1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    A PS made of cream or burgundy silk will be a good option too.

    I understand what you mean. Not my colours, though.

    Superb. Simply superb. Easily my favourite thread on the board at the moment.

    Makes me (almost) want to have children. Then common sense kicks in. But still, these pics make it more tempting than I would have thought possible! [​IMG]


    I'll just echo what others have already said: pretty awesome thread! I know I may be pushing it here, but any chance you can post a pic of your lady in the final product?

    Thank you, Lonneker. I´ll let her decide when she is eighteen.

    Fair enough; understood.

    Desalniettemin: prachtig verslag. Ik hoop dat zij er net zo blij mee is als al die kerels hier...

    one of the best threads on the forum


    if I may add, for that Polo, you might consider adding some of that pink liner along the bottom inside across the hem and side breaks. I find the inside bottom hem, especially the back takes a lot of wear and tear and it can also be used to reinforce the side "splits".

    Nice one NOBD (or Mrs NOBD..?!) – I admire your approach and love these mini photo-essays. Keep them coming!

    He's very lucky that Mrs. NOBD is that cooperative. I suggested it to Mrs. AJ and she said that she will rather pay for the PS than spend her 2 weekly off sewing PS.

    This one was done in half an hour, I think. But I see what you (or rather she) mean(s).

    Just found this thread and I have to say that your work is truly amazing [​IMG]

    Is all the fabrics from old clothes or do you buy some too?

    Not really my work, but thank you.

    No, not everything is from old clothes. We've bought some and have been donated some (shirt fabrics) as well.

    Second Life for a Shirt


    Nice shirt, but unfortunately worn-out (about seven years old). The colours are
    still quite vibrant after wearing and washing it many, many times, but the collar...

    This I can do myself:

    The parts

    fronts - back

    sleeve - collar/cuffs

    I was curious about the lining:

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    No fusing. The lining"”feel free to correct me if I am not using the right term(s)"”is loose: sewn,
    not fused to the fabric. Same for the cuffs:

    Pattern on back:

    Pattern on sleeve; this pattern is repeated four times:

    The parts are cut, so now it's time to sew them together:

    The bottom part of the dress"”almost square. The shape will be created by pleats.
