Hello, my name is Katana, and I am an assasin!!
Sorry about the major cleavage shot, but I am definately drawing attention there instead of (why would i tell you what I don't want you to notice?)!! ha ha. But really if you want to know the hard part about sewing this dress, it's all right there. The straps are cut from an old tank top, but instead of using the little plasic thing to connect the adjustable strap to the other ribbon bit, I used an O-ring on both sides.
And the dress is basically two tubes with minimal shaping. (by minimal, i think they're sortof an a-line shape) hemmed top and bottom. the cleavage gathers are easy- it's just the extra fabric gathered and stitched to the center of the solid dress. then it draped down and I turned the whole deal inside out and stitched the backs together. so basically it's two tubes of fabric, sewn around the top excepting the part from the armpit to cleavage. This was a UFO for a long time, so I don't know how long it took me.
and it was for my birthday, and i keep editing it because apparently i can't do pictures right anymore!!
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Your opinion on Flattering? Yay, nay, and how? on: August 11, 2006 08:06:56 PM
I am making Pattern New Look 6457. I looked at all the craftsters' examples of this pattern on here, and after basting everything together, I've decided that if it's going to flatter me, it needs a fuller skirt, with less gathers. I've already cut out the skirt pieces, so what should I do? These are my thoughts......

1. I can't do a circle skirt. Not enough fabric/it's too late.

2. Should I add Godets? The skirt is gathered already, will it look funny?
3. Should I eliminate the gathers?

4. Could I make it a gored skirt? I'm not sure how to go about doing that? 

Or do you think that i'm just being picky...

you could cut it into more manageable pieces. And then frame them in purchased frames, as a "series" of art/map. like, this artwork:

Oh yes, I remember. I don't remember telling you that such scarves are one of my favorite accesories, though. I thought of it whenever I saw your address! well I'm glad you've got a signature now! I can be forgetful in that department.
I'm so glad we got to do a second swap together! It was wonderful! It was the highlight of my day. Especially since it had been going rather poorly. I got clocked in the back of the head with a plexiglass sign front when the wind blew it down. I'm still sore!

Yes, I do! I just got it today, and there are no pictures yet but there are in my package, including my own bad grammar:

an amazingly beaded lighter sleeve- it's made entirely of seed beads: blue and white and black and yellow and orange and red with a zigzag pattern, with a beaded tassel-like loops at the end. it is gorgeous. i could never make something like that. well... maybe in a million years. it's great.

and this little compact that has these elegant ladies on the front, smoking french filters and it says Vanities of 1938. i think cigarettes fit in there too but i haven't checked, and there's a fancy ribbomn on the side. It's very elegant flapper-era. I would like to think they would have such things in small elegant purses, which would look like:

the purse D made me, which is elegant and silver and has tiny little handles and a delicate purple butterfly and a magnetic snap and a light colored lining and is stiff and great and i can't wait to use it.

And a dozen slices of fabric including a gauzy scarf thing. (has D been going beyond post stalking, and reallize that I love 2 such scarves to wear in my hair and in belt but often don't because *i've worn them too many days in a row*??!!!) She said in her great little note that she knew I liked random things, it's true! and sent various kinds of ribbon, and these stained glass window things.

Basically an amazing package, and I hope I get a chance to take pictures! Thank you SOOOOOO much.
*definately don't want to be a closet smoker anymore with rad accessories like this!! In fact, I was so excited i opened it at work! Wink

oh ya, and some fabric flowers and a pattern for a sweet dress/jacket- IN MY SIZE. beyond rad.
