Soft, one cool trick with the snap tape:
sew it on at angle, then skip every other snap creating a ruffled look. You could even do this on an existing tshirt from one shoulder to the hem of the opposite side. you're right, I'm too lazy to get around to all of the projects that I've bought fabric for.

utopia--thanks for the link. I need to check that out again.

Thank you! It will be a while I'm guessing, mainly because I need the appropriate embroidery attachments.
*sigh*

I like the way this girl made the yohji. I wish I could pull something like that off but I really don't think I could. ah well, it's still quite beautiful.

Utopia! Thank you SO much for the pattern links.

I really want to make a skirt--a long one--but I've had a really hard time figuring out exactly how I want to do it. I don't want a drawstring skirt, but I want it to be flowy. Any suggestions?

I saw this picture yesterday and I was thinking of making something similar to this (only better of course ). I think that it would look very pretty in that crumply sort of silk, but I don't know where I would find that or how I would go about creating what's in my head.

I love to make things, but I'm a bit impulsive about starting projects and I won't necessarily finish something big like an item of clothing. I want to, though.
