21  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / NEW ZEALAND / Hamilton/Waikato Groups on: January 11, 2006 05:31:16 PM
Hiya, everyone.
I just moved to the area from the States and i'm looking to join up with any knitting/sewing/crafting groups out there. Anybody interested? Or, if anyone just wants to have coffee (or a beer, whatever) give me a shout.

26  EUROPE / GERMANY / Berlin, Berlin on: March 02, 2005 06:22:37 AM
Hey, other German craftsters. I am an American living in Berlin (near Warschauer Str) ,working at Adlershofer Kostumfundus making costumes, hanging out, having fun in the snow (!). Anyone have suggestions for good fabric/sewing supplies. I hate going to KaDeWe and those giant places and want to find/support local little shops. Any hints?

You inspired me to make a dress and I did it no pattern! Just measure boobs, hips, waist, and gave leeway for leg movement. Cut four pieces from some cool sheets i found second hand(already soft and snuggly) sewed together. Added the zipper and darted to fit snug on my boobs, PERFECT! I had to add the straps cause i'm nervous about strapless, but it totally worked with out them too. Thank you SO MUCH for inspiring me..I can never thank you enough!

nope, the pic didn't work. but i'd love to see it. very proud of the pattern-less work, too. isn't it great to do something from scratch all by yourself!?

in response to kategirl's question re: bust and darts. The way that i did it, there are no darts. i used multiple panels, making the narrower as i went up and shaping them around my bust measurements at the top. so the seams basically take the shape of a princess line, right across the bust point. to do this without a pattern, try draping instead.  i'd suggest making the simple larger shape first, trying it on, pinning (or getting another pair of hands to help you pin) closer to the body until you find what's comfy for you. leave room for seam allowance an remember to leave the bottom of the panels wide enough for leg room and high kicking and swing dancing or whatever it is you're into!  Grin

draping is a great alternative to sewing from a pattern. it's fast and you can make things fit just for you. especially if you have the added convenience of a dress form.
anyway, hope that was some help.

Here's my version:
I picked up a Strawberry Shortcake sheet at a thrift store last weekend, and sort of made a copy of another dress I had.  Smiley

I loved this idea!

SoHollywood: that's so cute! good job  Grin

OK. Sorry everybody! I've just moved across country and it took me a while to get online so I'm sorry for those of you who haven't been able to see the octopus directions.

hopefully this will work.
