    I just noticed you are in Dublin. I was in Dublin two years ago for a few days and then did the southern drive and back. What a beautiful land you live in and wonderful people we have kept in touch with. We plan to go back soon and visit with friends we made on our first trip and they are coming here in a couple of weeks to visit us first. I can’t wait! Hope to see more creations from you soon! Happy sewing!

    thank you so much for checking out my boyfriend shorts, it’s such a cool thing when someone takes the time to view and actually say something (good or bad) about ones work! I guess nail varnish isn’t just for girls anymore, huh? hehe.

    Thank you for the nice comment about my skirt! I will try to do a how to, just be patient! Until then I breifly explain the basic: The skirt has 12 breadths (6 of each color) and you just divide your waist width (with some cm added) into 12 and you have the upper width of each breadth. Do the same with the lower side according to how width you want it, to make the A-line. The lining I made only in 4 breadths. Zipper in left side. Good luck!

    Aibby, your comment was very kind. Although we had stretchy fabrics in Hawaii & late 60’s, I only had my Singer 221, a straight stitch machine. I never quite figured out how to pull the fabric while stitching to make it work on knits. Yes, we did swim in them, tho’ I waded because I do not know HOW to swim! I LOVE your Traveller Bag. It seems it would be difficult to make, so way above novice, and you managed so well. Color combo great-classy! Must tell you that today, 07/11/09 my 6th grandchild was born & her name is Ava! What are the chances of my seeing your post & then those wonderful chairs with "Ava’ on one of them! Very, very special connection… Beatrice

    thanks for your comment on my coffee date dress. I had trouble with the facing too – it turned out not to be exactly the right size, and if you look at the dress itself it’s a bit of a shoddy job really. I also ended up hand stitching the shoulders as i didn’t really get the how too, which too FOREVER! I think if i made another one i’d either do bias around the edge like you said, or give it a full lining with the same pattern pieces as the bodice (as then i wouldn’t get the line where the facing finishes)
