1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Craft Hipster on: September 15, 2006 08:36:59 AM
Recently I tried making a long skirt for DD out of two old pairs of hipster jeans (still in the process of getting it to fit right) and had the top of one pair left...

didn't want to make  a bag or cushion cover and was really stuck for ideas when suddenly I thought of the craft hipster
Very easy to make and after unpicking the fly and adding a new hem I reused the back pockets and made two large pockets from complementary fabric and attached them to the front of the new pockets which I then sewed to the "back" (now the front) of the jeans....it does up so easily with the original button http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i212/yllas8/crafthipsterback-1.jpg
and fits perfectly as they did before. Now I use it as a "tool belt" but for crafting, and the pockets are suitable for all those fiddly embellishments and are handy when you're in the middle of a creation and the door bell rings (just pop the item in your pocket)

Please let me know what you think...thanks Smiley

3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Pear shaped gals on: July 12, 2006 02:46:10 AM
Just wondered how many of us curvy gals are pear shaped...and what styles you find suit you best and what you've made thats a great fit etc.

my latest make is 2 pairs of trousers Simplicity 4503 http://simplicity.com/dv1_v4.cfm?design=4503
I foudn the waist rather large so had to take it in...other than that it was great...the side zip is a fav as it reduces extra bulges/fabric at the front of stomache.

would like to make the long jacket, but not sure as so often patterns don't allow for pear shapes and the shoulders are often too big.

I look forward to seeing/reading about your favs and makes Smiley
