    Tiny sewing is difficult enough, then you complete the project with amazing photographs.

    Oh, but the exageration to the hips gives you such a lovely hour-glass. Isn’t that what every woman wants?! I think you look just lovely.

    Piping is not hard to add. Very simple. It’s a matter of placing it so that it is at the seam line. I baste it and sew the seam with a zipper foot.

    These are great! How’s the fit? I haven’t tackled making pants yet. . . . I’m terrified of “whisker crotch.”

    In need of a bigger purse, I tackled this baby (which wasn’t all that hard, actually). The lining features slip and zipper pocket. I also made a little wallet (easy-peasy made up the pattern myself…

    A great bag! I was going to design a diaper bag for my sister, but don’t have the time. Instead, I’m turning to Ms. Butler for a pattern!

    I think it’d be a cute cocktail dress. Take the hem up to the knee. Maybe a magenta?
