    I really enjoyed making the Alabama Stitch corset and I think you will too. I freehanded the daisy design without a stencil which I wouldn’t recommend unless you are doing a simple thing like daisies. I also bound the edges without using a “stretchable stitch” because I didn’t feel like those areas needed stretch. My only other advice might be to raise the neckline a little bit. I had to wear a camisole underneath it to keep from showing massive amounts of cleavage and I don’t have a whole lot of cleavage to begin with! Good luck! I look forward to seeing your results!

    thanks for the positive feed back. In general I just made sure to measure my size compared to the pattern (which I printed out). So for example my shirt extends far longer than the patterns longest length. But being as skinny as I am, I was within the width of the pattern. Lydia has curvy sides, which men don’t need, so you can take a straight line from the arm pit to the bottom of the shirt, or just soften the curve a bit. Also the collar is to deep for any self respecting man so copy the shape of a T shirt collar for the front (you can keep the shape of the back, I did). The sleeves from the pattern are unisex as far as I can tell.

    I just wanted to say that I love your Laura dress. The pattern is fantastic!

    I read in your profile that you’re an astronomer. Do you have a specialty?

    Oh, I’ve forgotten what you mentioned above in your profile! Sorry for suggesting to buy a new fabric… But if I can say, I think it is not that bad to purchase new/recycled fabrics for own clothes. Because it takes ages to sew a cloth, we can’t consume too many clothes, anyway. It always makes me think of what is really needed to me. I can be very cautious about what I am going to do (in the meaning of having new clothes). I hope what I wrote is understandable… I am a so-called “ecologist” and am fairly against the world globalism, so I think I know how you feel about THE consumerism.

    Hi Kallers, thank you for posting the comment on the leopard sarah. About “where”…I didn’t know that I was about to confess my cheating! ;) I really wanted that kind of fabric for a while but I couldn’t find the one. So I moaned a lot, then one of my best friends kindly gifted me this leopard from her pile of stash. You can try the same but nobody would be sure the result… Anyhow, I know your situation very well. I buy all fabrics from the internet fabric stores. I would look for the one on the internet stores. I remember that there is a topic (Cool Fabric…? don’t remember the exact title) in the forum about the internet stores. It might help you. I hope you’ll find a lovely fabric for Sarah!

    Great job on the western shirt! What a great find – that vintage pattern worked well ;-)
