261  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Dress problems HELP ME PLEASE on: March 06, 2007 06:53:24 PM
You could make a half circle or 3/4 circle skirt.  Add a swoopie type thing in the front that would go in the center of the bodice over your lower sternum... I think... and sew mini pleats or slight gathering where you wanted the skirt to be fuller.  (It looks like it would be in the front, and the center and maybe two or four more.  Hope this helps!!

Wow, this is quite an undertaking you've gotten yourself into, there.  Wider stripes would be less I'm-a-convict-ly...  I'd be careful with then though, they can tend to create unwanted optical illusions.  I like the options you've gathered for inspiration.  I like the second dress the best.  Option B on the first Jessica McClintock pattern...  It looks a bit easier than some of the others. 

To find fabric, I'd talk to your seamstress friend, she  might have some suggestions, the best I could think of is looking online for it and frequenting the fabric stores. 

I'm in about the same boat, experience wise.  I hope it goes well! I'd help out more, if I could!

I read alot of the other posts, and I agree with some of them.  You can pull off the crop top, but maybe not in certain situations...  I think the best idea was using snaps around the bottom...  you could maybe even use buttons in a pattern on the outside to cover up the stitching from the snap.  I like buttons, so that's what I would say, but you might have something done with it already, since this is two months later...  I too envy your hair, it's soo pretty!!

Oh, my gosh!!!  I bought that book a while back, and I went out and spent almost $60 to get the perfect yarn.  Once I was ready to start, I couldn't get past ROW 4 or something rediculous like that.  I couldn't figure out how exactly it was constructed...  I haven't done anything with it recently, it made me too agravated.  Help would be welcome, since you all seem to have gotten through it okay!
