That's awesome. How lucky your swap partner is! I would never think to put the needlepoint in the bag like that.

Thank you, Thank you. The draping on the bottom of the dress was pretty tricky. Let's see if I can explain it in a way that makes sense Smiley First I made a very full skirt, next I made an even fuller and longer skirt. Then I just grabbed handfuls of the outer fabric and tacked it in place with a few stitches. The only real tip I have is to be really patient! And some of my tacks didn't look very nice, so I found pretty rhinestone button-y things to cover up the stitches. You can't see them very well in the photos, but there are buttons inside each gather. I really wasn't sure how to start, so this was how I decided to do it. I didn't use a pattern when I made this dress, but I just found a similar looking gown in a McCall's pattern #5321, check it out.

Okay, I'm way behind in posting this! I am a fashion design student, and I got engaged 3 years ago while in a fashion design class. So for my big huge final project, I made my wedding gown! It was so fun. It was about 3 months of constant work, but it was worth it. It is inspired by a dress I tried on at David's Bridal, and could not afford, so I made it myself. Here are some photos my photographer took at the wedding, I didn't really get a chance to take close-up, technical photos of the dress yet.

Yep! It's my pattern. It's crazy easy, and it's reversable. I love the extra long ties, because I like to tie in the front  Smiley

I made this half-apron a few weeks ago.

Okay...I just saw Alice in Wonderland, and I'm dying to make the red dress she wears as Um in the Queen's court. Does anyone know of any patterns similar to it? I would rather modify a pattern than go it alone. Here's a link to a pic of the dress:

Thanks so Much!

I need some ideas for gifts for a baby shower I'm going to in March. I do not know the mother very well, it's my husbands family. She's having a baby girl, Alexis. I sew, but I'm not very good with knitting or crochet. I have a lot of soft flannel I could use. I'm planning of making a stuffed animal, but other than that I'm not sure what to make? I don't have any kids, so I'm not sure what would be the most useful to the new mommy-to-be!
9  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Victorian Renovation on: August 14, 2009 09:19:31 AM
My husband and I are getting ready to move into a huge victorian-style home. It has already been renovated a little, but we want to finish it out. It is a large house with gorgeous, hand-carved trim that is natural oak. It is full of awful wallpaper that is all coming down. It has a lot of old-time details we love, but our style is a lot more modern. We really want to keep the integrity of the home while still putting in a little bit of our style. Any ideas for combining the two styles?
