You think a skirt that isn't so small would work? Like from a bedsheet instead of a pillowcase, cause minis look wrong on me (i am really short) and I happen to have a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle bed sheet just waiting to become a skirt...

i think so, you could make it w/out pleats, gathered a bit so it's a flowey... that might be cute Smiley

whoa... gee, i can't believe how many replies i got on this thing. i kinda died from this website for a while... but thank you guys for all the response.i apoligize for never getting around to making a pattern for this skirt,but congratulations on those of you who figuired it out on your own!

i'll respond to the questions about the waistband. the t-shirt i used for the is a stretchy material, i think it was an old turtleneck of mine from when i was little, all lycra and 80's style. i just cut a straight line across about 7 inches up from the bottom of the shirt and sewed the un-hemmed edge to the pillowcase fabric. i made it twice as big so i can fold it over, because i like the look of fatty type waistbands. the shirt i just had on hand, and it just happened to be the same size around as my waist, so i was like hey... i'm lazy, this would be easy. plus i try to use old stuff i have lying around, or else it just sits there while i keep buying and buying new old stuff from thrift stores. it's a sickness i can't stop.

you could definately use regular fabric, remnents, whatever, as long as it has some stretchy give or you can use lorraine_anthony1's trick and use a snap or velcro fastener... or buttons w/buttonholes... cute, yes? if you use a stretchy material just make sure to measure slightly smaller than your waist size so it stays up.

again, i am freaking amazed at all the response here... wowzers. i don't know what else to say. thank you. Kiss

yah i totally had the sheets, and the pillowcase, and the action figuires... how come nobody was in love with jonathon? he was so the best one, and now he owns a successfull realty business... i mean come on? if it wasn't only for that damn tiffany, coming between our love. psssh.

besides that pitiful outburst of pent up emotion.... good job on the skirt  Grin

hahaha, thanks for the compliments, i really apreciate them... but what you can't see it that pictue, is my big ol' booty... i'm not very slender, but i've got a badonkadonk for days, which this dress kinda clings too and i felt self-conscious about, but my roomate assured me, it clung in a sexy j-lo (i hate that i just wrote that) kinda way. but if you've got a narrow waist and a sexy behind, you could try... making the waistband smaller, so the bottom part of the dress flares out a little, or you could just cut the dress in a more hourglass shape, rather than a tube. you might want to play around with an ugly shirt just to get the pattern right... i dunno. anybody else have any ideas that might work for different body shapes???

good luck Smiley

Congratulations on actually being able to complete the hat. I tried to make it 3 times, and gave up after almost tearing my hair out trying to decipher the pattern. Maybe I will give it another go, seeing that it looks so nice.

thank you thank you, it was feat for sure, the hardest thing i've knitted so far... i had to rip it out 3 times, the 3rd time i was over half way finished too, when i realized i had missed a row of the pattern and totally botched the whole damn thing.

if you give it another go though, i'll be happy to assist w/any problems! or attempt to anyway Grin

i believe i used size 8 needles, regular, but you could use circular needles i suppose... and those are cables... my first attempt!

well this is hardly exact, but hopefully an experinced knitter can use their skills to make their way through this sorry attempt at a pattern:

cast on 36 stitches

rib (knit 2, purl 2) for 6 rows. after that begins the cable pattern...

row 1: k1, p2, k6, p2, k2, p2, k6, p2, k2, p2, k6, p2, k1 (ya dig? there are 3 seperate cables going on here, we're repeating the pattern all the way across)
row 2: p1, k2, p6, k2, p1 (x3)
row 3: k1, p2, slip 3 stitches from left needle onto a cable hook, knit next 3 stitches as normal, than go back and knit the 3 stitches from the cable needle onto the right needle(the twisty part of the cable)... p2, k1 (x3)
row 4: p1, k2, p6, k2, p1 (x3)
row 5: k1, p2, k6, p2, k1 (x3)
row 6: p1, k2, p6, k2, p1 (x3)

repeat rows 1-6 for eh... about 5 inches (you can make them longer, shorter)

then wherever you are now is where your thumb hole is gonna be. this is where you need to get creative... i hope you all can tell me how you do this... but i'll embarress myself now by explaining my method, i seriously know there must be an easier way.

i did 1/3 of the row and then slipped a stitch on the right needle, wrapped the yarn around the stitch to the front, and then slipped the stitch back to the left needle then turned the piece(the wrap and turn as it is so called) did that for about 2 inches... then i used the other end of the skein to knit up the other 2/3, and then i just went all way across when they were even to each other, and voila... a hole.

okay then just continue the pattern for a few more rows, then rib the last 6 rows, and you're done, with the first warmer... just stitch up the seem now, unless your on circular needles. they are about 10 inches when completed.

*for the other arm make sure you put your hole on the opposite side, or you can be like me and forget that little note, woops Tongue

i hope that makes some sense, just a little maybe... i dunno. i remember that post w/the long white cable armwarmers too!!! dangit was it on here? i'm pretty sure it was, but i can't find it again. poop.
