2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / A Big and Tall corset for good home on: June 04, 2009 01:58:02 PM
I have this Tudor style corset in plain steel gray drill that just needs the bias binding put on it ..
Ive lost weight ...lots of weight  and I made it too "tall"

If there is a  5ft6+  size 26+ women out there who wants a steel boned Tudor corset all ready for embellishment and wants to swap ...contact me

It was going to be part of a steampunk outfit...with cogs painted on it...ah well
3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Clothing Adoption Swap on: May 31, 2009 09:46:54 PM
I have never organized a swap and I would be happy to help someone with experience in swaps ....

I have this idea ...
I have way too many clothes ....some I've have hoarded to mod or alter,some are half made, some Ive just hoarded cos ...well they are really neat clothes
I was thinking about a swap where I could send out my beloved items to new loving homes where they have a rich new lives filled with fun and adventure..will they be mod-ed or will they be taken clubbing that very night! Oh the excitement!
Ideally a swap where folks could sign up ..send off a package  and receive a genre themed/style pack surprise of "new" clothes..to alter,embellish or wear as is !
 Sizes and Styles would be needed as well as the normal swap stuff

 I have this great stash of size 20-26 clothes ....someone want a steam punk parcel or a hippy package ?

4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Should I alter this new dress ? on: February 26, 2009 03:59:31 PM
I have a new shirred top strapless summer dress its rather cute(all swiss dot cotton and insert lace) ....but I really cant seem to find a good strapless bra..
My husband thinks I should put straps on it it and give up my search for and push up strapless bra ...
What do you guys thinks ?


this is basically it ...mine is just white cotton
5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Summer clothing panic on: February 04, 2009 04:57:12 PM
Summer is looming large in my mind as the days get warmer
Anyone got some good quick pattern/clothing ideas to share as I try
to cope with summer will having some style (mumus are not pretty)
so far Im going for skirts and peasant blouses 
Anyone got more idea ? links to their esty stores ? pattern suggestions ? a classic princess line shell pattern?
I survived last summer in shorts and tank tops ...not at all my style  but it was short noticed (I had no idea how hot LA was then) this year I want to be pretty and struggling in the heat ..
6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / How can I showcase this amazing fabric ??? on: January 13, 2009 10:18:57 PM
I have the most stunning fabric of all time... 2yards of glory
I am smitten
However the only thing I can imagine creating out of this is a skirt  an long A-line but I have this fear that my idea for a basic A-line is due to cowardice  and not going to do the fabric justice...
Ideas? suggestions?
Oh and my body type is short and round Thats  me in the gothic patchwork skirt post made by imwoman13 in the completed projects curvaceous section
7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Scorch marks! on: October 29, 2008 09:14:15 PM

8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / First Blood on: October 23, 2008 12:34:51 PM
its been 3 years but now my Jernome 6019 has tasted blood ..behold it's warrior soul!!
I dont know how but I sewed my pinkie ...the nail tore off as I yanked my finger back but I have 3 wee holes on the other side where the needle went right through the fore mentioned finger YAY! missing all the bone
Its numb now I may have lost some nerves ...
It hurt rather a lot the really strange thing was  I was really cross yelling at my family I gues the old flight or fight instinct camr out as fight (I had such an urge to slap my wonderful husband!?!)  and I didn't cry much to my daughter's amazement she thinks I'm soooo tough now Smiley
but important thing is my machine is okay (I just hope it doesnt tell the serger how I taste) and once the broken needle was replace it ran fine 
I hope it leaves a good scar so when Im a grandma I can tell kids about sewing my pinkie !
9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / I like crewl! on: October 11, 2008 11:52:11 PM
I love the 1970s versions of crewl patterns taken from the Jacobean era
this is a pattern I tried out when I was on holiday but as I only had 4 skeins of wool with me it looks a bit odd as I just used normal embroidery thread in some parts

I think its okay but the the back stitch fawn looks odd ...live and learn
I should have brought more wool but I was a little broke ...now Im lots broke and still only got 4 skeins Tongue (curse my need for esty skirts,  ss patterns and books) on a brighter note I seem to be coping with image posting
10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Russian dolls on: October 11, 2008 11:35:41 PM
I lurk; I comment; but I dont post much due to a crappy camera and an utter failure to understand the posting instructions but since this is my fav board (sorry curvy  clothing)I am going to try
I had stitchery block a while back but in the end I went with nesting dolls to perk up a pair of thrift store pants for work 

I dont like how the middle line came out but when Im wearing them its hard to tell it looks sloppy
I found the pattern on a woodwork site and did different faces for them all also I took some wrinkles off the Mama .....she looked drained and haggard now she just sleep depp'ed  like the rest of us
