Re: Steamerella bustle dress

oh right! yes it was a kind of pale steel blue with an orange / orange yellow shot poly silk. It's really groovy fabric actually. We got a great deal on it. I should have bought some myself!

Re: Insert on TV 401

Steamerella bustle dress

Here is the steamerella outfit (the fabrics reminded me of disney's Cinderella) my friend and I made. My friend got a sewing machine for a present but she didn't know how to use it. We made the underskirt together and it was the first clothing item she had ever sewn. She got excited and did the over...

Re: TV401 Fit

Your blouse looks really nice! I'm using this blouse to finish something I've already started although I wonder if the quilting cotton I was going to use will be too heavy.

Re: Anything Titanic Anniversary themed in Atlanta this Spring?

As a matter of fact I was at a party last night and someone told me there was something happening but she couldn't remember the details. I'll try to chase it down and report back.

Steamfest is in April and anachrocon is in late feb. for Steampunk events.

Re: WITHOUT A CORSET?

Does she have a natural hourglass? If so going without a corset might not be terrible as long as she had a really supportive bra. Still, I agree with everyone else that it's a bad idea.

Heather,

I have similar problems as Madamekat. I don't exactly know where the points you mentioned are. Would you please describe the fixes in more detail?

Re: TV 462/428 hybrid for a Steampunk Party

That outfit and you look totally adorable. I have often thought about the shorter bustled skirt but I always wondered if it really would look OK. Now I'm determined to try it.

Re: Red and Black dresses

Yes yes, pre-ruched! It was drapery fabric on sale for $5 a yard. I got it in a greenish gold too. I'm not quite insane enough to do that all myself.
