    I sew for myself and for my home…. Love home decor projects! Still learning how to fit garments to my body, so guess sewing is a work in progress!

  2. Nicole Lesley says:

    I sew mostly tops and blazers for work. Its so hard to find a rtw style and pattern that I like and actually fits right.

  3. BJMarley says:

    My sewing time is limited, but I do sew my daughters’ prom dresses from their original designs. When I suggested that the current high school student (daughter #3) buy a dress, she looked horrified and said, “Our family designs dresses. We don’t BUY them.”

    Most often I sew sundresses, lingerie (which is great fun!), tops and bags. I like projects that work up quickly, although now and then a challenge (tailored jacket or coat) is good. I get a great sense of accomplishment from sewing.

    I love to sew baby clothes like baby bibs, baby feeders,baby frocks etc. It gives a lot of pleasure to sew cloth for babies.

  39. Jane C. says:

    Jackets. I have succumbed to the old ladies’ uniform of black pants and a great jacket. The last one I made was from Lorraine Torrence, who would also make a terrific guest. I did the Urban Treasures one that involved making your own fabric, in the chevron scheme of designs. It took forever to do it, but well worth the time,in terms of ultimate satisfaction. Now with my great serger I am thinking faster.

  40. Diane Juenemann says:

    I like making skirts and aprons, I am planning on making some tops and easy jackets for fall.

  42. Lawana Whaley says:

    pants because I have a very difficult time finding ready made ones to fit me properly

    I made at least 4 tropical shirts this year. I love them, and there’s an unlimited supply of fun, colorful prints to choose from! I use a Simplicity pattern, and it’s very easy. Can sew a shirt in 8 hrs. I also made another one for my sister-in-law (her 3rd).

  44. Nancy Glisson says:

    Slacks and jeans as I cannot buy ready made that fit.

  45. Nancy Glisson says:

    I sew al of my pants as I cannot buy them to fit.

  46. Rosa says:

    I tend to sew anything far not making any one thing more than once.( made a jacket once- was to little so no more. made a apron may make another wasn’t that bad. made a top to little again..) but those wrap around pants seem to be something I would want to make a lot of…. glad to see KNIT coming back. I have made in past lots of knit dresses and skirts..

  47. Diane Totman says:
