    Hi there – I finally got the pjs completed and my husband can now wear them! Thanks for your help. I definitely need more practice sewing and I’m going to attempt a skirt I think for the fall.

    Thank you so much for your comment on my colourful ruffles top;] BTW the bust part, it’s good when it’s well-matched and tight-fitting, and when there’s elastic band at the bottom. Sew it with the side stitch with the top /leave the upper part/ Then add another stripe of the elastic band to the upper part /you should sew three pieces: underneath bust part, upper part of the top and elastic band/ And voila!:] It’s not difficult, but looks good without any transparent piece. And i’m in love with the vinyl records too:D I found them in the cockloft, and wanted to do sth with them. And as I lokked on my plain wall I immediately decided to hammer some nails, and hang vinyls:D Search for in your cockloft:D Greetings

    Hi and thanks for your comment on my friend’s beanie. I had a pattern for a baby’s hat and just made it a bit bigger. It’s 6 pieces and then a band. Very easy!

    Thank you for your comments on my sewing room. I had just done spring cleaning that day and thought I should take a picture before I get “creative”. It does inspire me but it has become really difficult to even start a project with most of my time going to work, family, church, and sleep. :o)

    Thanks for the kind comment about my 80’s era wedding dress. I also enjoyed learning that the nosey cat in your photo is known as Plonky-Hoof. Right now I’ve got two cattle dogs with pretty good manners, but I’ve had many cats over the years and can totally relate to the plonky-hoof reference! Cats have such a sense of entitlement, but ya gotta love ’em.

    Thanks so much! It’s nice that you think I may be able to design my own clothes :) Yeah, you’re right – every time I’m short for fabric, or something goes slightly wrong, I think I get a better idea of how the pattern pieces congeal to form a garment. I’m becoming more and more confident ad-libbing patterns, so I’ve started ignoring the instructions and figuring out how to sew the garment up myself. I think that’s really helped :)

    My tropicana dress is my own design, although all it is is two rectangles really! My formal dress is my own design as well, although my mum helped a great deal and we combined several patterns together as well as our own stuff to create it. I’m working on a more complex design atm! Fingers crossed it turns out well!
