1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Millinery on: December 18, 2008 12:32:43 AM
I highly recommend becoming a member of your local library.  Where I live, I have access to a city library as well as a county library, and the two combined have an impressive selection of books on crafting.  The pacific northwest is a pretty crafty place, given the great demand for rainy-day activities.  The selection will certainly vary between cities given differences in demand for those types of books.  If you demonstrate demand for craft books, you can influence your library to enhance their collection. 

Many libraries allow you to place holds on books at any of the libraries in the same library system.  They truck your books to the library you visit the most, and all you do when you go there is pick up a stack of books.  This gives you access to way more books than you'd find at any one branch, not to mention it saves a lot of time.  If you do visit your library in person, craft books are at about 741 on the Dewey decimal system!

excellent job--i'm way inspired.  i will definitely try out the sleeves on a long sweater (don't wear dresses) when i finally have money to buy a ton of black jersey to just mess with.  i like your use of waistbands at the bottoms of everything too--very professional look.

i am so for tasteful revival of the bustle!  i added some ruffles to the bottom of a hoodie i've been working on, with a few extra layers in the back.  yours is much neater looking though.  thanks so much for the tutorial--i think i'd like a skirt like yours.
