Subject: Help please regarding white twinkle satin

Date Posted: Thursday, March 21, 05:38:26pm

I hope someone on this board will be able to help. The sleeves on my daughter's solo dress are made of white twinkle satin. The dress is always stored flat under her bed, and over time, the sleeve has developed a horizontal crease. I purchased a hand-held steamer, and my thought was to steam out the crease, and then, in the future, stuff the sleeves with paper towels or plain tissue to prevent it from happening in the future. But, I know some fabrics react differently to heat or steam. Do you think I'll be fine using the steamer? Anything I should consider (distance to keep steamer away from the fabric, etc.?). Many thanks for any advice you can give.

Subject: How to get the flare of an irish dress skirt correct

Date Posted: Wednesday, March 20, 06:15:14pm

Hi everyone,
Need some urgent help - PLEEEEASE. I have a dressmaker doing our first solo dress for my daughter, and while she is multi talented with ballet, ballroom, formalwear, pageant costumes etc etc making, she has not done an irish dress before. Of course the question came to me about the skirt, and my newbie answer was 'i don't know'. LOL. So, could anyone tell me does the skirt start to flare out at the waistline, the hip bone, or the hip itself. And also does the skirt have to come out at a particular angle ie 45 degrees or anything. Didn't know if there were certain rules about the angle they come out at, or whether it was up to you.
Thanks so much all.

I have a Toyota 9100 and I use a cheap animae software to design a dress that I save as a .jpeg to send to customers. I then draw the design on paper for the real size pattern, scan it into my computer, size it, import it into Forte, size it again, and use that image to digitize the design. I find the satin stitch in Forte to be incredibly tedious. I'm wondering if anyone has a 'better/faster' way to get to the digitized design?

I've got two solo dresses that are quite old and outdated now, one a green velvet made in 1997 or so and the other a black raw silk in 2001 or so. They're so outdated I don't think anyone would wear them to compete in, but I was wondering if anyone knew of dressmakers or other artists who might be interested in reusing the fabric or the embroidery and applique designs? I can get you pictures on request.
Thanks!

Just curious if anyone else has experienced this. After digitizing a design, making sure it was the proper "real life" size, when I put it in my machine it was about 2 inches bigger all over. Had digitized my first placement lines (I usually use the actual neckline) and for some strange reason the whole thing just went bigger than what was digitized. When I used the measurement tool to double check on the software those measurements were accurate and reflected my original sketch. Just stumped by this one. I'm re digitizing the whole design from scratch but just wondered if anyone has had a similar issue when using the V6 software with a large machine?

Thanks in advance for any input :)

Then we would need to charge for the cost of the rhinestones. Or, would you charge a flat fee based on light to fully embellished costume? Again, what do you feel would be fair?

However I'm really hoping to have a go at making a proper solo dress. I borrowed a sewing machine which was pretty basic, I do want to invest in a decent machine but I'm not sure what's best. Could someone please give me a bit of a list of the basics required to start making Irish dance dresses? This would be an amazing help, any tips would be greatly appreciated. Three dancing daughters = a desperate need to start making my own dresses!!! Many thanks

I'm helping a teen see her first solo dress, just advising her a bit. I haven't made a dress since four-panels so soft skirts are not in my experience. She wants a single layer soft skirt (skater skirt?). From what I've seen in my research, we're layering a skirt over a stiffened framework. I'm having her do a skirt by gathering basically a 12 inch ruffle to a yoke.

She is 15 and about 5.4, average build.

How many yards of fabric should she have for her skirt? Estimates?

What sorts of factors would make this more or less feasible? Any rough estimates for how much it could cost? Would it make more sense to just get a new dress?

I know this is a little off-topic, but every year I watch White Christmas with Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney, I say to myself "I gotta have that black dress." (You know the one from the Carousel Club scene.)

I have pulled all my vinatge mermaid dress patterns and found some black silk velvet in my stash. Do you suppose that there is a wire that supports the shaped neckline or just interfacing? I would also guess that the zipper is in a side seam and there is tulle or something that supports the bottom of the skirt.

Thanks and Happy New Year to all!

Does anyone happen to have an idea on how one might get the elastic bungee thread back thru the net hem on the bun wigs?
I have tried several options that would normally work on other items, but the netting is making it quit difficult. It is a brand new bun, only worn a few times. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
