21  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Re: Tshirt with a twist on: March 10, 2006 06:42:51 PM
Thanks everyone.  I did the edging on the bottom and now it's all finished, and I have a new shirt to wear tomorrow.  Take that husband.  lol  It's a good thing for him we don't have much say in dressing each other, I can think of a ton of things in his side of the closet I'd like to see gone. 
I added another pic in the original post so you can see a close up of the trim.  It's not the best, but it gives you the idea of its style.

The sewing magazine Threads just had an incredibly great article on making built in bras.  Halter styles included.  Definately check it out, they always have great info.

I'm so excited to be posting something here.  I just noticed this board yesterday, and I couldn't wait to get something up!

I'm most comfortable in t-shirts, and I think the cut of them really is one of the best styles for my body.  But I'm always looking for t-shirts that aren't too lame and don't look too "laying around the house".

I made this one today from scratch.  I made the pattern by tracing a t-shirt I bought recently at Torrid, and then I put this together with that pattern.

I'd love to know what you guys think.  Is this a yay or a nay?  Honesty is great, I already know my husband is thumbs down on it.  But he's kinda down on anything different, so his opinion's a bad barometer.

Here's pics:





Probably can't tell, but there's a little button on the top of the sleeve split.

I was also thinking that I could sew the bottoms of the sleeven together with a little button, and it would look sort of peekaboo.

Also, should I hem it like a regular shirt hem or should I add the green edging to the bottom too?

Okay, Go!

ETA: The last picture, a close up of the trim and the button on the sleeve.  The trim is two tone loops, cotton I think.

So, I'm considering my turn in the crochet olympics a success.  I'm not sure if I really deserve the gold because of my failed attempt at my first event.  But I suppose on an event by event basis, I get the gold for the event I settled on.  I did create my mil's hat in two days, so I guess I get the gold in that event.  Especially considering all the preparation and cleaning that goes into a big overnight trip from the in laws.  Anyway, here's a picture:

Thanks Margarita Miss... He wanted it for his swimming class, so the vinyl pocket inside was for his trunks or whatever so water wouldn't leak through to the outside.  If I were to do it again, I think I'd maybe do a pouch type pocket or even a separate pouch instead of the way I did do it, which was make one round end the pocket area.

Thebagfairy, Yep, that's embroidery by my Brother PE-300s.

I love this look.  It's a really great shape with the bandeu under it.  Your work is sooo very impressive.  I know most of your pieces are custom and lots are for modeling and videos... do you ever have any in the um..., let's say, men's magazines?  My husband subscribes to one, and it seems like every issue, at least one of the models is wearing something crocheted.  And when I point that out, he says, you're looking at her Shirt?  Sorry, off topic, just thought that was funny, lol.  Anyway, I'm always wondering if it's something that you created.  Can you let us know?  Any in the latest SI Swimsuit Issue?  Just being nosy.  Cheesy

A nice rsc edging is always really good looking for boys.  It's sort of got the look of cording or rope.  I used here in a felted purse pattern to replicate piping:  http://www.beppycat.com/Patterns.html
Good luck finishing up!  Go Craftster Olympians!

I had to change projects too... I see it as being in another "event".  I ran out of yarn for the tank and am on a yarn diet at the moment, so I was disqualified for that event.  My new event is taking place between now and thursday nigt.  I'm trying to make a sun hat out of crochet cotton for my MIL before they get here for a big visit.  So that's my challenge, and it's a big one for me.  Only two days, plus all the cleaning and getting ready.  So, it's not the skeleton, but it'll challenge me, as I've never done one before.  Cheesy
29  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Pattern for Sampler-Hearts and Pearls on: February 01, 2006 02:47:08 PM
Hey guys.  I just wanted to let you all know that I decided what to do with this pattern...
See, since it's a Sampler sample, I didn't want to just give it away, since that seemed unfair to Sampler subscribers, to contribute a freebie would just be cheap.
So- I'm going to put it on my site for just a dollar, since I want anyone who wanted it to be able to get one.  It's up now at www.beppycat.com  for sale under patterns.
I figured you might be curious about where it might be after the discussion of the Sampler and how to get it.
Sunshine to all!
30  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: How do you convert knit yarn gauge to figure out crochet gauge? on: January 20, 2006 08:51:45 AM
One of the best ways I know to substitute yarns is to find out the meters per gram or yards per ounce, or you know, the yards per fifty gram ball of both yarns.  If yarn A has 350 yards per 50 gram ball.  And yarn B has 348 yards per 50 gram ball, they are of a very similar thickness and could probably be interchanged.  But if yarn C has 96 yards per 50 gram ball, you know that that's a yarn that's way too thick and won't be able to reach the correct gauge.

Another way is to just ignore the fact that you'll be crocheting it.  Say, if yarn A works up to 5 sts to the in in knitting and yarn B works up to 5 sts to the inch in knitting, they will both work to similar gauges as each other when crocheted. 
Hope that helps a little!
