1  Looking For Print Used in Beckerman Sisters Collection in Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions by malkatz on: January 23, 2011 08:55:51 PM
The Beckermans used this print in several different fabrics. I am looking to find information on it, if not a link to purchase it.

Anyone have any tips?

2  In search of- VERY unique reptile print fabric with iridescent sequins. in Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions by malkatz on: January 21, 2011 10:14:30 PM
I know this is a long shot, but I was wondering if anybody recognized this fabric, or knew of any lookalikes offhand (I found a few, namely one on eBay.)

Here are some shots:

In my long, long search, I did manage to find a picture of the actual fabric, but it was not for sale. The colors came off a little different.

Comparison shot:

Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

3  Matelasse apparel fabric? in Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions by malkatz on: January 21, 2011 05:59:14 PM
I am recreating a blazer, and noticed the fabric, which was described as a linen, has a matelasse-esque quality to it.

In my searches, I have only found upholestery and bedding fabrics with matelasse. Am I missing something?

Could anyone give me tips? Please note I am making this for someone with a budget, so the fabric can not be too expensive.

4  Hoping for tips or a tutorial... (recreating boots) in Shoes: Discussion and Questions by malkatz on: January 21, 2011 05:47:10 PM
I was hoping somebody could do a tutorial on recreating Bobbi Blu halters. They are knee high boots with suede accents.

They were featured in Repo the Genetic Opera and have been discontinued. I am lucky enough to have obtained a pair, but most fans are left doing without, sitting in the corner with jealousy.

Here is a picture:

The correct color combo is the one pictured above, but the blue is actually what I call a blueberry/navy without the flash. Here is a picture without flash:

I have a million billion pictures, but I just wanted you to see the basic idea. Please feel free to PM me or comment here for more pictures if you are willing or interested in posting a tutorial.

You'd be doing a lot of girls a favor! Smiley

5  *UPDATED!* Which Pattern is Best? (Receating an Existing Dress) in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by malkatz on: January 21, 2011 05:23:58 PM
First of all, let me apologize if this is in the wrong section. This is my first post, and I just discovered this site yesterday!

I am very new at sewing, but my seamstress friend is teaching me to sew, and we are doing orders for costumes from Repo the Genetic Opera. (This isn't a very complicated or esoteric piece, so I didn't feel it needed to be in the cosplay section.)

Anyway, I am in between two patterns, and was hoping someone with more experience could give me some insight? I plan on buying the pattern before I meet with my friend.

Here is the dress I am recreating-

I am in between these patterns:

http://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m6283-products-13586.php?page_id=108 (combination of the strapless front and short straight skirt deviations)

http://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m5881-products-10118.php?page_id=108 (model C)

http://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m4440-products-116.php?page_id=108 (B, the yellow-green illustration)

http://www.simplicity.com/p-2314-junior-dresses.aspx (model A)

Please let me know what you think, and if you have any additional pattern suggestions.

Thanks a bunch! Smiley
