2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Need advice on tailoring legs on jeans on: July 22, 2011 10:44:24 PM
Ok so heres my prob. I buy jeans to fit my waist comfortably unfortunetly I need a 22/24 waist and a 18/20 leg all my pants are super baggy in the thighs even skinny jeans  Shocked They fit well for 5 minutes after they get out of the dryer, and of course they fit perfect in the freaking dressing room. Then its all down hill it is so bad I have almost had them completely fall off soooo not cool lol. I don't go cheap when it comes to jeans I buy hydraulic brand and at $50-60 a pair I can't just pitch them, not that it would help as I always have this problem. I have 3 darling daughters so I'm on a paper thin budget and can't afford my area's pricey seamstresses/tailor $40 a pair !!!!!!!! to take in thighs seriously uh I don't think so I'm super desperate, I am ready to just do it and hope for the best but I figured I'd ask the gurus on here first Please help lol Thanks in advance

7  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Girl's Athena Goddess Of Wisdom & War Costume based on Barbie Doll (img hvy) on: July 16, 2011 09:46:16 AM
My lovely Daughters always keep me n my toes with crafty stuff they never ask for say a Ghost Costume or something simple they always go extravagant last year was Marie Antoinette / Cinderella from the movie Ever After/ And Scarlett O' Hara. This year my eldest wanted to be Athena Goddess Of Wisdom & War based on the collector barbie released last year (I will post a pic) Definitely not a traditional Greek Goddess by any means. But I admit I love that they want unique & one of a kind costumes.

I made this costume for my 7 year old after we watched Cleopatra with Liz Taylor whom she is named after and she begged to be Cleopatra ala Liz Taylor i used the simplicity pattern 2329 and added a few of my own touches etc. like substituting lame ;P for faux silk & a fabulous white heavyweight cotton with a sheen to it seemed less tacky more Taylor lol

always a drama queen lol
10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / My Best Diaper Cakes yet (yes I said cakes :) on: July 15, 2011 10:34:24 PM
So whats super ironic is I posted one of my other diaper cakes on craftster a few years back, why is this ironic you say well that cake was made for the same sister I made these for only her style has changed drastically granted she is having her first girl Cheesy so that may have something to do with it but n e ways Theses are my favorite cakes yet I have made 7 :O lol But these are by far my best after seven I have got this down to a science lol I used only one regular package of size 2 target diapers (my sister's fave) to make all 3 cakes.

- 1 pack size 2 diapers(everyone gets size 1 or NB but mom always waits a month or two before accepting that she has to take it apart eventually and that seems to always be about size 2 time Wink

- 1 roll of tape my fave is the cheapest shiny scotch type tape at Walmart it just holds onto the diapers better

- lots of fab decor ribbons & bows Smiley

cake a- on my up-cycled dessert plates (see thread)
Martha Stewart ribbon tape (Michaels clearance $2)
bronze sheer ribbon (hobby lobby $2 for a roll)
