1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Ironing/Steaming Flowers on Wedding dress - HELP...10 MORE DAYS on: May 17, 2006 07:43:26 AM
Help me please.

On the bodice of my wedding dress I have flowers and their edges are curling over. I tried to steam them and it was so hard, and I burned my fingers over and over again. I bought some starch spray and thought about using my flat iron on a low setting with the starch to straighten them out and keep them that way.

What do you think? I don't know what material they are. They are pretty see thru, and do have some sequins in the middle of them. All the edges are curling and it doesn't look that great to me.

I'm getting married in 10 days, so any advice would be appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / my xmas tree dessert on: January 02, 2006 10:21:51 PM
I got the idea from FamilyFun magazine, Dec's issue. Everyone loved it, except wouldn't eat it because they didn't want to mess it up, so I ended up leaving half of it at my ma's house xmas eve and taking the top half home for my kids to eat.

hi, this is my first project. my ma got me to join this site, i got inspired today after looking at soooo many awesome clothes you people have made!!! you guys are so talented!!! so here goes.... i took an old green striped summer dress and cut it up to be a skirt by adding a lacey hem and a black ribbon bow and for the shirt - it was a blue/black cut up shirt, along with a tan/black skirt and of course more of the green striped summer dress with another black ribbon sewed on the side and 2 green ribbons on front. the shirt fit my 8 year old. she insisted on wearing the skirt as well - although the skirt IS in fact for me. thanks for looking:
