nikschaf, i kind of went off of a baby onesie.  i tried to see how much they overlapped the shoulders, and adjust for the "scale" of an adult shirt....  you NEED extra fabric at the shoulders, so this works best with a shirt from scratch, or a REALLY huge shirt.  if you try to lap the shoulders on something that fits correctly, it'll end up too short
   i can try to work on a tutorial if you'd like, but the gist is adding about 5 inches or so to the shoulders (front and back) and lapping them.  i find it easier to make adjustments to the neckline after i get the sleeves right.

very cute, nice tute!  (lame rhyme?)

totally dig the contrast of the classic halter style with full skirt, and the unexpected dino print!

thanks, guys!
 i've made a few attempts at this neckline before. i'm still working out all the kinks. the main thing is having enough fabric towards the shoulders to lap over each other, and not make the shirt too short.
  i loved the original, so i didn't want to do too much to take away from the image.

so, i acquired a craftster shirt, and did what only a craftster fan would do: i cut it, changed some stuff, and sewed it back together. Smiley


took in the sides a bit (more fitted to curves), neckline was changed to envelope style (think: baby bodysuit) with a gray band.
136  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / adding color to pleather? on: October 16, 2009 06:53:43 PM
i'm making Misfits outfits for my daughters. i have silver croc pleather for Roxy's pants, but would like to add some color spots to make them more true to Roxy's outfit. is there a way to paint on the color splotches (that WON'T result in peeling and cracking)?

yes!  i love this recipe too!  i like to make them (and all my chocolate chip cookies) using dark chocolate chips, because what isn't better with dark chocolate?
