1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Help finding a pattern for a Swedish-like dress? on: June 20, 2008 07:38:25 PM
Does anyone know any patterns for dresses, blouses, tunics, or shirts that have a band collar and a button front like the one in this picture of Jens Lekman's bandmate? The sleeve and dress lengths in the pattern are irrelevant, as I can modify them. The collar is most important part at this point.

I can't really think of any other way to describe the dress than as "Swedish" because the girl wearing it is a Swede. It would be very helpful if anyone could help to identify the style and parts of the dress in technical terms. Like, is it a frock or a smock or a tunic? I really have no idea.

Thank you so much!

This is a birthday present for a friend that I made this long weekend. I called her up halfway through and asked her for a shape, symbol, or word that she liked. She texted me the next day and said "whirlpool is a pretty cool word." And so here it is. It is absolutely giant and I hope it's not too monstrous for everyday wear.

This is actually my Italian homework. Yeah, the class is a total blowoff. We're supposed to make a carnevale mask for Tuesday, which is of course Mardi Gras. I thought, "Why make it out of boring things like plastic and paper when I have yarn?"
I took a simple and natural approach to the traditional, opulent carnevale mask by using undyed cotton and floral accents. It was really easy and took only a couple hours.

P.S.- Ignore the unwoven-in end. I'll get to that eventually.

Craftser forum goers, I need your help, stat. I have a yard of green ribbed jersey knit, a serger, hours of free time, and a need for a dress. Any suggestions? Feed me your boundless creativity.
If I manage to complete a dress, I will post pictures toute suite.

Original post, which focuses on boring, long-term goals----->This is my situation:
So I have this stockpile of many colors of interlock, ribbed, stretchy, and otherwise inclined cotton and synthetic fabric.
I also loooove American Apparel's (expensive) clothing, but I am broke and will be for the next four years (college tuition's a bitch these days).
You can probably see where I'm going with this. Does anyone have any experience duplicating AA clothes, or sewing things from jersey? Tutes, advice, and commiseration, are all very much appreciated.

I have a serger, p.s., so that makes my life with no clothing budget easier.
