What sort of projects are welcome? Are you trying to focus on sewing?

Miss you! I will be at DO, you going? I emailed Greg and Tristan an asked if they need a DJ. I have been spinning live for play parties lately. Email them and tell them that they need me *g*

Hopefully, yes, I'll be at DO. I'm still waiting to find out. Either way, if y'all need a place to stay for a day or two on either side of it, or if you need a ride from the airport (should you be flying in), let me know and I'll see what we can do!

It'd be good to see you again, and chat a little!

We are driving and staying on site Thursday so we should be all set for rides and crash space. Thanks for offering!

My NYC plans got pushed back a week so the next one is going to be scheduled for 8-6-2006.

If was really great seeing you as well. The skirt really came out well.

I'm making a black and white striped underbust right now (every other panel is black and white.) I make the first and last panel 1/2 the width of the others so that the front and back stripe is the same width as the others.

Satin and alternating colors is a real pain in the ass. Every little mistake is amplified and changing thread and feet every few lines of stitches makes this project take forever. If I ever do it again it will be a premium.

yay for steampunk!

Looks like a ribbon corset to me. I'm sure that the directions are going to be really lacking since they way they drew it is only really good for someone with a large waist. If you have a small waist to large hip/chest then you are going to have to really futz wih the ribbons to lay right.

Since you have 10+ inches of difference you should try and make something as close to your corseted form as possible to drape the ribbons onto.
