I love it! This looks fun, and I bet it was fun to make too. Good job on the zipper too - invisible zippers are tough.

Good evening!

My daughter created a superhero persona called Beautiful Butterfly. She asked me to help her create her superhero costume, so here it is. This is the first dress I have ever made, and I did it without a pattern. I am surprised it turned out this well. She is thrilled with it!

Actually that's extremely helpful. Looking at a pattern is a very good tip.

I did go to the store today and play. I had never really paid attention before to what types of fabrics I was buying, but today I did. It's fun to learn.

Hello friends,

I kind of came in to this sewing thing a little backwards. I tend to just find clothes, deconstruct them and then teach myself how to make them from what I see. As such, I have zero understanding of types of fabrics and what is good for what projects. I have mostly just been going to the fabric store and picking based on feel and look.

I have just learned to make pants. I am looking for materials for these pants. The pants need fabric that is heavier than the standard cotton stuff you get at a place like Jo-Ann's. I have used some corduroy with really thin wales, and that turned out really well.

These are the pants I have made with corduroy.  

I want fabric that is soft enough to flow around a little, but not super thick or thin.

Please help. What should I be looking for?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks! That one is my favorite too. I love giraffes.

Wrap pants, my first love. It was through doing these that I learned to sew. 3 yards of fabric, not super difficult, but lots of fun to wear.

Hello all -

First post!

I have been making pocket belts. I have officially mastered at least beginning serging, and am quite happy with the results. These are made from various types of fabrics, and are usually backed with upholstery fabric so they are super sturdy.
