Hi! I’m here from the old board, although you may not remember me because I hardly ever posted…..(except to ask lists of questions!) My user name was Shining Light, now I’m shininglight.

 

I don’t sew anything fancy, mostly skirts, blouses and dresses for my mom and I.

 

I sew because:

it is hard to find beautiful, feminine, becoming, appropriate, clothing that actually fits!

I enjoy designing clothes

the satisfaction of a beautifully made garment (does anyone else get excited over little details like top stitching or the perfect buttons?)

 

Thank you to all the wonderful seamstresses here who inspire me! I enjoy seeing your creations and learning from your expertise!

Hello- pleased to meet you!

I only do historical sewing and I think you ‘re very clever to sew things that you can wear on a daily basis, and designing things needs talent!

perhaps you could post some pictures of something you’ve made? (I haven’t worked out how to do that yet!)

kind regards

Penelope

Welcome back!  I seem to remember that username from the old forum.  I look forward to seeing the projects you have to share. :)

Welcome back!  I am like you — reading a lot, posting little.  :D

Thank you everyone!

 

I’ve thought about posting pictures of the things I make, but I’m a very private person, and don’t like the idea of posting pictures of my self for the whole wide world to see! Someday when I actually get around to making a tape dress-form then maybe I will.

 

In the mean time I’ll just tell– I’ve just finished two skirts for my mom out of Simplicity New Look 6106. I highly recommend it- it hangs beautifully and went together in a snap!

You can always crop a photo so that it only shows from the shoulders down, or take a photo of the back/side of a dress so that it doesn’t show your face. Or you could put the dress on a hanger.   Just a few thoughts of possible ways to show your work without showing yourself!
