1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Can this bag be saved? [PICS] on: July 15, 2010 05:09:18 PM
I have a beautiful, vintage, tapestry bag:

It is vinyl or pleather though, and the handle is ripping:

Is there anything I can do? I thought about just making new handles from some scrap leather I have, but there's really nowhere to attach the hardware so that I could put on my own handle. The handle is sort of built in to the metal of the frame, and I don't really have the tools to reattach something like that. Is there any kind of repair I can do the damaged spot?
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Making a dress for a wedding (Not a wedding dress) on: July 07, 2009 11:57:23 PM
I have been invited to attend the wedding of one of my high school friends. He also happens to be an ex boyfriend. It isn't really that awkward, we dated and broke up about a million years ago, we're the best of friends now and I adore the woman he's with. However, I am something of a believer in "rules for dresses at weddings" IE no white, no black, no red, no dresses cut down or slit up to THERE unless you have received special instructions from the couple. It is their day, and as their guest I think it is important to celebrate with them in a way that respects their wishes. I don't think the "no white, no red, no black" is set in stone, but I think it goes generally with the common sense and good taste of DO NOT OUTSHINE THE BRIDE ON THE WEDDING DAY. ESPECIALLY IF HER FIANCEE IS AN EX HAYSUS CHRISTO.

In there interest of saving money and using up some of my fabric stash, I hope to make my dress. The wedding is about a month away and I wanted to ask the following:

I am thinking of making something that looks like : http://www.butterick.com/item/B5032.htm?tab=list/dresses&page=all in pale green linen.
(View with the full skirt most likely)

Is this a) appropriate (the wedding is to be in August, indoors, in the early evening, but I understand it is not a black tie affair, the dress code seems to be semi-formal) and b) going to look ok made up in a medium (light-medium?) weight linen?

My totally uninspiring Mrs. Lovett Costume from my friend's Halloween in August Party.
I went as Edie Sedgwick this Halloween, but none of that was made, it was just assembled. All of this was made from scratch or altered thrifted clothes.

Beautiful! I can only hope my GFD comes out this nicely. Well it won't be quite as nice since it'll just be solid green linen (it is BRIGHT though :3) but seeing how wonderfully your's turned out makes me want to get going on mine!

That is classy! I love the colour too. As much as I love the bold colours one usually sees in retro repro/rockabilly influenced lines it's neat to see the silhouettes done in unusual colours. Kudos on that wool find!
