1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: TWO SKIRT PATTERNS WANTED~ on: June 07, 2006 10:22:19 AM
I have to add that the 2nd skirt is beyond cute! I love the 50's look. I also believe it is pleated which, I think, is much more flattering than gathering. IMO pleating is easier because you have more control of the fabric but is a bit more time consuming if your winging the pleats. Your going to have to make an underskirt if you want it to poof out nice like that also.

Maybe I'm just lazy but...what about going to a thrift store and remaking an existing wedge? I like the cork idea... do you just get some at the hardware store? Seems like it would be nice and springy (as in bouncy). It would be pretty easy to cut, especially if you have a bandsaw!
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: how would i make these shirts? (pic ref) on: June 07, 2006 10:05:04 AM
Well since no one has responded...

Do a search for "bib shirt". I saw a few when I search but most of them were t-shirt fabric. Since it seems to be a popular style, check online at Simplicity or McCalls. I think I have seen a pattern for a button up shirt like that.

If you want to wing it you could try to cut a bib shape out of a button up shirt you own and insert a coordinating fabric. You could also add piping detail...lace...make a ruffle and sew it in the seam...anything you want. It looks like the pleated around the bib so you might want to use a shirt thats a bit big so you can make darts/gathers. The sleeves look like puffed sleeve and I'm sure there is a tut on here for that.

If I were you I'd buy a pattern though...LOL...I love patterns!

I'd love to make summer clothes for myself...but I just got a giant pile of fabric for DD's summer clothes so I can't afford any more fabric. I have some fabric for myself that I bought here and there so I'm trying to make myself something for every 3-4 pieces I make her. It takes forever to make something because my 6 month old is clingy and hasn't quite figured out his nap schedule yet.

I really need to get into excercising. It's just frustrating because I've never had to. I've always been naturally thin and never gained weight...until the kids. I gained 55lbs with my first (still don't know how that happened. Seriously, I didn't eat very differently than I did before  pregnancy, she seemed to really like cereal though.) but that taught me to be more careful and I only gained 30 with my son. Now I have the same 10-15 lbs hanging on me that I had before my 2nd.

I'm done with my whine now...

Good luck with your summer clothes! If you ever get done with your suit post a picture, I'd like to see how a homemade suit turns out.

LOL!!! That was just too funny! Yeah...I don't think I would want to see my mom in a 2 piece either...not that she would even think of wearing one!

I'm only 26...well 27 in July...so my "mommy body" consists of 10-15 extra pounds that are spead out all over (except my boobs where I want it, those just deflated) and a bit of a rounded tummy. I really need to do sit-ups more often than the once a week when I feel guilty...ok I lie...once every other week.  Roll Eyes Anyway, thanks again for the link, if I see nice swimsuit fabric I might just try and make one.

Nope, Not since the last message on April 26th... This thread is on my watch list. I hope we get something soon. Most of the time all I have to craft is kids stuff!!!

Oh, this is an awsome link! I just have to figure out if any of these suits would look good on a "mommy body"  Huh LOL! It looks like the gathering would be good for covering a little mommy tummy but would the extra gathering make everything look bigger? I'm only looking at the 2 piece suits of course!

My mommy made me one of those when I was little...oh the memories...Sniff... Cry I have no idea what happened to it. It was no where near as elaborate as your though. It didn't have all the ruffles, I think it had one ruffle on the bottom and that was it. I had forgotten all about it! Now I'm going to have to try and find it for my daughter.
