Another important thing (if not the most important thing) to look for when choosing fabric for your clothing projects is the weight . Fabric weight means how thick/heavy a fabric is, and the weight you choose depends on what you are making and the feel you want for your garment. It's a personal choice, but it also has to be practical. The different weights can be referred to as top-weight, bottom-weight, very light, light, medium and heavy.  

Gabby came out purple and limp. Doctors stabilised her in the neonatal intensive care unit and then began a battery of tests. Within days the Williamses knew their new baby had lost the genetic lottery. Her brain s frontal lobe was smooth, lacking the folds and grooves that allow neurons to pack in tightly. Her optic nerve, which runs between the eyes and the brain, was atrophied, which would probably leave her blind. She had two heart defects. Her tiny fists couldn t be pried open. She had a cleft palate and an abnormal swallowing reflex, which meant she had to be fed through a tube in her nose. They started trying to prepare us that she probably wouldn t come home with us, John says. Their family priest came by to baptise her.

My electric bill is $480 every 90 days. Yes, using the dryer is expensive so we don t use it much. We use it for the sock/jocks and big towls, everything else is line-dried inside. (Clothes-munching dog outside.)

MEXICO - The Mexico Public Safety Department said Thursday it's looking for three suspects after finding some of their clothing at the scene of a burglary.  

Hey! Someone in my Facebook group shared this site with us so I came to check it out. I m definitely loving the information.

I didn t even know Northface EXISTED until I went to a certain baby ivy school . It still amazes me as to why its so popular. White people LOVE being unique, but they all end up being the same

A little TLC helps our clothes look good and last longer - from finding time to 'have-a-go' at getting out a stain to following the washing instructions on the label.

I WANT A MILLION DOLLARS!!! Can one million RICH WHITE PEOPLE send me one dollar apiece, puh-lease????

Im going to have to say this entire site is hilarious. ALL of you rednecks writing in with your shitty grammar also happens to be HILARIOUS. It adds character to this site. It also proves in fact that white people, white trash for the most part, are self righteous ignorant dip shits. Its funny because you see black people magazines. I always say, what if there was White People Magazine . I think black people (along with other races) would be pissed. BUT i am now reassured they would be pissed because all of the white trash would go running around with copies saying lookit what we made lookit here , we are the best USA wooo freedom acting like they never shit and piss excellence. i hate ignorant WHITE TRASH. get off your ass and join the military or get a job. get off your weak ass junkie ways. if youre not part of the solution you certainly are the problem. Thanks.

They're attracting all the investor interest because each company is trying to fill a void left by the big online retail incumbents. Though Amazon is deeply entrenched in almost every product category in e-commerce, and eBay rules resale, many consider fashion their most vulnerable segment, whether new or used. Amazon and eBay thrive as near-boundless vending machines, where customers search for anything and everything. Fashion is built on meticulous curation.

That s because there are too many dipshits on the roads who would not see us otherwise. Of course, there is always the assclown who almost kills me, then tells me: I didn t see you. I usually reply that they should look past their nose.

That side twisty ponytail definitely needs a tutorial to go with it are you listening, Namrata Soni ?

If your computer box has important identification material printed on the side, cut that portion from the box or take a photo. The only valid reason to keep tech boxes is if you frequently upgrade your devices and sell your used items. In that case, keeping the original packaging will probably increase their value.

Your height is a simple biological fact that you can do little to change, yet it may be influencing your destiny in ways you didn t realise. BBC Future combed through the evidence to size up its impact on everything from your sexual allure to your bank account and your lifespan.

 
In a StoryCorps animation, Patrick Haggerty remembers the remarkable advice he got from his dairy farmer dad.  

If you know how to sew you can make your own clothes and do clothing alterations. With the availability of inexpensive clothes and the cost of fabric, you may not save a lot of money by sewing trousers, for example. The big advantage to sewing your own clothes is that you can let your creativity go wild, creating your own styles and fabric combinations. A learn-to-sew DVD can teach you how to make clothing that fits great and shows your individuality.dresses for less

Nothing says a good mood better than a fabulous dress. Dresses have been a women’s closet staple since the history of women’s clothing. In earlier days, the dress was also popular with men (consider the Scottish kilt and toga for Greeks). From the elaborate crinoline dresses of the late 1800’s to the iconic white halter dress worn by Marilyn Monroe, dresses have been telling stories for years. Our dress story started in 1962 in Stamford, CT. For the last 50 years we have spent an enormous amount of time studying women’s fashion, the dress and what makes every women look and feel beautiful. Today at dressbarn we handpick our dresses from the best designers like, Carmen Marc Valvo and Heidi Weisel, ensuring quality down to every stitch. Find a maxi dress for your next vacation, a gown for your next night out, or an a-line dress for your new job. Whatever the occasion we have your next dress story.

Rob Well, you know your saris well because that is the right answer. Well done! Now, before we go, it's time to remind ourselves of some of the vocabulary that we've heard today. Will.

I live on the OR coast, just West of Portland (even more rain 70-100 inches), and you feel pretty stupid (regardless of race) not wearing waterproof clothing. We basically get wind-driven rain for about 10 months solid, and if you are at the office and head out for anything- lunch, home, post office- you better be wearing a Marmot or a N face with a hood. My personal favorite: the Seattle cowboy hat - this is a waterproof goofy looking floppy hat with a drawstring to keep the wind from blowing it off. You need rain pants to walk the dog and we have shoes that feel kind of like nikes but don t get wet. Other popular N Coast items: generators, coleman stoves, board games, canned food, lots of matches/candles (for when the storms knock out the power for a week). If you have to barbeque outside after your house just got its roof blown off in December and you ve been out of power for a week, yeah, guess what- bring on the cool outdoor gear. Its not like my brother in CA wears this stuff, hes white, but he just doesn t get all that crazy rain.

A striking picture of von Gloeden’s Il Grande Fauno (the Great Faun), circa 1895. Where other photographs of this model posing in character appear innocent, detached stern expressions interspersed with the occasional friendly smile, in this there’s a distinct leaning toward celebrating the sensuality and eroticism of both his character, and his proudly displayed body, bare under hot bright sun.

Published as a postcard circa 1910, this sandalled strongman leaves nothing to chance in protecting his modesty, and wears a large paper leaf, thoroughly secured with plenty of string!

Though very similar to this other photograph by von Gloeden, the mood here is changed entirely - no peace and gentleness in the model’s pose, the addition of some dark stain to represent blood spilling beneath his fingers.

A second artist’s reference image of this tall and well-toned model posing for Jacques de Lalaing, some time in the 1880s or 1890s. This print has been neatly drawn over with a grid pattern, which proves its former usefulness to the artist, even if it does distract somewhat from the aesthetic appeal of the shot, and the model’s good looks!

The bejewelled boy from Naples, his distinctive necklace and bangles barely visible in this shot, but more revealed by the dropping of the dark fabric which carefully covered him, when he posed for the better-known image in this set, Pompeii c1895.
