Hello people, I just joined up here because I discovered a love of sewing I never knew I had.
I'm hand-sewing right now, I have an old sewing machine that I sort of inherited, but it is not working now and I plan on taking it to the shop when I have money.
I am very proud of myself because these are pretty much my first sewing projects...well besides the cross-stitch kitty cat I did when I was 10.
No before photos, but they were both men's XL t-shirts.http://photos-d.ak.facebook.com/photos-ak-sctm/v184/87/2/553623172/n553623172_410983_6664.jpghttp://photos-a.ak.facebook.com/photos-ak-sctm/v184/87/2/553623172/n553623172_410984_7066.jpg
I just sewed up the sides on this one and it was a little hard to fit over my boobs. The straps came from an old bra.

I used darts/seams whatever they are called on this one to make it tightish around the waist/belly and still be able to get my boobs into it.
Hand sewing takes forever, but I like it because right now I am out of work and do a lot of sitting on the couch and watching tv. Now I can do that and still be productive. It also is helping me cut down on the smoking because my hands are busy.
