31  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: My XVIIIe Corset on: March 16, 2009 09:58:47 AM
Yes, all the eyelets were done by hand.

First, I punched a hole with a big sewing needle, then with a small knitting needle (size 3) and finally with a big knitting needle. I guess there is a special tool that does all that stuff but I dont have any and didnt want to buy one.
The sewing part is similar as a circular button hole (it maybe not historical accurate but it worked fine).

Quite easy. But also time consuming  Shocked

Here is a blue Qiapao,
It was made from a japanese pattern book "elegant china".
I did even the "buttons" !

Thanks for looking Smiley

Here is a corset I made, following a free pattern, found here : http://www.marquise.de/en/1700/howto/frauen/18corset.shtml
It is in cotton (an old table cloth), has 3 layers, ribbon borders and handmade eyelets.
This project was a lot of rework since the pattern ended up too big (during different phases of the project... even cotton tends to strech when stressed !).

This is the first step of a XVIII costume project Wink

After knitting an authentic Hew (that I enjoyed), I made a Hew variation ! This one has crocheted collar and ties, because it just makes more sense to me Wink

Sorry for the not so great pictures. Today, I lack light and later I'll lack time... This Hew variation is a christmas gift. Thank you canarysanctuary for giving me christmas gift ideas !

Have a nice sunday Smiley

37  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Re: A rabbit for mateo on: June 25, 2008 12:40:01 PM
It's about 15 cm tall. I guess most people here use inches. So let's say 6 inches  Wink
38  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / A rabbit for mateo on: June 25, 2008 11:44:27 AM
I made a rabbit for a new-born. It's made from scraps that gave me an african clothing shop.

I got my inspiration for this just here : https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=191556.0

Thanks for looking  Wink
39  EUROPE / FRANCE / Re: Paris for the younger crafty set? on: April 07, 2008 11:07:08 AM
I would recommend :

- Rougié et plé, 13 Bd des filles du calvaire, Métro : Filles du Calvaire. A huge variety of different craft supplies such as beads, papers etc...

- Le marché st pierre, 2 rue Charles Nodier. The whole area is dedicated to fabrics stores. I like the atmosphere.

- Junku, 18 rue des Pyramides, Métro : Pyramides. A japanese bookstore with a lot of sewing / knitting / crochet selection. If you are in the area, go also at bouchara, a big fabric store.

- La droguerie, 09 rue du Jour, Métro : Halles. It's a yarn store (very chic and very expensive). If you are in the area, go also in wolf, rue de la grande truanderie (for all things related to vampires ^^) and in the St Denis street, it has a lot of second hand clothing.

- Entrée des fournisseur 8, rue des francs bourgeois (for buttons, beads etc...). But don't go too early in the morning. This place has a lot of chic stores that don't open before 11am !
40  EUROPE / FRANCE / Re: Could I have some help with translation please? :) on: April 05, 2008 12:58:15 AM
First of all, I'll say that french is my mother tongue. You're pretty close to a good translation. But "de anglais" is not correct.

You could say : "J'espère que je pourrai vous apprendre un peu d'anglais, et que vous pourrez m'apprendre un peu de français". (it adds the notion of "a little bit")

or : "J'espère que je pourrai vous apprendre l'anglais, et que vous pourrez m'apprendre le français" (it adds the notion of learning everything about the languages)

I can't find a way to express "some". Hope you'll have a good experience in that french school !
