Quick question: Do any of you know of a pattern I can use for a Peter Pan inspired shirt? I basically just want a shirt pattern that is V-neck with a collar, but one piece for the front and one piece for the back, not a button down. I can alter the pattern for the pointy collar and the sleeves and bottom I'm just planning to cut the fabric for a really messy (easy) look.

Any ideas?

What size do you need ? I have a Peter pan shirt sitting around.

The top is from the summer 2005 Ottobre issue. I've been dying to make this one for awhile. The skirt, of course, is Insa.
Does the skirt make the shirt look short in the front or is it me ?

I think we should have our own sewing board. One thread with with all of our awesome pictures of completed things and then individual threads with questions about patterns ? techniques, or whatever else we want to ask. I've seen some things get looked over and never answered.

I think that is an awesome idea. Goodness knows we fill up these threads quickly enough to justify it!

I think someone mentioned that once but I think everyone thought that it would be too complicated to keep track of so many threads. It is kind of nice to be able to look in one place for all the pictures of all the wonderful customs.

There was a suggestion that if you put your question in a red font (maybe with bigger letters or with the word "Question" in big, bold, red letters) then it would be easier for others to see it and answer it. I have seen most questions posted in red get answered.

Hopefully Teresa will stop by soon and move us to a new thread!

We've talked about this in the past too. Many of us have asked for our own board too. I like the thread, but I see where the board would be nice.

We can go up to page 250, so we are good for awhile! I haven't been commenting much lately, but I've been checking in quite a bit.

and, like I said, we can go up to page 250 before we need a new thread, so we are ok for the time being.

Hopefully Teresa will stop by soon and move us to a new thread!
I am one that prefers one thread. It really does help to put things in nice bold red letters with "Question" next to it. I know I notice that when I see it. Sometimes people just don't answer a question because no one knows the answer.

Perfect! I never thought of the post in another color for questions before. Duh. Only problem is it isn't easy to do without using code when posting from the iPhone app (not sure on iPad as I hadn't thought about it!). There isn't a "quick" format button on the iPhone app unfortunately!

So, I have been sewing. I am attempting to make Simplicity #2466.....



The pants and bag were so easy. thought i would have lots of fun because I knew exactly which of my fabrics I was going to be using for this. A mix of 4 that matched but didn't match. I got the first part of the shirt done last week and started with the more complicated stuff today. UGH !!!

I finally finished the shirt but I don't think I really like how it looks. It looks strange and way over-sized. I have the entire dress pieces cut out but I don't want to do it anymore after looking at the shirt.

I guess I'll have to move on...... I'll post pics later. It looks like it got some bad reviews on pattern review too. I'm gonna start using that more.

I did not make the bag but this was one of my first patterns here is what I made.




I layered the smaller size over the bigger size for their Halloween costumes, They were Rag dolls

I am so hopelessly behind. No way I would ever catch up, so I'm just going to start here and say I've missed seeing all the great things everyone makes and promise to keep up better this time!

And a close up...


I plan on making these for the little girls in my Dream FE group.
Those came out cute!

All the stabilizers were 50% off and I had an additional 20% off. We came home and played with the machine. It is pretty fun.

Congrats on your machine!

Luckily, I drive a Toyota Sienna so we do have plenty of room.

I have a method for packing my crew (and making sure everyone looks nice for pictures b/c I love taking pictures on vacation). I pack a complete set of clothes for every person for one day in a bag (like a plastic bag from a clothing store). I roll everything together with the largest clothes on the outside. On the bag, I place a tape label with what day it is for. I have also been known to pack one bag per stop when we make multiple stops. I pack the car so the things we need first are on top. I have it down to a science. My spreadsheet for making stuff (and figuring out what day it was for, planning the trip) will turn into my packing list.
You're a girl after my own heart. I have to pack in order that we will wear the stuff and also have a spreadsheet of what we are wearing on which day.

We're going on our first trip to Walt Disney World next August (2013), and we're taking our three nieces with us. I've been getting more and more frustrated at how little Disney clothing and accessories you can buy in the UK, especially in the ages I need - but you guys have inspired me to actually take the plunge and do it myself!

When I was little I used to watch my mum sew and I wished I could do what she did - sadly, she passed away when I was very young, so I never really had anyone teach me how to sew. But, thanks to you guys I've just signed up for sewing classes!

You are all fab!

So, Hello, and you all are a great inspiration and invoke major machine envy (I have a lovely sewing machine, but no embroidery.)

I've been so busy looking at everyone's goodies, that I am now going to go back and check the tutorials and other links on the first page.
