21  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / little red jacket on: January 14, 2006 09:05:45 AM
I've been meaning to post this for some time now. I'd like you to see the litttle red jaket I made this fall.
The fabric is a beautiful woolen deep red thing (even if it looks orange in some of the pictures, I apologize for the crappy photos).
I'm a tall girl with wide sholders so finding jacets that fit me perfectly is hard. This projetct took a good while to finish, but it was well worth it because I use it constantly. With a woolen cardigan under it works even if it's belo zero celsius.









Thank's for looking!

In Sweden, where I'm from, Tove is a quite common name...


How is it pronounced? My mom has a friend named Tova (but maybe it is really spelled Tove)? It is a neat name!

Oh, i don't know how to say how its pronounced...
OK, like this: you'd say an ordinary "To" first, like in "how to", then a ordinary "v" like in "very" and finally end it with an "e"-sound like in "elbow". Make any sense? Tove.
Tova is a Swedish name too, but not as common. It meens tangle (like in hair) and actually is a crafting technique too, wool, water and tangle  it to make it stick together...
Sorry for the lengthy answer...

I've been to Tokyo twice, so I have some feeling for the town. I do have to say that it's a bit hard to say exactly where to go since the streets have no name, and the city is a bit hard to manouver. But that's a woderful thing since it's great to discover things all on your own.
So for a Craftster be sure to go to Tokyu Hands, its a big crafty departmentstore the largest one sitting in the Takashimaya Times Square-building in Shinjuku (there is a big one in Shibuya too)
The fabric stores are cheap (in swedish standards any hoo) I think there is a chain called Toa (short for toailette in Swedish, thats why I remember...)
For shopping I'd say Harajuku, Daikanyama, Shibuya. There is a ig kitshenwaretown close to the subwaysation before Ueno (coming from he center of town)
A tip on where you can do your reading up on tokyo today at http://metropolis.japantoday.com/default.asp (in english)
and on the art scene at http://www.tokyoartbeat.com/ (also english)
And I als think you should go to Kyoto, it's beautiful

oh, I don't think this makes any sense, but I'm submiting it anyway...

Is your name tovi?   One of my good friends named her daughter that, I had never heard that name before her.

In Sweden, where I'm from, Tove is a quite common name...

I'd say go for the grapfruiit idea if you have a nicley fiting tanktop Then sew a trialdress in a cheap cotton fabric or something. Then do the changes you'd like to make, that way it'll fit you just grate.
