My husband wants to name our future son Homer, and with a name like that he would certifiably need this hat.  And then I will cry.

Ahhh it is so beautiful!!!  I have been craving a soft wrap.  This would also be a quick gift for someone who has requested something lacy.

That fabric is so great.  I bet you could get $50 each , easy.  And I second the comment about cafes and etc, tell him to try it!

246  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Can someone help with this dress? on: November 27, 2005 01:55:05 PM
Circle skirts are easy to do yourself!  Just figure out how long you want it to be.  That becomes the radius of your circle.  Use a piece of string that is about the same length and tie one end to a chalk pencil and one end to a pushpin.  Push the pin into the center of your fabric and the floor.  Make a circle on the fabric with the chalk.  Then figure out your waist meaurement and calculate the radius of that cirlce, and make a circle in the center and cut it out.  You can use this to make a one piece skirt, or make a front and back or etc. to vary the fullness of the skirt.

A box pleat is what you would find on a school-girl style skirt.  You could make a slit in the fabric and sew a panel to each cut edge.  Iron the seam allowances flat, folded behind the original fabric.  Then line up the sewn edges and press again, centering the panel equally behind the opening.  Re-sew to waistband, which may require some fudging because of the fabric used in the new seam.  Also, I meant that when you cut out new fabric, you will have to match up the plaid on the individual pattern pieces as you cut!  It is not too hard, just time consuming and you need a little more fabric than you would otherwise.  Hope this helps!  It might be easier to buy a pattern with pleats to help you visualise it.

I think that you would probably have to cut the skirt and add fabric to create a box pleat, because pleats would make the skirt too small!  Keep in mind that sewing a new skirt would require matching the plaid.

Beautiful and inspired cardi!!!  And I love the skinny-scarf thing (stash busting I will go!)

I have the same problem!!! I thought it was just my poor math skills since I used a different guage.   I plan to pick up stitches all around the neck and knit 2x2 ribbing like you usually see on a vest.  Such a dissapointment, I know!
