1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / A Kitty Shirt for me! Now with added cowboy shirt on: August 08, 2008 03:28:27 PM

This is a shirt for me with a kitty theme.  All black & white fabrics.  The black & white dot on the sides is actually the back -- kept curling up when I took the pics.  And I used deep red buttons as I thought it needed a punch of color.

Thanks for looking!  Smiley

2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Skirt and shirt recons on: July 04, 2008 05:04:27 PM
I had purchased a skirt for another project -- cute skirt but a zillion sizes too small (ok I exaggerate a million sizes).  I saw something similar on eBay and the gerbils in my brain started to run around the wheel.  So I took the skirt and a piece of fabric I had ordered for a different project and made a me size skirt. 


After Front:

After Back:

I cut the skirt up the sides and cut the hem off.  I cut 2 wedge pieces for the sides and sewed in a casing then attatched that to the original skirt.  Hemmed it and added trim -- ta da!  Cheesy

Here is a shirt I had gotten on sale cheap -- if it fits the bust it never ever fits the hips so I cut it off about waist level and added a skirt and a pocket.

Gratuitous kitty pic -- he was hunting for supplies for me.  Smiley
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Sew What Skirts -- question on: June 10, 2008 07:21:51 AM
I read in the description of the book that you draft your own patterns.  Has anyone done this and should they adapt to the plus size figure? 

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Knit waist skirt questions???? on: June 04, 2008 08:30:06 AM
I am curious about the skirts with the stretch knit/ribbing waist.  I am a very hippy plus sized person and was wondering if anyone had made these and they worked.  Or if the knit/ribbing would end up stretched out fo shape LOL.  Any experiecne -- ideas?

Connie Crawford Butterick 5215 T-shirt pattern

I really cannot get a good pic of this t-shirt to post.  But this is a good pattern.  I sewed version B with modifications.  I modified for my "over endowed" hips and widened and lengthened the sleeve.  I also lowered the neckline just a bit.  With one try the shirt fits pretty good.  If you are a hippy person this is a good pattern to try. 

HTH someone  Smiley

9  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Skirts for my fiance's niece on: March 22, 2008 12:24:54 PM
 The poor kiddo has had an emotional rollercoaster of a week so I thought I would make some skirts to give to her for Easter.  They are all from a Butterick pattern.

Thanks for looking  Smiley
10  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Know of any places near Dayton OH to.... on: March 17, 2008 06:15:11 PM
Donate either little preemie quilts or blankies for kitties?  I found a site with some simple 18" preemie quilts but it is states away.  And not sure about the shelters in that area - the one in Eaton did not have a web site listed.  Long story short -- moving -- possible unemployment -- trying to destash & do good at the same time.  If any one has any ideas pleace let me know.  I will be living west of Dayton.
