question/problem- i made my circle skirt so the middle circle was the same measurement as my waist and then when i sewed it all together (band, straps, and skirt) i couldn't really put it on b/c the thread would break and did not allow the waist part to stretch as i had planned.  so any ideas or corrections i could do so i could actually put the dress on would be helpful! thanks

ALWAYS use zigzag stitch on knits/ stretcable garments...

Quick question: what width of fabric did you use for your straps? and did you taper them? they look a little narrower at the ends

Thank you! x

 kinkyknit  I used 9" straps.  measure b/w ur boobies, over them, and all the way to your arm pits.  I recommend 2-way stretch so you won't have to mess with darts, zippers, etc.

glitter is the herpes of crafts. once it gets on you, it never goes away!

I've got a kind of girlyish question:
:cough: uuh. chest support?
I guess the thickness of the fabric sort of depends on the level of support, but I'm not seeing wearing a bra with one of these dresses..I was kind of wondering about that...

and remember that [depth] is the greatest of *heights*

eta: um... maybe this view is less flattering than rostitchery's: http://lydiasilvestry.com/index.php?action=website-view&WebSiteID=262&WebPageID=6202
hee hee.

I have to agree - a bad hair situation is not solved by wrapping your dress around it...

I'm down w/ a personal swap now and then!  PM me!

ok so here's me modeling my dress in the band room after a long school day.  i wore a cami underneath and did the more modest shoulder covering tie so it would be school appropriate.  It also fit that days theme of school color purple and gold!! i want to  make another in a different color, but i have trouble finding fabric.

Looks great, Mento!
This is the rostittchery version, and not the Lydia Silvestry version, right?

Love the color on you...so rich!
