1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: ponytail-hairband-colette how to?? on: March 04, 2012 10:17:15 AM
Basically, you just sew a tube of your fabric and turn it right side out.  Thread your elastic through and sew the ends of the elastic together.  Then sew the ends of the tube together.  I usually put one end inside the other and then turn the edge under of the tube that is on the outside and hand stitch it down.

Thank you!! it sounds a little bit complicated but I'll give it a try
Thank you!!,this is very helpful,I was trying to avoid the handsew part because I suck at it ,but now i know it's imposssible haha(and scrunchies!!?? I still have a lot of english to learn hahaha Smiley

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Anyone knows a (free if it's possible)pattern for this dress? on: October 27, 2011 01:39:25 PM
this biggest thing about shantung is that it sheds like CRAZY. so you'll either want to finish your seams or line your dress.
i'll see if i can find a pattern somewhere..
Thanks!! I have some lining too...just forgot to say that  Cheesy
So you want a waist seam in the front but not the back?  I don't know if that would hang right, unless the whole thing was a sheath dress, with a mock panel sewn to the front, creating a faux waist seam, and then sewn into the side seams, sort of like a sideways bubble dress.

ETA: This dress from burda style (without the sleeves) http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/60s-dress-by-alexandra would be a good sheath

This one would be good to start with: http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/do-you-like-peaches--2  You'd just fold out the pleats on the pattern pieces, and then if you wanted to try gathering the front piece, just add width at the center of that piece.
No no no no ,you didn't understand the drawings...those are three diferent dresses seen on the front.....but the patterns may work as well thank you!!!
