1  Weaving/draping dresses?! in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by stilts on: August 13, 2009 04:34:36 AM
Hey guys! So I'm sort of in love with this sort of intricate draping & weaving on dresses:

(at the back)

I especially love the black one & if possible I'd really like to make one like that myself (although http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a166/feobeo2/ramibadedit.png slightly edited, mind the bad photoshop, haha). Problem is, I can't figure out how on earth to do this!

Any pointers?

Also, apart from the actual draping itself, I'm also confused by how they could have made them so that they don't shift, without having stitching showing...the pink one looks like such a fine fabric, I can't imagine it being topstitched but it doesn't compute for me that it can be held together any other way! Haha Tongue

Thanks in advance guys!

2  Beanie/visor/hamster in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by stilts on: June 02, 2007 03:12:01 AM
So I want to knit a hat like this:
except possibly with ear flaps. The only patterns I can find are crochet ones...does anyone know where I can get one? It doesn't really matter if it's cable/ribbed/whatever, it's just...I really can't crochet. Tongue

Anyway, anyone know how to make one and/or where to get a pattern for one?

But I have this fabric:

It's very light and drapey and a little see-through...I'm not sure what to make out of it. I'd prefer to make summer clothes, but I don't want to just make any old thing, you know? I'd rather it make use of the lightness/drapiness. Yeah. It was going to be a dress with a circle skirt, but I got lost on how to hem them, so: any suggestions for what I could do with it? And what I can do about it being see-through, because I'd really rather not walk out of the house in transparent clothes.

Sorry if this is in the wrong place, and thanks a bunch Smiley

5  2x Squishy amorphous bags in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by stilts on: December 01, 2006 08:25:51 PM
So after I got my sewing machine, this was the first thing I made:

Being modelled by our hall table; I swear, when you carry it/it has stuff in it, it isn't quite so...well, squishy and amorphous.

aaand the lining, which is actually a nice warm brown with pink spots...not sure why it came out so blue-y.

And my mum decided she loved it enough that she wanted one:

This is the closest to the actual colouring I got. The buttons need to be resewn =/

Lining! Woo.

I'm currently making one for my sister for Christmas, and one of her friends wants one, too. I'm not sure why everyone loves them so much, haha, unless it's that they're really soft and huggable. You know...if you wanted to hug your bag.
