1  t-shirt dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by chromaphile on: May 02, 2006 05:18:20 AM
New dress for spring! Made from a too-short pink shirt, band of red ribbing, a large grey men's T, and some vintage buttons. I feel like it should be shorter- feedback?Huh I've never figured out what magic skirt length makes us 5-foot women appear taller....

2  Red cord nairobi bag and little grey bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by chromaphile on: May 01, 2006 05:27:48 AM
I LOVE THIS NAIROBI BAG PATTERN FROM HOTPATTERNS!
I'm a do-it-yourselfer, I thought purse patterns were for winps. This pattern has made a convert out of me- the way the handle is done is pure genius, and the shape is better than anything I've come up with on my own. Thanks hotpaptterns!
It took a while to make sure I had the cord pattern going in the right direction. The lining fabric was from my grandma's stash- thanks memere!

One question about this pattern- I did understitch the inside seam allowances to the lining around the top, but the seam allowances are still flipping up. Anything I can try before I resort to topstitching?

And a little grey bag made last summer;


Comments appreciated- I just started sewing last summer....
