i use my thumbs.  but i dont reccomend it as it hurts and is frustrating.  Ive also done the saftey pin way and found it works reasonably well- but some of these hints seem tons better.

i've had my sewing machine for 7 years and JUST got a disappearing ink pen. i guess it's used for quilting? but I'm finding it indespensible as i've been using this awful marking pencil - anyway its helpful when you need to see where to sew. 
oh! machine oil, if oyu dont already have some- i believe someo ne already mentioned it but if it's been sitting around for a while a good cleaning/oiling should help you avoid a few snafus.  my machine came with a little brush and screwdriver for cleaning and taking things apart -also very handy for when bobbin thread goes all wonky on me.

probably the best advice would be to play with it for awhile before you start a project you have your heart set on-the tension? used to mess me up alot in begining.

Shelliebean - you're got to post pics when you're done!  Smiley

riiight- i guess i should actully get started.  i mean i have started but all of these great shirts i have actaully kind of fit me? except that they are too long and too wide once they hit the waist.  i need to go hit up gabe's- they always have fabulous men's button downs in great patterns for only a few dollars.
also i've been distracted by trying to make a maternity wardrobe, AND this kimono top that was posted on here a little bit ago AND the beatles sundress from a bunch of t shirts.  have y'all seen that? it's amazing and beautiful and has given me sooo many ideas to change it to fit my soon to be large belly and boobs.

lazeedayzee- i'm pretty sure gusset it the right word and yes your instructions make complete sense.  i'll try it and see if it helps but i think i need to work on cutting it right-i'm detirmined to be able to button all of the buttons.
157  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: outfit for an awful day on: June 03, 2006 03:00:56 PM
that is awesome, i love the wrap top and would be interested to know how you did if you don't mind sharing. and to echo everyone else- you are very talented!

i dont know if you have to- it just seems like you would, i mean think about when your bathing suits start to unravel and come apart? there's elastic thread in there.  but i don't really see how it oculd make that much difference.

rostitchery- that is a very helpful tip thank you so much.  it makes complete sense now that i think of it anf yet i've been trying to figure itout for a weeks. duh.
but anyway- your skirt is great and bonus! seems pretty easy to turn itnot a maternity skirt- i mean it would be like jeans right?
