2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help with neckline shaping on: March 21, 2010 05:35:24 AM
This is my first time knitting anything other than a scarf and for the life of me i can't make head or tail of these instructions. Nevermind the fact that i'm using different needles and different wool, and a different gauge than specified so instead of working at a 17st to 24 row gauge for 4" i'm working with a 12st to 14 row gauge. I've been changing the pattern as i go along because i have a decent enough working knowledge of knitting to do that but even if i hadn't changed it up i still wouldn't understand what it's asking me to do.

The pattern is the easy weekend pullover on redheart.com
http://redheart.com/FreePatterns/tabid/1283/Default.aspx

i'm stuck here
Divide for Neck: K10 (12, 14, 16, 18, 20), turn and put
rem sts on a holder. Bind off 1 st at neck edge every P row
twice 8 (10, 12, 14, 16, 18) sts. Work even if necessary
until armhole measures 7 (7, 7 1/2, 8, 8 1/2, 9), end P row.
Shape Shoulder: Bind off 4 (5, 6, 7, 8, 9) sts at beginning
of next 2 K rows.
With right side facing, leave center 34 (35, 37, 39, 42, 43)
sts on a holder; join yarn to rem 10 (12, 14, 16, 18, 20) sts;
K to end. P 1 row. Bind off 1 st at neck edge every K row
twice 8 (10, 12, 14, 16, 18) sts. Work even if necessary
until armhole measures 7 (7, 7 1/2, 8, 8 1/2, 9), end K row.
Shape Shoulder: Bind off 4 (5, 6, 7, 8, 9) sts at beginning
of next 2 P rows.


n.b. if i'm stuck here i'll probably start tearing my hair out again with the front neck instructions so if someone could explain that as well i'd be greatful.
Thanks.

It's possible that the direct link will bnot work because you have to join the corsetconstruction group on yahoo but it is worth it.
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/corsetconstruction/files/
also another link that might be of you the merrycorsetier livejournal. i mostly just looked around and and picked up things.

well done for making a corset with such little experience with clothes making. it looks good. a few quick questions though.
were you using boning if so steel or plastic? is it multilayered? i.e does it have a lining and strength layer and then the fashion fabric
when i was making my first corset i found some great instructions on one of the corset making forums on yahoo, it was a great help and reasonably clear. i can either send you the document or try to find the link if you want it.

thanks for your comment ludi

Hi,

What an interesting concept, a cocktail dress to a swimsuit. Does the dress lift more to become less dress like? how is the shrug attached?

Even though you didn't have much red, it turned out great!
The dress does lift a fair amount more it can ruched right up and then the chain is tied underneath it to keep it up. the shrug is seperate and worn when it is being used as a cocktail dress. Thanks for your comment.
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / two different coursework projects: outfit and patchwork dress (image heavy) on: July 16, 2009 06:26:26 AM
I'm fairly new here and this is my first actual topic, so i thought i'd post some picture some my coursework for my a levels both As and A2.
 
My As brief was a mix of traditional japanese design and current english fashion, all whist expressing individuality.  it consists of a pair of jeans in a very heavyweight stretch fabric, a kimono stlye bishops sleeve top and a underbust plastic boned corset so not a proper one. my friend alex is modeling this one.





although you cant really see it from the pictures because there are no close ups the bottom of the jeans unbutton at the sides.


My A2 project was for a company called From Somewhere, they asked me to design a cocktail dress that could be converted into swimwear, hence the ruchable side and the underpants. the fabric was given to me and it was all scraps because fromsomewhere is a pre-production recycling company, making the pattern was b*tch because of it especially since i barely had any of the red but i wanted to use this colour scheme (i neary changed it twice) there are concealed channels in the side that hold the chain that was one of the hardest parts. the dres doesn't completley fit my model but thats because the model it was made to fit flaked out last minute before i had to hand in my project and my friend Kati modelled for me as a favour in my garden.











i have such great friends lol Smiley
comments are very welcome

i was looking at your skirt before i was a member and squealing at it's amazing awesomeness, i mean i did a patchwork dress for my a level project so i understand to some extent the work that goes into something like that. Plus the colours and everything about it was so amazing, i was horrified when i read that some people had ridiculed it, it's such a fine piece of art, so BOO the naysayers! i really want to go and make one but i know i have neither the time nor patience, so to let you know if you ever consider making another one i would so buy it off you!
