1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Getting rid of duct tape glue... on: May 30, 2006 03:13:48 PM
Hey there! A long time ago i had the *brillant* ( Roll Eyes) idea to put some duct tape on a shirt. I hated what it read, but I loved the shirt. It was only two stripes of tape in the form of an X. I finally found something nicer to put on the shirt, but the problem is that even after washing and putting some stain remover on the glue, it won't leave... Please tell me there is something to do to repair my stupid idea!!

(Sorry for the bad english, i'm french!)
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Original skirt bottoms? on: April 28, 2005 02:01:48 PM
Hi.... I like making simple A line skirts using funky designs. After making a few normal bottoms and a few with ''triangles'', I am running out of ideas. Does anybody know an original way to end a skirt?

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / T-shirt resized using the safety pin corset technique! on: December 27, 2004 05:33:54 PM
Hi everyone! My dad gave me this really cool Harley Davidson, with a pitbull and "Survival Of The Fittest" written on it. Obviously, it was waaay too big for me, and I was hesitant to cut it up because I didn't want to ruin it. So I decided to do a corset in the back like you've probably already seen on this website before. Since I did this with no calculations whatsoever I had to try it on a few times to ge the right size. For the sleeves, I simply put them in a bunch, passed a ribbon through the neck hole and the arm hole and pinned the two ends together with a safety pin. Oh, and the striped skirt you see is not part of the shirt.
Here are the results! Again, all comments are welcomed!

EDIT: AWW crap I'm such a dumbass.. I posted this in the purses bags and wallets section! To proove that I'm even dumber, I don't know how to move it! Help anyone?  Undecided
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Spider Web Tutu! on: December 27, 2004 05:26:14 PM
Yay, My first time to post a project!  Grin

After asking liliesinmycereal a bunch of questions and having a major problem with cutting the bottom, I finally finished my tutu!
I used the tutorial found under the two first pictures to help me: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=17995.0
The back makes my butt look big but oh well, a tutu isn't made to be flat isn't it?

This is the front:


And back:

Sorry for the dirty mirror and the cyclist pants! hehe. that's not how i'd wear my tutu, the pants i wanted were in the washing machine at that time.
Tell me what you think of it! Any comments welcomed, I'm not scared of criticism.

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Simple Straight-cut Skirt on: November 07, 2004 10:19:29 AM
Hi everyone!
I bought some fabric to make a simple straight-cut skirt, hoping I would find a tutorial on internet... Its been a very long time I've been looking around internet, but I still havent found *ONE* tutorial to make my skirt! I am beginning to feel very frustrated... I don't want to buy a pattern because I am still a beginner, and I don't have alot of money. So if someone could PLEASE post a tutorial on how to make a simple skirt, that would help me a lot! I know making it sounds easy, but as I previously said, I'm a beginner...

This is an example of what I'm looking for- only a bit straighter.
