This sounds great!  I'm going to use the freezer paper idea, to transfer some embriodery designs my husband is making for me (he's a graphic artist, and I'm doing a retro quilt for our bed).  I'll post pics in the loooooong future, when it's done! Smiley

What an awesome tut!  Thanks for the info, I couldn't figure out why my bag wasn't turning out....needed darts of course.  Why I know this for clothing, and not for purses is beyond me! LOL   Roll Eyes

495  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: ?? Quilt Block A Month GIft SEt (gift)?? on: November 21, 2005 04:45:02 PM
I was just looking at block patterns today.  Just google something like "free seasonal block pattern" and see what you get.  I left out "seasonal" and found links to about 1500 block patterns.  I'm at work, so I can't look at more than a few, but my new project of learning to quilt is going to take over my life soon!!!

497  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Repairing coat lining/upsizing - 40's coat on: November 12, 2005 09:05:23 AM
I can easily check how the wool is peiced, the lining is open at the bottom (will do this later today, have a shopping date w/my mom!).

As for the armhole, it's the seam itself coming apart, and I guess my big quandry with that is the size issue, if I should wait to repair that until I figure out how to upsize the coat, or what?  I have a feeling that the seam coming apart is due to my slightly-too-large-shoulders issue, and wearing the coat anyways Smiley
498  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Repairing coat lining/upsizing - 40's coat on: November 10, 2005 09:15:58 AM
So, I have this FABULOUS coat from the 40's that I happened upon in a thrift store (how often does that happen?  I mean, really!) for freakin' $5!!  I've been wearing it off and on, but the lining needs some repair. 

It's a full length walking coat with a hood, made of a lovely deep purple wool, and feels like a silk lining.  It's probably a silk blend of some sort, it doesn't wrinkle like silk.  Anyway, the lining is coming apart at the armholes, and the pockets are just lined holes  Cheesy  I can fix the pockets fairly easily, but I'm noticing that the coat is slightly tight across the shoulders.  Since the coat is gored all the way to the neck, I'm hoping one of you more experience craftsters might be able to offer me some guidance.  I'm not sure what I could do to let it out a tad, but perhaps you all might have some suggestions?

Also, a little guidance for repairing the armhole lining would be great, I'm really not sure what to do there.  I just put my first sleeve together about two weeks ago!

Thanks for the kickass projects, inspirations and advice on here!!  Cool

Hang it in a prominent window!  ooh oh, if you're like me, maybe thread some of those fun white christmas lights around it, or just around the window to draw the eye to it.  Even with your curtains/blinds/whatever open, that'll stand out better than on a maroon door!! Smiley

So, Delores, is your site launched yet?  I don't know about the rest of the Snicket Obsessors, but after seeing your coat pattern, I'm drooling on myself waiting to see the rest!

Like everyone else, I spent the ENTIRE 3 times I watched the movie trying to figure out how Violet's costumes were put together.  I adore cloaks, but unfortunately they're not very practical in my uber-windy, rainy, drenching area of the earth. Smiley  However, frock coats and Victorian and Edwardian walking coats are all QUITE useful Smiley

Anywho...updates?  Anyone made these yet?
