1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: Advice needed: Adjusting mans jacket for my hips on: April 05, 2014 08:16:17 AM
I have leather of the same weight to make the inserts from. Smiley
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Advice needed: Adjusting mans jacket for my hips 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

That is a gorgeous lino cut!

I'm very lucky that we have presses in my lino class.

I'm wondering if spray starch on the reverse of the fabric as well as a stiff cardboard would help keep the fabric in shape, and then, a similarly stiff board (or plank) on the lino.

Sorry if you've already said. Have you laid the lino on the fabric rather than the fabric on the lino - I think you'd be able to achieve the easiest prints that way.

 make my prints both ways up in the press, and we tried various methods with brayers & spoons, hands and anything else we could get our hands on when we were experimenting with different papers and printing mediums/inks/paints. Smiley

Wow, I thought it was going to be a sewing project, not an awesome painting project. It looks wonderful. Smiley
