The pattern is REALLY flattering on your figure. You look smashing! Are you wearing any special foundation garments or is the fabulousness pure dress?

( I love the black and white fabric.Smiley )
23  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Re: Bellydance costume makers, help please? on: June 20, 2009 02:29:36 AM
Use a padded t-shirt bra - normal bras are too flimsy to hold much.
Use doubled thread or dental floss (extra strong!).
Chop the straps off and sew them on as static (one length, not adjustable) so you can decorate them. But do this last - as the weight of the bra will affect them. Smiley
Once you're done, line the bra with felt - this will protect your breasts from the thread you attached everything with, and can be changed out if it gets sweaty (a pro told me this tip a few years ago).  Grin

I think it would look cute! Like the white cotton was an underskirt. Smiley
25  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Sewing Isn't Just for Grandmas and Mommies!! (a young crafter rant) on: June 20, 2009 02:26:31 AM
i'm 21 and buy most of my stuff from spotlight (big craft/fabric/homewares chain in aus) and find the ladies who serve to be very unhelpful, especially if you are younger. i get the distinct impression they think i'm wasting both my time and theirs.

Spotlight corporate were in the news a while back for how badly they treat their employees.
Locally, they work extremely long shifts with little breaks, and the management never put extra staff on when there are big sales and things. Spotlight employees DO NOT get staff discounts on anything (which I always thought was one of the few perks of working retail! For shame!).
I always remember this when confronted with someone who looks like they just swallowed a big batch of lemon juice (and lots of them do!)  Smiley
26  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: First Embroidery Project - Butterfly Wing on: June 05, 2009 03:34:13 AM
AMAZING first project! That must have taken you forever and a day! It looks stunning, well done you! I feel v. shabby with my tiny stabbings at the world of embroidery now.  Cheesy
27  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Turning Twenty Baby Quilt on: June 05, 2009 03:23:03 AM
I loooove it! My baby boy would love it, too!
I think bright colours are awesome for little kids - so mentally stimulating and engaging,a nd it's the only time you can wear the brightest, most clashiest things withour people looking at you funny.  Wink
28  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Australia Only (Round Whatever)? on: June 05, 2009 02:44:54 AM
Yeah, you do! I've asked for an Australian partner the last two swaps, and it was really good, postage-wise (I ended up spending $60 on postage for a package the swap before that!!:o).
Postage is the reason I bowed out of swapping, actually. Sad
And now I'm not sure how much time I'll have for making stuff...

When would people like to do this?
29  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: birthday bag with name on: June 03, 2009 07:31:11 PM
When I saw the shot with the bag open I was wondering how the letters didn't get covered over - how clever you are!
30  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Re: Yo-Yo Woes (and woeful first pattern) on: June 03, 2009 06:59:01 PM
Oh, you're very cute! I love the cartoon and those photos!

Julie doesn't look very happy to be sitting next to you, does she?  Sad
How very silly of her! Little did she realise the secret Awesome Craftster that was just inches away! Cool
