1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Easy Wrap Top on: June 02, 2014 08:53:24 AM
Inspired by the tutorial here: http://freshlygiven.com/blog/tutorial-grandmas-skirt-to-blouse/

I admit to completely disregarding the instructions on this one. Still, it was a really easy project. I finished this in just a couple hours. I modified the pattern to suit my taste - I'm not really one to have my belly exposed. I think I'll make it again with a longer back.

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Lace Curtains are Boring on: July 11, 2013 01:13:11 PM

I dug out the old lace curtains I have been hoarding, and finally made something. No pattern. I draped across my body and just... winged it. As you can see, the fit could use some work, but as it was entirely hand-sewn in about a day, I'm pretty pleased. I wore it out the day I finished it. How could I resist?
3  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Community Crafting Shop (Advice/Suggestions?) on: October 10, 2006 04:27:52 PM
So, I've thought of this, seen it mentioned by other Craftsters, and then had the idea voiced by my own mother. All completely independantly. Now I'm wondering what it would actually take to set something like this up.

I want a craft shop. Badly. I want to sell supplies. I want to display the work of local artists. And, more than anything, I want to create a place where people can come together, take classes, and share ideas. I want a space that people can consider their own personal craft room. I want people to come in and be comfortable bringing in their friends, children, parents, just to visit.

I'm not sure what the best strategy would be. Perhaps start off with supplies, books, and classes on a few popular crafts, and then add as people show interest? What crafts would you enjoy doing in a public environment?

I'm also thinking of a vaguely tea-shop, cozy decorating theme. Do you think this would feel to formal for people to be comfortable?

Help me! I want this SO badly!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Petticoat Help/Tips? on: January 20, 2006 10:53:37 AM
I'm making a 50s style dress for my mother. (She has a yearly date with her husband to some sort of 50s party thing... Not really clear on the details, but I guess it doesn't matter.)

The dress, I have no problem with. BUT I would like to make a petticoat as well so that the skirt poofs out in that classic 50s sillouette, and I haven't the slightest clue. Would you just make a regular skirt, with lots of ruffles or pleating or whatever? Any ideas would be helpful!
