lladybird Hey look- I made a bra! it's a little small, and I think I'd rather try a pattern with more structure next time. This ain't too bad for a first attempt, though! 3d
  •   redknitter I'm also looking to start bramaking, and I had the same thought--start with a soft loungewear style to work up to the real thing. 3d
  •   thesewingaffair I like it! Just finished my two day bra-making class - amazing! I may have found a new obsession. Let me know if you come across any good patterns. ;) 3d
  •   lladybird @thesewingaffair I'm so jealous! I wish we had bra making classes here. Have you seen @orange_lingerie's new bra pattern? Think i might try that one next bc it looks very similar to my favorite bra. 3d
  •   lladybird @redknitter this was a good practice, but forreal- I'm already ready to move onto something with some structure! altho this one will be nice for lounging around the house 3d
  •   elfieodette That looks a great sleeping bra. (Yes, my boobs are big enough that if I don't wear a soft bra like above I end up with them in my armpits. ) Wish we had any non-beginner classes here too. :-( 3d
  •   mmadalynne Standing ovation rught now. This is fantastic! ! 3d
  •   pammyoh Craftsy is coming out with a bra making class next week! 3d
  •   thesewingaffair Ohhh! Checking it out now! 3d

lladybird My daily sewing routine tends to involve a healthy dose of cat butt. 2w
  •   christinehaynes Yup. 2w
  •   cameo_of_karina Plus numerous sewing objects knocked over =^.^= 2w
  •   jkyzer11 When I first saw this I was wondering who posted a picture of my cat, Molly. 2w
  •   rochelle_new The other day I had two on my table and one on my ironing board lol. What the hell, cats. There's a whole house to sit on!! 2w
  •   ladybegoodla You should feel honored. Cat butt is privilege, or at least that's what Isis keeps telling me... several times a day. 2w
  •   devviepuu Lol this is my life too! He especially likes to crWl behind the machines and knock pins everywhere!! 2w

lladybird Happy day! Came home to find two awesome packages waiting for me- one with the newest @papercutpatterns dress (+ an older top, bc I have needs) and one with everything I need to make my first bra, hand-picked by @mmadalynne. Katie and Maddie- thank you so much!! You two are the best!! 3w
  •   devviepuu Sj for Marc Jacobs start knit? That is what I am planning for mine, with longer sleeves... 3w
  •   lladybird @devviepuu I think so! I want to make a test version first to be sure, but I totally took your SJ suggestion to heart 3w
  •   devviepuu You will probably want to take in the side seams, give them more shape. I know I did! And I found the neckbNd looked best when I made a few gathers at the CF 3w
  •   lostlittlecanadian These look amazing! I really want to try the paper cut patterns! 3w
  •   spoolschool Your FIRST bra? Congrats on becoming a women! 3w
  •   spoolschool Woman* 3w
  •   nycbookwriter I'm making that top, again, too. Mine is not that star knit you and @devviepuu scooped up. ;) 3w

lladybird Finally finished my @andisatt Aiken pullover! 3w
  •   sewinintherain Love this design. Just not sure about cleavage exposure. 3w
  •   lladybird @sewinintherain it's not so bad! Altho I don't really have a lot of cleavage to expose haha 3w
  •   nycbookwriter Which ya like better? Miette or this one? I've got yarn from PEI that wants to be an Andi, but it and me can't decide which one. Yea, like I let @heatherlou choose wool knits for skirts I'll rely in you to guide my sweaters. 3w
  •   lladybird @nycbookwriter well I like this one better but I'm biased bc the Miette doesn't come in my size also, I like that this is a pullover- even with the lace, it was a super fast/easy knit! 3w
  •   makingitwell So classy! :D love neckline details cos they are like built in accessories :) 3w
  •   marybeezo It's super cute! 3w
  •   reana_louise Dat hair 3w

lladybird And then it was my turn! Sooo nerve-wracking until we actually started filming, then it was FUN AS SHIT. Now I'm gonna go find me that beer I've obviously earned! @missmake @thefabricstudio @thesewingparty 4w
  •   windup_birdee Wow! Can't believe how far you've come! I used to follow you on lj haha. You're so inspiring and deserves all these amazing opportunities! <3 4w
  •   zoelivana How exciting! 4w
  •   tumbleberry What coloring do you use for your hair? Have you ever done manic panic? 3w
  •   lladybird @tumbleberry I use a mixture of Special Effects and N'Rage dye. I can't say I'm a fan of Manic Panic- every experience I've had with the stuff has even traumatizing haha 3w
  •   tumbleberry Ahh! What kind of traumatizing? I've never done an unnatural color, so I want something that won't be too hard to get out.. In short, trying to avoid trauma haha. I'll have to check those two out! 3w
  •   lladybird @tumbleberry oh, well, if you want it to be temporary, then stick to Manic Panic. My experience with the stuff is that it washes out almost immediately I love SE and NR bc of their staying power (shit ain't goin nowhere ), but it sounds like you want the opposite effect hahaha 3w
  •   tumbleberry Just until I get brave! :) 3w
  •   lladybird @tumbleberry don't be scared! It's just hair, it'll grow back 3w
