Ok. What size is the dress?

How much of the blouse and swim wear would you say is white?
Re: Madlady I Need U!!!!!!!!!!!!! by platinumnk(f): 7:18pm On Apr 26, 2010
The Dress And Blouses Range from
S- XL one size of each

Same as Dress and Swimsuit


The Dress will have roughly the same amount of green/white

The Blouse, will just have the front, the back is open with bold back black (or white) straps.

It will have one white stripe down the middle with green on the sides.


The swimsuit will have more green, and white for center.
Re: Madlady I Need U!!!!!!!!!!!!! by madlady(f): 7:35pm On Apr 26, 2010
Do not give yourself a headache wink.

Dress, 1 1/2 yards of each colour ( I would buy 2 yards of each colour).

Blouse, 1 yard of each colour ,  OK  I SEE, THE BLOUSE DOES NOT HAVE A BACK, SO LESS FABRIC NEEDED wink

Swimwear 1 yard of white  and 3 yards of green (I would buy 2 yards of white and 3 yards of green)


READ THIS CAREFULLY, YOU ARE ONLY MAKING 1 SAMPLE OF EACH,IS THIS CORRECT?

@Poster, Sorry I forgot to answer your question about lining for the  bikini/tankini.


    You should line a part of the bottoms, you may also need to put a thin lining in the bust section undecided

    I will post a few pictures, tell me which your design most resembles.

I will post a few pictures, tell me which your design most resembles.

The bikini is mostly like the top of the first one and the bottom of the second.
the tankini looks similar.

I talked to my seamstress and I got good and bad news tongue

She started moving this weekend, and So wont be availble this weekend, so I will be driving to see her next weekend, but that gives me time to send all the fabric to her first.

She agreed to your stats about the fabric! I am going to order a lil bit more just in case,
She also said I needed matching thread and invisible thread.

I am so anxious to get my samples, they should be here tommorow. embarassed

Thanks a lot love kiss

Where can I get the lining?
Re: Madlady I Need U!!!!!!!!!!!!! by madlady(f): 8:44pm On Apr 27, 2010
^^^That's good for you, with regards to when you will see your dressmaker.

        You will be able to get all your threads and lining  from same fabric suppliers.

        OK looks like you are ready and set to go.

       

       I wish you all the best with your new line, you will have to showcase it on NL smiley smiley

     
       I am off to JA in a few days so if you get stuck before then just shout me.
Re: Madlady I Need U!!!!!!!!!!!!! by platinumnk(f): 8:49pm On Apr 27, 2010

Is there someehere else where I can get it cheaper?
Re: Madlady I Need U!!!!!!!!!!!!! by madlady(f): 8:59pm On Apr 27, 2010

Re: Madlady I Need U!!!!!!!!!!!!! by platinumnk(f): 9:40pm On Apr 27, 2010

This is the Color I need and white.

I wanted to get it from them, but omg they over charge for their swatches which is a major turnoff, i might just try browsing through some fabric stores here. . embarassed

Re: Madlady I Need U!!!!!!!!!!!!! by platinumnk(f): 5:43pm On Apr 28, 2010
I dont know where A.mama dissapeared to embarassed

Well I hit a couple of road blocks embarassed


I got the samples today from Spandex World and I love their Green swimsuit fabric

But I hated their Polyester/Spandex Blend! All their greens are so blah sad
Dull. I wasnt looking for somthing shiny but their green looks washed out.

I might have to look into a Cotton/Spandex Blend cry

Or I might just be paranoid embarassed
Im going to go home and compare to greens i like and ifI cant find anything Ill order it tonight, because I dont have time to waste.

I saw the other link, thanks kiss kiss So Silk is generally that much cheesy

Re: Madlady I Need U!!!!!!!!!!!!! by madlady(f): 5:52pm On Apr 28, 2010
^^I can sense your stress.

     Yes lots of the polyester fabrics can look a bit blah.I never use them embarassed

     Can you order the cotton/spandex sample now, do that.

     Compare them, then pick the best.

     Yes silk IS far more expensive, but much better.

     


     DO YOU WANT ME TO SOURCE A POLYESTER SILK ?
Re: Madlady I Need U!!!!!!!!!!!!! by platinumnk(f): 6:21pm On Apr 28, 2010
madlady:

Yes lots of the polyester fabrics can look a bit blah.I never use them embarassed
I dont know why mine look blah cry cry My Sister have tons of polyester maxi dresses and the colors are cool embarassed embarassed

Yes I will order a cotton sample from the websites you posted, Hopefully I will get someting by friday, im also going to check the fabric stores around here, you think that a good idea?

Someone told me there is a fabric called Silk Jersey, kinda like cotton but light. But I know its expensive lol one website had it 32 per YARD . . jeeezzz cry cry cry cry

thanks a lot! , bring me a souvenir! cheesy
Re: Madlady I Need U!!!!!!!!!!!!! by madlady(f): 6:31pm On Apr 28, 2010
^^  Silk Jersey is WONDERFUL.

       That green looks ok, remember you will be mixing it with alot of white.


       Your sister's maxi are a mix of colours, I should think.

       Check the other stores
     
       The colour of the swimwear fabric looks very  strong so that's fine.
Re: Madlady I Need U!!!!!!!!!!!!! by platinumnk(f): 6:39pm On Apr 28, 2010
Yeah, I think the beauty of the swimsuit fabric samples I got set me up, Again I will look at it hard again,

sad

I think Im paranoid, but the swimsuit look it was painted with color, while the polyester blend look like it was washed a couple of times embarassed

yes her maxis are print fabrics, a mixture of a lot of colors.
