I left off a very important jeans tip. Hem your jeans at least 1-2" longer than you actually want them. Mine were perfect with the heels I wanted to wear them with but now after a couple of washings, two pair can only be worn with flats (I hate flats) and one pair is just too short altogether. It's hard to believe that I pre-washed my fabric twice!
I've been making knit dresses. With the leftover scraps I'm experimenting making panties. I cut the sides on the Warner brand that is my favorite and made my own pattern. More details on that later.
Last but not least I always seem to be able to sniff out a deal. I got this on clearance at JoAnns for $80. Did I do good or what?
