this little lady is amazing. hope someone in the fashion world notices her!
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
That is pretty cool. Wish I had some of my old clothes back. Oh well, I really must get busy and make some. I haven't made any clothes for so long but want to make just a basic dress. Noticed the prices of patterns, my gosh, that has really gone up since I last sewed. Will have to stick with the $3.99 ones or go to the thrift store. How about any of you ladies - do you sew your own clothes?
Well, they were all ugly before and ugly after too. I can't think of any of my clothes of the past I liked enough to want to remake into something new. I'd rather start from scratch.Originally Posted by angieh1964
Isn't it amazing what she did with some of my old clothes? :lol:
She definitely has a good fashion sense! :D
What a thrifty and creative young woman. What she does with clothes is amazing. Of course it helps that she is slim and trim!
Watch for patterns on sale for $1 at Hancock's. They frequently have a particular brand of patterns (sometime Simplicity, sometimes McCall's, etc.) on special sales.Originally Posted by sasseyib
I saw the Yahoo! story on her. I think what she's doing is a ton of fun and shows talent, too.
Looks like she buys the dresses several sizes too large for her, which gives her a lot of spare material to work with. She can totally recut the lines that way.
Thank you for sharing the link. Need this for all the girls in the family.
What a fun blog! That woman has some talent! I wonder how she takes the sides in...I have a few dresses I wish I could do that to.
