So cute, and I bet this would work with the Sprout baby food pouches my baby uses too. Hmm, I could start opening from the bottom...

Darling felt board and I'm even more delighted by your celebration of exactly who this little boy is!! This rocks for sure.

I'm making a felt board for this Christmas, but so far I just have geometric shapes.

I don't know where you could get a pattern, but it does look pretty easy to do with a lycra camisole plus some drapey fabric, all dyed to match. Good luck!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / too-big armholes? on: September 19, 2009 09:04:39 AM
Hello! I'm appealing to those more skilled at sewing for a smidgen of advice. I've lost some weight and am much smaller in the bust now. I have a knit tank dress that is very forgiving and can fit over a large range of sizes, but now the armholes are really big and hang down to the bottom of my bra band. What is the best way to fix this? The three techniques that come to mind are

1. Lift at the shoulders and sew across the shoulder seam (with dress inside out, of course). The problem with this is that it lifts the neckline quite high.

2. Sew up under the arms, continuing the side seam of the dress.

3. Bust dart? I am aware of these but have never attempted one. It's sort of an angled line pointing from underarm to nipple, right, pulling in extra fabric from each side?

I'd love to hear from anyone who has experience in this kind of alteration. For the time being, I just wear a cardigan over the top.  Roll Eyes Many thanks!

Hello, I have a copy of Adorn Fall 07 to give away. (The subhead of the title is "the crafty girl's guide to embellishing life.") I'll be happy to post it within England. Oops, edited to say within UK.

Hi Dollyrocker,
Since it is Ready made and not Bust are you still interested? I'd like to get rid of it, so could you drop me a note by say Sunday? If I haven't heard back since then I'll open it up to others and then to the recycling bin it goes.
