Learning to Sew:   I love teaching sewing and wish I could do that for you all. That would be a novel idea this summer...on my sewing blog, I could post a tutorial for how to sew a simple skirt...sounds like a lot of pictures. :o)

Shannon, I bought some of the fabric on clearance last spring. The guaze fall fabric I bought 70% off at JoAnns when it went out of business in Conroe. Huntsville's Wal-mart has the best $1.00 a yard fabric.  And the gorgeous black floral print was ONE DOLLAR a yard at our local Hobby-Lobby.

We habitually check the clearance shelves at all our local stores. I just bought TEN yards of plaid to re-do the colors in my sewing room at FIFTY CENTS a YARD!! from Hancock's clearnance! And I got heavy cream tapestry fabric -yards of at it $2.00 a yard to make slip covers for the office chairs in the sewing room.

You have to hit the clearance shelves. Rebekah and I do it every time. We won't buy it if it's not on clearance.  She bought gorgeous black with turquoise stripes suit fabric for $1.00 a yard and is making a very sleek and chic suit from it. :o)

You just have to switch from clearance shopping for clothes..to fabric. Stores: JoAnns, Hancocks, Wal-Mart, and Hobby-Lobby..and the thrift stores too! They always have fabric in our Angelic Resale bin. Or use old clothes..for the fabric!

Looks like you and I have some of the same taste in clothing. What I wouldn't give to be able to sit with you and create! If my sewing machine ever gets here I'll keep these patterns in mind.

I quilt but would like to do some clothings too, would you recomment a sewing class 101 or just try my luck ...?

This is a GREAT list. Now will you give us the heads up when one of the fabric/craft stores has these on sale?? ; )

These patterns are so pretty Donna. I have tried the skirt patterns, but not the blouses or dresses.

I think you have given me an idea to share the patterns that I use on my blog...ummmm!

Thank you dear friend for sharing,

Maria

Welcome to Comin' Home! If you lived nearby, I'd invite you over to my neck of the woods for a nice long chat and a cup of tea out on the deck. But since we can't do that, I hope you'll stay and look around. I love learning new things and sharing what I learn with friends. Comin' Home is where I share tips from my many projects. Let's have some fun together! XO Donna
