i love it, also your sewing room is so tidy.......how so? your cat is pretty cute too by the way!
Anna D answered:
I have to keep the area tidy with a cat around. She's obsessed with thread and fabric scraps!
BeaSewGood asked:
My favorite skirt so far. Did you use a medium weight denim? Does it have any stretch?
Anna D answered:
The fabric is really lightweight, no stretch.
JenF asked:
Great idea on doing denim! Any advice you may have on picking and working with denim? Is it a light weight version? Also, that looks like a top notch dress form that I dream of. Was it worth the investment? Is there away to adjust this type of dress form?
Anna D answered:
I bought the fabric in the denim section but I think it is more of a chambray. It looks like a very light weight denim. I'm just a beginner and love having a dress form. I think it's definitely worth the investment. This one is not adjustable, so I had to pad it to my own measurements.
