21  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Need ideas for a neckline on: November 11, 2015 04:26:16 PM
I'm trying to take this pattern and make it into a top.  I want to do view A and cut it to a shirt length.

I'm not sure how I want to do the neckline though.  I think the stand up lace would be too itchy, but I'm not sure how I could replace it.  Leaving it plain seems like a bad idea as it would probably look weird.  The stand up collar option they include would probably look fine, but it might still bother my neck, plus I'm on the short side so it doesn't take much for stand up collars to be too tall. Thoughts?

Thank you!  I was a little concerned that the ribbon didn't perfectly match the red in the dress, but now that it's done I think it all came out well.

I finished this dress a few days ago.  I got a whole bunch of the fabric about 2 years ago (I still have 5 yards! Shocked ) and knew I wanted to make a Lolita dress with it, but it took some time for me to decide how I wanted to do it.  I also reconstructed the blouse underneath to make it fit and added the lace.

Close up of the front:

And here's the shirring on the back.  It took a little but of fussing with it, but I was able to make it so the whole bodice was lined, even with the shirring.  It still has a side zipper, it was too hard to put on with just the elastic, but it still makes it fit a whole lot better.

I agree, the elbow thing is weird and I don't really like the original bubble shape.  The alteration you made makes it look much better.  The color is nice too, even if it's not the deep purple you were going for.  Good job!

And, since it's your first recon, you learned an important lesson: Dye first, stitch second!  Don't feel bad, we all do things like this sometimes. Smiley

Thank you!  The sewing was actually easier than the math!  I followed the formula in the tutorial, but I must have made a mistake somewhere because it wound up too big.  I took it in about an inch and a half at the side seam on the waistband and just gathered it a little more there.  I think it still blends in pretty well, which is good, because I wasn't about to take it all apart and do it all again!

I had two weeks of vacation time I needed to use up before April, but am too poor to go anywhere and my husband used up all his vacation time anyway.  So what did I do?  Stay home and make a skirt it's too cold to wear!  I used some Valentine's Day print fabric from Joann's (which is now half price!) and this tutorial for the half-elastic waistband: http://egl.livejournal.com/14270972.html

30  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / High Five Stick- How do I do this? on: February 09, 2015 07:53:50 AM
I go to an anime convention every year, and I always end up going home about the same time as when the rave starts.  There's always a huge line for it, and there's no way to avoid passing by it.  It's become a tradition for the ravers to attempt to high five everyone passing by them, which is fine, except sometimes they become belligerent when someone doesn't play along.  I have chronic pain issues in my hand and really don't want 300+ people smacking me.  Last year a guy insulted me for not high fiving him and I cursed him out.

I'd like to avoid conflicts in the future, so I've decided I want to try to make a hand on a stick, but I'm not sure how to go about doing it.  I could just stuff a glove with stuffing and put a dowel rod through it, but would that stand up to the abuse it will take being smacked around by hundreds of teenage party goers?  Any suggestions?
