1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Anthropologie Smart Aleck Skirt on: March 22, 2007 02:21:27 PM
Does anyone know of a pattern that would resemble this skirt?

Any help is greatly appreciated!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Anyone ever made M5232? on: December 25, 2006 08:13:04 PM
I can't seem to get the search function to work, and no reviews come up on patternreview.com, so has anyone made this?  I was thinking it could be a relatively simple dress for my Sadie's dance in February (I'm thinking I"ll make View A), and also, if you have, how do you think it would look on a sz. 12 body? Thanks!
3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Fake blood to put on paper? on: October 19, 2006 05:18:46 PM
I have seen pages here for fake blood for costumes, etc. but for a school project (that actually has nothing to do with Halloween but is focused on murder, so I thought this board was appropriate  Grin) I wanted to put blood splatters on some papers/pages, but wasn't sure if the recipes for blood on fabric would work and haven't found anything online.  I was thinking about mixing teriyaki and red food coloring to get it the right amount of "crimson", but now I"m not so sure....any help is greatly appreciated!
4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / baroque satin on: August 19, 2006 06:12:01 PM
I'm going out tomorrow to buy some baroque satin for my homecoming dress (it's on sale! I'm not THAT overeager....well, maybe Wink).  My question is: as a novice sewer, will the satin be a hellish experience for me taht will make me want to tear my hair out (like I've heard brocade can be), or will I survive?  Many thanks to anyone who helps!
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Anyone made Vogue 2882? on: July 29, 2006 07:29:20 PM
I would love to make Vogue pattern 2882 for my homecoming dress, but I'd hate to buy and make it and have it look extremely unflattering or be impossible to do.  Has anyone herem made it?  I mean, does it look ok on, like, a size 10 or 12 body, or do you need to be a stick to look good in it?
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Pattern for a bebe skirt? on: June 09, 2006 11:27:43 AM
Does anyone know of a pattern similar to this skirt?


I'm in love with it, but not the $80 price tag. 

Any help very appreciated!
7  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenge Theme Ideas, Etc. / The Look for Less--Craftster Style! on: April 20, 2006 10:11:13 AM
Ok, it's official:  I need to stop watching the style channel while on school holiday.  If you haven't seen the show The Look For Less, they get 1 hour and $100-$150 to recreate a designer look.  Well, everytime I see it, I always think that it would be so much better if you made the clothes!  So, this is my idea.  Every craftster would pick a designer look that they liked and make, either by reconstructing clothes or sewing from scratch, a recreation of it.  They would post how much they spent and the outfits side by side, and people could vote.  What do you think?
8  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / Pattern M5050 on: April 16, 2006 10:21:54 AM
Has anyone made McCall's pattern M5050 view A before, and, if so, could you rate the difficulty?  Also, does anyone know of a good pattern for a plain long-sleeved shirt?  I can't seem to find one ANYWHERE I've been looking which strikes me as strange.  Thank you!
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / The Angel Of Music Sings Songs In My Head.... (Pants) on: April 14, 2006 03:23:50 PM
I have a pair of jeans with these HUGE flares that I wrote lyrics to Phantom of the Opera songs all over...the only problem is, the fit of the jeans sucks.  I would like to turn them into a skirt, but I also don't want to use any of the fabric from the crotch or above.  Do you have any suggestions for a different waistband?  I have used the bottoms of t-shirts before, but I'm currently out of shirts to rip the bottoms off of (and the skirt in question was made out of extremely lightweight muslin/cotton, not denim) Wink

Please help!  After all, I've been sick all this week with the crafting itch.
10  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Crafting for a Cause and Volunteer Hours on: April 10, 2006 04:49:26 PM
In my state, there is a new law requiring a certain amount of volunteer hours to graduate.  While I plan on doing a Project Linus project regardless, I was wondering if hours spent crafting for a charity count as volunteer hours.  Any help would be very appreciated.
