04-21-03 Demo Logs: 1, 2, 3,

You are in "*g.MSATClayArt:1" ( )

dahs512: oh well
auntyalias: That's better
auntyalias: now to press some trouser clay
nor4man93553: I got did but only once which is a record for me
dahs512: you mean locked up?
dahs512: usually mine does ok
nor4man93553: I got kicked off
dahs512: mine just freezes
nor4man93553: on mine too
dahs512: golden britches coming up
auntyalias: now if we were being careful
dahs512: did you stack them together
auntyalias: we'll measure his waist and half of that measurement shall
be the top part of these sheets
auntyalias: yes, for I will cut the crotch seams at the same time
auntyalias: I got to find my measuring tape
dahs512: you could use a string and the measure the string
auntyalias: 8 centimeters, so the top of these sheets at middle shall
be four centimeters
dahs512: tiny waist, that
auntyalias: then from the belly button to the small of the back, get
that measurement
dahs512: that should be 4 also right?
auntyalias: that was 6 centimeters, so we need to divide that into
auntyalias: 1.5 centimeters shall be the curve of the crotch seam
auntyalias: but how far down do we cut that curve?
dahs512: I don't know
auntyalias: we have to put him in a sitting position and measure from
the waist to where his butt sits on a chair
frogger70301 left the room
frogger70301 joined the room
auntyalias: so we mark the sheets lightly. So from the waist to the
sitting butt
auntyalias: is the crotch depth
dahs512: ok
auntyalias: and the curves of the crotch should be 1.5 centimeters,
one fourth of the total crotch curve
auntyalias: you can use this pattern for yourselves
auntyalias: ya know
auntyalias: I cut one of the curves deeper than the other
auntyalias: that's because this body has a butt
auntyalias: and the front is flatter so the curve will be less
auntyalias: just like in your own trousers
auntyalias: look down the waist of a pair of trousers and you'll see
the back crotch seam is longer than the front
auntyalias: to account for the mass of the butt
auntyalias: can you tell I was a tailor before I did this...LOL
dahs512: especially my britches
auntyalias: now this might work out or come up short, just
remember...clay is forgiving
auntyalias: now, I ended up getting my seams wrinkled but I'm at an
odd angle doing this under the cam
auntyalias: you're going to be more careful, right?
ljcswartz: How can I quickly get someone here.... she has the yahool
auntyalias: have her right click on your name on her Friend's list
auntyalias: and "join user in chat"
auntyalias: that'll bring her here if she's on a PC
auntyalias: I don't know about MAC

frogger70301: Yahoo is messing with us real good today.
auntyalias: if you close my cam window
ljcswartz: Helaine you may want to make this a favorite room
