    ichigogirl commented on the forum topic London fabric stores

    Hi all who know good fabric stores in London (and other cities). Please send info on them to David at Burdastyle, so he can put them all on the resource map! Then us outsiders won’t have to search …

    ichigogirl commented on the project Fake faggoted dress

    Lily, it’s lovely! The pintucking looks perfect, and the fake fagotting looks perfectly real, at least very very nice!
    And I agree with the “as fast as possible”-strategy, I’m in the same kind of p…

    ichigogirl commented on the article Comment to Win a Kanzashi Flower Maker from Clover!

    Though I love love love so many flowers (after all I did choose to work as a landscape architect, special area of interest plants…) my favourite flowers would have to be freesias.
    I love the deli…

    ichigogirl commented on the project Baby Blue, denim shorts

    Thank you! I must have found like the perfect angle for these pictures, I really don’t recognise my own legs, they’re actually shorter and stubbier in reality (or is the camera a more true eye than…

    ichigogirl commented on the project Yoga Top v2

    Yes, I agree, this could easily be used for swim-wear. It doesn’t show in the pictures, but my fabric is a bit different, it’s made for sportswear, I’d choose a shinier lycra for a bikini but other…

    Thank you! I do too. And I love to get thorougly warm once in a while, especially in this climate. It’s like a mini holiday to the tropics… :-)

    ichigogirl commented on the project Yoga Top v2

    Thanks! I opted for the “monkey”-pose (or spider maybe?) ;-). And the best thing about the internet is that one can choose what pictures to post (i.e. not the ones with a poofy belly, hehe).

    Thanks! I think it could be really useful for bikini-tops too, btw, check out the top-page at Shakti activewear, they have loads of different inventive ways of strapping tops, great inspiration!

    ichigogirl commented on the project trash to flash

    Oh my gosh, you’re productive!
    I love this. In my eyes it’s silk though :-). My favourites are pic 1, 3 and 4, ie either loose or tucked in. Very versatile, and elegant!

    Love it, it looks comfortable and at the same time like you could dress it up and/or down as you like.
    I’d like one myself!

    Img_6448_listing

    I always seem to lack shorts, and I tend not to buy any since I feel uncomfortable (self conscious) in most of them. A couple of years ago I found a pair that I really like though, a sample pair fr…

    Dreamy! So, so pretty.
    One question though: where did you get the fabric? I’ve never before seen fabric designed for circle-skirts!

    ichigogirl commented on the forum topic Trying to upsize/downsize the same dress.

    At least in this dress, the hip-measurement isn’t very important. And it should be possible to use the bust part for size 14, and the waist part for size 18 (compare your own measurements under the…

    Img_6324_listing

    Well I needed a new yoga-top since the one I made pulls my neck too much (it’s a halter-neck), not good since I’m an OL (office-lady) during the days which results in a tense neck and back. No extr…

    Gorgeous dress, and thanks for posting a picture of the pattern envelope, always interesting to see it when the pattern is vintage. It suits you perfectly!

    ichigogirl commented on the article Silk Lining for a Couture Finish

    I wash my silks in the washing machine, on the wool cycle with liquid Savon de Marseille (sold as a shower cream/soap), it works beautifully! Some types shouldn’t be washed in water, so I avoid the…

    I LOVE silk! Love it, love it, love it. The touch to the hand, the smell of it, the sensation of silk on my skin. The lightness, coolness and warmth that it gives you.
    I’m also very glad that silk…

    Silk IS a natural fibre, and it makes a considerably smaller impact on earth than most other fibres (from what I’ve heard. Hemp, linen and wool excepted). Less pesticides, less emission during the …

    Ah, I love it, very nice! I agree about the exposed zipper, it works great.
    And I’ve got the pattern… thanks for bringing it back to my memory!
