1  Re: Patterns in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions by mub on: September 27, 2007 07:38:31 AM
I used a Khaliah Ali pattern for my wedding dress, and it worked out beautifully!  It wasn't specifically a "wedding dress" pattern, but I thought it worked =)

Simplicity 4478

We used the size that fit my shoulders, but altered it on the hips because I have the nice*coughihateitcough* triangle shaped body that makes nothing fit correctly...

I've also had good success with the "Today's Fit" line by Sandra Betzina that Vogue sells.  They are very helpful in how to alter the pattern to fit YOU.

I have a fairly simple Janome, but I'll cheat a bit and post a cell phone picture of a gorgeous vintage mint-green Husqvarna Rotary I saw at a flea market recently. Fortunately (or un-) I didn't have any money. But isn't it pretty?
Edited because an actual picture is good.

Lamantin!  I have that sewing machine =D The inside of my case is even the same!

How much was it at the flea market?  I picked mine up for 30 or 35 euro (I can't remember).  I looooove it.

This is my machine.  I moved to The Netherlands in March and couldn't bring my other machine (Viking somewhere in the 6000 series... awesome machine) with me due to weight restrictions so I was kinda bummed out.  But hark!  I found this on Queen's Day (the whole city turned into a flea market basically) and snatched it up for 30 euro.  It only does a straight stitch, but I found a zig zag foot that works, and I have an old singer buttonhole foot that should just snap on also.  It's a Husqvarna CL-8 that we think is either late 50's or early 60's.  There wasn't a date anywhere in the manual or on the machine though, so we're just making an educated guess =)

4  Biscornu- pincushion in Needlework: Completed Projects by mub on: July 04, 2007 03:31:31 AM
I made this for a swap on another site that I'm participating in.  It came out really well (if I don't say so myself).  They're not hard either, a little bit fiddly, but not too bad!  


The tutorial I used suggested that you use buttons, but I had a cute little flower bead that I thought went just right with it, so I used it instead.

full shot


A lot of people make the bottoms really pretty too, but I was making myself blind stitching on this linen, so I did something simple!

EDIT:  I made another one!

I got my first box, from Cherryrose!

I can't believe how much stuff you can fit into such a tiny box!  I got some great sequins, some stickers, a cute clothespin with a flower, some rhinestone bits, ribbon rosettes, and a few others too.  I love the outside too, it's really pretty =D  Thank you!

I'm in =)  I told java I'm making "Runny Nose Kleenex Holders" (hey, she said be creative with the title!).  I'm in for 10, they'll most likely be different fabric from these since I've got this particular one in my etsy shop and don't have tons of fabric left to make more.  Should be fun though, I'm stoked!

Okay... holy crap!  I got the best angel package in the history of the world!  I went outside to get the mail, and there was this giant box on my porch step and I was thinking "hmm I'm not expecting anything today!"  And I open it, and WOW!  

There are some kitchen towels in there, decorated in red and yellow (just what I wanted), and one even says "ik hou van jou" which is "I love you" in Dutch, and quite fitting, since I'm marrying a Dutchman!  Lots of good beads which I'm totally excited about, since I can put them into the necklaces I've been making.  There's a microscope slide pendant in there with berries on it.  I love that because I've been busy making DIY kits for people and haven't really got to keep any of the slide goodies for myself *L*  There's a glass holder that's etched with tulips on 3 sides and KIM on the 4th side!  I think it will look really pretty with a little tea light in it.  And awesomely enough, my angel found out that I didn't get in on the ABC part of the Alphabet ATC swap that's going on in the paper board, and made me an a, b, and c to add to my collection.  And then there is this absolutely amazing quilting book!  It's about doing celtic designs in applique on your quilts.  I can't wait to take it out and show my grandma and see if we can get started on a new project.  

My angel didn't sign her name on my package, but the ATCs are signed with trifarina and doing my own detective work I can see they city they are in matches the city that my package came on, so I have a sneaky suspicion!  I'm really so completely happy with this =D  It totally made my day!
