3  Re: 2 Reconstructed Tops, A Skirt From A Sheet & A Pink Dress!!!(Image OBESE!!!) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by xxclone_your_loverxx on: March 05, 2007 12:22:47 PM

you are excellent at reconstructing! you should make some tutorials. I tend to have ALOT of trouble when it comes to sleeves

Ok, here is a really rough tutorial/explanation of how to do sleeves. Note that I think this only works for stretchy material.

Cut out two shapes out of stretchy material, sew up the sides (so you end up with two 'tubes' than you can slide over your arm. make sure the the t-shirt is inside out and the sleeve is right side out and slide the sleeve into the armhole of the shirt (put the seam of the sleeve so it is meeting the armpit seam of the shirt). They should be right sides together. sew around the armhole, then pull the sleeve out (the whole thing should be inside out now). Turn it the right way around and voila!!!! You have a sleeve. Then repeat for the other side. Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

(I hope that actually makes any sense?? Feel free to ask me anything if It doesn't)

Thank you sooooooo much everybody!!!!!!!!! Grin Grin Grin
wow! thank you! that really does help me, now i see everything ive been doing wrong.

4  Pink leopard corset style top in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by xxclone_your_loverxx on: January 24, 2007 04:00:19 PM
So this garment is the result of actually USING my dressform. I just layed the fabric over it and started pinning and cutting. I actually am REALLY pleased with how it turned out it took an entire day to make (cause I'm slow and take lots of breaks) Anywho. the fabric i used is REALLY coft but isnt strecthy so I had to make it to perfectly fit me. I added the strap around the neck as a last minute thing cause it was a lil plain without it. Please let me know what you think!
