1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Dress Form on: April 10, 2007 12:56:31 PM
Can any of ya'll recommend a good dress form.  I've checked the thread on Pattern Review, and I'm even more overwhelmed than I was before.  The only conclusion I've come to thus far, is to buy a smaller form and size her up, but could use some opinions on the various forms available for sell.

2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / What Materials Do I need to Trace on: February 17, 2007 08:19:01 AM
Hi All,

I have a bra pattern that I want to make, but I know I'm going to need a lot of mods.  So I thought I would trace the pattern before cutting it.  Only thing is, I'm not sure how to go about doing that.  So, what exactly do I need to trace?

I have pattern paper, and a tracing wheel.  Surely that can't be it.  Does anyone care to enlighten me?

Ok I can't wait any longer for someone with more to offer to start this thread.  I humbly present you 1 lone skein, that I spun, and then dyed this week.


4 ozs Henry Attic Superwash Merino.  Sport Weigthish, about 180 y.  Used Wiltons, and a little bit of acid dyes for this.  Calling my 1st colorway Under The Kitchen Sink, because I grabbed dyes, and just called it a day.  No real inspiration at all.  Surprised by the outcome, but will always love it, as this is my 1st spin to knit, and dyed yarn.

Now, what should I knit with it?

Ok, whose next?

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Flame Retardent on: September 05, 2006 11:21:16 AM
Hi Everyone!

I want to make my 4yo some pj's and I need to use Flame retardent material.  So far my search for fabric that has been treated as such has turned up useless.  Is there something I can use to treat the fabric?  Or, does anyone know of any online etailers that sell flame retardent fabric?

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Brown Paper Cd's on: August 28, 2006 12:33:01 PM
Has anyone purchased any of the cd's available from Brown Paper Patterns?  If so what were your likes/dislikes?  Would you recommend them?  I was interested in the Plus Size and the Denim cd.

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / I have an idea and I need help on: August 10, 2006 09:02:58 AM
Hi All,

I'm a beginner sewer, but I seen a lady on the bus yesterday with a dress that was to die for, especially considering she was a big girl like myself.  Anyway, I want to make a skirt that mimics her dress.  The dress resembled the infinity dress.  The skirt had 3 front & back panels, and 2 side panels, 1 on each side.  It was so elegant, and didn't make her look any bigger than she was.  How would I go about mimic'ing something like that?  Do I measure my waist or hips, and then divide that measurement by 8?  Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / First Sewing Pattern Project - A few ?'s on: July 29, 2006 11:32:35 AM
Hi All,

After sewing a few bags from the wonderful tutorials posted here on craftster, I think it's time I try my hand at a pattern.  I chose Simplicity 4157 View A.  Before I cut pattern I have a few ?'s:

Those triangles on pattern, am I spose to cut those on pattern and or/fabric?

What does with or without nap mean?

I think it I get those 2 questions answered I can be on my way, but there are no guuarantees I won't be back hounding my fellow crafsters.  Of course, I'll post pictures of my completed fo.

Thanks In Advance
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / I Made A Sha Sha Dream Bag on: July 08, 2006 07:35:32 AM
Last week at work, I was bored, so I had the misfortune on clicking on the thread that contained all the awesome tutorials. Man oh man why did I do that.  The next day I had work to do, and I was still busily clicking around Craftster instead of working.  Anyway, here's my completed project.  This is my 3rd sewing project, following a tutorial.  The 1st 2 thingies I made I just sorta winged.  I really enjoyed this bag, and see a dozen more in my future.
  I totally forgot to take a picture of the lining, but it is plain blue solid cotton fabric. 

Thanks for looking

Is this any good for a beginner spinner?  Any comments on using this particular roving?

10  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Bobbin Help & Other Sewing Machine Questions on: June 06, 2006 10:51:56 AM
So I purchased a used Singer 6212C from someone on Craigslist this weekend.  Naturally it didn't come with a manual or a bobbin.  How can I go about buying one.  This model isn't even listed on Singer's site, yet 6212 is listed.  Should I assume this is the same model as far as manual is concerned.

For the bobbin, should I just bring the bobbin case with me, and see which bobbin fits in it, and hope to buy locally?

How does one go about finding a dealer or someone to repair?  It's a dang shame I'm in the heart of NYC garment district, yet I feel so overwhelmed when it comes to this.  I don't even know where to shop for patterns.
