And i'm amazed at how good it looks, so professional.

Thanks all for your lovely comments!!
Hey, Silviacique! Where you from ?? Me alegra que te guste tanto ;P

Hahaha, yeh, I know Ericab, don't think the "seamstressey" really exists in the real world... How DO you call it? Blame my lack of "technical vocabulary" in english, as I say, its cos i learnt it all in Spanish! The same has happened to me with motorbikes (!) ... i got my license after moving out here, and only know what parts of a bike and 'manouvres' and things are called in Spanish... hahahaha, no idea in english!!

Well, thanks again, all, for such encouragement. And, katie-ramone9, give it a shot! Maybe don't start from scratch at the beginning, but perhaps there are commercial patterns that could be a base for you to play around with? You'll get the hang of it, like everything, its trial and error and patience... Or maybe try taking a class? I'm sure you wouldn't regret it ;P

...Oh, the THINKS you can think up if you only try!

Lovely job--large dreamy collars seem to be on people's minds this fall!!

No matter what language you use, the end result is the same: nice design and well made...

Hope to see more of your sketches to the completed outfit--everyone should try this (use thrift store or old fabrics to practice on!!)

how impressive - it's really inspiring to see the progression from sketch to the real thing. the lining alone looks really complicated to me, but i guess that's almost as important as the outside fabric to making it fit right. i'm trying to decide if it would be really cool or a little naff to have it with a matching skirt from the same material, as a sort of ultra-modern suit...? either way, it's definitely really versatile!
