1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: 3:10 to Yuma jacket (help please) on: March 04, 2008 02:56:14 PM
I have found a pattern set that is very similar to the jacket that is being asked about. The thing I'm not sure if it still made. It is a pattern for a standard civil war uniform (pattern no. 7274 from simplicity). Or you could an equivalent from another major pattern company.

What this idea for challenge. The idea is to take a clothing pattern and redesign it to make something different, from what was intended for the pattern. Eg: making a jump/flight from a "civil war" uniform pattern.

I know it sounds just as crazy as "circuit bending". But it could work.

Sorry about. The person I asked was looking at a different loctite.

Here is a url that has tutorials on making handfans, but they are based on the rennaissance era ones.

Here are some quotes I found in my "page a day" calendar.

"I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving."

"It is the province of knowledge to speak and it is the privilege of wisdom to listen."

Both are from Oliver Wendell holmes

I asked someone about the "Loctite" stuff, and he told me it is used to prevent bolts from coming loose.

The idea is taking a pattern based on older style clothing and rearanging them into something interesting. Sort of like creating "elephant pants" from 1790-1810 era pants or rearanging simplicity cival war uniform patterns to make an elegant jacket.

Also the idea looks into using fabrics/colors that normally suited for that era.
