Glad your friend like it... both skirts look lovely

I like the second one the best... the gathering at the bottom looks very balenciaga.

the lady asks "what? The patterns? you can have them we were just wraping stuff with them" I promplty gasped, then blushed.
hm... guess she hasn't heard of ebay...

Anyway, I think the contrasting ribbon (?) looks very nice. A belt from the same fabric might just looks a bit dated for every day wear. Keep the ribbon!! Smiley

bet they don't have shoes this nice in the communist era Wink
... red shoes and jeans are always a perfect match in my opinion.

It could be a vintage...Paris does wear vintage occassionally. The weave pattern in the front is very similar to a Jean Desses chiffon dress I saw in some fashion reference book.
The other possibility is that it is a recent design, maybe a "homage" to Jean Desses of some sort. Wink

I second that!!

good point about having to lift the fabric off the table... haven't thought of that.

As you said, for accuracy the pattern is drawn on the fabric, and that's what I always do. But right now I'm working with some very very wide curtain fabric that I couldn't get any markings on it. Having a really bad hand-eye coordination, I'm pretty sure I'll mess it up and  that's why the idea of laser sounds kinda good. 
now that laser doesn't seem to work...I guess I'll just fold and cut for now
7  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Laser scissors for fabric?? on: May 16, 2006 03:37:27 AM
I was browsing through Daily Candy and noticed they were recommending something called the laser scissors which supposedly would allow you to cut a perfectly straight line
(link here: http://www.dailycandy.com/article.jsp?ArticleId=25898&city=4)

It sounds wonderful for sewing. So I'm wondering, has anyone tried it on fabric??

Have you gave the simplicity corset 5006 a thought?(I think someone just did a review on it ...forgot which board)
If you add the halter neck to the edge of the corset bodice, I think it'll look close enough.

I agree with the crappy winter bit, but I must say this past winter wasn't quite as bad as the previous several one... in toronto at least.

I don't think I'm actually at the level to sew a swim suit yet, but I bought some powernet out of the blue (I guess it is kind of like swimsuit material) and I have absolutely no idea how to sew it. Any tip?
Is there any online tutorial that teaches how to sew elastic fabrics??
