This is truly awesome. The ideas you craftsters come up with amaze me. I want to make one of these now too *adds to her wishlist of things to make*

Lol no haven't worn it yet. I finished it yesterday but haven't had anywhere to wear it yet.

Well I figured with 10 or so pages of comments, the likelihood I'd be repeating everyone's elses comments was pretty high. It's got me thinking of things that need sorting just so I can make something like it - my boyfriend's a house painter but I don't think his paint brushes really need sorting lol.

Thanks - it makes me wanna make more stuff out of t-shirt too. Luckily for me my bf and brother cleaned out stacks of their shirts so I'm set.

I think you just proved a point I made in my post - if you've got confidence while wearing it, it'll look great. Often skinny pants or plains may not work on the fuller figured, but if you do it right, it'll work - simple as that. I'm fairly thin, but the few plaid things I've tried on in shops haven't looked good on me because the cut was bad. It's not the fabric or style one should be worried about, but the fit and cut of it. I own a pair of skinny jeans that look good, but by the same token I've tried on other types and had them look awful.
I think that "was fat but now isn't" girl was just jealous you could pull off the plaid so well, specially since she may not be able to pull it off now even though she's thinner.

You've prebably already read this comment 100 times but THIS is a brilliant idea. I want one even though I haven't anything to put in it, just because I love the sheer genius of it.

I got a new machine and decided to try out some of the functions - this is the end result. I was going for a country look. Let me know what you think Smiley

This was my second attempt at this project (the first one turned out ok, but this one is much neater) - I wasn't aware when I did it that you shouldn't really use a stretchy material with calico but what I didn't know didn't hurt me hehe. I also found out after I did it that the velvet will wear out faster than the calico but never mind, I still like it.


Let me know what you think

I'm new here too, and I've also noticed that there isn't a great deal of nasty criticism - which was actually a main reason why I joined. I have no qualms if people say "You could improve it by..." and suggesting a fix, or pointing out a flaw in a way that allows me to fix it, by all means go ahead.
But I think sewing (like writing, which is another passion I have) can be quite personal, and when you've spent hours working on something, the last thing you want is for someone to run it down and tell you it's rubbish.
I'm not on many sewing forums, however I have spent many hours on writing forums so I know how much it hurts to be given nasty criticism, particularly when the person only runs down your effort but doesn't suggest how you might fix it.
Everyone is of a different shape, different race, and has different tastes. Some clothes I've seen on here I initially thought "oh yuck why on earth would you make that?" and then scrolled down further to see the item on the seamstress and think "well I'll be damned, it looks really good on her."
There are patterns and fabrics that are used on here that I don't personally like, and wouldn't choose myself, but if you are happy and enjoy wearing it, that confidence will exude from you and make the item of clothing look better anyway.
I've read several books on style/fashion, the best I found was Style on a Shoestring Budget by Andy Paige, I really recommend reading that if you're not sure what flatters/suits your body type.
I'm not very curvaceous and have an apple shape, but my best friend is and I'm looking forward to reading your tips and tricks on making clothes so I can make and recon clothes that'll suit her figure rather than mine.
Thanks for letting me share my opinion too Smiley
