    reneebeth commented on the article Exploring Vintage Fabric: Seersucker

    It’s so cool to know where the word “seersucker” comes from, I’d always wondered about it. And I always get excited when the persian language is mentioned :)
    I’ve got some beautiful seersucker fabr…

    I love the first photograph. One of my favorite paintings back in high school was of Ophelia floating in the river! Definitely evokes the feelings I got from that painting. good job!

    I’m not sure I see “clown trousers,” but I bet they will be good for clowning around in!

    reneebeth commented on the article Exposed Zippers: In or Out

    Has anyone been watching “Project Runway” and noticing the exposed zips on the backs of almost all of the skirts and pants since the show started? I think they look very cool and edgy, but I’m wond…

    reneebeth commented on the project litle miss sunshine

    I don’t think the fabric is ugly! I think it’s cool looking. And if that is you in the pictures, you’re not creepy looking in it.

    reneebeth commented on the project Sewing Room BEFORE

    I love the blue, it’s got some great vibrations going on with the green chair. Add some orange and you’ve got a great trio of retro-looking colors!

    reneebeth commented on the project Striped Ruffle Top

    Pretty!! I very much like ruffly tops and the fabric is great. Good call on adjusting the sizing; it looks easy breezy without being too big or small (I’d be terrified to cut 3 sizes smaller, so I’…

    I live in a house with 5 other college students, and my bedroom is too small for a sewing corner. I basically have a few shelves in my closet for fabric, a couple of beautiful mason jars on display…

    I hope you either got paid for the refashion or at least got to keep one, as 10 skirts is a lot to sew! It’s well done and looks very flattering.

    Hi!

    I just read your info box, and am wondering if you’re an art teacher through the peace corps? I’m hoping to become an art teacher, I teach art at a park, but peace corps sounds adventurous!

    (Especially great since I’m the exact same size that Alden wears, I love seeing her as the model because it is very relevant to me)

    I like the combination of summery-seersucker and fancy Little-black-dress. I bet it’s the perfect summer occasion dress!

    For this kind of skirt, if you make it to fit at (or, in my case, slightly above) the narrowest part of your waist it won’t make your waist look thick at all! (I make mine slightly above because t…

    Gorgeous! I like the collar too, and how the lace borders the bottom is perfect. Was there a specific technique or shape that you used to create that collar?
