1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Help with altering a polyester/spandex jumpsuit so my boobs can breathe? on: October 27, 2010 04:34:14 PM

Hello Craftsters, I am in desperate need of your expertise!
I'm going as Neytiri from Avatar from Halloween. We have face molded latex masks, contacts, etc- the whole shebang. We ordered the jumpsuits online because we didn't want to go with just body paint. HOWEVER. The large jumpsuit I received is ridiculously tight in the bust, as in, pancake D cup boobs tight. I also know that if I sweat in this thing, everyone will see it, and it's going to be a hot room. SO, before I rip this jumpsuit apart and try to reconstruct it, could anyone please give me some advice? I'd like to make it a v-neck with no sleeves, it's 92% polyester and 8% spandex. Any tips/suggestions? Thanks in advance!
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Outdoor Curtains- Oilcloth or is there another way? on: June 02, 2010 04:12:14 PM
Hi Craftsters,

I want to sew some curtains for the outside of my windows of my house, and I have a couple questions. The windows are sheltered from the elements by an overhang, but could still get some rain depending on the wind.
I've read that oilcloth is good for outdoor use, but isn't it the consistency of a picnic tablecloth?
Are there other options you would recommend?
My favorite fabrics are cottons, is there anything I can do to make them somewhat outdoorsy?

3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Crafty Help to Make my Tree BUSHIER! on: November 28, 2009 03:37:05 PM
Hello Craftsters!
I am a bit of a lurker, but now I need some crafty help.

I have a beautiful spruce tree to decorate, and a ton of fabulous decorations, both homemade and vintage, but the problem is I don't have enough branches! I want the bushy tree covered in ornaments look, so I'm putting it out there to the craft world for suggestions.

A friend suggested wiring boughs into it, but I don't want the fire hazard of real, dead branches.
I was thinking maybe thick ribbon garlands, poufy flower-type "ornaments" I could place inside the tree, or maybe even *eek* fake boughs woven through.

ANY ideas happily accepted!!!
