    As you requested, I finally did a How-To on my Grey Dress! www.burdastyle.com/howtos/show/1033# The How-To is a shirt, but all you have to do is extend the fabric lower (and flare) for a dress! By the way, thanks for the comment. You have beautiful work!

    Hi Keelysews! Thanks for your comment! Now that you mention it, my wall is pretty full, but so is yours I see ;) I started the thread about pattern making software because I would like to learn more about it and if possible, try it. I’m always making patterns by hand, and to take it further in any way, I would have to go digital. I got a lot of nice and helpful comments from that thread, but unfortunately, I don’t have the money right now to buy expensive software. Thanks for your complements and let there be rock ;P

    Yes, the dress is for sale in my etsy shop, and the belt! Custom orders a pleasure, of course, and I’ll be taking pix of my other fabrics and uploading to my flickr tomorrow.

    Hi Keely! You’re very sweet, thanks! These pants are my favorite creation so far! I wasn’t sure about the wide legs and high waist( post two kids) but they rock!!! Have fun w/ yours and I’ll look forward to seeing them posted soon.

    Hi Keelysews, thanks for your message on my wall. I’m sort of just getting the hang of this sewing stuff, and I find your creations very inspiring, and I LOVE your style. I’m willing to bet the weather here is a Lot colder than yours right now…here, winter continues. >:( So, you’re a Mommy, too? How do you find time (and energy!!!) to sew as much as you do?!?! I have half as many children as you, and I find it busy enough!

    Oh, my fabric may not be the same. While it is very comfortable as well, it is not heavy but very very sheer! I’m going to use it for lining on a floor length summer dress (or maybe knee length) of my own design soon. Also, thank you for the comments on my creations!

    The new machine is fantastic. Every day I love it more and more. Funny thing is I got it at a shop that offers six month trade up options. They will give you full value in six months to get a new machine but that’ll just be when I get the hang of this one. HA! How is the drafting going? That is my next step. Any tips?

    So just a clean cut edge and a fake hem, huh? You are the master! You should have a blog devoted to keeping things cute but simple! I love all your tricks! I will try the blind hem…it probably doesn’t need any hem, but I just have this feeling i should somehow finish it more ‘nicely’ because it has a sort of elegant look about it…but maybe I’m over-thinking. Will let you know when I start on your fab dress!!! can’t wait.

    Hey Keely! Thanks for your comment on my dress and for stopping by on my profile. You really have no need to be jealous – you haven’t seen the inside of that dress. If it comes to sloppy finishing I’m a master in really bad disguise :D Your creations on the other look really neat.

    Your idea sounds good to me, and with THAT DRESS! you already have something really nice in stock (I would give my second best wig for that pattern ;) ) If you need any pointers regarding sewing “drag” I’d be more than happy to help where I can. Best wishes!

    Alright Keely…consider this your nudge to post a how to on that no pattern dress…or even just a nice detailed description. it’s just so fabulous I can’t get over it…and to think I could add it to my spring/summer line up with the ease you promise…well, that just makes me want to nudge you more!!! Cheating shortcuts totally acceptable!
