I love everything in this post---the dresses, the silly poses for the Spidey shirt (and the shirt itself, o' course), your awesome hair, the description of the sweater, and your "long arms" comments.  I superlove the grey dress.

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.

You humbly note that you're just getting the hang of your sewing machine, but you are clearly not a novice seamster! Your stuff is really beautiful, and I especially love the practice of reconstructing clothing as opposed to buying new. There's already just so much stuff in the world, you know?

I'm curious about your technique of cutting down your shirts, especially the sleeves. Did you eyeball, use a shirt that fits well as a pattern, make a pattern, etc.? I'm a self-taught sewer, and I find remaking sleeves tricky.

oooh, more comments!  Cheesy Thanks everyone!
Pumpkinbear, when I made these I basically eyeballed and used a shirt that fits well to compare sleeves. I've since started sewing shirts from scratch and I've been using the free Burdastyle long-sleeve shirt pattern as a body template for all my shirts and dresses. And because I'm new at sewing and lack confidence, I often baste with a big straight stitch and then try my clothes on before sewing it up with a zig zag or stretch stitch. If you're having trouble attaching sleeves, you should check out smarmyclothes' site http://www.whatthecraft.com, she has a couple of great tutorials on how to attach regular and raglan sleeves... I would've had a much easier time if I'd seen her tutorials before I started sewing sleeves.

I just visited that site, and it is brilliant! Thanks so much--it's going to be a great resource.
