If you're flying there, avoid linen, it will wrinkle so badly it will blow your mind. Make sure the fabric is natural, or it won't breathe. Make the boddice a little looser than traditional rockabilly so you get good air circulation. Other than that, make a normal dress! Cheesy Enjoy the wedding.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / HELP! How do I make a hijab for a runner? on: March 06, 2012 09:47:15 AM
Hey, all!

Recently I started a running group with some of my friends from the military, and one of my friends found Islam and converted! She's at a place in her spirituality where wearing a hijab is important to her, but finds that it's difficult to run (especially in her home state of Texas) is the traditional hijabs she wears on a daily basis. They do make hijabs for athletes(http://www.thehijabshop.com/capsters/index.php ) but having just seperated from the Army, she really can't afford to purchase them. That's where crafting comes in!

I want to try my hand at making some good hijabs, as well as modest and loose athletic wear, for her to run in. Any advice? I know that the fabric has to be opaque, even when wet, and that she sweats a bit when she runs so moisture wicking fabric is super important.


P.S. Our group is coming together from all over the country to run the Disney Princess Half Marathon next February, and my friend wants to run in a modest Princess Ariel costume! Any tips from you guys on that front would be appreciated too!!

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / 1947 style rose-printed dress! on: June 15, 2011 08:04:25 PM
First, the dress:

So I needed a day-to-evening dress for all my vintagey events, and I found this fabric at WalMart for $1.99 a yard! AMAZING! So I snatched it up. I discovered that, after sewing the hem crooked, that this fabric runs so quickly and easily, you'd think a puma was chasing it. Never again! Never again, WalMart fake-silk-polyester shenanigans! I warn you all (also, does anyone know a way to keep polyester from running when you take a seam ripper to it?)

But it ended up working great for a day at the Flight Path Museum at LAX, and for an evening event at the Queen Mary, a beautiful art deco cruise ship from the 1930's.

The pattern was really great--I think it was a McCall's pattern-- it's a halter dress, but the pattern also features the sleeves and the backing to make it into something a little more versatile. Wish I could remember the pattern number for all of you wonderful people...

Anyway, C&C always welcome! Thanks for reading!

Neat! I love vintage hats but can never find any that go with my clothes. Thanks for the step-by-step! A pillbox is quite flattering with your lovely hairstyle--I'm way jealous. Well done!
