I cut up an old pair of sweat pants, hoping to refashion them into a camisole. I'm still working on that part, but the eyelets on the waistband insisted they were a creature's eyes, so I quickly (hand) stitched a nose and mouth. Then I attached elastic and mailed it to a girl whose birthday was this month. I hope the six-year-old finds this as whimsical as I do.
Hi! I live in Virginia. My mom taught me to sew. I think I started at 4 or 5 by sewing buttons onto a handkerchief, but don't trust my memory. That was a long time ago. As a teenager, I was more interested in completing projects than learning good sewing techniques. Now, I am teaching myself some things I missed. My sewing interests are in learning to make alterations to and draft patterns to fit my petite 4'11" tall, 32" chest, 45" hip body.
