1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / 70s Disco Dress on: January 23, 2016 05:20:49 PM
Hey all! I'm turning 21 in a couple of weeks and I found a bar that does a disco night the weekend of my birthday (dreams do come true!). I want to make a 70s kind of dress to wear. Think Saturday Night Fever kind of style.
This patten: https://www.etsy.com/listing/254984649/slip-dress-vintage-disco-party-dress?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=disco%20sewing%20pattern&ref=sr_gallery_19
Is what I'd like to evoke. I don't think it would be hard, right? I could do the top like a slip dress and then just add an A-line skirt? What I'm not sure how to do is the waist and whether an A-line would have enough swing to it? Also, what kind of fabric would work well? I imagine something with some weight to it
Any suggestions?
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Frida Movie dress patterns? Pic heavy on: December 25, 2013 05:09:36 PM
Hi all! Hope you're all having a happy holiday!

I've been watching Frida over and over and have fallen in love with two dresses in particular that Frida (Salma Hayek) wears.  One's blue with half sleeves, a square neck, and buttons up the back.  The other is white with puffed sleeves, a square neck and buttons up the back.  I took some screenshots but they unfortunately aren't of the highest quality.

If anyone knows of a pattern or tutorial that could help me recreate these dresses could you point me in the right direction? Thanks!

My grandma gave me this sewing pattern from when she was my age, http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=6241485346&rvr_id=&crlp=1_263602_263622&UA=WXI7&GUID=a856391e1270a0e202133a73ffefcc31&itemid=6241485346&ff4=263602_263622  Simplicity 5157, sadly however, she was smaller than me Cry and I've fallen in love with the dress, does anyone know how to upsize a pattern or know of another pattern that is almost identical?  Help would be much appreciated
8  COOKING / Dessert / Cream filling? on: June 23, 2009 08:31:35 PM
Ok, you know how those cakes you get at grocery store, the big ones used for graduations/parties?  The chocolate ones sometimes have this delectable, delish vanilla creme filling, and I was wondering if anyone knew a recipe for it.  Sorry if it's not enough information for you
