1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Machine Knitters Unite! on: February 12, 2014 05:24:10 PM
I too have wiped the dust off my knitting machine and began playing with it.  I have a Bond Ultimate Sweater machine, which i have made a few pairs of bulky socks, and an Passap knitting machine that i purchased at a flea market for $5.  I have made a few pairs of socks.

I will try to explain the best way i can.....  The shirt that i used was a larger black satin women's, long sleeve.  I cut the sleeves off at the shoulder seams and kept the sleeves whole...no cutting down the  sleeve seam.  I left them whole as the fabric was a bit see through in the single layer and being that part was to go over by chest area i thought i had better leave it doubled.  the "wrist" part of the sleeve had a button cuff on it which i trimmed off but not totally because the sleeve was gathered there and it allowed it to fit correctly on my breasts.  i stitched both of the "wrist" parts of the sleeve to the red skirt, I actually put the skirt on and then pinned the "sleeves" where i needed them to be as to have ample coverage.  the remaining shirt was cut into strips and sewn together to form long ties.  i then stitched the strips to the "shoulder" end of the sleeves and tied around my neck.

Thank you all.  My daughter is not the average size, 6'2", so finding her a dress that covers and still looks young is tough.  I also hate to buy new where there are sooooo many items out there just waiting to be reinvented...I love this site..it has truly blessed my creative side.

this wasn't really a recon...but i embellished this dress and did a few minor touch ups. WE found it at the salvation army.  My 16 year old daughter wanted something different to wear than all the other girls so with a bit of black lace, some safety pins, and some nips here and tucks there...We came to this dress...let me know what you think

was raining so they were running to the car.

My daughter is also a Bigger girl.  She isnt really overweight just bigger than the reg sizes they offer in stores.  We have an awful time finding her jeans or shirts and the mens jeans dont fit her right at all.  We were trying on school clothes on year and she was trying on womens t shirts...she casually asked me...Mom can you go to the mens section to find me some T's...I asked her why and she replied....cuz womens shirts are made for women who are shaped like this.....)(....and I am shaped like this .....{}....Was better with hand gestures...lol.  Anyhow i try to make her instyle stuff that doesnt make everything hang out...

thanks for looking...Oh and if you ahve any suggestion for me for clothing for her let me know...I am up for any advice...

Thank you.  My daughter is 6'2" and I have a hard time finding her shirts long enough to cover what needs to be covered.  But mens shirts are so boxy that they give her no shape.  She dont like tight clothes but this seemed to work great.  Am going to try my hand at some tanks and a few more of these for her.  thanks for the comment...

Sorry no before pics

Was an XXXLg shirt of my hubbys that he didnt like and my daughter did.  She wanted to wear it but swam in it when she put it on.  she is 6'2 so the length was pretty ok...just a bit long but the rest was way way way too big.  So i added some elastic on the sides and under the arms and did the normal take in on the sides...let me know what you think

She really does like wearing it.  I had bought her one and it was too tight under her tummy.  This one only goes around her frong legs and over her back so it is much more comfy for her.  Will try to post better photos without the blurry...thanks again
