so how did it go???  did you wear your dress???

No, I didn't wear it because I didn't have time to hem it. I brought this diagram along with my entire art portfolio, and the woman said she really liked my work. She'll let me know if I got the job before summer is over - I really hope I dooooooo.

That looks great! I'm assuming that the polyester doesn't have a stretch? If not, did you account for that in any way? And, as for not putting in the waistband, did you just sew the straps to the skirt directly? Thanks a lot, and I really love the dress!

No no - my dress is very, very stretchy. I just didn't feel like putting the waistband in, so I sewed the straps right onto the dress. This was really just a practice dress - next time I will buy better material and make a waistband.

Thanks for the comments! I have the interview on Friday - it's a paid apprenticeship for fall - i would get to make 5 yards of my own screenprinted fabric and be an artists' asisstant. I don't know anything about dying polyester...I'm sure the label on Rit or some other dye would tell you.

Thanks Rostitchery! I made this diagram of my dress for an interview for an apprenticeship at the Fabric Workshop in Philadelphia. My only modification was that I did not include the waistband. "Above the bust", "under the bust", and "at the waist" refers to where the skirt sits. The dress is worn backwards in the "above the bust" styles.

*EDIT - I just noticed how grainy the image turned out...the fabric is navy with white and red splotches...these photos don't really show much detail.

I think you should be crediting Mental Floss for those.
28  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / tutus for toddlers on: June 27, 2006 08:21:15 PM
I want to make 2 tutus for my little sisters - one is 2 and the other is 5. I found a whole bolt of pink tulle and bought elastic...should I just make a basic circle skirt with an elastic waistband to make it poof? Should I encase the elastic in the tulle or just sew it underneath the tulle?

thanks  Wink

all of the black and whites are amazing. I love the two of the men you don't know... epspecially the salesman. the first portrait (of your friend) is really amazing... you really understand how to pose people the right way. did you go to school for that?

p.s. pentax cameras are amazing. i have one, too. i'm so sad the darkroom in a dying art, because i love making projection prints.

Thanks! No, I didn't go to school for that - I'm going to be a senior in high school this year. That was taken in a pub in Philadelphia - he has such a beauuuuutiful face.

Reminds me of some recent Balenciaga.

Oh wow, thanks! - I really like Balenciaga.
