Can I eat it?  Grin

And do you have a recipe for us to see?

That's awesome! Will the pattern be in various sizes? Perhaps in the 30dd/E ( Undecided )range?

You may have taken a while to make them, but at least they look professionally done. Good job!
134  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: My body is spread across two pattern sizes! Help! on: June 10, 2007 10:11:06 PM
(Also, does anyone here have all their measurements fit one standard size? Or does everyone have to deal with weird sizes? It seems ridiculous to me that there is a 4.5 size difference between my waist and hips- I have a figure dammit!)

If its any help there are 10" between my waist and hips as I'm 32-23-33, so its not just you!

That doesn't sound so bad. The difference with my waist to hips is 12" and between my bust and waist is another 11". The size charts that were given with the link, if you got a chance to look at them ( http://simplicity.com/index.cfm?page=section/fittips/meas_charts/ei_measchar.htm#misses_misspetite ), you could make a size 8/10 for the bust, 4 for the waist and 6 for the hips. The smaller the sizes, 4, 6 and 8, the less of a difference there is between them. I think I may have mentioned it in my comment above that these three sizes have only 1/8 - 1/4" of an inch between each cutting line on the pattern, and as you get into the larger sizes there's 1/2" and more between each cutting line which if altered incorrectly could make some strange looking seams on a garment if you were making a big size difference between the waist and bust/hips.

As for the link on how to adjust for a fuller bust...I didn't find it very helpful because the problem I always have is my bust is much bigger than my underbust, so how do I alter a pattern to make it fit my boobs but also make it fit my underbust without it looking too awkward? Especially if some of the patterns I have don't have a seam running under the bust so I can't add bust darts like the ones commonly found on an empire waist.

I have the same problem but almost the opposite. I have to take the waist in much more and let the bust and sometimes the hips out. I haven't quite figured out what size I should make because when they list the measurements and then the finished measurements there's a drastic difference...that's what I always have a problem with. Not only that but different dress styles as well. I just bought two from Simplicity, one is a 60's retro style and the other is 3775. The retro one is obviously made for a sleeker look but I was hoping for it to be the least bit form fitting...anyhow I ended up cutting it a different size than I cut the other dress because it has such a straight shape to it and not much detail either...just front and back darts.

I don't know which measurements you're looking at but consider the finished measurements instead of the ones on top and have about an inch or two extra if you don't like clothes fitting. Buy it in the size of whatever is biggest on you and then taper it from there. You can usually figure it out simply by measuring the distance from all the sizes. I know with size 4, 6 and 8 there's about 1/8" difference to 1/4" at the most between the cutting lines, and then it increases with sizes bigger.

I'm jealous of your Walmart. The ones around here (MA) all have some plain generic stuff, I hardly find anything cute unless it's a baby print, both for the clearance and regular priced fabric. Good job though, it looks really cute!  Grin

That is so cute!!  Grin And I love the hat. This one was next on my list to knit from Knitty. I made the Kate Cat, also very cute.

You could create another dress. Cut out the SAMPLE and replace it with another fabric, so you'll end up with a dress that has vertical stripes or diagonal stripes, depending on where the word is.

Skirts is another possibility, shirts, jackets...any article of clothing, especially if you have some dresses that are the exact same color then you'll have a lot of fabric to work with.

Blankets, and quilting as the other poster mentioned. Drapes. Pillows. Table cloths and placemats, cloth napkins.

Those are really cute. I like the green one with the sheep especially! If only I could do this with my husband's laptop...except it weighs about 20 lbs, lol!

That fabric is so cute, and the dress came out really good. Nice job!
