1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / ooh i want it! any ideas on how to make this? on: February 06, 2005 01:20:40 PM
So, I've found my PERFECT dress. For anything. There's nothing I HAVE to have it for right now, but I just love it so much, that I'm hoping to get some ideas on how to make it. See, I can't buy it because.. it's a doll dress.

I don't care about the jacket, but I am so in love with that dress.. it's grannnndddddd.

If it's easier to make, I won't mind the sleeves being more like this style (another doll dress is the only example I could find, even though I thought this sleeve would be easy to find photos of..) http://www.jerrolddewolfe.com/champagnecocktail_pic2.jpg

I was thinking my best bet is to find a skirt pattern in that style (I'm not advanced enough to do this from scratch), then a shirt pattern, and just connect them and then make the belt somehow.

I also really like the buttons on the back, but if I can't have that, whatever.. I'm flexible. I could also maybe do snaps, then glue buttons on, so there's at least something back there..

the one in the middle is freehanded acrylic that says "danger danger high voltage" over and over again.. it's not quite finished yet, as you can see. still not sure if i want to do it to the strap as well or not.

all made from old clothes, except the black canvas, that was left over from another project.

the one in the picture above is a mini (you can tell by the edges of it). i didn't notice until you brought up the headphone thing.. yeah, the full sized ipods have a centered headphone jack.

ahaha my lining ended up inside out because i'm a doofus, but i don't really mind cause you can only tell by the exposed seams and stitching. that's what made me mess up anyway, the fact that the fabric was pretty much the same on both sides. but from the outside it looks great, thanks for the tutorial!!

oh man.. hand basting it first probably would have been a reeeeeeeally good idea, but i didn't do that. i did it by machine for almost all of it and it worked really well.. until i got to those side panels, the curved bottoms.




i don't think i've ever had so much trouble sewing something. and my class was over before i finished it and i knew my mom's machine couldn't handle it, so i did end up hand sewing the binding on the other side panel. it didn't look as nice, but oh well.

thank you!! that helps a lot!

i am not really attached to the collar or slit pockets, so if i run into problems with those i will probably just go along with whatever the pattern is.

i thought about the shoulder pad thing earlier, but i have a blazer that used to have them in, and the shape of it is fine even after i cut them out. so i'm thinking if i made a blazer meant for shoulder pads but left them out, if it that meant it'd be the same cut as my current blazer, i'd be okay with that.

edit: heh, it got resized... here's the link so you can read the stuff: http://rilma.net/jacket.jpg

i'll probably redo this sketch a million times until it's perfect since i'm not getting a good sewing machine until christmas.

does anyone know a really good pattern i could use for this? preferrably one by Simplicity since i know i can find those at the local walmart. thanks =)

yep, i'm not really talented enough to work w/o them unless i am just reconstructing stuff.
10  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Re: what's the difference on: December 09, 2004 04:00:51 PM
with a screen, you have an actual screen that you are pushing ink through. you use some kind of emulsion to create a stencil, but that stencil is put onto the screen, the rest of the screen is blocked off, and then ink is pushed through. this allows for good detail and a really nice even spread of ink w/o using a lot of it.

with stencils, you just make a stencil and roll ink over it.

i'd say stencils are easier for home projects, but screenprinting is more professional.. but the standard screenprinting methods require a lot of materials, so stencilling is more convenient for most craftsters.
