1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Skirt or dress with drapey sides...how to? on: November 11, 2012 08:27:17 AM
Have you tried drafting the pattern like this?

And then sewing the top part beside the waist line

(I hope my explanation isn't confusing)

Or even making it shaped like a square with a waist line?

Hope it helps Smiley

I guess you could increase the number of (white) rows til it reaches the desired size and then finish with the last row

I've never watched Project Runway but I've heard about all the "Make it work" and it's awesome. You worked it XD

you can use it when your hair is greasy to make it look, huuum, ungreasy? Just put some on your head and brush it. The powder absorbs the grease and make it looks fresh. Just don't put too much or your head will be all white

It took me more than 10 years to sew something and be proud of it. I'm no longer "wasting fabrics" as my mom used to say, but sewing is something very hard (and yet fascinating)

I've got this book and even though it's a lil old, it has some very useful tips: http://www.betterworldbooks.com/101-sewing-secrets-id-0865732507.aspx?PageVersion=Alt

I absolutely love gray walls!

And I think gray walls would go very nice with the red couch and dining room walls and would look amazing with the white accents (door arches and baseboards)

Looks awesome! I love AVPM as well! You've inspired me to start using their amazing quotes!

Could you explain how you made the pattern please? I've only just gotten Photoshop and don't have a clue about how i'd use it to write a pattern! Thanks  Smiley

I created a 5x5 pixels pattern with a 1px border on only one side. Filled a new file with it and started "stitching" with a 4px brush. You can make it bigger, with a 10x10px pattern (I think it's better)

Here's a screencap of the process: http://www.twitpic.com/4rnyun

and here's a .pat file with two patterns (the one I used for this project and a bigger one): http://www.4shared.com/file/uumJj9Pi/cross_stitch.html
