501  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / HELP!--first skirt on: April 18, 2006 03:16:42 PM
i'm trying to make this tiered simplicity skirt, the really long one

ooh, sorry so blurry. hurts my eyes.

anyway, even though i compared it with a skirt i have, the top layer is going to have to be worn way higher on the waist than i am comfortable with. it's called a yoke, and the only difference i can see between it and the rest of the layers is it is not gathered. and of course it will eventually contain the elastic. can i just leave that layer out and start at 2? and if i do that, should i gather 2 or no? i have included pictures of the instruction page. thanks for any help!!

thanks everyone!! theres another way to imitate this, geekette. there is this transfer paper you candraw on with crayons or markers and then just iron on. i havent tried drawing on it personally, but i have printed on it from the compuer and used it that way.

the pants are really cute..they look comfy being a bit big. i'd try to make some, but i already have way too many pants!

and i loooove the dress! how did you do it? can you explain to me? i'd love to make one. is it made out of just tshirts? it's awesome, regardless.

i use the art wear brand..you can find it at walmart and michaels craft stores. i've only used the kind you can print onto and then iron-on but i've had great experience with it. its about 7 bucks for 3 sheets and reusable wax-type paper.

this is the very first thing i've ever sewn (other than pillows made entirely of tissue when i was young and wanted to be like my mommy).

i realized after it was complete that it was a little big so i went back and tried to fix it. but i made it a little small around the butt, and as you can see it bunches up in some areas. plus, it makes my boobs look a little funny. anyway, i like it, and i'm very pleased as it is the first thing i've made. i might send it to a friend who's less shapely. it might work better with her figure.

so i saw this shirt in a magazine a wanted it so badly but i did not want to pay the asking price.

so my friend and i decided to make one. i used felt to cut out the shapes and then she sewed it on with a zigzag stitch.

i had the fire coming out of the end too, but it was right at the band to my pants and it folded weird. and i like mine better!!
