Nicely done! You are certainly courageous for pulling that on your own.

Guardie for life.

I am really interested in doing a personal swap, especially for greener things like reusable lady items, wool dryer balls, or other such things.  I can knit, sew, draw, and put things together in pretty neat ways.  Please PM me if you're interested.

I want to make my own slopers too!

Did you check out that link I posted? It says to do it on a dress form but I just used myself as a dummy. I cut out squares of cheap broadcloth (4 for the top back and front and skirt back and front), held them up agaisnt myself, folded them in the standard dart areas so it fit right and outlined the darts, neckline, side seams and armscyes with a highlighter. I had to retry a few times to get it right, though. If you had a friend to help you out you could probably get it about right the first time.
