1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Correct waistline measurement for circle skirt on: January 25, 2006 10:17:32 PM
O.K. so here's the deal. I am trying to work out a pattern for a lined box pleated circle skirt for my DD (and possible future sale of said skirts Grin) The front will have a faced waistband with an elastic wasitband in the back. What I am concerned about is getting the proper waistline measurement sized on my pattern.

How I am going about this is I have my DD's measurements(waist size), I add on the measurements to account for the pleats, side seams, and amount of gather from the elasticized back waistband. I take this measurement and divide by 3.14(should I round the # down to 3?) and then its result by 2. With the resulting number(let's say "6") I measure down 6" from the center tip of my wedge-shaped pattern piece and swing the arc around to the other side of the wedge.

Does this make sense? More importantly...does this sound right?!

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Removing studs from jeans on: October 30, 2005 09:54:30 PM
I am deconstructing a pair of jeans and I want to remove the studs that are at the pockets and hips. Is there a method to do this other than cutting them out? I pried at them with a screwdriver and the backside of a hammer. I almost pulled out the power drill in the hopes of drilling out the backing but then realized that I didn't have a drill bit for metal!

Any thoughts, suggestions, laments?
