1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / DVF Wrap Dress Question on: September 25, 2006 10:07:31 AM
On Diane Von Furstenburg's wrap dresses, how is the tie attached?  It seems that one side of the tie is attached to the front flap which then wraps around the back and is then tied in the front, but where does the other side of the tie come from and what is it attached to?  Anyone know, or should I make a trip to Bloomie's to investigate?

Thanks so much for the input and good luck with your business!

In your FAQ section you may want to include a description of the heavy machinery used to assure customers that these are strong/safe collars.

Feel free to PM me about being involved in your focus group.  I'd be happy to offer input as a dog owner.

They look great and professional. 

A quick question:  I was warned off of creating a dog collar for my dog because I was told you need a heavy duty sewing machine to ensure that everything is secure (and the stiches won't pop as your 50lb dog lunges for a squirrel).  What machine do you use or how do you ensure stich security?

Haha poor thing.  First time I've seen lace up attire for dogs.

The purple pair is my favorite because there's so much detail that looks tricky to do.    I like these better than those vans all the kids wear nowadays Smiley.

I'd be interested, but it takes me forever to pick out fabric.  If you guys are down for long fabric sessions, let me know & I'll be there!

Candyskulls, are there any good fabric places in Brooklyn that you know of?

Other than the panic attack, did the brown tape form look like it would turn out okay?  I just found some tape today so I can make one this weekend and I haven't heard too many reports on them.

That's really cute.  How is the fit?

I also think it is an issue with how the bobbin is currently sitting in your machine.  Keep reinserting the bobbin, try different positions.  You don't have to shut the case off from your view before trying to turn the wheel.  Leaving it open will help you see and understand what is blocking the complete wheel action. (Make sure the power is off for your safety.

My mom got me this machine when I moved out.  Thanks Mom, but can I have your old Singer instead?  I struggle constantly with loading the side loading bobbin on this machine compared to the top loading bobbin on my Mom's Singer.

Here is how I made my faux wrap dress.  Mine is a faux wrap dress, because I didn't want to worry about keeping things tied tight or putting a fastening on the inside.

Piece A is the front of the dress, piece B is the other part of the front of the dress.  Piece C is the back.  I attached both of the fronts to the back at the shoulders.  Then in one fell swoop you sew up the side seems by sewing through the overlapped piece A and B as well as the ties so it looks like the picture below.

I hope this helps anyone wanting to do the faux wrap version.
