Wow!  You have such a green thumb!  I was looking for terrariums, but I'm thrilled to see the rest of your gardening success.  Finches in the hanging pot, dancing kitties, grass rugs, oh my!  Just beautiful!

That is wonderful!  My 17 year old son is looking over my shoulder and he says that is one tote bag that he would actually use!

Hi Laceyboo!  Sewing costumes for kids is some of the funnest sewing!  I was at Hancock fabrics this morning and all their McCall's patterns are 89 cents!  They have cute animal footed costumes for babies- totally worth a try.  You can do it!

Fabulous!  I think this would be even prettier (if that's possible!) as a table lamp...just so the artwork could be admired close up!  Really beautiful!

Nora- You are awesome!  That McCall's pattern is darling too-I will definitely give that one a try!  I had heard that too about the skirts and I have to agree.  What do you think of a-line skirts?  It seems like they would help to give the illusion of a waist.  I think the most important thing for me to do is come to terms with the fact that this is how I am shaped.  There is no point hating it- it is what it is!

Thank you again, Nora- this is all great help!

Most patterns will give you the diameter of the hem of the finished shirt.  It's usually printed on the bottom of yardage chart on the back of the envelope.  Many tops today have a lot of ease at the bottom.  If it's not going to be enough, cut your pattern pieces so that you are following the size 24 cut lines on the hip area and taper up to the size 22 cut lines on the top. 

Does that help?  Do you have a specific pattern you are looking at?  Good luck!

I have wacky proportions too and could use some help.  As I've aged (I'm 44), my waist has gotten thicker and thicker.  Now my measurements are 44"40"46".  My arms and legs are thin in comparison to my massive trunk.  I take pretty good care of myself, but nothing budges my middle.  Finding attractive clothes is challenging, to say the least. 

I would love to hear suggestions from all of you regarding what patterns might look right on me.  I work in an office and I love dresses, but when I try to do a sheath of any type, I end up looking like a refrigerator. 

Last year I made Butterick 4849 and it flatters nicely, but I made it a smidge too small.  Does anyone know of some patterns like this one with more ease?  Any fashion help will be welcome!

I think maybe your doll belongs in the More Art, Less Craft board.  Your bead work is astounding!  Love the finished doll- you're right- it is the perfect face for this doll.  Well done!
