    crockett315 commented on the article Make it Yours: The Button Up Shirt

    I am totally there! My poor daughter is a 34DD and not only do we have the gap problem, we also have the fact that the extra top stuff means having to lengthen everything to put the waistline wher…

    Anyone know if there’s a Burda-style pattern for the great trousers above? That’s what I’d like!

    Lovely stuff! Anyone know of a pattern similar to the waist cincher shown in the pic on the lower left? Seems fairly simple but can’t get it large enough to see detail!

    Those are soooo pretty! I just love ‘warmers’! Haven’t had the courage to try my own, yet. Do those stretch or snap around?

    crockett315 commented on the project SPRING SCARF

    That is extraordinary! It is very similar to a scarf I saw on e-bay (although that one was made of linen) and wanted very badly. Unfortunately, the bidding went way past my level – over $60! You…

    This outfit really caught my eye! Cammo is so fun and interesting, and you have brought it together with just the right color denim! Simple, but totally cool!
