Cute! What about tying it in the back?

Yes I like. I never even freakin' thought about the jersey knit bed sheets. Jeezum... I never have the good ideas.  Roll Eyes

Anyway... looks great on you. I especially love the first tee. Oh, and about the sleeves... how did you do them? I can pretty much figure out the main body of the shirt, but I'd love to know about those sleeves. Awesome job... and yes... yay for two new shirts!!

Yes, freakin' genius! I would never of thought tightie whities would have such a wonderful use. I knew I was strangely attracted to them for a reason. (I always seem to want to buy a package. The weird little front fascinates me.) Apparently you can make cool sh*t out of them!! Thanks!

Well, I can try to help. Who knows if I'll really be able to answer your questions like you want. I'm not a fan of t-shirt type fabric, since it can do funny things.

#1: Your first recon didn't turn out all that bad, to be honest. I'm sure it feels that way to you cause you know all the little spots, but in the pics, it's not as horrible as you think.

#2: As for it getting bigger, I'm not really sure. It might've had a lot of seam allowance, and when you took out the seams or whatever, the extra inch or so made it bigger. Or, you could've stretched the fabric somehow.

#3: Yeah, even though it's a recon, you should always measure before you cut and make sure things are right. Unless you want that uneven, thrown-together look. But always, always measure first. Oh, and pin your fabric before sewing. That'll help keep it straight, especially stretchy fabrics.

#4: I don't think the top part was sewn wrong, I just don't think you took the time to make sure it was straight, etc. It not being lined up with the rest of the tee would make it bunch up like that at the armpit.

#5: It's okay if you never wear it, it was good practice and you probably learned a lot!! That's how we get experience and learn from our mistakes.  Wink Secondly, I kinda think off-the-shoulder tees are a bit uncomfortable to begin with, but that's me.

#6: The underarms being too low is due to not measuring yourself first compared to the shirt you were using, to see how much room you needed. Or, you could compare with another shirt that fits really well. I could be wrong about this, but I think that's what it is. And it bunches, like I said, because it probably wasn't sewn on straight.

So, basically, you didn't do too bad a job! I hope I helped a little.

Although I hate hate hate patterns, I absolutely love your dress. And, you've given me some inspiration to check out the bedding department for fabric! I love your color choice with the bias tape. Super cute.
6  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Re: i revamped much of my website, how ya like me now?? :P on: April 25, 2006 03:17:02 PM
The main page is sooo cute!! I love the colors. You've got your links to your products on one side, a huge plus, since I've seen many sites where it takes several clicks to see anything. I love your incorporation of spring into your items. The main page instantly makes me feel good and ready to see what you've got sellin'!
I can't see any problems there. Smiley

The pages load fairly quickly... that's nice. You don't have a lot of fluff on your site which makes loading take longer. Your accessories are really cute, as well as your bags! Your jewelry is absolutely divine.

I did notice one thing that could improve. The descriptions of your stuff is a bit blah. It describes only what you need to know.... there isn't any fun and freshness that was on your main page when you were describing spring and the daffodils being out. Could you come up with a fun, spicy way to describe your pieces while still getting the essential information across? Other than that, everything looks absolutely amazing. A site I'm definately keeping on my list to check back often!

Take out all the pages. Use the pictures for some weird collages, if you'd like, or whatever else you can think of. Replace book with blank or lined paper, put something over the cover since I assume it has some sort of exercise theme on it, and use as a journal or sketchbook. How about using it to make for your heavy metal boyfriend with a heavy metal theme in it? I think a heavy metal themed love journal would be kinda cute! (But don't use the word cute... I don't think heavy metal-ers would like it   Cheesy )

I'd have to see an actual picture of the product before I'd be prepared to spend any amount of money. Just saying how many pages and what it's covered by doesn't say much to me. I'm picky. It depends on what the cover looks like, if the pages are lined or blank, the durability of the notebook, etc. etc. Wish I could be more help.

Try putting the paper in between two heavy books for a little while. That should straighten it right out!  Wink

Anything you can get the paper to stick to.
