I'm happy with it. Now I just need to find more ugly clothes with great fabric....  Wink

I got the skirt at Goodwill btw.
17  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Lace Skirt.. What to do? on: October 20, 2009 11:05:32 AM
Okay so I've got this not so fortunate looking skirt with a fantastic lace overlay and satin-type underskirt. I want to do something with the fabric but I don't know what. And I don't want to mess it up because it really is absolutely lovely. Take a look and help me out please! =)

Also a tutorial or pattern for whatever you suggest would be great!


I finished it. =) I couldn't wait to make something out of that skirt!

Here's the link to the post.
