1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Re: Your opinion on my web shop and products. on: June 02, 2005 04:33:45 AM
It helps to include the URL. Smiley


My first thought is that the first page is much too big. I don't want to have to scroll down on the first page I visit, you know? The header takes up a lot of space. Perhaps you could have a smaller header and put what exactly it is that you do in a more prominent place (it kind of disappears in the current header.) In the current version, I wasn't sure what you were selling.

You need a lot fewer buttons, I agree. Take a look at some other websites and you'll see that people tend to have things like:

*about us

I'd really advise going with something like that. Smiley Good luck!

Hmm- I'm careful (gloves, etc- I threw some vinegar in the initial rinse water, because I'm paranoid). How should I clean up my soapmaking stuff? Will lots of water and soap suffice? I don't want to be leaving crazy lye stuff around.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Post Colonial Culture Theft Tee on: May 30, 2005 05:23:25 PM
But... all cultures do this. Are you saying that all cultures should be confined only to themselves? That there should be no exchange? Or that there should be no exchange unless it's somehow fully realized? Are people not allowed to draw fashion elements from Japan unless they are simultaneously studying Japanese?

Are you aware that non-Western cultures do this all the time, as well? Drawing upon icons from cultures you might not understand as fully as some people believe you should before being allowed to touch them isn't somehow confined to the Evil Americans.

Culture isn't sacred, it isn't static. It's alive and it mutates and transforms, and one of the main ways it does that is through swapping DNA with other cultures. That's a good thing, not a bad one.

Culture Theft. Yeah. Okay then.

Awesome! Thanks so much! Smiley

Kristiface, what's your recipe? I'm a long-time (intermittent) sugar user, and I've never been able to get the mix right so as not to have to use strips, and I'd love to try. Smiley

6  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / cold process soap question on: May 28, 2005 06:07:16 AM
I'm new to making soap, and I've researched cold process soap-making- I'm pretty clear on it, except for one thing: after your soap has traced, and you've put it in the molds, etc, the "soap" that's left over on your implements and bowls, does it still contain lye? Or has the chemical reaction neutralized it?

I'm trying to figure out if I can just clean up the bowls and spoons with soap and water, or if I need some kind of crazy vinegar bath. :-p

It wouldn't have to be lace- it could be a strip of fabric in a coordinating or contrasting color. Or how about (grosgrain) ribbon?
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / seeking old-school bra pattern (I have a good reason! I swear!) on: May 24, 2005 08:27:36 PM
I'm a booby girl, and I want to make some summer dresses that don't require wearing a bra (because that sort of negates the comfortableness of the sundress, sigh) and I'm thinking that if I base the bodice on a modified bra pattern, that might work.

I'm not looking for bra-like support, just something that, um, keeps the girls in place. Smiley

I'm a fairly okay seamstress, and comfortable drafting my own patterns, so I know I can do this if I can just find a pattern (or at least some good images) of older bras- the kind that didn't involve stretchy fabric or underwire.

Anyone? Thank you!

Hmm- I can't tell how it's gathered in the middle, but it might not get you that much more room. Could you add a trim along the cups? (Is it a "spillage" problem? Because aftermarket trim has been my friend in such matters.)

Oooh! I didn't realize there were any patterndrafters on patternreview.com! Thanks so much!
