I JUST finished mine!
I posted it here, http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=158144.0.

Yours turned out so cute!  I love the fabric of the first one. 
I can't wait to make another one.  Has anyone tried this pattern with a tshirt knit fabric?  I know it's not one of the suggested fabrics, but it also doesn't say NOT to use it (like some patterns do with certain fabrics), so I was just curious if it would turn out alright...

I was thinking of trying stretchy fabric for the dress in this pattern. But because the pattern is made for non stretchy fabric it's loose so I would go down a size or so and take it in. I'm sure it would be ok with a few modifications.

Another knitter here who stumbled upon this on your blog.  I have been sewing bags lately and loving it, although I have NEVER sewn from a pattern!!  This may just have to be my first!   Grin


Do it--I've been working up the nerve for a couple of years now (no joke), I read everything I could and I was fully intending to make my first garment out of muslin--I think it's called a toile? Anyhow one night I just decided "I'm ready!" and made the first one. It was really so easy. Just like knitting, there is no time limit, you just take your time and read the directions. The second one was much more intuitive, it all made sense how the pieces fit together. And mistakes aren't irreversible like I thought--they just take more time to rip than knitting =/

I'm in - I just need to find the pattern.  Also, I thought they were done in jersey... What fabric is it?

Hey,

I'm a *total* newbie at sewing, but I bought myself a machine and am pretty determined! lol! Do you think that it would be in any way possible to make this top longer?

I mean, obv, I know I can make it longer, lol, but will I have shape issues?
Thanks for any replies!

I'm pretty sure that the top is cut from a generic 'front' piece that is longer for the other dresses, so you should just be able to not cut at the 'top' cut line.

Speaking of cutting--as I mentioned, I cut the wrong size (size 10) and bought another pattern to re-cut it. This means I have a totally usable pattern available for whoever wants it. For reference I am 5'8" and about 130 lbs, 34B bra size. I think these tops fit just fine but they are a LITTLE tight under the armpits. First person to send me a personal message with your address gets the pattern! I hate to waste!

The connotations wearing my nerves thin
Could it be semantics generating the mess we're in?
I understand that language breeds stereotype
But what's the explanation for the malice, for the spite?

Wow, both of those tops look great. I just started working on that pattern too, but I am afraid it is coming out too small. Hopefully it will fit my younger sister.  Smiley
