581  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: color question on: April 28, 2007 06:38:59 AM
My favorite is second to the right. In any case, I would put the vanilla in the middle unless you are super-skinny.

Thanks... in the meantime I though that I would make the Aline with four pieces - the thing is that the dress can be worn in all directions, and having seams down the center but not down the sides seems kind of weird to me... I thought I would make the boob tube with one seam, which is 90 degrees from the opening in the upper layer that can be tied in all sorts of ways, and then I should be able to wear the dress in various directions without the seam going down the middle of my boobs... maybe it's the hormones but it also seems a little strange.
I am taking the sizes from a dress that I wore up to the end of my last pregnancy.
Thanks for the tip.
583  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / YES PLEASE!!! on: April 27, 2007 12:58:11 AM
I was just thinking of writing an ode to my granny panties. And if I could find them in sexier versions than stuff my real granny wouldn't be caught dead in, all the better.

Nothing says loving like being hugged by a pair of panties that could double as a parachute if you have to jump from a building... and I mean it. Particularly being preggers - I like to feel loved and supported.

Right on!

My best friend is getting married 2 weeks before my due date, and I have to wear a strapless gown to the event (we made a pact back in the day...). That's not necessarily a bad thing, because my belly will actually help keep my boobs up  Tongue

Anyhoo, I found this old string here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=111311.0, and fell in love with the idea.
Got the fabric (black lycra) and everything, now I have a question: I want to make the A-line skirt with only one seam. Can this be done? Should I make the top of the skirt (which connects to the boob tube) straight or curved?

This is the first dress I am making by myself - I want to get cracking soon so I have time for a plan B in case it turns out to be a total catastrophe...
585  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / That is so cool. Or hot. Or whatever you crazy kids are saying nowadays. on: April 20, 2007 01:50:13 AM
Some day in the future, when I will regain ownership of my boobs and will be neither breastfeeding nor pregnant, I will do exactly that with the stack of really sexy bras (that got me into this situation in the first place Tongue) that's sitting around and getting old while I keep myself busy with full support nursing bras...

I got really tired of rotating the same 5 shirts, and still have more than 2 months to go, so I decided to pull some old fitted shirts from the stash and make a go of it. This is my first creation in the series, I have another one in the works and one more idea that I am toying with.
587  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Big bad baby blanket on: April 18, 2007 12:22:26 PM
I'm starting now... my second is due in 10 weeks, and I decided he deserves one of his own, without all the pinks and purples that I put into his big sister's blanky.

I still have to modify the pattern, because I am using Colinette Jitterbug (I wanted the blanket to be lightweight, and the colorway was to die for...) so now I am just preparing a gauge sample.

So, here we go...
588  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Ballerina Kinder Surprise Egg Doll on: April 18, 2007 11:12:43 AM
Ever since my brother went to a ballet performance only to find that the star of the show was a giant Kinder egg, I could not shake the mental image. So I made this for him, in the hope that I will be able to get it out of my head, or at least go in to mass production and capitalize on my hyperactive imagination... Tongue
