if your serger has is it, a flatlock would work as well.

I will agree with the other two up to the point of, it is indeed a complicated dress. However I will NOT say have someone else do it for you. If you are concered about certain parts I'd recommend going and looking at patterns. I know some of the brands can help you find similar bodice types, as for the skirt and the petticoat, those are pretty striaght forward. Go for it and send me a message if you want any personal help.

What I normally do is just go and by a pattern for a dress that is similar and use the sleeve from it. If it doesn't fit then I add or subtract when needed.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Help! I need a pattern for this dress on: May 07, 2008 07:22:17 PM
I've seen something similar to the second one in the simplicity pattern books.
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: How do you make ties? on: May 07, 2008 07:20:33 PM
Well I just finished two yesterday and I used McCall 2447 for it. It was super easy (though the instructions were a bit unclear).
7  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Let's see your sewing machine!! on: May 07, 2008 07:17:08 PM
Okay so I don't have a picture of my machine so I just went onto the website and grabbed one. I have a Husquvarna Viking platinum 775.


Okay so in the time of posting I have gotten one new machine and so did my sis. So here they are and once again I have not taken pics so they are direct from the website.

This is my serger the huskylock 905!


and this is my sisters


It is a huskystar C20. I'm really impressed with my sister, she hated sewing until I started to do it and now she goes flying away with pillowcases!

Also if it is just buzzing or wheesing as if trying to work, see if the bobbin winder is engaged. I see all the time at work.
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Dress Forms!! Hotchacha cha on: May 07, 2008 06:58:39 PM
I use the dressforms here at my school. I love them (though the brand name eludes me) they are easily pinable, easy to add padding, and have wheels! Sorry I'm just excited about being able to move around the forms. Also they are incredibly durable. I dropped one the other day, granted I caught it before it hit the ground, but it was sturdy enough to survive the impact of my leg and whatever else it hit on the way down.

I also work at JoAnn fabrics and I've used the dress forms they have here. I don't like them. They are cheap, break easy, and just not worth the money. Now I know alot of people on craftster have them and I don't mean to be rude, that is just my opion on them.
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Material for stretch jeans that isnt too spandex-y? on: May 07, 2008 06:52:34 PM
I'd see if there are any online shops the sell printed stretch denim. That denim has (usually) about 3% spandex in the blend for a slight ease.
