    Nice job! Great job matching the sleeve plaid to bodice on the front. (Better than the one the pattern is based on.) Other than a few visible fitting issues, it looks nice.

    Ghainskom, I give newbies a lot of leeway, because honestly, they are very proud of what they have done. I don’t want someone to stop sewing because they received a bad rating for poor quality when…

    OK, Nehmah, I think we can both agree that we both have totally gotten off topic, which was of all things, how to use the rating system. But it did feel good to vent, didn’t it? After all, why sew …

    I looked through the slideshows of the dresses for last 4 episodes. They do have the episodes available on line, maybe I will watch them. Reading the comments left by readers was a hoot. If anyone…

    We are beginning to sound like two old sewing teachers from high school….. Press, Press, Press! Grade that Seam! Rip it out and DO IT AGAIN! But, honey, those aren’t draped folds; those are stres…

    Personally I would rather see a rating system that has a cumulative point spread for each item of design, workmanship, use of materials and creativity with a "doesn’t appeal to me at all/Not applic…

    At least you have a better side. I just use a namesake for a picture for mine. I much prefer to be behind the camera than in front. I don’t know what it is about the camera used for driver’s lisenc…

    I don’t think the rating system is flawed as it is very subjective for projects. What surprises me is to see a project with 5 stars but no comments. It seems to be a rating of eye candy appeal as …

    Thanks, Nehmah. Oh the old site links were a different text color. Mousing over text is a pain to find the links. Wonder if it was design intent….. Naw. I won’t even get started on this sites des…
