I love using the sequin strips to cover the bras! I may have to try that, I am wanting to make myself some sequin-y things!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: How do you think the back of this dress looks? on: August 23, 2009 09:00:10 AM
I have also seen dresses like this made with 3 scarves, 2 upper points of the scarves for the front "cup" parts, and one forms a higher back. So you basically have one v in front, and 2 v s for each armpit. Then I usually see either a gather like in this one (just put a casing on the inside, and a button hole in the seam in front where you want the bow to come out), or else a ribbon tacked on the front seam and tied in back. This option uses more fabric, but does allow for a strapless bra, or a halter or racer back depending on how thick you do the straps.

Perfect! I've been wanting to make a rainbow dress for my little one, and I have a small bit of rainbow striped fabric that should be just about right for this sort of thing! Very cute.

OK, now I know the perfect thing to do with the jeans and shorts my daughter has that fit fine in the waist, but are getting a bit shorty-short... Adorable!

Also, your girl is so cute, I just want to pick her up and put her in my pocket!

Lovely! I'm thinking about duplicating it, but adding some fluttery butterfly sleeves... I have 2 sheer scarves that I pretty much never wear, but might look super cute this way over a cami or cap sleeve shirt.

Ooooers, fantastic skirt - I've wanted a patchy rainbow skirt for a long time, and maybe this is the inspiration I need to get off my duff and make one!

Well, I couldn't find any of that stuff at Joann's, so I got some thermal knit and some red fleece (so that it would be wearable in wintertime!) - the thermal print has cute little colorful apples all over it!

Also, I was measuring and setting up a cutting layout for my "pattern"...

Only to realize that this dress is a cross between a bliaut and a Herjolfsnes Gown...

I wish I'd have figured that out sooner, before I spent a couple hours working on this pattern! Now I just need to see if it works...

I think I want this in red - little red riding hood, you know? Either that or some really sassy multicolored fabric.

I saw some stuff on JoAnn's website called raschel knit:
link to see

It's 100% polyester, which might be itchy, so I was thinking to keep it a wintery weight, I could just line it in fleece or flannel or something warm (looks outside where it's 25 degrees)...

Do you think something like this would work? I've never sewn with it before, but I do have a serger and a sewing machine - would this stuff need to be serged?

So I found a coat that I absolutely LOVE. But they are out of stock. OK, not a problem. I sat down and looked at all the photos and figured out the basic pattern for making it myself.

The problem is, I have no clue what kind of fabric to make it out of!

Mongolian winter hoodie dress

It says it's a wool acrylic blend - and I don't have to find the exact woven pattern this is - I just want something similar, something that will be a warm weight, that will flow and flatter like this stuff.

Any ideas?

I knitted a womb as well - I got my tubes tied in September, and I knit it the week before my surgery:

PS: double stranded frizzy boucle on dpns is an uncomfortable idea!
