WHO would pay 200 for that? i usually throw thing together, so this might sound shaky. i would get about three yards of the main color, and cut off a section widthwise. hazzardly wrap it around your waist, pin, take it off and sew it. take the rest of the material, gather it, and sew it to the waistband. add lace to the bottom. you could throw a zipper in there.

this is a marker-on-printer-paper lame-ass tutorial i did in three minutes, and it probably doesn't make sense, but here's my take on that "karin skirt" by my rebe:



ok, to explain what my tutorial left out:

1) cut two wasitband/yoke peices, gather them at the sides
2) install a zipper
3) hem top edge of yoke. bleh. whatever i don't know how
4) cut a wonky shaped true skirt. i don't know if the triangle would be taken from just the yoke, or the true skirt too. it's hard to tell from a picture. just do whatever.
5) gather top edge of "true skirt" (this is the largest piece)
6) attach the gathered "true skirt" to the waistabnd/yoke bottom edge.
7) cut those weird "false skirt" pieces. the second layer one looks like it's triangular shaped. basically, the missing piece of the wonky hemline of the true skirt. the other is probably a real rectangle.
Cool do yourself a favor and attach the lace in such a way, that you are actually hemming the false skirts too. trust me, it works. just think about it.
9) before you attack the lace for the true skirt, you have to fiddle and attach the false skirts and the lace at the same time. ok, that makes no sense. again, it's like attaching the lace and hemming at the same time, only there is three layers.
10) look at your knock-off skirt, and wonder why you followed this tutorial that some 19 year old who is always cussing at her own sewing skills made in three minutes before heading off to work.

 Roll Eyes gee, maybe i should have tried to amek a mini-mock up of this first.

 Shocked oh! yeh, make a mini mock up first. make it like, american girl-doll sized. that's how i learned to screw up--err sew-- my own clothes from wonky patterns i made myself.

show my pictures if you try to follow this.  Grin

So who wants to help me?

p 209 of Teen Vogue: patchwork dress(#27 i believe). the shape is like this: http://store.nordstrom.com/product/product.asp?styleid=2847492&category=2378467~2378483~2377032&PrevStyleID=2831564&NextStyleID=2852116
but the rest of the dress is less swing-y.

the material is patchwork, kind of like a quilt. should i sew pieces together? i think this might be too bunchy, but i'm not sure.

***PLEASE HELP ME!!!***
thank you thank you thank you!! you are the exact type of person i've been looking for!

you might think this is super-easy and that anyone could do it, but im not good at making my own patterns so i'm hoping you'd be kind enough to help me out!

i want to make a metallic hobo bag. please search the craftster forum for "metallic hobo" and you will see a post by mingaling for a "HOT metallic hobo". (there's only a couple posts under that search). I want a pattern just like her's...she posted a tut. but nothing about the pattern.

if you could make me a pattern i'd GREATLY appreciate it!!
thnks so much   Cheesy

I'm trying to draft out this pattern, because I detest vogue patterns.

as of now, it's pretty slow going.

http://store.sewingtoday.com/cgi-bin/voguepatterns/shop.cgi?s.item.V8020=x&TI=20009&page=1

Edit:: Whew, question.

The whole dress is kind of a line. How do I continue that with the pleats?

It's almost like a really big circle skirt with pleats.

I have been looking all over for either a pattern or instructions for making a ballet top/blouse. I dont have a picture but most people know what I am talking about. (capped sleeves and or boat neck) I am tall so I need shirts that are long, like reaching down to my hips..
any help...
also I was wondering how you would reconstruct it from an existing shirt...
one or the other would help, I am clueless.

lol-lol : A few questions (random order, I think after I type generally)
1. Do you want it stretchy or fitted like a corset?
2. If possible can you post a larger picture or put on the annotation on computer to make it a little easier to read.
3. Is the top and skirt connected?
4. Is there significance to the zigzag across the top of the skirt piece?
5. On the shoulder bit, are the triangle/teardrop shaped bits creases or applique or holes?

I may be able to help a little if these question are answered. Whatever you come up with pattern wise, I suggest a mock up of cheap material first. I think the skirt piece may be a different shape at the bottom to what you have sketched, more sort of bloated at the end to create the train.

btw. love the design, especially with the top hat Smiley

I actually have that pattern (although I didn't make that view). Its basically a LONG bodice that hits at the hip, and then you attach nice deep pleats to the circumference of the bodice bottom. Hope that helps.
