thanks,,,,and YAAAAYYY! the lady said i could post the link to her blog page,,,, the pics of hers looks different then what mine turned out, i washed mine about 30 mins,,,i checked on it every 5-10 minutes,,,,and i used patons classic wool,,,,,,,,i made one yesterday with the lionbrand lion wool,,,,it hasnt shrunk up as good,,, they are both 100% wool, but the patons is "new" wool, i wonder if that  makes a difference,,,,,,i also used a J hook,,,,,,,,,i didnt realize i was supposed to a I hook until half way thru the hat,,, but it turned out anyway,,if there is a problem with the link let me know,thanks

sorry i haven't checked my replies on here,,,i can't remember who posted some pics of their shirts on here or my search words,,,but i am looking for them for ya,,,what i did was cut my smaller shirt down the sides (for shirts from the armhole all the way to the bottom,,,i haven't done any long sleeved shirts,,maybe for those cut from the underarm on down) and just roughly measured how big of a strip of other material to use,,,i cut up some contrasting old t-shirt material,,, i sew the ends folded or "hemmed" ,,,,,then i sewed the whole  strip on my shirt from bottom up,,,,that way if my strip was to long and needed to be hemmed again it didn't matter if it matched up with the edge of the shirt cause it's under my arm,,, no one will know Grin,,,here is a photo of one of mine,,,,,hope it helps

58  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / ideas on altering a small shirt to larger size on: September 08, 2008 02:35:01 PM
i bought a lot of cool printed t-shirts and most are too small, does anyone have any ideas of how i can make these larger to fit me? i have thought of cutting down the sides and with some wider strips of contrasting fabric, sew those on,,like a big vertical stripe on both sides. if anyone knows a link on here of any pics that someone else has done similar,, let me know thanks

i would like to make one of those pin up girl one piece bathing suits with the fitted skirt front,,,,,,,,i have a vintage pattern for a one piece, i wondered if anyone could help explain how to alter the front bottom of my pattern and where and how to connect the crotch to the skirt front,,,,,,,,,,,,,,at least that is the way some photos  look like to me,,,,,,,,,,like there really isn't a regular front piece under the skirt,,,,,,,,i hope i explained it good enough, any opinions will help,,,thanks


****heres a link (hopefully it will work) that has a photo of some ladies back in the day wearing this style
