Here are a few things I've made last month.

The first is a pair of pink sailer carpis. I'm still trying to build up the courage to wear them to work.  Smiley



This is a shirt I designed. I've since added little ties around the neck line. It was a little loose so I put the ties it to help hold up the extra fabric.



The last one is a shirt I made from a pattern but altered a lot. It was supposed to tie in the back but I took that part out and made the back solid. I also made the bottom a little shorter because the original pattern would have gone around my butt and looked weird.



Thanks for looking! Smiley

Why is it that I can no longer buy anything that has a slight chance I could make it myself? Even if I don't know how to make it, or it's cheaper to buy...I can no longer buy it because "I could make that myself".

I love love love the pink sailor pants!  The only pants I've ever made have been h'ween costumes for my kids.  A ninja and a jedi, I think.  Smiley  You may have inspired me to try "real" pants for myself! The ninja -did- keep putting them in his regular clothes until a seam pooped out.  That's a good sign, right?

Would love to swap, but must admit I'm a little flakey!

Thank you for the nice comments. I did fix the sailor pants a little. I made the waist band smaller and moved the buttons closer together. It made a big difference. I also actually wore them to work and I didn't get any funny comments. I might make more pants like that but with out the buttons and in different colors.

So anyways, thanks again for the comments!
