ok, slightly more coherent now. Smiley

{ } used below just so the code will be visible.

so instead of using this html code to create a thumbnail image that's clickable to open the full size:
{a href="imageurlhere" onclick="window.open(this.href, '_blank', 'width=300,height=400,scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0'); return false"}{img  src="imageurlhere" width="50" height="66" border="1"  /}{/a} 

I use this BBCode:

what if I want to specify the size of the image that appears in the post?
do I always add the modifiers to the first [img] or [url] section, such as [img width="500"] or [url target="blank"?] 

can any html modifiers be used, or are there restrictions?

finally, do all links automatically open in a new window? or do I need to add the target colde?

thanks Smiley

2  craftster resizing my pics (hosted on my own site) in Craftster Itself by dyno on: February 25, 2007 09:22:13 AM
I noticed that the craftster picture hosting will auto resize everything to fit within 350x350. I had a tutorial that was sized 600x800, to print on a letter size page. So I used my own server instead of craftster's when I posted in a thread. However, craftster still resized them when I made the post, which then crunches all the text and images making it hard to read. In addition, the images are not "live" to allow the user to click and open the original size to read it clearly.

When I clicked Modify on my post I saw that my original images had been sized to 500x666 -- [img width=500 height=666]. Changing that to 600x800 had no effect, it would continually revert to 500x600.

Why does this happen?
Does craftster always resize external photos to max. 500wide?
Since crafster doesn't accept proper html in posts I can't set up the image to link to at least link to the full size version -- is there another "crafster code" way I can do this?

edited to consolidate posts, fix images and generally make more sense


love.is.a.battlefeild you may want to edit the title to indicate there are some tutorials and tutorial links in this thread, to help others in the future. Smiley


1.) see artisticnightmare's post above for a great option

2.) Dorothy madness and tutu much fun
from fellow craftster fromvenuswithlove, scroll down for the tut (link also on next page)

3.) Kiddley's No-sew tutu
this is for kids, but can easily be modified for adults


1.) see junquette's post above for a good description

2.) dyno's tutorial (see below)
love.is.a.battlefeild asked me for my illustrated tutorial, so I posted it here

3.) Black and red tulle tutu skirt - now w/ tutorial
I also found this other tutu tutorial by fellow craftster darkfaeriedrowning

4.) TuTu Girl
worth checking for design reference. 3 different styles of tutus: poofy, classic, princess
These are also for kids, but should easily be adapted for adults. You can purchase instructions from the link above ($16.99-$37.99). DISCLAIMER: I've never used them, so I can't vouch for the instructions.

dyno's illustrated tutorial

here's the illustrated tutorial I made for a sewn tutu. I've revised the original page images to fit on craftster without scaling, so now the text is readable. Hopefully this will help. Smiley There are probably typos and such, let me know if you find errors.


The amount of tulle (netting) you'll need depends on your waist measurement and the amount of poof / gathering you want. the Preparation section below tells you how to determine the size of each panel (layer). Multiply that by the number of layers you want and you'll know your yardage.

Also, if you don't want the waistband to show (a "no-waistband" design), simply turn the final tutu inside out and flip the skirt layers over the elastic band. If you're layering different colors you'll need to plan accordingly so when you flip the final tutu the colors are in the correct order.

that's a fantastic solution for a no-sew tutu.  and the costume looks great!

Can I ask how you tied the strips of tulle on:
did you fold in half, make a loop and pull the ends through (see left)? or just use a regular knot (see right)?

i alredy searched for a tute that would help me(on craftser)
....I have an illustrated tutorial if you need it.

meanwhile, here's some design options for the yellow and black. pardon the crude drawings:

use a stiff opaque fabric  (like tafetta) on the bottom layer to prevent it from being see-thu. or just wear little shorts underneath.

I'm not sure that's all 1 piece, but if it is you'd cut it like this:

(the arm holes aren't shown accurately because I just quickly flipped the existing image you had. and the vertical lines are just to distinguish the front from the back, not cut lines)

you can just fold it in half on the mid line and cut both halves at once like this:

That isn't a one-seam garment. You have to sew the back "H" as well as the top shoulder seams to assemble it, plus add the apron strings and pockets. Then you have to stitch the arm holes, neck hole and hem to finish it.

hope that helps Smiley

It's a bit hard to get a full sense of the design from the pic, but I'd like to see piping along the vertical edge with tabs across it that button. sort of like this:
