Your clothes look like they are made really well. I was floored when I saw that you are only 13. You are good!

They are all so wonderful!  I actually think that my favorite is the skirt.  It is sooo cute. 

As far as the pocket goes, I think it would be really cute, especially if it was one of those single pockets that you can put both of your hands in (on the tummy part) if that makes any sense?  It is totally great just the way it is too.

you are excellent at reconstructing! you should make some tutorials. I tend to have ALOT of trouble when it comes to sleeves

Ok, here is a really rough tutorial/explanation of how to do sleeves. Note that I think this only works for stretchy material.

Cut out two shapes out of stretchy material, sew up the sides (so you end up with two 'tubes' than you can slide over your arm. make sure the the t-shirt is inside out and the sleeve is right side out and slide the sleeve into the armhole of the shirt (put the seam of the sleeve so it is meeting the armpit seam of the shirt). They should be right sides together. sew around the armhole, then pull the sleeve out (the whole thing should be inside out now). Turn it the right way around and voila!!!! You have a sleeve. Then repeat for the other side. Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

(I hope that actually makes any sense?? Feel free to ask me anything if It doesn't)

Thank you sooooooo much everybody!!!!!!!!! Grin Grin Grin
wow! thank you! that really does help me, now i see everything ive been doing wrong.

You know that black tee that you reconed? Where was it from? Because I found some random t-shirt that has a really similar design on it and the front says campangela or something. Haha.

Wow I love the first one! How'd you do that neckline? Whenever I sew on a thin strip like taht it sticks up all funny shaped ...
