Free Patterns - Your Style Rocks
Design by rma / Pattern by Your Style Rocks! This is the pattern for the 1950s inspired dress that rma designed for our "Past Perfect" contest. It can be worn with a petticoat or you can just leave it away if you prefer a more floaty look for your skirt. We made our own embellishment for the top but of course you can use something off-the-shelf as well. Ours is detachable, so we can always decide whether we're in the mood for some extra attention or not! :-) Please consult our size comparison table, our table of body measurements and the "Patterns" section of our FAQs before you download and print a pattern. Detailed sewing instructions for this pattern are available here. Download the pattern:

Men's Shirt to Smocked Halterneck TUTORIAL! Well I said I had managed to fit in a little sewing....and when I said little I mean little! This was such an easy top to make that I thought it would be fun to make a little tutorial. 1. Take one large men's shirt (I got this nice pink and white striped one from a local charity shop for the tidy sum of £3.50 because my boyfriend wasn't parting with any of his current shirts - the cheek!) and cut straight across the body below the base of the sleeves. 2. 3. 4. Top tip - if you have a button in the area you want to smock, unpick it so that you can easily sew over this area and then sew it on again at the end. For an excellent tutorial for shirring check out Grosgrain 5. 6. As I said, so quick and easy. I think this would also make a very sweet dress for a little girl! P.S.

Little Red Infinity Dress Tutorial *Tutorial made by Melissa @ Sew Like My Mom for her win during the Red Week challenge.* I made this little dress in about 3 hours and for under $20! I used some soft polyester knit I found at Hancock Fabrics for $4.99/yard. I got 5 yards, and with my 40% off 1 cut of fabric coupon, my total came to $15.87 after tax!! I found these dresses on Craftster years ago and have always loved them. First, you need to do some measuring. So, 30/6.28 = 4.7. Then I decided on length of skirt and came up with 18″. To make your straps, you need to decide how wide to make them. To determine strap length, you need to make them 1.5 times your height. So, got that? To make your pattern, get packing paper, freezer paper, or a bunch of pieces of computer paper taped together. Then I measured 18″ down from that and made another line for my skirt length. Cut out on your lines. Now, keeping your fabric folded in half with selvages matched, fold the fabric in from the end so it’s doubled on itself.

How To Get Rid Of Roaches: Testing 8 Odd Ways Sometimes, no matter how clean you keep your house, you can still have a roach problem. And when an exterminator delays an appointment, you become desperate for ways to get rid of roaches. Here are a few common methods that work...and a few commonly-suggested methods that don't work. Admitting that you have a roach problem is on par with admitting that you have an embarrassing rash. Immediately, I called an exterminator. "Sorry, I'm booked until two weeks from now." "But I have roaches now," I pleaded. "Sorry," he said. Repeat this scene 8 times. The answer to that mystery wasn't as fun. "You on Green Street?" "Yeah, big problem on your block. First of all: Rats. The exterminator agreed to come in a week and a half, until then, I was on my own with my new roommates. "Just be sure not to smash 'em...if you do that, then others come out and eat the remainders." It took me two days to regain my appetite after that pearl of wisdom. Here's what worked...and what didn't: -Fabric softener + water mix.
