    Hello. I’ve added you to my friends, hope you don’t mind. Partly because I’m a musician too, but mostly because you have a similar body shape to me so I’ll be stealing your ideas! I’d love to be able to fit my own clothes but am scared of venturing into that! It’s daunting. But I can rarely find dresses, skirts and trousers that fit me due to a small waist and big hips, so sewing my own is the obvious answer. Anyway, I like your projects.

      Oh, I don’t mind at all! I have to admit that the fitting challenges are a huge part of why I sew—it’s just so hard to find things at the stores that I’m satisfied with how they fit, let alone the styles. Don’t be afraid to play around with it—I’ve kind of gotten into the habit of doing things like basting things first (especially skirts and pants) to check the fit before sewing for real. More time-consuming, but easier to rip out!

      Do you sing or play an instrument? And if so, what?

      whoops I’m really sorry, just marked your reply as inappropriate instead of reply! Sorry!
      Yes I play violin and piano, classically and academically trained but now teaching in a rough inner city comprehensive!

    Thanks for the nice comment you’ve made on my dress, it really stimulates me to continue sewing. Are you sewing anything at the moment?

    hi sunnyb4! I am looking forward to my junior prom (10 days left!) and I’m making my dress just like you! However, I am SO not far along…hopefully this weekend will give me some time. I bet your dress was beautiful, you’re so skilled!

    Hey Sunnyb, I was looking around in the forum and noticed your thread about sergers from a while ago. I saw you eventually got a Baby Lock 450 and was looking at getting that same machine and wondered (now you’ve probably used it a lot) what you think of it? Do you love it and if you don’t mind me asking…how much did you pay? Thanks.

    Hi Sunnyb64. I finally found a time to thank you for nice comments concerning my wedding dress. I like that we used the same pattern, it means that you liked it too. This dress was very important for me, especially because the fabric was very expensive. I was afraid that I would make a mistake and I had to buy more fabric for it. I was very happy about the results and about adding of the jacket, because it was cold that day.

    I posted it on my wall, but m posting here, too, to make sure you notice. :-) Pity, I have no idea what could be the problem with the blog… I never had such problem on that site. Maybe you’d better ask oonaballona, who managed to comment, about how she did it. Or simply leave out the site and e-mail (you don’t have to fill those in), I know who you are anyway. :-) “Poslat” means “Send”, i.e. “post”, I guess you got that right… Don’t hit the link next to the screenname, that is something like forgetting the screenname again or what (I never tried it.)

    Hi Sunnyb. I just noticed that you live in Bear, USA. Is that Bear, Delaware by any chance? I grew up in Wilmington!

    Thank you for your nice comment conc. my velvet jacket. I am very happy that other people like it. I did not have any possibility yet to where this jacket, but I will try it soon and I hope that it will not feel strange to where that kind of prints,

    SunnyB64; Not to worry. It took the oyster/clam/scallop, whatever a lot longer to make the shell. I understand that people are up to their ears(?) in “gators” at year-end. Nehmah PS How long is that wait compared to the Led Zeppelin reunion concert? Life gets more interesting as I get older. Nehmah

    Sunny, If you want some MOP shank buttons, I can send, no cost or postage charge to you, two sets in white. They can be dyed. I literally cannot live long enough to use up all of my buttons! Nehmah
