I hope you'll run this swap again because I'd love to participate but I'm a few days shy of the month Sad

Thanks for the tutorial! 

Also I have a question.  I followed the directions for attaching the lining and the exterior to the first zipper side.  Then I got cocky and decided I would attach the two pieces of fabric on the other side in one shot.  So I sandwiched the zipper between the two material and sewed it once.  Is anything bad going to happen because I did this?  Does it make it weaker?

I made a zippered pouch (with a square jordy bottom) today from these directions and it turned out nice.  I don't have a zipper foot, but didn't have any problem attaching the fabric to the zipper.   Just remember that when you are sewing and come to the zipper, just move the zipper up or down out of your way so that you can continue sewing.

So clever!  Looks like you avoided the use of zippers which is something I'm fond of doing on clothes too.   Sleeveless tops always make me look really flat chested, but I like the idea of the seperate material on the top, that might help me out.

Nice effect!  I wish shirts whispered to me what they really wanted to look like.

The last time I was in the local Payless (shoe store), they were selling a variety of different solids and designs for $8.

Thanks for the lesson!  It seems that even if you're a beginner (like me!), your projects can turn out so much better looking if you take the time to measure, clip, press, and pin.  It's hard for me because I'm so excited to see what the finished product will look like that I want to rush through everything.

I really love the size of your pleats.  Could you let us know what the measurements were?  Also I like your idea for the closure.  I really wanted to try making a pleated skirt and now you've given me the courage (since it might be able to cover a crappy zipper job!). 

I keep reading on the board that to make the pleats stick around it helps to sew down the sides of them.  Does that mean to sew a little ways down the tops of each edge?  Trapping the pleats even more?  It seems to me as if that might look funny.  Does anyone understand what that means?  Maybe she could do it to this skirt.

I like the extra long tank top idea too.  If that gets too hot in the warmer months, you could alter your t-shirts by picking out coordinating colored fabric for each of your shirts, and attaching maybe a 5 inch band around the bottom of your shirts to make your shirts longer. 

Here's a link with some good ideas:  http://www.lekkner.com/tt_custom.html

That stinks about the dress code.
