karen Benco, imo, you could have purple or orange hair and still look wonderful. Nothing about you makes you look older than you age and you are extremely beautiful. Enjoy your gray hair; there are exceptions to my opinions

Fabrics / Re: Is my fabric out of style?

Andi, I need to remind you that being out of style in our neck of the world is really hard to do. That being said, if you are not comfortable wearing it, don't do it.

Personally, slinky is really hard to wear if you are anywhere near, at, or post meno  :P

Claire, i agree with you wholeheartedly. But this seems to be such a contentious  subject that i back off in a discussion of hair coloring. I do think everyone should dye or not dye their hair as they see fit. But  IMO, non grey hair usually looks more youthful, if that is a consideration. I realize in saying that statement that many people on this site disagree. It's all a matter of personal opinion.

OK I'm going to say something very controversial here....I have never and will never believe that auburns, red-heads, strawberry blonds or Titian-colored gals should allow their hair to go grey.
Well Claire, thinking that other people should dye their hair is rather judgmental. My post- auburn, now brown and greying hair is entirely acceptable to me, and why should I colour it in if I don't want to? My natural hair colour looks just fine with my natural skin tone, as one's natural colouring usually does, in my opinion, for most people.

Like I said, it's controversial.  It's not for everyone and that's what makes it controversial.  Grey has a lot of blue in it and blue with a ruddy complexion just is not a good combination.  It's not an edict, just an opinion based on ruddy-colored members of my family and watching the grey bleed all the color out of their skin.  Also based on the color palettes for summers and autumns that contain no grey, light or dark, in them.  If grey fabric doesn't look good, how would grey hair look any better.  This is my thinking behind the thinking.

I think the controversy comes from the misunderstanding that I'm suggesting that you should deny your age by not turning grey.  That's not what I'm saying.  I'm just saying grey doesn't tone well with ruddy complexions.

I mostly agree with the judges decision for the past two weeks, both winners and those sent home.

I thought Sean's white RIT dress was not only clever but also something that could actually sell in stores.
Imagine the surprise you'd get not knowing what Monet design would appear on your dress when you venture out!
Although I'm not sure how one would keep the dye from getting on everything...

As for Kini's umbrella design --  I have to say that while unique and artistic, I'm starting to deduct points for his
all black designs with a very fitted bodice and unusual skirting.  He's already a creative designer, but black is
an obvious safe choice, and I want to see him leave this comfort zone at this stage and show us what he can do
with color.  (Also the judges picked on one of the other designers for areas in their garment that could collect
water, but said nothing to that effect when critiquing Kini's upside down umbrella.)  After mulling it over, it
kinda reminded me of Mary Poppins...

I almost sorta kinda get why the judges dig Amanda and Sandya -- they take the right amount of risk.  But
then I see the eyeballs and striped jumpsuit and I'm back to scratching my head.... ???

I cannot say anything about the exact topic going on. My mother has not even gone gray yet and it seems I got her hair.

But I only now figured out I hate how I look with my hair up because I was looking at mirrors with light colored walls behind them. Light colors plus pale skin undertones was low contrast. My hair loose and free makes more contrast. I pinned a scrap of dark fabric to the wall and got the contrast back at my neck level and started looking at the hair pinned up styles again.

A lot is going on here...I am taking a study break to say hello.  I am working on a massive amount of continuing education credits. 

Jan, I would think you could wear the stockings that have free toes, but (without knowing why you are wearing them) usually the footless ones are not as effective as the full footed version.

Patterns and Instructions / Re: Loes Hinse Patterns VI

....I did get the Ascona pant pattern.  I finally did get it to fit - but I had more problems with it then any other Loes pant pattern?  I'm sure it was operator error?? ;D
I don't know about that,marciae.  I never got the Euro to fit me.  I transferred the style designs to several.other patterns, but the euro itself I gave up.  I didn't buy the ascona for that reason.  IOW it may not be user error that is keeping you from fitting the ascona.
