    I'm so excited that I made a dress from a pattern. I also made the belt with it too. I also sewed a little extra fabric in at the seams so I can let it out when needed. It's a little bunched up looking under one of the arms but that's cuz I didn't have it pulled down under the belt.

    I'm always interested to see things other have made too. So please post your pics :)

    Thank you Paul :) my gramma is gonna teach me how to use her sewing machine soon. I did this dress completely by hand. I'm a little intimidated by the sewing machine but I know if I can just get going at it I will be able to pop out a dress pretty quickly. So I'm nervous but looking forward to learning it.

    Cute dress! I'd love to find a pattern for a halter top in my size. I've made pajama pants for Matt and numerous costumes for the ex's kids. Most of the sewing I do is household stuff- curtains, slip covers, pet beds, etc. I don't have a picture of him in the pj pants. I'll have to take one. :)

    I've been browsing through patterns on ebay. I've found a few that go up to 6x but I haven't noticed a halter top. If I happen across one, I will post a note here and a link to it. I'm looking for other stuff for friends too so I will keep an eye out :)

    Don't be intimidated by the sewing machine. The hardest part is threading it. I started using my mom's machine at like 11 years old. I used to design and make barbie clothes. (You can imagine that barbie clothes are a lot harder than people clothes)

    I'm going to find my sewing boxes tomorrow to make a sundress from a pattern that I've kept out of packing boxes for the last year :)

    My energy/body got a little hampered by a hard workout in martial arts leaving my legs hurting pretty bad. So, I didn't feel like digging out the boxes. The kids are on spring break, so i wont be running all over tarnation, i figure i'll look for my boxes this week.

    Beautiful Job on the DRESS!!!! A sewing machine if your friend do not be afraid, I can't hand sew worth a darn.... you did fabulous, I would need a blood transfusion if I had done it from sticking myself to much. I love sewing but I like sewing bags and craft types of things. I am an odd bird though.

    Yay You! as soon as I resize them I will post pictures of my things... more crafts than sewing, right now I am working on a 2nd set of baby blankets for a nearby church. Their nursery was in big disrepair and they needed new blankets for the baby cribs. I made 7 right before easter and have 6 more ready to embroider with the churches name....

    Take pictures as you make your dress for me, I am so wondering how you do all that by hand!!!

    I'm hoping to have a shirt and a dress made this week :) if so, pics will come. I do have pics of a dress I made last year for a friend's wedding. Possibly a few other things, too.

    Yay I will look forward to seeing them :)

    I'm hoping to get myself on the sewing machine at some point but it IS relaxing doing it all by hand as I watch tv. I hope I don't sound like an old coot by saying that hahaha

    Here are two things I made while my mother was in the hospital last summer.

    I went rummaging through our storage and found a big pile of really old fabric that was never used. Some of it was older than I was! So I decided to make stuff out of it.

    I made my mother a t-shirt for the hospital and it was my first time doing bias tape, so it didn't turn out all too well. Lol.

    And then one of my best friends was getting married on an extremely hot day. So I made this dress for summer weather. I got lots of compliments on the fabric. It's all tropical print, with lots of parrots, and everything is outlined in gold. Reminded my mom of my family's place down south, so she bought it when I was really little. Finally made use of it :)

    Oh nice I love them both. I'm a huge fan of anything aqua/turquoise-ish. And the dress u made for ur friend, that was the first thing I thought, man I love the fabric. I haven't done anything with sleeves/shoulders yet. I'm kinda nervous about trying lol. All my stuff has always been easy peasy skirts and my latest dress, which has an easy strap top. I have a pattern for a pair of pants and a shirt. I'm gonna start on those after this next dress
