1  Re: On off-the-shoulder shirts. in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by itsamutiny on: July 22, 2006 07:44:07 AM
i think you'd just take a shirt that fits you, and then cut on the red line:

then you'd have to put bias tape or something around the top edge. and although the line isn't straight, when you have your arms down, it will be.

2  Re: Simplicity 5006- Corset, petticoat in Sewing Pattern Reviews by itsamutiny on: July 06, 2006 11:24:25 PM
I made the corset part for prom! I used white and black satin, and I made satin bias tape to go around the edges. I also bought black cotton duck and sewed the boning into that, so there aren't lines of stitching on the satin part. Actually, the only pattern-following I did was for cutting out the pieces, and sewing them together. The rest of it I sort of winged it haha.

I only have one picture of it, sadly. I really ought to put it back on and get better pictures, especially because it's not as tight as it should be in the picture.

I got a waist reduction of 2", if I recall correctly, and there was about an inch gap in the back. The fit was pretty good, except I had to take in a bit around the bottom (I have small hips), and I had to take it in on the side bust seams, because I'm a really uncommon size.

I'm actually hoping to remake this in a different fabric, maybe something cute and 50s looking, with a halter strap, and possibly another one that will be all smooth and whatnot that I can wear under clothes because being skinny > being able to take huge breaths.
