11  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Patterns for diaper covers? on: June 19, 2008 09:55:25 PM
Hi I'm looking for free patterns for diaper covers especially longies to make for my daughter.  TIA

ETA: free part
12  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Update I bought a Baby Lock! on: June 18, 2008 12:28:56 PM
I went into a Bernina dealer today and I am so in love with the machine.  But the basic Bernina serger is $800 and the Brother serger that I was looking at is around $250.  I'm pretty sure the stitch functions are the same, so what makes the Bernina that much better? 

Brother 1034D 3/4 Lay-In Thread Serger
Bernina 800DL

UPDATE: I went into a sew/vac local store today and came home with a 1990 Baby Lock Pro Line.  It's pretty solid and the same price I would have paid for the Brother new.  Really hoping I'm going to get many happy years from it. 

13  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Ottobre Outfit for the birds! on: May 17, 2008 11:48:16 AM
This pattern was super easy to do and I think it turned out adorable.  I am totally in love with biased tape edges these days. 

And in this shot you can see the matching shorts a bit better.

14  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Added action shot in last post. Ladybug dress with homemade bias edges. on: May 02, 2008 12:18:25 PM
New Look Pattern 6688 which is so simple to do!  Instead of lining the top though I made bias tape from the co-ordinating fabric.  This dress went together in less than an hour.

15  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Smocked Dress for Older DD on: April 25, 2008 09:49:22 AM
Here is my first completed smocking project.  It is so not perfect but I think it came out okay for a beginner.  I cursed through most of it swearing I'd never do another one but I'm sure I will.   Cheesy

16  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / My version of the pettiksirt. on: April 25, 2008 09:47:18 AM
Inspiration and link to tut came from https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=240577.0.  But I couldn't find nylon chiffon and couldn't stomach doing all the edges with bias tape so I used cotton knit for the waistband and tulle for the skirt.  I think it came out pretty darned cute!   Wink

17  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Fashion Magazine or a Pattern Book? on: April 24, 2008 07:12:08 PM
It looks like our next tour of duty might be Turkey which lucky for me means inexpensive fantastically good tailors and seamstresses.  So I already have a bolt of tweed that I bought for $15 at JoAnn's and plan to stock up on more fabric if we do go (fabric is expensive and hard to find the right thing there).  Here is the thing the tailors there don't use commercial patterns.  You show them a picture of what you want and they draft the pattern and make a muslin mock-up to fit your body.  So I'm wondering is there a good fashion magazine for plus sized women (I'm a 20-22) that I can subscribe to for ideas or should I just buy a few pattern books (like the McCall's or Vogues you flip through at the fabric store)?  I know I want a nice suit (or two), a formal ball gown, and some day wear (I'll probably be teaching at a university so I'll need to dress way more formally than I currently do as a SAHM). 


18  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Blue Toile Dress and Hat on: March 12, 2008 06:37:59 PM
Pattern is a 1972 Simplicity, hat pattern is a freebie on About.com.  Toile fabric is from Wal-Mart and cream is vintage fabric that has a hand stitched hem which I managed to keep on the blouse.  DD loves this one so much she cried at bedtime having to take it off.

19  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Where to find rick-rack and ribbons on the cheap? on: March 12, 2008 12:43:57 PM
A few years ago I bought a ton of elastic on Ebay for cents on the yard (I am still using the stuff its great!) but now I want to buy a bunch of rick-rack and ribbons but I can't seem to find a good cheap source.  JoAnn's is bankrupting me with their tiny packets!
20  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Can this pink skirt be saved? on: March 10, 2008 10:43:14 AM

This skirt was a disaster from the word go.  I cut the fabric based on my waist measurements and adding two inches to the bottom and so on for the layers.  Well I seem to forget that I have hips and an ass.   Tongue  So ended up having to add side panels. 

This is what I wanted it to look like.  What can I do? 

Any help is very appreciated.
