1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Lacy beaded choker patterns on: July 27, 2008 01:35:18 AM
Hi there!

I'm looking for some beading patterns that are sort of lacy looking and would be ideal for a choker. Something with a nice victorian feel to it would be ideal, and free is absolutely awesome.

2  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Alice in Wonderland costume on: September 16, 2006 04:22:04 AM
so, I've gotten it into my head that I want to make an alice in wonderland costume for some specific occasions,

So, my question to you is this- how would I go about making a dress that is easily recognized as alice in wonderland, but is rather untraditional?

I'd love to do something with some ornate finishing details, maybe add some pearls or rhinestones in somehow somewhere (but where and how?)

I was thinking a nice little vintage/rockabilly take on it, maybe something with a pencil skirt and halter top with an apron.. a nice halter top, kind of like that leopard dress of gwen stefani's.
I'm a bit of a curvy girl, too.. something that looked somewhat flattering would be nice..

any suggestions, pictures, well wishes, etc are appreciated.

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Chandelier crystals? on: February 27, 2006 06:03:52 PM
As part of an upcoming costume I'm making, I need several chandelier crystals-- about 25 longish drop shaped ones, and similar amounts in small, medium, and large faceted disk shaped ones..

Other than ebay, are there any reliable and cheap places to get these online? I kow our local craft store carries them, but lord, I'm facing about $100 if I pay their prices..

Any and all help and suggestions are appreciated.
5  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Costuming Portfolio? on: December 23, 2005 10:40:43 PM
I had a quick question..

I'm working on applying for an internship with the Oregon Shakespeare festival. They have openings in their costume shop, but they want to see a portfolio. I don't have a formal portfolio put together yet, but because of this _awesome_ opportunity, I'm working on getting one together.

So, what I was wondering is..

What sorts of things need to go in there? I realize that sketches and pictures of finished pieces need to go in there, but is there anything in specific that I should make a point of including? do you think that adding historical pieces would be a wise idea? Should I include detail shots?

any and all help is appreciated, thanks ladies!

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Jacket measurements for a 4 1/2 month old? on: November 18, 2005 02:44:04 PM

I wanted to make a christmas present for a 4 month old girl in the shape of a little jacket.. I've got some nice fabric and everything all picked out, but since she lives about 2000 miles away, I can't exactly measure her right now.

When christmas rolls around she'll be about 4 1/2 months old, and I was wondering if anyone happen to know approximate measurements for a kid about that age/have a little one they could measure?

I just need the normal jacket measurements-- arm length, shoulder to waist length, and shoulder length.

Thank you SOOO much. any and all help is appreciated.
8  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Garment Latex samples? on: September 14, 2005 02:07:24 PM

9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Black and white stripes? on: September 04, 2005 09:21:23 PM
I'm going crazy-- I'd LOVE to get my hands on some fabric that has really WIDE black and white stripes-- not pinstripes! All I can find is duck cloth, and I was hoping to find something that'd be more suitable for a dress.

Does anyone know where I can find this?

you'll seriously be my hero if you can help me..
10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Halloween Wedding gift for my dad? on: September 04, 2005 06:56:54 PM
So.. my dad's getting remarried to a w*onderful  lady this halloween, and I'd like to make them something.. It doesn't have to be useful, they've got everything they really need.

They both have pretty good senses of humor, and ideally I'd like to make them something that they could laugh about..and something that played on the halloween theme at least a little

Any ideas?
