1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: One Skein Stirling Cloche NOW WITH PATTERN, pg. 6! on: April 28, 2007 10:42:23 AM
Yeah! That green cloche is adorable!

I'm sorry to hear that the yarn was troublesome for some of you...it IS expensive but I only used half of it (and that was doubled) so you could split with a friend or use the rest for something else. 10 bucks ain't bad. Mohair loops are really unique in my opinion, but all the yarn subs so far look great.

Thanks for all the nice remarks! I heartily encourage all of you to make one, it took no time at all and this was my first project with A) a real sewing machine and B) stretch fabric. I've worn it quite a bit this week, it's super comfy!

So I took a break from my new-sewer loves Ms. Wendy Mullin and Ms. Hello Kitty (I have the tiny but great Hello Kitty machine from Target.com) to test out my big girl machine (a Janome L-344) on this Craftster creation:


Have to say, I was not impressed with the new machine. It could just be some normal growing pains but it was stiff and cranky. Anyhow, I'll get over it. Using a stretch (lightening?) stitch I whipped up a dress that I affectionately call my Dobby Sack, then had a little 'Going Grey' photoshoot since I've been finding silver strands lately and it's bumming me out!

The raw boatneck was a little too Flashdance for me so I used scraps to wrap up some straps. I love how it turned out! Before I did that I folded the raw armhole edges in and they're staying put.

It really is just a rectangle!

The rest of the fabric tube turned into scarves. I slapped my label on that but only because the giftee insisted. All I did was cut it!

Okay, that's quite enough out of me for now. Crafting is trumping my schoolwork a little too easily now that I know the instant gratification joys of easy sewing...

I would like to marry Wendy Mullin, I'm just saying.

Your shirt looks great and that blue plaid is very cool.

I'm a *total* newbie at sewing, but I bought myself a machine and am pretty determined! lol! Do you think that it would be in any way possible to make this top longer?

I mean, obv, I know I can make it longer, lol, but will I have shape issues?
Thanks for any replies!

I'm pretty sure that the top is cut from a generic 'front' piece that is longer for the other dresses, so you should just be able to not cut at the 'top' cut line.

Speaking of cutting--as I mentioned, I cut the wrong size (size 10) and bought another pattern to re-cut it. This means I have a totally usable pattern available for whoever wants it. For reference I am 5'8" and about 130 lbs, 34B bra size. I think these tops fit just fine but they are a LITTLE tight under the armpits. First person to send me a personal message with your address gets the pattern! I hate to waste!
