    ReplyDelete
  32. I have stumbled hundreds of pages and never left a comment. Not one. But I have to say to the designer, I don't know if that is you modeling your clothes or a model, but whoever she is looks very very sick. I say this with compassion, not judgement. Please seek treatment.

    ReplyDelete
  33. You mention in your grommet posts a trim at the fabric store that's leather with grommets, This does not stand up to any kind of pulling! I used it, thinking it would be a lot easier than individually grommeting the lace up sides of a Halloween costume and when I put even a little pressure on the laces, the grommets fell out of the leather and the holes left behind stretched and tore.

  69. You inspried me to rummage through my local Goodwill! I found a long wool mini houndstooth 80's dress (Brooks Brothers, $3) that I will convert into a fitted sheath. I found a black and ivory shirt, cut off the sleeves and made a fitted tank tunic. I turned one of my husband's logo t-shirts into a mini skirt by cutting off the sleeves, cutting across the top just under the neckline, sewing side seams to fit me comfortably, folding over the top to create a casing for 1.5" wide elastic (Wal-Mart $1.75), and finishing at the right length with a 1-inch machine hem. It is by far the cutest and most comfortable skirt I have (and the gun shop graphic adds an edgy twist--"guns on the buns", as my son says). Thank you for the beautiful work and photos and great ideas!
