That's so beautiful! I love the look of the buttons down the back are the tiny loops hard to make?

Car clothing FTW! I'm definitely going to try this, thanks for the advice!

OH MY GOD I HAVE A CABRIO TOO! Mine's bright blue, '98. What year is yours? Were these hard to make? I saw some FANTASTIC blue and white zebra print fur online that looks like it would match my pain and I've wanted to make seat covers for so long, but I've always been kind of intimidated. Any advice?

Basically this is the coolest project ever.

Does anyone know what kind of fabric one would use in making riding breeches? I know it's some kind of knit, I'm just not sure what, exactly. I need to order the fabric online there's no fabric stores around where I live Cry and I can't tell without being able to feel it. The fabric is lighter than denim, but not t-shirt weight, either. Obviously it needs to be able to withstand being rubbed against a saddle (and probably a few falls too!) so it can't be too thin.

Does anyone have any idea what I'm looking for? Huh

They'd be demon wings so I suppose batlike, but I'm OK with making variations in the design to make construction easier. As for size, they need to be able to be seen clearly from the back of a theater, so about 2-3 feet each, fully extended. Again, though, I'm willing to make changes if need me.

I want to include moving wings in some of the costumes for my school's musical this year. The minimum range of motion they need to have is to be able to fold shut and open once. I would prefer that they have more motion than this, however if they could continue to open and close throughout the scene, that would be cool, as would flapping motions.

I am sure some of you crafty types have some experience with making things move. Can anyone tell me how I would accomplish this? Also, does anyone have any advice on what materials to use, or anything else you think would be helpful for me to know?

Thanks muchly!

I love your leggings! haha leggings are one of my favorite things to make- they're so simple but they always look so much better than anything you can find at a store!
As for hemming the bottom edge, use a zigzag stitch and stretch the fabric a little as you sew. Don't stretch it too much, or it will get all wavy, just enough so it'll fit on your leg.

That's so cute! I love it! I love the way it fits you- I like clothes with longer sleeves. And I know how you feel about the buttons- it can be so hard to find matching notions sometimes. Anyway, great job!
