Q&A with Beth Huntington

K Lee 2Strings asked:
This is so pretty! Love the fabric, love the style, love the fit - I even love the shoes!
Beth Huntington answered:
Thank you so much for your nice comments! Aren' t those shoes amazing! I got them at a thrift store last year.
Screaming Mimi asked:
Very cute. Thanks so much for the tutorial...I love seeing people's process. I love what you did with this dress...very clever. I love remaking work shirts and I think that's largely because while I love making garments from scratch, I don't enjoy the process of cutting so re-fashioning seems painless. I had a look at the other things on your blog...great work! Thanks so much for the ideas.
Beth Huntington answered:
I agree with you about the refashioning being much more painless than sewing from scratch. I love being able to use existing button holes, buttons, hems, etc. Cuts down on the time considerably. Thanks so much for your comments! Beth
