So, I will need to correct that when I make the final one. I also need to lower the top of the back 1.5 inches or so, so it doesn't stick up past my dress. I may try making the bottom of the back a bit longer to help off-set that. To the experienced corset people, will that do anything, or is that a stupid idea?BUT! I successfully made a corset that fit me! I'm happy, since this was my first attempt at making a real corset. I don't have any pics, but I'll try to get some of the final one.
Based on looking at that picture, here's what I think.Doesn't look like it would be too hard to remove the train. Unless there's some sort of embroidery or such on the back, they should just be able to hem it, I would think.What sort of lacing do you want? You could punch holes and add grommets. I don't think that would look very good, though. You should be able to add lacing rings and do it that way. Either of those options would be fairly easy, if you left the existing closure and added the lacing over it. If you wanted to remove the existing closure and/or use small loops of fabric to lace through (as is often done on fancy dresses), you would need to completely (or close enough to completely) re-work the bodice.
it says there is hand beaded trim on the hem line. but, I suppose I'll have to let that go anyway because I'm so short I know the whole thing will have to be hemmed a LOT, lol.
I've had a friend at work here ask if I can make her a hoodie which has a woman's shaping. The only sewing I do is really from patterns, but I can't find one that is specifically made for a woman. I have found :Simplicity 5362McCalls 5538McCalls 5252Does anyone happen to know a way to alter these slightly, or even if there is an existing pattern which is geared specifically toward women?Thanks!!
Well, I made this (cape and hat) for a present for somebody in my wife's moms' group:and I've been offered a commission to make two more for a pair of twin girls for next fall. I'm fairly stoked about the idea, but haven't made anything for money before, and am trying to figure out pricing and such. I know some of the folks around here do commission work, and I was hoping to get some input. How much to charge for my time? I still have the patterns I made, so that should save me a little time over the first one, which took me about five hours for the set, including making Patterson and a full mock-up of the hat. Do I have the lady supply all her own fabric and notions? If not, what about a materials mark up?Anyhow, any input would be appriciated.
