    The Tropical Sewist commented on the project Silk Cocktail Hat

    I don’t know anything at all about hats (it isn’t the culture at all to wear them where I live, except the occasional fedora), but I do know that yours is very pretty! I’m impressed that you’re tak…

    You did we’ll with the sheer outer shirt…thin flimsy fabrics are so difficult to sew with! Love your stylin’ :)

    The Tropical Sewist commented on the project NYE Dress ;)

    The fabric is gorgeous, I think you made a good choice not to mix fabrics in this dress! The neckline gives it character…it’s elegant and sophisticated but unique at the same time.

    Very very festive Mary! You must have been the belle that night. The red would have been perfect for the Chinese New Year coming up soon…have you close Asian friends to celebrate with?
