I tried wearing a t-shirt dress with leggings and didn't like it. The hem is so light, I couldn't tell if it was crawling up in back and overall, the leggins and tunic combination don't feel good to wear. So I shortened the dress to a long t-shirt. That was too long. So I shortened it again, but I didn't want to sew the hem again, so I simply folded up along the waist seam. Which, of course, affected the curves, so it no longer looks right. The smart thing to do would be to hem this properly to the desired length, but I'm finished. This can be a relaxed-at-home shirt. I may take out the waist-shortening, but that's all. Time to move on.
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.
