You know, I thought the pattern looked ugly in the original photo (why the straps? why?), but yours is GORGEOUS.
22  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Re: EDITED to: my problems with Violet Beauregard on: July 06, 2006 02:28:16 PM
Yeah, i figured given it was crochet I'd have to do a lining anyway. I've got a pale yellow slip I had to make in home ec in high school, I may very well put that underneath it or something.

But still, I DID drop down four hooks before I got the gauge- I'm using a C- and it's still holey all over. What the heck? I can't even get smaller than a B hook in this town anyway.

Meh, I give up on nitpicking even smaller than that, I'll just do a lining.

I think it is bizarre that I have to go SO SMALL to even hit gauge on this!

Bumping because I have the same problem as the OP- doing it with an F hook comes out too big.

I'm not at all successful with anything I've tried out of this book so far. I had the same problem with Prepster and gave the hell up on that. How tiny of a hook do I have to get here?! A C hook? Smaller? An A hook?
24  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / The back's too small, what do I do? How to fudge the back of a dress on: May 24, 2006 03:59:44 PM
In two weeks, I have a "Bad Prom" party to go to. I found a suitable (i.e. bridesmaid's nightmare/80's dream) dress at the thrift store, but it doesn't zip all of the way up the back. I bought it anyway.

Now, given the looseness/cheesiness of the whole thing, I got the idea to fill in the back with some extra fabric. Namely, I found a high school T-shirt that I thought I could put behind it. Like, cut a triangle piece and attach it to the dress somehow.

But I'm not sure how to attach the new fabric to the dress in such a way to (a) keep things closed/attached, while (b) still allowing me to zip up the dress as far as it will go and be able to get into it. Alas, I'm going to have to dress myself for the event (probably in a bathroom stall, 'cause it's RIGHT after work) without help, so whatever mechanism I use has to be something I can close myself. (Luckily, I have flexible arms.)

Anyone have any suggestions? It doesn't have to look particularly nice or good, just something that I can take care of by myself and have hold up for 2 hours.

Here is a crappy little Paint drawing I did of the problem, if that helps you any.
25  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Duct Tape Dresses- how? on: May 24, 2006 03:51:13 PM
A couple of questions:

(a) How do you make the skirts? Just make flat fabric and cut patterns? Tape it together?

(b) How do you get in and out of them? Tape yourself in and cut, or something else?

I was looking at pictures of such today, and then kept trying to figure out how they did it.

Is anybody else actually trying to make the jacket? I've started one, but I somehow don't think it looks right.

I'm making it. At the moment it looks like this:



I don't think the shoulder looks right on the completed front bit, but hey ho.  I'll find out when I sew it up.

Damn. Mine looks TOTALLY WRONG compared to that. The top just gets wider and wider and wider on me...I might as well just scrap it now, because it's so triangular.

Sad

Yeah... I want to do another Tubey sweater. Yeah, I'm already about to finish my first one, but (a) it's a project I think I can actually FINISH in 16 days, (b) already have the yarn and want to do another one, and my other projects on the wish list will take months, and (c) I plan on changing things up a bit in the fit depending on how the first sweater comes out. I already know I want to make the sleeves smaller next time, so that'll be nitpicky for me.
