1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: I have a serious, complicated, special, big problem...advice please on: August 17, 2007 08:56:24 PM
I think that's awesome and totally do-able. The biggest thing would be fitting the bodice - but there are plenty of patterns for that sort of dress and it isn't like you'll need a buttload of boning because you can wear 'normal' underwear with it.

You should be able to find some options http://www.simplicity.com/index.cfm?cat=4&type=19&sec=43&startrow=1 there, particularly in Renaissance. Fabric is gonna be the kicker - take a friend if you can because it is really easy to get overwhelmed.

I always like re-fashioning stuff for practice. Adding bands to the bottom of shirts, re-doing necklines etc. Circle skirts are good, as are a-lines, pencil skirts are good for getting the measuring stuff down. If you like flowing stuff, maybe try one of the smock tops? Basically a rectangle with a band at the top and some straps.

Oh my I just love the hippo! and the book!

I just made another stuffed DoR for my sister in law. It's her birthday and she does love Terry Pratchett. She actually has a tattoo of the DoR and Quoth on her back. So I whipped up another stuffie for her. He's currently naked though. I gave my practice one to a friend's kid, who promptly asked me where his skin is. A distubing question...
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Worlds Ugliest Sweater!-Opinions Needed on: April 10, 2007 08:58:54 PM
I have a blanket my great-grandma crocheted. It was the last thing she ever crocheted, because she realised her eyesight was just too bad by that point.

Not a single colour matches. There are occasional black joins for some reasons. Unexplained holes and dropped stitches. A lot of it is in pumpkin orange. It is truly hideous. I'm keeping it for a baby blanket.

Never underestimate the small things. Bind it all up with scratchy black wool.

I GOT IT!!! I also sent today, so it's all very synchronous.

I am so very very pleased! I must apologise for the terrible photos - I can't believe I broke my camera over the weekend. So they're all phone-photos.

First up the cards and the stamp:

The super-spiffy lipgloss holder (I love these things and have been meaning to make one for ages!)

And the necklace:

And the most fabulous bag I own (and I have one with sequins, farm animals and bright pink lining!)

Oh dangit. I've signed up and now there's another swap I want to do, but my newb status prevents it. WOE I SAY!

But I do loves me some Discworld. I keep making my husband choke on his foor when we eat out at fast food joints by pretending to be Dibbler.

Sausage inna bun! Fresh! Real meat! Inna bun!

Really deep V will look good. So get a slightly too big, super stretchy wrap dress* and wear it with a matching cami.

*I got mine for $20 at Rockmans. It is awesome - a little bit too big so it slinks down and is a nice length and the V lessens the impact of the boobs'o'doom.

Wrap shirts/dresses depend on how big your boobs are - it never ever looks right on me unless the wrap is closer to my waist. The cross over bit goes wonky.

I agree with the belted thing - create a waist. So a halter with a belted skirt would be nice - just make sure the halter bit suits you. I've got skinny shoulders anda big rack, so my boobs are wider than my shoulders, so halters look like a sack of crap on me. My sister also has large boobs, but broad shoulders and looks wonderful in halters.
