1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Fabric Estimation? on: October 04, 2012 10:39:25 AM

I am embarking on a tulle skirt project. Specifically, this one: http://media-cache-ec6.pinterest.com/upload/258042253620129183_SpPs7j6B_c.jpg (because I have abundant time.) For  a flat five footer 14/16 gal.

I have made tutus before for babies and small children, but nothing like a long, full skirt like this. Anyone here with a good rough estimation? Or an idea of how I can estimate it? I'm just no bueno, without a pattern or some direction in terms of fabric sizes. Thanks in advance, all you lovely craftsters!  Smiley
2  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Popped Popcorn Recipes/Ideas on: April 19, 2011 03:30:02 PM

My roommate works at a movie theatre, so we come into possession of a lot of movie popcorn. Question is, anyone have a good recipe idea for already popped popcorn? Popcorn balls? Can I crust popcorn onto meat somehow? Popcorn fight? If you have any good popcorn recipes, please share your secrets. =)

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Fake flower/ivy help! on: July 17, 2009 07:59:15 PM
Long time forum stalker, first time poster haha. I finally finally will have a long-term living arrangement which means I can do some serious interior decorating! Yay!

My bedroom is going to be "forest/garden inspired" and I'd like to drap ivy garlands from my numerous bookshelves and around my curtains/window area. I'm going to need a substantial amount and my question is, does anyone know where the best deal for fake flowers/ivy can be found?  Are the big-chain craft stores the best deal or is there a place online that has some sweet deals that anyone knows of offhand?

Thanks in advance for all your help!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: Curvy Girls Dress on: September 16, 2007 07:31:32 PM
Second the bigger boobs thing- and I wear a C-cup. =/.
I have a small waist and I wish things were tighter there.

I really have issues with pants.  I have large hips and some tummy so I need something that fits there so I don't have dreaded muffin top. BUT for whatever reason- large hips = giant crotch and/or giant legs n thighs. So although I have avoided muffin top- my legs look at leatst a couple inches bigger than they need to be. Something's gotta be sacrificed. And it is never flattering.

Really rich colors tend to look great. Like plum, dark red, forest green, navy, burnt orange, gold (not that metallic cheapy gold). Pastels and lighter colors never did much for me except as accent colors. They work really well for things like tank tops, undershirts, etc. They help make clothes pop.

 Please- no neon colors. This is not the 80s nor do I want to look like I lack taste. No florals either. Fun, funky, modern flower patterns are okay though. 

V necks are usually good, as long as they aren't ridiculous low v's.  Halters can be incredibly flattering as well- providing they are done right. Don't make the chest area  fall out all over the place. One of my favorite dresses I ever bought was from HotTopic like 6 years ago. It was a halter with a sweetheart neckline, smaller around the waist, enough support for boobs, and was A-line.
Vintagey styles work well because they make many curvy woman look outstanding.

I'm not a fan of my arms and the best sweaters I have are 3/4" length. It's flattering and provides some warmth. Usually long sleeves cover up too much and the sleeve itself is too long. Short sleeves show too much depending on my sleeve there is. Cap sleeves are my enemy.
Peacoats look cute as long as they are short and aren't doublebreasted. Single breasted looks hot and will flatter everyone.

I hope this helped, I kind of just looked around at my clothes and thought about what I liked and didnt like about them.

I live in the city- but Moon isn't that far away. We need more Pittsburgh crafters!
