Effie Trinket at the reaping from The Hunger Games

I reproduced the look of Effie Trinket in the reaping scene of The Hunger Games.  Everything is made by me with the exeception of the flowers at the neckline which are pre-made and the sock, shoes...

Re: White Patchwork Flowergirl Dress

It is beautiful.

Re: Halloween Costume Contest 2012 - Official Rules

And what does infringing on the rights of a third party mean? Though I am not doing that this year, one year I dressed up as Xena, would that be infringing on the rights of the writers of the TV show? I guess, I am asking if one makes a costume such as something one would see at Dragon-Con or the like which is inspired by a character in a film or show, would that be disqualified?

Re: Project Runway Episode 6: "Fix My Friend!"

Gunnar started out being the jerk I disliked, but the way he dealt with his client was so wonderful. Ven is an insensitive jerk, and he ain't no ideal body either. I can't believe how he made that woman feel. I hope some really famous designer sees this show and volunteers to custom design a wardrobe for this lady and make her fabulous. She didn't ask to be humiliated on national television.

Re: BOOK GIVEAWAY: A Field Guide to Fabric Design

I would like to include a piece in each outfit I created for myself, whether visible, or just known to myself in an interior finish as my special secret.

Re: DVD GIVEAWAY: Industry Insider Techniques with Louise Cutting Volumes 1-4

I love these videos, each time I start a project I go to the site to see if there are any tips I can incorporate.

Re: Project Runway 9: Come As You Are

It is a joke to have someone who can't sew on a show that requires sewing! I guess beauty helps. And the gushing over Anya's pants makes me think they must be smoking something, they were awful.

And I don't buy her story either, something is very fishy. Ditto the general dislike of Kors and Garcia. Kors couldn't win Project Runway.

Re: From Botch Job to Beautiful in an Afternoon!

Don't think it was really necessary to point out the sloppy tack-down in the lining that didn't effect fit at all. To many, and I don't think this is unjustified, there is no reason to make pretty stitches that don't show on the outside as long as they serve their purpose. All that did is make me feel pretty crappy about my own stitches that may be unseen from the outside.

Re: Installing the Front Band to the Fantasy Fur Jacket

Wow, my typing is atrocious,

correction to post

"bring others down" not done

And insert a "not" so that the final sentence reads "not interested"

Re: Installing the Front Band to the Fantasy Fur Jacket

Why do people bother to bring others done by saying they are not interested? Then move along, there is something for everyone. How selfish do you have to be to think you just HAVE to tell everyone that YOU are interested.

Re: Leather Lacing for Fantasy Fur Jacket

I am loving it. I have some extra kaphalon hair from when I get my weaves, and am itching to try something like this. I am thinking maybe a shrug though. You are giving me great ideas. I wish I had you as a personal tutor!!!

Re: Book Giveaway: "Horrockses Fashions: Off-the-Peg Style in the '40s and '50s"

Wow, this would be a wonderful book to have.
