1  Advice needed: Adjusting mans jacket for my hips in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions by kitschkitty on: April 05, 2014 06:32:44 AM
So... I bought a gorgeous vintage leather mans jacket, it fits me on the arms & bust but comes no where near on the hips.

I've taken measurements and very luckily/helpfully I've worked out that I can add inserts to the side panels and need the bottom part (which is 4" wide) to measure 10" the same as across the top of the same panel.


So the advice I'm looking for is: Would you add the (triangular) panels on the seam nearest the back of the jacket?

I think that it will be the most discreet and retain the shape of the jacket, as all the detailing is on the front.
If I were to insert a triangle into the centre of the panel I don't see how the jacket panel would still lie flat?
If I add 2 thinner triangle panels, one each side of the underarm panel, it would be neat & well balanced but would be twice as much work, and I'm not sure there would be any additional advantage to the fit of the jacket.

All thoughts/advice welcomed!  Smiley

I made this for a competition, it had to use a particular brand of products so I based my design on the cute little kitty stickers (as I already had and love them)!

Hope you like it. Smiley

5  Re: How do you store your seed beads? in Beads: Discussion and Questions by kitschkitty on: February 22, 2009 07:50:40 AM
I bought myself these, and have started selling them to other beaders on my forum, as they are so great!

The lid dips in so you can stack on top of each other loosely, and the lid is attached so won't get lost and it is an airtight seal.

Each pot is 28ml and holds a lot of seed beads (around 35 - 40g of size 11's), but is also big enough for "normal" sized beads, and findings etc too.

I sold my "test tubes" that I had stored my seed beads in as I found them too small for my larger amounts of seed beads (and I don't even have that big a stash of seedies, not being a bead weaver)!

Depending where the holes are there are various different types of jewellery that you could use:

Industrial (scaffold) bar:

Helix corkscrews:

Ear cuffs attached to studs (can be done with all studs too, and with extra dangles, different no. of studs etc)

Hope this helps.

ooh only just noticed this thread! I made one back in May for a swap on another forum. It can be worn as a pendant, or hung as an ornament on the thread I made for it.

Love the different tree ideas you had - especially the night storm one - cool!  Cheesy

8  Re: earrings to fit in hollow plugs in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by kitschkitty on: August 23, 2006 04:07:43 PM
As mentioned before if you wear tunnels rather than plugs you can pass ear wires through them.

Ear wires can be any shape you like too, and dont have to be the traditional fish hook or kidney shape you are used to seeing. You can make your own any shape you want.

To Fit in best with what you are trying to achieve I would make your own ear wires in a triangular shape like this as they will hang nicely in your plugs/tunnels whether they are quite long or shorter:

You can them  hang what ever you want from your ear wires as normal.
You can use whatever metal you like, if it will be passing through a tunnel not your ear.

Some people wear a normal earring on the outside of the plug/tunnel, If you plan to do this I would reccommend you use sterling silver of niobium wire.

Also if you have metal sensitivities the best material for ear plugs are hardwoods - these don't go funky in your ears as they have a close grain, and are quite easy to find online.  Smiley

9  Can you help me find a pattern please! in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by kitschkitty on: March 09, 2006 02:14:48 PM
Hello, my mum is off work for 6 weeks as she recently had an operation, anyway she is now bored of knitting hats, and she has offered to knit a jumper/cardigan for me if I can find her a (fairly simple) pattern.

I saw this jumper a while ago but the pattern was only in regular sizes and my mum can't work out resizing stuff.

I need a plus size pattern in size 26 (UK)!

Can anyone help (from a non knitter who knows nothing about knitting patterns)!  Smiley
