Oh I loved the painting! With the blue walls it makes it look as though you're looking out a window at a fantasy scenery. Where did you get it?

You can heat up refrigerated rice easily. Just put a bit of water on it and cover then nuke. The water keeps the rice moist so it's not dry. It works pretty well for me. Also if you rice is a hard as a brick, ie you crammed it into a too small container, just use a fork to loosen it up a little before nuking.

The dress looks fantastic. However, I had a question about the bust. In the first two photos the it looks like the left panel is on the top, but the third photo shows the right bust panel on top. Did you design the dress in a special way?

Wow. That's is absublutely gorgeous. Gotta admire the amount of time it took to string the beads. I thought the shiny bits were just sparkly yarn until I saw the last picture.

thank you to everyone for the kind comments and suggestions. my camera has been busted so i haven't been able to upload a pic of the finished suit. i ended up tying it at my back halter style sans the neck wrap and i added a horizontal strap at the back for support.

tiggyn: i used a stretchy fabric, however because it wasn't treated to withstand chlorine, it developed a greenish tint by the end of the semester. otherwise though it worked out really well. it lasted the entire semester ( i used it twice every week for about an hour and a half). so for the effort and time i put in (about 2 hours and $1/yard fabric from walmart)  it was worth it. if you want your suit to last longer i'd recommend you use a treated fabric. you can find them at various places. here's one: http://www.denverfabrics.com/pages/static/swimwear/swimwear.htm.  just search for "swimwear fabric" or some such thing like that.

That's beautiful!  Normally I -eck- flowery dresses, b/c they're pukingly girly, but yours is womanly feminine. Smiley

Wow! Thanks for the wonderful comments. It actually makes me feel more confident about the whole onepiece business.

I found the fabric in the $1 section of Wal-Mart. Here's what I found from testing it out in water: It's stretchy (probably lycra/cotton/spandex) b/c it retains its shape pretty well and it also dried off really quick. I didn't use a pattern but I did use an old tank that fit me snugly.

then I laid boy shorts (I like the cut at the thighs) on top at the height I wanted the bottom parts to start
and traced around the outline. Cut then sew.

I needed some pants to wear other than jeans, however I'm a bit leery of zippers so their not installed yet. It's currently being held up by my shrek pin.


and the part I'm most proud of: the pockets. They actually work!!
