Omigosh, this looks soooo awesome!   Fabulous job! 

Would you mind sharing some more details about your skirt?  Namely, what shape were all the layers?  (gathered rectangle, circle, gathered gored pieces, etc.?)

Thank you! 
2  Texas / Texas: North Central / where to buy sequins in Dallas? on: June 25, 2010 03:40:01 PM
I'm looking for 3mm flat black sequins, and Hobby Lobby is no help.  There are bead stores all over the place, but I don't think they carry sequins.  Does anyone know of a trims store or someplace that would be likely to carry a wide variety of sequins?

I did find some embroidered trim with small flat sequins on it at Golden D'or.  If I don't find anything else, I guess I could buy some of that and rip the sequins off.

Those are sooo cute!  I am eagerly awaiting the tutorials! 

Meanwhile, throwing some love out to the all the svelte, stylish, and proportionally-petite size 0s.  It takes all types to make a beautiful world! 
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / partly-elasticized waistband instructions? on: March 30, 2010 06:58:59 PM
I have a 5-panel circle skirt & I want to add a waistband that's only elasticized on the back 2 panels (and has a zipper in the center back).  I can find directions on how to make a non-stretch waistband with a zipper, and how to make an elastic casing waistband, but I can't find directions on how to make a hybrid.

I could probably easily figure it out on my own if I just forced myself to do so, but I've got the heebie jeebies about messing it up. 

Does anyone know of a video or illustrated instructions for how to make partly-elasticized waistband with a zipper?

Never mind.  I found it. Smiley

After searching, and searching on the internet without success, I walked into JoAnn (a mere 1.25-hour drive away) with the tiny scrap I had and said, "Do you have this?" 

She pointed me to the lam aisle, where I found "pearlized sheer" in a variety of colors, in both crinkle and flat versions.  Whoop! 

Crinkle Pearlized Sheers-MANY COLORS : special occasion fabric : apparel fabric : fabric : Shop | Joann.com

It was $8.99 a yard.

I've heard that dance tights are virtually indestructible, but don't know from experience.

I would make the decoration as an applique first, then put the tights on the wearer, hold the applique where you want it, and trace around.  Then take the tights off, stretch it in a large embroidery hoop until it's the same shape as the applique, and hand-sew the applique on.

That way the tights will still fit after the decoration has taken all the stretch out of that section.

Back in the '80s, I had a Lady Lovely Locks doll, which is shown on this page:


As you can see, many of these dolls have an opalescent sheen to the fabric of their skirts. 

I've also seen this same multi-colored sheen on Wings of Isis.


It's a much more dramatic effect than most iridescent organza, which is "shot" (woven with threads of one color in one direction, and a different color in a different direction). 

What is this fabric called and where can I find it?  Thank you!

10  COOKING / Dessert / substitute for zucchini in zucchini cake? on: September 22, 2009 09:21:29 AM
I made a chocolate zucchini cake from King Arthur Flour Whole Grain Baking.  It had a fabulous texture and taste, but a faint odor of zucchini, which I found disturbing.  So, I want to substitute a more innocuous vegetable.

I've gotten suggestions for carrot, sweet potato, various squashes, and pumpkin.  Which one would make the most zucchini-like substitute?
