1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Serpentine dress costume help needed on: August 17, 2017 03:32:12 PM
I have been tasked with recreating the dress in this video


Help! So I know loads of fabric will be required - habotai silk I'm thinking. But what is it? Perhaps two full circles, front and back? Lots of triangles sewn together to make very frilly circles?
2  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Seija question - changing colours on: August 13, 2012 04:38:46 AM
Hey, I'm pretty new to crochet, figured HH was a good place to start! I am expecting my first baby in December and want to get some things crafted up before then. Seija looks pretty easy, can't go wrong with a big pile of dc, eh! The only issue I have is when changing colours. I've never really gotten it. The pattern says to fasten off and join next colour. Should I be finishing with a sl st then crocheting into the top of the last complete stitch with the new colour? Or should it be like the tapestry crochet that Stoller describes at. The start, where you just crochet over the long tail of the first colour? Any advice appreciated! The pictures in the book and here are so neat and flat, but the miniature sample I made didn't look so neat at all!
3  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / DKNY Scarf Blouse - help on: April 10, 2012 03:23:17 PM
I want to make this top. I'm thinking some big scarves, two holes for arms and I'm happy?! Maybe scoop the neckline a bit so it's not too slouchy around the neck, and possibly curve the hem up from the front corners, so the back isn't as long?

there's two layers of fabric - 1 red satin, 1 shimmery gold/black net. all  stapled to the back of the frame. i tried my glue gun but it didn't work very well - the glue wouldn't stick to the fabric at all, and kept drying too quickly.
