How to Make a Flared Long-Sleeve Top from Teach Me Fashion

"I hate it when downloadable patterns are so expensive. This one is $15.00. I have to print it out using my paper and ink. Then tape it together before I can begin to use it. Why aren't download patterns more sensibly priced?"

Mary Ellen Edwards commented on the blog post 'Trapeze Blouse Sewing Project - McCalls Pattern #5881'
"I wish I had that old vintage pattern in my size. Or maybe I would look like a barn. I love the shape of yours. I think the way you finished the armholes was great and repurposing the tie dyed tablecloth was so ingenious. Great job! "

Hi Mary Ellen!  I am from Littlestown, PA  I was very excited to find this site!  I own and operate an alterations business and every once in a while "get stumped" on a project I haven't tackled before.  I was looking for a group to network with and share ideas.  I think I found it!
