1  I made another outfit in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects by missteri on: September 02, 2007 09:45:02 PM
I am trying to free up some space on my camera so here are a few of me hanging out at the beach in an outfit I made. I know they don't really show the details much but you get the idea.

2  I made an outfit (lot's o pics) in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects by missteri on: April 13, 2007 05:07:29 PM
This is the outfit I made and I wore to work today. The shirt is a recon from two basic t-shirts and the skirt is from scratch.

I name the clothes that I make and this shirt is "Emo Poetry" because when my husband saw it he was like "I like your emo shirt."

So here is my emo face:

This is my first fly zipper thingy I am so proud.

here is my silly face Tongue

3  Look what I got! in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by missteri on: March 30, 2007 10:44:54 PM
I am so excited one of my coworkers gave me BAGS of fabric. Its like over 20 different kinds of fashion fabric all well over 2 yards of each. It took me forever to prewash and fold it all and she gave me 4 books. Now I just have to figure out where to put it and what to make.

Okay I HAVE to add my two cents on this thread by saying that before anyone goes off and cut up a skirt or a skirt pattern let me give a brief explanation of what they physically are. Culottes and gauchos are actually a A-line skirt with a crotch extensions. Gauchos are designed to end just below the knee whereas culotte can be any length. They are not just a skirt cut up the center.

6  Fabric problems in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by missteri on: April 24, 2006 12:17:01 AM
Okay, so I decided to make this tunic with this gauze fabric and I got everything together the basic construction was no problem after I got the pattern to fit right. The next step is to put the collar in, I was supposed to us lightweight fusible interfacing but its something that I never used before and because of the type of fabric I used I decided to skip that part. The fabric stretches out of shape very easily so I didn't want to iron it or do anything else that would make my final result come out funky(bad funky not good funky). I got the collar facing sewn in and turned on the right side now I have to sew it down but it keeps moving and stretching out and now I'm stuck. Maybe I should've used that interfacing. Sad  Any suggestions on how to make it stay still so I can sew it down and do my topstitching? Heres a pic of what the final result is supposed to look like. It just had rows of topstiching around the collar and cuffs i'm gonna skip the cuffs though.

7  Re: pattern adjustment help in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by missteri on: April 18, 2006 12:17:55 AM
The one I have decided to work with is a basic tunic pattern and I figured that if I can get this one to fit right I can alter it into whatever I want like make it a v-neck or whatever.

the next one I  wanted is a surplice top. I have one more that is a lot like this top but it doesn't crossover in the front it has a seam down the middle. I am assuming that the adjustment on these tops would be very similar?

All the tops have a regular back no darts or anything like that.

8  help with first knit project in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by missteri on: March 29, 2006 02:32:43 PM
I have a basic rectangle that measures 54"x18" I had every intention of making it into a shrug but once I got the sides seamed up I hated it and now I don't know what to do with it. I was going to put like a collar thing on it but with all the colors I don't know what color to make it. The next problem is that it rolls and now I know I probably should have done some seed stitches or ribbing to avoid that but I thought it would look funny. So I'm stuck with this piece of useless fabric ANY suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

The image that I have in my head loos something like this without the belt and I dont think it would look stupid at all  i think it would very cute and you could do one of those tie front shrugs over it. I think I just might steal that idea. (thanks for the inspiration) Grin

10  Re: Ideal material to put pattern pieces on? in Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions by missteri on: February 22, 2006 05:59:05 AM
I used tissue paper in the past but the problem with it is that it tears easily and if you need a bigger piece you have to tape two sheets together but its fairly inexpensive. A cheaper solution is news paper with will hold up better but still needs to be taped together. Now I use tracing paper that comes in rolls alot easier to use and pretty sturdy. Its a little more expensive but if you do alot pattern altering (as I do.) then its more than worth it. You find tracing paper at an art supply store.
