So FUN!  Grin

You could also use fabric glue (put a plastic bag inside the pillow case so you don't glue the pillowcase together)
Stitch Witchery. (Yeah, that's its name. Makes instant iron-ons)

Chances are, the Joann's clerks were rude because the didn't know. Many are not expert seamstresses... or even OK seamstresses.

Or the fabric fumes got to them.

Just "pity their ignorance and despise them" (Charles Dickens. Not an expert seamstress either.)

SO -- any thoughts on the Simplicity vs. the McCalls?  IMHO, the SImplicity has a better skirt -- more A line and less gather-y. And I like the long, band-less option. I think the bottom band may be 1 contrast fabric too much for me... another honking big horizontal. OTOH, I do have terrific legs.

What to emphasize: Nice tits or terrific legs?

Bette Midler had a song "Pretty Legs and Great Big Knockers"
Could be a ring tone....

And while y'all are thrifting, look for Ultrasuede. It makes the BEST appliques!

1. A wedding dress can be 2 pieces. Much easier to fit. Find a killer top and then have a simple skirt made.
2. Get the best fabric you can afford.
3. Cleavage. You got it, sugar. Flaunt it!

That's the pattern you STARTED with? Yikes, girl -- everything's going to be easier than that!

Superb job. Try a couple of pins over the lapels from hell -- make them a "design feature."

The polka dot is very Marilyn Monroe. I admire how you got a pattern to fit, and then used it over again.

The yellow version could make a cute pinny for fall

Charming! And you got the hem even... which is tricky Grin
2528  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Please help me with my hat! on: August 29, 2006 01:22:43 PM
Underneath the needles you've used as markers, there are stitches. Put a piece of contrasting yarn to mark those lines, and remove the needles. Then stick one needle through each knit loop where the yarn is. What you'll end up with will look like cast on stitches on the needle. (Try a smaller needle to stick through the loops/pick up if it's too hard to use the bigger needle.) Remove the yarn marker. Then knit the picked up loops with both needles untill you're done with the flap.

Most picking up stitches is more intuitive, because they're on the edge. So you're doing it the hard way first.

You could shorten the straps for the smock top option by tieing a bow around the loose straps behind your back. "Creative problems solving" ajd a "design detail" Cheesy

Looks like the Marylin Monroe dress from "Some Like It Hot". Folkwear patterns has a version.
