I love this pattern, I've made A in a cotton plaid (i really should get around to posting it!)

I have this pattern and I'm waiting to do views A and B in a wool plaid.  Actually, a couple different plaids.  I'm glad to see that it fits a real person Smiley, since I have to make my bodices longer and accommodate bigger boobs than any of the models they use in the pictures.
definitely make the bodice longer! I read a few reviews on patternreview.com and they mentioned the bodice is too short. I measured the paper pattern and then myself and i think the ladies at patternreview.com were spot on.  I added a couple of cm and it worked out perfect - I dont usually alter patterns, so yeah, if you usually alter the bust you'll definitely need to for this one!

9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / multi strand math help! on: October 28, 2008 01:31:27 PM
Hi guys,
I'm planning on making that necklace from the opening scene in breakfast a tiffany's, the six strands of pearls with the diamond centre piece (only i'm going for four stands of plastic 12mm pearl beads and using a vintage brooch). 
The bit im battling with is how long to make each strand, as they get longer further out.  How do i work it out, I know trial and error could be a goer but i'm a little pressed for time.  Help! 

for reference:
10  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Your first machine, a buyers guide on: October 05, 2008 08:22:28 PM
great thread.....I think its really important that you're able to find an authorised repairer in your area (i think sewing machines are one of the few things in our throw away society that are actually made to be repaired).......for those in Australia, a Janome is good choice as its got some ridiculously high percentage of the market and so even at the end of the earth (canberra Cheesy) you'll find someone who knows how to fix it
