1  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / Simplicity 3885- Jessica McClintock dress on: June 30, 2007 09:25:17 PM
After taking my boyfriend to my two proms, I made him promise me that he would take me to his. When I made him promise me this though, I didn't think about how I would get money to buy a new dress (because of course I couldn't wear one of my old dresses!!).

One day though, I was working (at Jo-Anns) and found this amazing raspberry-purple silk that was clearance for $9/yard.. ON SALE 75% OFF!! This brought it down to like 2 dollars and something a yard.... and all I could think of was prom dress!! Oh yeah, did I mention that there was a coordinating silk that was something like $6/yard on sale for 75% off too? Shawl, anyone?

I wasn't completely thrilled with the outcome (I finished about a half hour before prom). The pattern was really easy.. but since I lost a bit of weight just after I made a muslin of the dress but just before the prom, I didn't have much time to alter the final dress. Thats all right, I got a lot of compliments and it did it's job.

I would definitely recommend this pattern. It worked up fairly fast. I didn't really have any complaints whatsoever about it!!

side view.. I'm not sure what the deal with this face is though.

(I apologize if the pictures are too big.. this is my first photo post and I'm not sure how to make them smaller!!)
2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / iron-on transfer to a canvas? on: May 19, 2007 08:53:36 PM
for a gift, i wanted to make a photo montage of sorts on a canvas. i had thought about printing onto tracing paper and then modge-poding it onto the canvas, and then i ran across this thread.

do you think that i could print out a picture on transfer paper and then iron it onto the canvas? has anyone tried this?

thanks for any help!!  Grin
3  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / men's sweatpant pattern? on: August 17, 2005 08:22:45 PM
i was wondering if anyone knew of/had a good pattern for men's sweatpants. my boyfriend is getting surgery done (on monday, talk about procrastination..) and is going to be bed-ridden for "five to ten days" (or, so his doctor said). i already made him a blanket for him to keep warm with (he keeps his air conditioning on at 64 most of the time) and i thought it would be nice to make him some sweats, too.

anyway, enough of my blabbing.. i'm going to search simplicity and maybe a few others.. but i wanted to know if anyone knew of a fairly simple one that would take me no longer than maybe a couple of hours to make Smiley
