    thethreadmage added the project Coffee Date SHIRT!!!
    Img_0002_2__listing

    thethreadmage added the project American Civil War Petticoat w/ Attached Underskirt
    D08b6c8da42a4984f643a981c702cf9606ee3710_listing

    I decided to take quite a few shortcuts for the sake of comfort. First, there are no hoops in this “hoopskirt.” Instead, I used standard crinoline because I hate trying to sit in a hoop and they …

    This started out as a plain rubber jacket that I bought in Atlanta for $14 in 1998. Since then, it has taken many forms and this is the final. I am nearly 25 years old, and I can’t justify dressi…

    Also, in the photos I am wearing a pettic…

    thethreadmage added the project Coffee Date Dress - Make it a Double
    6c2e0bde3e1028e03d79aecbdc7ada3efc65b44a_listing

    I made the skirt fuller by cutting each skirt piece twice and pleating to the waist everywhere but the front. Also, I left the darts open so that I can wear it before I get around to buying a zipp…

    Crazydress2_listing

    I needed to drastically alter the darts to accommodate my big tits, but other than that this fit perfectly. So shocked, I was! NO COMPLAINTS! Also, I have made this dress in various forms 8 time…
