TR, think you might get more replies if you post in Arts and Crafts as there are loads of very helpful Mnetters on those threads....

Gah, there is website where you can buy these fabby pre cut clothes and just stitch 'em together.

I am racking brains, can't quite remember.

they are simple garments???

wow, would love to manage that

dd1 (8) has a desigm for a top AND the material for it too

it includes a goth type sleeve and a slice type collar thingy with frilly bits and matching scrunchie hmm

I would just be chuffed if I could make a top of some description that dd1 would want to wear and wasn't completely obviously home made

Oooh, I used to make loads. Those were the days...

IIRC I started by making an apron. ie, cut fabric then hem all the way round. Sew on braid for ties. Easy and good for practising straigth lines on the machine.
