I am so sad that K Trimmings closed. Does anyone know if they moved their inventory to another location? I really, really regret not buying more buttons when I had the chance. WAAAH!!!

K TRIMMING CLOSED?? The horror!!!!!!!

thanks for the compliments.  the blue one was a plain light blue t from walmart.  i ironed on letters randomly, cut it into a tube with a vneck in the front, sewed straps to the top and folded over a black band of tshirt for the bottom, sewed that on.  voila!

Long time surgerer.

Warning: lots of images, but no stencils.

Please excuse the anguished faces--i feel silly smiling at the mirror.
All (except #4) used to be big tshirts.
1) Dress is made out of navy and white tshirts (top half) and white tablecloth (bottom half)

2) Made out of a blue tshirt with letters ironed on and a black stretchy banded bottom

3) Gray t shirt with pink ribbon laced through and zig zag stitching

4) used to be a long sleeved top, gray v neck band is from tshirt fabric

5) Puff sleeves, rounded neck, and a little heart patch by the neck to cover up a hole

6) blue tshirt, wide neck, reversible:

pointed neck side (kind of like an asymmetrical vneck)

9  CLOTHING / Clothing Sewalongs / Re: Promalong - Making your own Prom dress? Join the club! on: February 06, 2005 10:18:54 AM
Hey everyone.  I made my prom dress last year (I'm a college freshman now)--it took me a bit of time because i didn't really use a pattern.  I used teal sort of knit material, and bought a cheap pattern at walmart becasue i wasnt sure how to do bust darts.  it turned out really well!  I got so many compliments.  
Thats basically what it looked like, sorry i don't have better pictures.  it's not poofy, very sleek sort of goddess dressy, with a halter neck.  It has a dropped banded waist which i found very flattering.  i used interfacing on the band at the waist so the dress wouldnt stretch.  I took one of my bras and cut off a strap, sewed the other strap so it was a halter bra, and then basically sewed parts of the bra to the dress so it didnt show.  it worked really well.

The mickey skirt is adorable.  I was wondering if you could post a quickie tutorial on how you made the copacabana top on your website.  is it just 2 rectangles of fabric sewn at the sides until the armpits and the top until the neck?  Thanks so much!
