1  Homecoming Help. in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by The_Bus on: September 26, 2007 12:30:30 PM
Hey everyone!

Alright, so homecoming is Saturday night. And, I would like to make my dress. It's really late notice. And I have a backup, just is case.

But, I love this dress-

Any ideas for a pattern? It looks pretty simple.

What kind of fabric would you suggest?

Do you think it can be done in 3 days?

How is the bow so perky?

I just bought this pattern.

I've decided I am going to modify it a bit though.

Shorten the skirt part. And lengthen the bottom flowy part. Plus put in a slit. And of course. The corset back. And some straps, maybe.

Ah... Patterns are so complicated though...

It's intimidating.

So, these are just some random drawings I threw together for my boyfriend of what I wanted, if they help at all.

Maybe I will color code them...

And, I do want boning... BUT... I don't want a functional corset, nor do I want a super tight dress either.

So, I found a pattern that is fairly similar to what I am looking for.


But, I was wondering still, about making the back tie. I haven't really worked with patterns much, so would this be easy to change?

Any other tips are greatly appreciated!

Okay, so I googled Mry Sunshine and I got a few pictures.

And, because I have no idea who she is, which one are you looking for. Or is it an in between?

Alright, so I have created my own prom dress look, and I have sort of put together a picture of what I *hope* it looks like.

Okay. So, what I am going for is the dress on the right, exept with boning added and the corset back added. Plus no lace and different colors. Possibly beaded.

1. I could use some help finding a pattern, or making one?

2. Fabric recomendations, I sort of want to bead it.

3. Beading of corsets or beading in general advice.

4. Anything helpful?

I was wondering if anyone could help me with my corseted dress. This thread is very long, so I couldn't really find anything.

But, I do have a few questions-

1. Is it more difficult to make a corset dress, than just a corset and a skirt. I can only find patterns were they are separate and I kind of want it to be a one piece.

This is sort of the style I am going for, except my dress is going to be a plain gold fabric on top and a blue fabric underneath for the skirt. The top is going to be all gold, hopefully beaded, with blue stitching, I also like the bra-area on this top w/o the lace. 


I really love this corset back, as apposed to one going straight down the back. Would this make things ubberly more complicated?

3. I've see some dresses that have boning that curves, and has more of an intricate design to it, is this an extremely hard process?

4. Can silky fabrics hold up as a corset. I found a fabric in the colors I want, it's a silky fabric, but, it looks like it's dimpled or something (I need to look the name up when I go to the store, but you may know what I mean) I just don't know if a corset can take this, or would you add a lining and stuff anyway?

5. I think this is the last. Beading a corset. Is it possible? Were is a good place to buy a larger gem piece (kind of the middle piece of the beadwork.)

9  Venetian Prom in Party Planning by The_Bus on: April 03, 2007 11:25:07 AM
Hello, I know there is another board on here about proms, but I need specific help.

Our prom theme is Venetian.

This is our back drop. Although we may be painting the black to a brown, because it seems a bit harsh.

What I need help with is the table settings, other decor, invitations, considering we only have a backdrop.

Also our budget isn't crazy high, we gave the school our prom idea and 21 fundraising ideas, in september. They choose to okay it less than 8 weeks before prom.

Thanks for the help!

10  Painting Plastic in Discussion and Questions by The_Bus on: January 31, 2006 04:41:35 PM
I have a quick question, is it possible to paint a bag like so without the paint coming off, if so with what kind of paint?
