1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Can anyone recommend a wrap dress pattern? on: March 24, 2012 01:14:00 PM
Everyone says how wonderful they are, but I can't find any patterns to make one and they don't seem to carry wrap dresses in plus sizes in my area. I'm about a 26. Thanks!
2  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / Want to try dyeing... so how do I get started? on: November 10, 2009 08:11:08 PM
Are there any good websites I should look for?

And what supplies do I need? I need to try to go as inexpensively as possible. And my projects will probably be about the size of a fat quarter 18 x 22. I don't have much space to work in. I'll probably use the results for quilting... quilts, wall hangings, bags. Probably not clothing unless I do scarves. Usually muslin or cotton, possibly silk.

Would appreciate any advice.
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Men's jackets re-purposed? on: April 16, 2009 04:26:47 PM
I was thinking about going to Goodwill and buying a men's wool jacket and hacking it apart to use as the exterior of a bag (maybe the Amy Butler Sophia pattern).  Has anybody ever tried to do this?  Should I use an interfacing to give the wool some stiffness.

And I was thinking about using leather handles but don't know where to get those.

Maybe this bag would be more classic than using a cotton print for the exterior.

4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Reversible tank top pattern? on: April 14, 2009 06:04:21 PM
Can anyone recommend one for me, or at least a pattern for a tank?  I'm probably about a size 26 or 28.  Thank you!   Grin
5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Patterns for a girl with a dunlap? on: May 16, 2008 12:56:44 PM
(In case you haven't heard the joke "My belly done lapped over my pants.")  So my belly really sticks out... are there any good pattern companies that deal with this issue?  My tummy is really out of proportion to the rest of me.  Any advice welcome!!
6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Flannel pajama pants pattern? on: November 06, 2007 12:15:46 PM
It occurred to me that I'd really like some flannel pants to lay in around my house.

Can anyone recommend a pattern on-line or that you've tried?  I'm not sure if I want to make tops, too -- usually, I just lay around in a t-shirt and pants/shorts.

Thanks!   Cheesy
7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Cape pattern? on: October 11, 2007 01:48:12 PM
I really want a simple pattern for a fleece cape (hopefully, I am going to make it reversible and thus a double thickness).  Does anybody have a good pattern?  Thanks! Cheesy
8  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Does anybody have a pattern for a fleece jacket? on: September 21, 2007 01:21:19 PM
I need one for me, preferably reversible for extra warmth.  I'm having the devil of a time this year, they don't even seem to be selling sweatshirts my size!  (When I had just gotten the idea of deconstructing a sweatshirt to make a jacket.  Grrr.)  Thanks, everybody!
9  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / "Jams" pattern on: June 27, 2007 05:27:22 PM
Does anyone have a pattern for plus-size "jams"?  For you youngsters, that was the name of unisex boxer shorts in the 80s!  I had a pair I dearly loved, many years and many pounds ago.  I'd love to have some again.
10  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Need help finding good undergarments on: June 18, 2007 05:19:47 PM
So I went shopping Sat. with a thin friend, who was amazed at the difficulty I had finding clothing -- all I wanted was some black pants for job interviews.  I think the problem is that I have developed quite a belly (privately I call it a dunlap because "it done lapped over my belt") and I need something to hold it in.

Any suggestions for something effective?  I'm about a 24/26.
