thank you francesca, charlotte and cowboyboots

I've got a bit of free time these days (unfortunately), so I've got a couple of other projects going. I'll post pics sometimes when they're done.

Same here. I look forward to seeing your projects utopia (and everyone else's). I need some inspiration to do some sewing from scratch. All I seem to do lately is alterations.

i just finished a skirt i made for my 7 year old neice! it's my first sewing project, sewn in its entirety, from a pattern that i actually followed, so by my own admission it's not very good, but i made it! and she's 7, she'll never notice

i'll post a picture later, i don't have a camera in front of me right now. in our class, my friend melissa and i (who also made a skirt for her neice) wanted to see our finished products on an actual child, but didn't want to seem creepy just going to find one. but right at that moment, a group of kids came into the next room to work on crafts, so we went and recruited a couple of aspiring models to try on our skirts! they looked sooooo cute, and we got to see what they actually looked like on a kid, so we felt really good about that. they actually look OK!

i promise i'll post a picture soon!

on thursday I'm going to sew a skirt for myself for the very first time, it seems so simple but I'm sure when I get started I'll notice it isn't so very, my mom is a dressmaker so atleast if I get stuck I'll have her. anyhow, I'm looking forward to showing off and being all proud when I get it done.

^ very exciting elli - what type of a skirt is it? skirts are usually not too scary for first-timers - and if you do make mistakes, you can count if off as artistic license. let us know how it goes
