1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Nee a checklist for redoing a guest bath from ceiling down to floor on: March 30, 2011 07:45:37 PM
It's a tiny full bath, but everything needs to be replaced.  I have some ideas to do at least part of the work, but---where to start???  I was thinking of pulling everything out, and now where to go from there?  Thank you everybody for your help!

Kookaloo Star, this is pinkropers again. I am finishing the picot edging around the scarf now and will do the roses and stems. I think I'll use the pattern's leaves but will use another rose that is comfortable to do.  It spent two years as a UFO and it's time to finish it up. Will upload photos soon. Your's must be finished by now. Your's looks very pretty.

Taking in those side seams with the faced armholes and pockets would give you very bulky seams as well as making the fit narrower.

I would put vertical darts on both front and back.

Have her put it on wrong side out, and pinch in at her narrowest part, slightly above the natural waist, and use safety pins to position that. You'll have two in the front and two in the back. When you achieve a flattering fit, lay the dress out on a flat surface and lightly pencil in your darts ending in a point under the bust, and ending in a point above the hips.  I have done this for myself. She will still need to use a tank top or a tee shirt.  Smiley

Those are very, very pretty.

When I was about 9 or 10, my cousin had glued shells and all kinds of macaroni in a pattern all over a cigar box. It was the most beautiful thing I had EVER seen and I had to make one.  My parents had to spring for a can of spray paint.  I think my Dad got the pleasure of spraying it. Mine was copper.

Now that I've seen your project, I want to make another one and guess what, I've got a cigar box in the craft supplies!

That 18K paint is something else, isn't it.

Show us something else like that, okay?

I just now saw your post and HAD to answer!  I am making that scarf!  It's for a silent auction at my choral group's fundraising concert and dinner which has an Irish theme.

Here's my take.  Using two strands was just too bulky for me.  So I'm using one, with the K hook, and it looks very well.  Very textured appearance.  I'm almost finished with the length, and intend to use the edging the pattern calls for.  I just love those pointed-looking picots.  I may or may not use the rose in the pattern, but will definitely use some roses and leaves.  Oh yes, and in the cream color.

I have not learned to upload pictures yet, but I need to soon, so will try to post a picture.

Looking forward to seeing your's finished, and why don't you model it for us?

This is a suggestion about the gown situation.  I made one for my grandmother out of a blouse pattern that I made in a dress length out of a poly/cotton so that it would be crisp looking.  The pattern had a pointed collar, a couple of pleats in the shoulder seams, and sleeves that were slightly puffed with a band, just above elbow length.  By buttoning down the front, I felt it would be easier for her and her nurses to maneuver it.  By using the blouse pattern, I thought she would feel more dressed in a crisp blouse type garment, than wearing a nightgown all the time.  She was very tiny and this worked.  She was 98 at the time.
