I’ve got some beautiful seersucker fabr…

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…

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…

Really sweet all around! The buttons off to the side on both the jacket and the pants are a nice touch, as is the wide neckline.

I once had a pair of gap jeans that I really liked, and they were practically brand new when I fell down one day and they tore across the knees, seam to seam. I was so disappointed because they wer…
reneebeth commented on the project The Indian skirt
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.

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!

reneebeth commented on the project Summer of Love Blouse
(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)
reneebeth commented on the project Summer of Love Blouse
Beautiful! A question…about lowering the waist two inches, I can’t tell if you made that an alteration while making this particular blouse or whether you altered the actual pattern to be sold wi…

I like the combination of summery-seersucker and fancy Little-black-dress. I bet it’s the perfect summer occasion dress!
reneebeth commented on the project Linda Skirt in Gingham
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…

Congratulations on being featured! I looked at your top ten and loved that they were all pincushions, it made me realize that they are often overlooked!
reneebeth commented on the project lace, lace, lace....
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?
