Cute. I like the red ones best because the beads are free to move up and down (I'm that sort of person that just has to pull earrings between fingers in order to feel the touch of glass and metal and hear that characteristic sound of beads sliding on wire).

Your hats are just adorable. I'm in love with the second one.
It's too bad I can't make such an amazing thing.

It looks very cute, but I think you should consider putting some boning next to those eyelets/grommets. That way it wouldn't be so wavy in the back but straight.

Thanks for the comment.

I made the pattern after the original skirt. It is very simple trapeze skirt. I'll try to make some illustration/explanation later and put it here.

The dress is sweet and the material is awesome.
Tell me, I can't see well, is it lacing in the back?

Thanks. I love it too, though the original skirt was much prettier.
Pinching is the easiest part.

My attempt of making a tute on pinching

Decide where you want the textile (black rectangle) to be pinched (white dot). Fold textile vertically so that the "pinch" is on the fold (dotted line). Then fold textile horizontally so that the "pinch" is on the corner. Then just sew a line to form a triangle with the sides of the corner where the dot is. I suppose you could fold it once more in half at the angle in order to get richer "pinched flower" (sometime it does remind me of flower) and then sew a line.

It looks great if you make several pinches close to each other. Than the creases they form produce a lovely draped effect.

This is my first project. I'm completely self taught and inexperienced and I think that can be seen. The photos are, well, bad, but I hope you can get the picture.

Several years ago I bought myself beautiful linen trapeze skirt that was "pinched" in several places. I loved it so much and I wore it till it completely tore apart. Recently I found thicker black striped linen for, like, nothing, so I thought I could try and remake that skirt. This is the result.

That pinched thingy (I have no idea what to call it even in my mother tongue)

The skirt is creased because I wore it, completely forgetting that linen will crease if you even look at it.

Thank you for looking. Any comment will be welcome.

180  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Making Your Own Corset? on: February 25, 2007 02:10:52 AM
First, hello to everyone. Questions and answers I've found here helped me resolve some of my dilemmas (is this the correct expression?) so thank you all a lot  Kiss

I always wanted to make an underbust corset. Some time ago I found the site Ms_Tori_Jones mentioned several times. I've made a mockup and am very pleased how it turned out. I think I'm ready to make the real thing. Thing is, I want to make a reversible corset so I wouldn't have to make two of them (it is too expencive for me to buy two sets of steel boning). I'm just not quite sure how to make it reversible and still look nice. Any suggestions?
