Fabric Friday III

So it's time for another edition of fabric Friday! anyone else excited as I am? It's amazing how this weakness of mine (I'm an unapologetic fabricaholic) has generated so much interest - my mail box is filled with unending questions about sourcing and the like so all I can say for now is hang in there, hold your horses as I've got something special coming soon. *grin*
Here are my uploads -

Tube Top Tutorial With Fusible Bust Pad - I

 Hello you!
So for those of you who would be making wrapper blouses, skirt bLouses and the like, here's how you can apply fusible bust pads to your bust cups. If you are conversant with the nigerian blouses as seen on ladies wearing different asoebi styles, you would definitely come across blouses that make the blossom look absolutely wonderful! *clears throat*
As you can see, I've cut up by bust cups. Along with princess seams. You can go through my tube top and princess seam posts here and here
 Here, I'm using a lace fabric for ease of understanding.
You cut up your main fabric, your underlining (if you are using lace,you should have two sets of underlining as one set would be directly facing the lace and that is what people would see from the outside)

Tube Top Tutorial

Compliments of the season guys! Hope you're enjoying the holidays? Well, I can't really say that I am because I'm still working *sad face* Anyways, I'll skip all the talk and get right to the business of the day.
So today I'll be showing you how you can create a 'bust cup' for your tube dresses,tops, African wrapper blouses and so on! Note though, that you can also merge this technique with the same technique used in making Princess seams as seen here when you want to make dresses, blouses, etc.
For those of you who don't have  the slightest, of what I'm gibbering about, I'll show you a photo :-)
