271  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: Bad Idea??? on: February 11, 2012 12:07:41 PM
The last one, absolutely the last one. If you're almost hourglass-y, it will totally nip you in at the waist with that wide, fitted waistband. The deep V neckline will flatter a larger chest, and the skirts with petticoats underneath will provide volume to balance you out and that much fabric sweeping around you will be spectacular. Avoid #3 if you are larger of boob, since that neckline will give you a monoboob of epic proportion. I think #2 is a non-starter; if I'm being brutally honest I think it's kind of ugly. Also, without a degree in engineering to fabricate some kind of scaffolding in there, I think you're going to run into boob-age issues. #1 is cute enough, but it seems a bit blah really.
Which ever you go for, the key to a showstopping appearance is to make sure the thing fits you like a glove and is perfectly finished A quality fabric will really pay off, especially as the majority of store-bought gowns don't exactly employ the highest quality of component. And wear it with your head held high knowing that you look bloody amazing!

Love it! The print is so cute, and the gather on the bust is adorable. You could totally winter-ify it too with knit tights, boots and a cardigan or blazer.  And I know what you mean about strapless bras too, pretty sure they're actually trying to injure me...

I stinkin' LOVE those shorts! I love the contrast between the vibrant orange of the paisley (OMG LOVE vintage African fabrics) and the dark bias binding. I totally hadn't noticed the pattern going the "wrong" direction. I absolutely have to find that pattern on Burdastyle and try it. Especially as my other half was reading over my shoulder last night and snorted in disgust at the shorts. I think I shall make them in the amazing whale-print flannel I have in my stash, and wear them specifically to annoy him because I think they're fabulous Cheesy

Oh gosh, I'm having the opposite problem. Winter has been really mild here in Massachusetts, and I've had no need for winter clothes. Dressing for work in driving me crazy because I want to be wearing all my fall colours but I have to wear black and white... I'm not a big fan of commercial patterns (being somewhat short of money, I like the free patterns on Burdastyle etc) but I love the style of this dress so might need to try this one and get the fantastic black and white robot fabric I've been lusting after...

It has pockets?!?! Oh my gosh I'm in love. I adore the shape of the bust and POCKETS! Oh my... The blue patterned fabric is wicked cute too. What's the back of the dress like? I assume from the images that it's a halter neckline, but is it zippered in the back or the side?

Oh, that sounds do-able. However, I don't have a breadmaker. Would mixing the dough with my stand mixer or by hand work? Does it need time to rise and then be knocked back before rolling out? Sorry for the barrage of questions, I'm kind of excited by how easy they sound (for some reason I'd always assumed they would be a complex little beastie to cook).
278  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Wicked cute infant hat version 1.0 on: February 01, 2012 06:52:54 PM
Everyone needs a collection of ridiculous hats. It's just a fact.
I've just rediscovered knitting, and found a fantastically soft, textured yarn in the box of weird and unloved yarns in the basement.
One of my best friends from high school is expecting her first baby any day now (in fact I think she reached term today).
Obviously, these three facts led me to knit a hat for Peanut when he or she arrives. I'm rather proud of how it turned out. I didn't use a pattern, I just had one of those eureka moments and knew how I could make it.
Sorry for the shoddy picture quality, I can't actually find my camera right now, I'll try and put better pics up tomorrow, but here we go...

I might pick up some more yarn and make a hat like this for myself. Who doesn't love them some tassels, I ask you?

Oh my god I love muffins! They're one of the foods from home I really miss. Would you make this English girl a very happy dinosaur and share your recipe? They look utterly perfect!

Just remember that the zig-zag stitch is your friend, and you shouldn't run into many gremlins.
