me too! I just graduated with honors in "Clothing, housing, and design" so I thought that the girls and guys I met there would stick around and we'd do recon's together until the end of our days -sighs dreamily-. Actually I didn't think that, but I didn't think I'd be a loner! And myy friends who do do crafts, do scrapbooking, which I'm not fond of. I live in the city, but we're only probably about 500 pop. above being officially called a city, so I still consider ourselves a town. LEt alone the fact that 75% of the town are mexican mennonites so.... GR! lol, from crafting, to raving about my town. Yay, for me. Yes, but I agree with you, Effylicious. wow, that's an awesome name.

Ha! Sory, they're all pretty funny stories. I'm a bit of a pyromaniac too, and I did the exact same thing. I was making little invitations to a party I wasn't having.... It was 3 in the morning and I was bored!  So I decided I wanted to burn the edges. I got through maybe.... Twelve invitations smoothly and my dog came and bumped my knee. I didn't see her so I jumped, dropped the flaming paper and it landed nicely on my puppy SadSad. Luckily, she just singed some hairs around her ears because I picked up the big ball of flame by instinct, but ?I have burn marks all across my wrist and hand. Now, my dog won't go near me if I'm sitting at the table, and I don't touch a lighter or match unless it's for a smoke. And even then, I'm always scared someone dumped gasoline on me in my sleep and I'll end up like my icon guy, who is quite amusing actually....

I got mine yesterday!! I have photos too! Thank you so much Simply!!

The front of the skirt. And my lips shirt  Tongue. The trim around the bottom of the skirt is also around the top.

The Side, I thoguht it was the coolest thing ever that my nail polish matched! Yes, I'm graduated and I still wear hot pink nail polish Embarrassed Cheesy

The money-making shot! I think in this picture you can see the slight pattern to the fabric, which I actually really love!!

My purse and Adorable little kleenex holder! I love that! When I first ssaw it my first thought was. "Wow, something to put my imaginary cell phone in." But fortunately, that idea crashed iand burned when I saw it same with a little pack of kleenex!

Close up of my beautiful purse. I got this package five minutes before I had to leave for a party, and I didn't have time to change into the skirt so I just shoved everything into that purse and took it with. I got lots of compliments! Grin


 And the inside of the purse of course.


Me Modelling Everything... In a freaky pose.


Thank you again Simply!! It's  all so great!!!! And the skirt fits perfectly!!

Thanks for the advice. The black fabric would be a whole lot easier. And then with the black she could just paint her walls white and red, no? ha, I'm so glad I have my own place so I can do as I like. Well, it's an apartment so I guess I can't Paint whatever I like, but my landlords pretty nice when it comes to decorating. So, thanks. And LRS, how much do you think the faux fur would cost?

Okay, my little sister, She's probly... 13 or 14 now, wants to redecorate her room. And she wanted alot of things black but of course the parentals nixed that. So, she wanted Black walls and bright white and red furniture. PArents said no. Any ideas how I could try to persuade my parents in private to let her do her room with a little bit of black? I mean, black can make a room feel really classy, and she's fourteen! Why not give her a bit of freedom. Okay, and if she were to be able to, would you need to put a primer on the wall before the black? And how easy would it be to come off? I'd be doing the painting and I'm a little scared of messing things up.

wrong board, should be posted at Discussion & Questions.

Edit: Okay, that's better.

Well, it all depends what look you're going for. Do you have a particular idea in mind?

Ah, I see. No boning ,that's a plus for me, it takes me forever to do that. The skull hook thing is so awesome. I love that pattern too. Brilliant. THanks. I am going to start onces I have Brocade. Faux Suede is a good idea, but our fabric stores don't have that.

in all honesty, I am a more experienced sewer then my mother, when I found this at her place she almost made me take it.  Roping her into it would only make the work all the more tedious. I have made a historic corset before, just not with brocade. I've been looking for the right costume one like Schmoo's, but they didn't seem like the right ones. If you find a really good costume corset I'd love you forever.  How much more difficult is Brocade then a silk weave to work with? I've heard it's quite difficult but in the end it looks great.

I love this top!

If you post pictures while you make it you'd be MY personal hero.
Do you think there is any boning in it.
And what are those metal things in the opening?

Katana the Glass Tamara

To answer your question. There is boning in it, as do all well-made corsets. And the metal things in te opening are..... Some sort of hook and Eye set? I'm guessing.

McCall's was good, thank you. But I found pattern Butterick 12744bk at my mothers house the other day, and I found that maybe the bottom two might look fine. What do you think?
