    Yep it's a rectangle :p What your saying makes perfect sense and I will try that for sure. Love your dress btw. I have that pattern too and hadn't thought to do a different fabric on top, that looks great!

    I have that pattern and have made it several times. I love it. I have never thought to make the top a different color but I have made if with the center a different fabric. I don't have a good picture or I would share it

    Would love to see a pic! The bedding you made is so pretty btw! I am not brave enough to try and do a whole bedding set yet but would love to redo our whole bedroom curtains and all!

    I have been trying to get this finished since last summer, in a red and white linen print! Yours looks so nice. I'm having major fitting issues. :/

    I want to visit so you can give me sewing lessons!!

    I'm repeating myself but just have to say:
    Ladies, you are so inspiring! You're doing such wonderful jobs and some of you have such an enormous output.
    I usually only think about making this and that but hardly ever do. I should look at this thread more often, that might help :)

    Kamikat, that's super cute and I looooove your shoes!!!!

    I am making up a few shirts to wear while working as my husbands photographer's assistant. He was thinking polos, lol, yeah right! I just have to get the logo embroidered on the front and make a skirt to go with it. ;)

    Thanks!

    Just had to share... I posted that picture on facebook. One person commented that it was OK for me to update my look a couple decades... That got a big WHATEVER in my best teenager voice. lol He also said I reminded him of his mom. I don't think he ment it as a compliment but I took it that way. ;)

    Cute blouse! I just ignore those kind of comments.I can't believe people in this day and age feel the need to tell a grown woman how to dress.

    SheBear, I <3 your blouse.
    What pattern did you use?

    It looks like it fits beautifully and the trims really pop without being too much, I really love it.

    That's ridiculous! I'm sure his mom had a good sense of style though :D

    Thanks :D I used Simplicity 7780 it's a 1968 pattern that a friend gave me. I changed the collar and added detail on sleeve. The second one that I am making I am adding 2" to the bottom so it stays tucked in a little better.

    I recently made both the top and pants. It was my first time making pants and I think they turned out really well considering! I'll post a better picture if I find someone that has one! This was taken with my phone so that explains why it's fuzzy...
