    I took measurements today of my 7YO GD. She was visiting and after seeing my stash, she chose the fabric pieces she wanted me to make a "top with spaghetti straps." Haven't sewed up 100% cotton clothes in many years - not since they had to be starched and ironed! Anybody know if that is still the case with cotton?

    How nice! You did a great job on it. I sew some garments for myself and some for others. It is something I have done since high school. I won't say how long ago that was but, I am a grandmother.

    There is an interesting site that is very good to read up on sewing like this site. It is called patternrevew.com like here it is free to join and there is tons of information to help you along with projects. There is even sewing classes that you can take on line there.

    I hope you continue on since you enjoy it so much. You do such a good job.

    I love it! I think that style would even look decent on me. What pattern did you use?

    Wonderful work!! I think it's adorable and fits well. I'm also trying to expand my sewing skills, but I'm starting with baby clothes. It would be awesome to be able to sew for myself, though.

    very nice job. You look great. I used to sew dresses for my daughter when she was small, but not any more. Keep up the good work.

    It's like wearable art. You can't wear your quilts to the store, but you can wear your dress and everyone will be so impressed!

    Very pretty dress, and it looks great on you. I used to make most of the clothing for myself and my children and then lots for grandchildren. Fabric has gotten so expensive, though, that unless someone needs a really special garment (That happens.) I look for good sales for ready mades.

    Cute, a fun thing well done. The thing to remember - if you are having a huge problem just walk away for a while then come back to it. Sewing garments has been all my life, & am starting the quilting faze now.
