31  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Neck Line Help! on: April 24, 2009 05:11:08 AM
Hey everyone,

I was wondering if someone can enlighten me.  I have an idea for a shirt I want to make and I want this kind of neckline....

I can't picture in my head what the front piece of the shirt should look like when I cut it out.  If anyone can do a really rough schematic for me on how to accomplish this, or any advice I'd really appreicate it!

Thanks in advance for any help.
32  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Newbie! First Jacket! Thrilled with the result! on: April 20, 2009 07:30:21 PM
Hi everyone,
I'm new to the site and sort of new to sewing.  i used to sew in highschool but took a 5 year hiatus.  This is one of my first projects back (I'm 25 for the record).

It is a short bomber type jacket from a McCall's pattern.  I'm not good enough to go without a pattern yet!  It was my first time lining anything so I'm happy with how it turned out! I thought the fabric was really unique, and I just lined it with some sweatpants type material (Still learning the lingo)

I'm really enjoying the site and getting really inspired! Hope you enjoy my work

And of course some shots of it on!

Advice, Criticism, Praise....... All welcome!  Cheesy
33  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Cat Daybed! McCall's Pattern on: April 20, 2009 07:24:27 PM
This was my first attempt at something crafty mixed with sewing, I learned the hard way about burning myself on the gluegun.  I was thrilled with how it turned out and shockingly, for the most part, my cats use it for the intended purpose! 
Ta da!

They like it so much that they fight over it!

Oh man, this has to be the most glamourous cat accessory I have EVER SEEN. Wisting, WE HAVE TO HAVE ONE OF THESE. I'm seriously impressed :-)

I should have posted earlier!
It's McCalls M5677
this is the website I bought it from
http://www.mccallpattern.com/item/M5677.htm?tab=hilary_duff&page=2 (mod's please remove if this isn't allowed)

there are 3 options to choose from, but I thought the one I did was the most chic.
