Amareluna did pretty much figure this out...it's on page 4 - the second try. Grin
12  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: does anyone know how I would go about making this cute shirt? on: June 06, 2005 07:45:08 AM
The description says that it is shirred - which in it's simplest form at the waist would probably be a simple tube with elastic at the bust to keep it up and then a couple of line of elastic at the waist.  The elastic at the waist is smaller than the tube and stretched to the size of the tube when sewn on - that way it crinkles up like that when you aren't pulling on the elastic.

Does that make any sense?

I don't understand why everyone is still having problems with this? I've made several since that first one and they come out just fine...

My guess is that everyone isn't reading the entire thread and actually finding the tutorial.  Roll Eyes  Nice job on that, btw.  Hilarious.
14  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: Renting, but PAINTING (OMG) on: June 03, 2005 11:39:13 AM
As a person who has painted room deep deep red (and a landlord  Wink ) - dark colors are hard to cover up.  But I do have this same policy with my renters.  Just make sure you get it all repainted, etc before you move because paying someone else to do it is expensive!

Starching is a good option - you can just put the fabric in liquid starch (can't remember if you dilute this) and then just put it on the wall like wallpaper.  Good news is it comes off really easily.  Maybe you could paint some rooms and use fabric on some - just so the moving out expense of buying so much Kilz and primer won't be so high?

Here's the official word - and if you want to buy it...its only $1970.00.  Shocked


Chocolate brown silk and cotton blend pleated knee length halter cocktail dress with a keyhole detail on front and green and clear crystals. Dress has crystal covered trim on a black silk base around the keyhole on front and on halter straps which fasten in a self-tie. Dress has a pleated hook and eye fastening panel across center of back with black silk self-tie and zip fastening on back.

I don't think the halter part of the dress is pleated.  It looks like the pleating effect is created by casings on the middle section of each piece of the top (clear as mud right) through which runs the ribbon or shiny whatever the heck that is. 

I definately think that the top is pleated - the ironing is too structured to not be and the pleating lines look sewn,  extend over the casing, and are regularly spaced.  Also - is there any chance that the tie in the front (to neck) is the same tie that extends down the front edge of the top, and then into the skirt to also be the same tie as in the back?

extra super bonus points to her for making it for me when i didn't get a package from my partner

No problem!  I'm glad you liked it!  I would have sent more, but alison still thought you were going to get something from your original partner.  The necklace was only supposed to be a "sorry you had to wait so long for your stuff" kind of gift.

i'm still dying to know how this one was made

I made it from polyclay - the picture is printed onto iron-on computer paper and then pressed on top of the clay (white only) and baked it that way with a heavy thing on it (a pottery bowl, in my case).  Once I pulled it from the oven, I pulled the iron paper (not the transfer stuff) off and made sure that the image stuck everywhere.  Once it cooled, I wrapped the back and sides in the black and pressed a ridge around the edges so the wire would have somewhere to be wrapped.  That and a little polyclay sealer and I was done.  Let me know if that makes any sense! Grin

THANK YOU!  Thank you so much for posting this!!!  I am constantly wanting to make homemade soap with added ingredient - but couldn't (until now) because I am super allergic to basically all soap except Dove.  You have either saved me or doomed me to making a ton of fun soaps now!   Grin
