21  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Need some help with this dress (formal for wedding) on: September 19, 2006 05:17:57 AM
I think the dress look a bit similar to Butterick 4657.

I can never get images to post on here so it might not work. If not go to
that might work.
Good Luck!!

23  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Making Button Holes on Sewing Machine on: September 19, 2006 02:30:43 AM
I'm sorry if something lke this has been posted before. I did a search but nothing came up.
Can anyone please tell me how to make button holes on a sewing machine. Is the machine supposed to have an attachment or something, becasue if it does I must have lost mine!
Is is possible to make them without an attachment?
Also do you make the hole before or after the sewing?  Huh
Basically I know nothing about this at all! so as much information as possible would be great
Thanks guys
24  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / Re: McCall's M5094 (twirly skirted dress) on: September 14, 2006 08:36:24 AM
WOW! This pattern just arrived in the post today.
Can you tell me are the sizings American. I'm in UK so these would be different right?
I bought pattern size 4-6-8-10
So I assume that it's US sizes as there are not many size 4 girls that's for sure! (That's like a us 0!)

Ok, until I can get picture in I will try to explain.

Imagine the beginings of the infinity dress featured on here somewhere. But as all one piece so you will have a shape like an opened out (unsewn) skirt and from the middle of that shape going up you will have 2 really long "straps". cross one "strap" infront of the other as close the where they meet the other fabric as possible. Where they have folded will create the pleats that you see at the front part of the skirt as you have forced the fabric to change shape. Where the straps cross each other sew along all these sides. This will create the diamond shape at the front (this is not a separate piece). Does any of this make any sense?
 Now, where the straps are now will help to form the covering of the breasts. But this part looks quite formed and I reckon there's cups sewn in there so you will have to get some of these in your size.
You will probably need help fitting this to your self (unless you have a dress from). As you kind of nee dto size the breasts at the same time as the waist. But  Ireckon this could be done quite nicely.
Hope this  makes sense and good luck!!
PS I will try and get that stupid picture up!)

THAT dress is really pretty. you did a good job. I've been looking to make a dress like that for ages. I know you didn't make it from scratch, but does anyone know where I can get a pattern for a dress like that? (I know this is in the wrong bit, but it's so you can see the type of dress that I mean!)
