Ooooh, you gave me some good ideas, thank you!! I have a LOT of shirts that are a bit too short. This trick might work. It's worth a try anyway! I think the first shirt is 'pin striped.' Not totally sure about that part. Keep posting, I'm lovin' it! Pam Hoffman http://mycre8tivelife.blogspot.com/ http://twitter.com/PamHoffman

Oops, meant to mention also that they are using fabrics from natural materials like SOY! From their site: "DESIGNERS "Founded in 2003 by designers Danielle Nelson and Jazzi Januari, Xylem represents the designers passion to create sustainable, eco-responsible clothing with an uncompromised dedication to fashion forward style, versatility, durability and exceptional comfort." It's pretty darn interesting and I think you'd enjoy a look! Pam Hoffman http://mycre8tivelife.blogspot.com/ http://twitter.com/PamHoffman

My friend Diana loaned me her copy of a fairy magazine (sorry, forgot the exact name) and I found an ad for a clothing company. They had a website so, of course I had to look! These were cute clothes... Continue reading

I am actually considering purchasing a sewing machine. I keep looking at all this stuff, other websites, clothing construction, etc. and it's just a SIGN people! So, I'm looking for a little bit of advice. I happened to be running... Continue reading

I feel for you! I spilled bleach on a favorite top quite awhile ago too. I have kept the top around in the hopes of having more made. I even had a friend who was planning a trip to Korea where it could have been duplicated for a small cost (according to my friend!) yet she never went! I was so bummed. I still have the blouse so I'll have to see if I can actually do something based on what I've learned here. As for the site makeover - it sounds like it will be a 'membership' site and that is definitely worth looking into for a fee. Sounds like Nikki is getting the right help and planning on some FABULOUS stuff. I can sort of 'read between the lines' because I've immersed myself in the internet marketing world and I have a pretty good handle on how to make a website do some great things! I say take a look and add up the value for the cost. I bet it will be well worth it! Just 'my 2 cents' as we say! ;) Pam Hoffman http://mycre8tivelife.blogspot.com/ http://twitter.com/PamHoffman

Thank you for chiming in on this. I think I may do something similar sometime in a different fabric. Who Knows? :) Pam Hoffman http://mycre8tivelife.blogspot.com/ http://twitter.com/PamHoffman

I think this is adorable and that you did a fine job! I'm tackling some t-shirts myself right now to make into some thing 'glam' (from the great glam website). If you like wearing it, try more and get better at making them. Way to go Bethany! Pam Hoffman http://mycre8tivelife.blogspot.com/ http://twitter.com/PamHoffman

That is very cool and I can actually crochet! My mom brought me back a wonderful outfit from India from a trip she took there several years ago. It is way too small! Would you please write up some details on this? I would love to wear the outfit my mom brought me. Unless I lose a LOT of weight, I'll never fit into it as it is... Thanks a million!

Thanks for the support... weirdly, the things I've bought from catalogs/online in the past are amongst my WORST purchases! Go Figure. I'll probably try this in a T-Shirt first to get the mechanics down. I'm so glad you are all here for me! Pam Hoffman http://mycre8tivelife.blogspot.com/ http://twitter.com/PamHoffman
