...sewing long distance for my daughter using her measurements was a bit scary. I love to sew, but don't like to waste my time - like every sewist I want to end up with a good well constructed garment. Of course the bottom line was I wanted the tops to fit correctly, and I wanted her to like them and want to wear them. I made 5 knit tops altering patterns from my stash because we have different measurements and body shapes. I "guessed" at the alterations but I think all in all things turned out very well. I was happy when she sent me pictures this afternoon. Her smile let me know that she likes my work.
