I always love your posts.  They are always inspirating. One of my goals is to learn how to sew and to sew well. I think a I can fit into Hillary Duff or vintage patterns.  You look great.  I remember your motivation dresses. 

http://www.wists.com is a social shopping site.  I don't have an account their but a lot of people here do.  I like to lurk over there from time to time.

I am floored by your fabrication talents! You've done some really wonderful work and I can't wait to see more, bravo! I like each and every one of the dresses you made. Great fabric choices and the detailing is just excellent. Smiley

How DO you manage to get such great work done with two kids at home? I'm about to be in the same situation and I'm working on starting up a clothing business at home. I don't know how it's done with kids!

Well congrats on the "about to be"!  The only way I get anything done is because of my insane insomnia.  not at all the healthiest way to go about things.  Sure I could get stuff done if I worked only during nap time and maybe an hour or two in the evenings.  But I have some compulsions and whatnot that make me take a bit longer to complete garments.  And at that scheduling, I would get maybe one thing a week finished.  But if you are the decisive type (unlike myself) and don't get distracted at EVERYTHING, you could probably pull off that type of schedule.  Also depends on what you plan to make.  Does it take a lot of time and/or focus? Or would they be things that you could do in a sleepless daze.  lol   

Thank you for that insight. Smiley It's actually encouraging. I'm not exactly "decisive" but I do get driven to do tasks if I'm really excited about them. Fortunately, the items I plan to make at first are fairly simple construction so I can focus on making them well and they should still turn out quickly. As I go on, and as the kiddos get older, I plan on taking on more elaborate projects.

Thanks again!

Perhaps it's for the best.  My mother already called 'dibs'on it.  If I try it on and love it (like i think I might) then there might be an issue.  Perhaps I can get her to take it and let me "borrow" it.  hmm....
