1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Forum/group/FB group/blog for historical seamstresses? on: February 10, 2014 11:30:58 AM
Well, there is this place, but is there any other places for discussing ideas, show ongoing and finished projects, share inspiration and do social networking?
I can find different sites and forum about specific periods, but I miss a group, that is general on subjects and periods.

And yes, there is this place, as I wrote, I just miss something like...I don't know, something more forum like.

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / 7 dress and skirt refashions on: September 13, 2013 02:01:03 AM


Before: Tube dress. Too long and with an insanelig tight elastic above the chest.

After: Added straps from a bra, shortened the dress and used the fabric for "infinity ties".

This dress had become too tight around the chest, so I added a corset closure to add a few centimeters.







I added linin to give the skirt a bit of poof:


After. Took it in and shortened it:

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Travel leaf tea and tea strainer holder on: August 05, 2011 03:59:40 AM
I have meant to make such one for at long time, but I just can't figure out how. It should be a small holder that I can put in my hand bag

It must accomodate:
- smallish paperbag(s) with tea by weight, not tea bags
- tea strainer (egg shaped with a handle)

The tea strainer takes some time to dry, so probably sometimes have to put it into the holder when damp. So the solution will have to include a closed, waterproof pouch for it (I have the waterproof stuff already, a scrap of PUL).

Any new ideas? I have seen a few good pouches/travel bags for tea on etsy, but they are all meant for tea bags. I'm sure I could use them with small paperbags with tea, but I still need a space for the tea strainer.

By the way, what about som of that "strapless bra -tape" at the top of the tube on the inside, to prevent the top from falling down and become lumpy in the back?

Of you could fit the top with bra-hooks and use transparent straps?

Og make the "boob tube" a bit wider and then smock it, so it will fit tighter? (That way you could also make an Infinity Shirt out of non-stretchy material).

Or make something so you can tie/fix/secure the top to the bra underneath? (I know that I will definitely wear a bra under a top like this, my front assets have completely forgotten what perky means....)

I found this tute: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=112287.0

And now I think, that I get it: A short tube around yours boobs, a longer tuber around your lower torso, sewn together.
And with the straps sewn between the two tubes in the front (at a place so they cover your boobs, when you turn them upwards to use them as straps)?

So basically you do like in the tute in the link, but have sewn the two tubes together? I like it! Much easier and a better fit I bet.

I have some dark brown jersey somewhere.....I think I have just enough time to make an Inifinity Shirt in time for going on holiday tomorrow. Smiley  Smiley

It looks great!
I must be really stupid (or not good enough at English), because I just can't figure out, how it is constructed. Could I persuade you to show a picture of the top without the beautiful you in it, so I can see the construction?

Colour is really important, they affect your mood and how you feel. Get rid of that pink you don't like and get one that makes you happy, motivated and like wanting to be in that room, would be my suggestion.

Thats awsome. Very great shape of the dress. And hilarious with the pink/flowery/tulle together with the horror theme, it must be a very strange movie Grin. I'm still giggling, have to show this to the BF.
