I love the things you made!
I'm a starter in sewing as well, but my sewing machine is allways complaining and I can't get it to work the way I want it.
Or maybe it's just me  Tongue (no, the machine is *** as well..)
They are fabulous! Unbelievable that this are your first things from scratch!
I want to buy a new sewing machine  Grin
I really like the puffy sleeves, but that is what I like. What do YOU like?  Smiley

I like the puffy sleeves, I think they go with the shirt, besides it looks good on you.
I like the skirt a lot. A lot a lot.
It was from scratch? Dang good job.
Any hints with the skirt?

I am certainly not fond of puffy sleeves in general but in all honesty, these are nice. They look well thought out and well constructed.

I love the first hoodie and the colors of the skirt are gorgeous! You do lovely work and the puffy sleeves are fine. Smiley

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

I like all of them, but most of all, I like the skirt best. It's very cool, and I don't think it matters if the patterns don't "match" exactly; they're similar in style and color, so it makes a statement overall. Both of your shirts are very unique, and yes, ambitious, but it's good to challenge yourself and learn. Great job!  Cheesy

I love the skirt. And the turtleneck. And the everything.
All the little details are neat.

Ahhh I love them all! The skirt is especially rad. And in my opinion, the puffy sleeves are awesome, so I think you should keep them! I also noticed that you have this cool bunching around the turtleneck part... very nice effect.  Cheesy
