    In that case, just tell me where you got the picture, and maybe I can hunt down the pattern.

    Its a form of Dragonscale. I'm not sure who created the pattern as I found the image at TheRingLord's forum.

    It's amazing how many of those lifelike mannequins don't protect their bare breasts hahahaha

    ??

    Do you have a membership to the forum there? I was under the impression that it was required in order to get to that section.

    I really love your gymnastics leotards. My great-niece is in a gymnastics club that trains students to hopefully go to the Olympics, and I will have to show her your site and see if she likes any of them for gifts (she's a picky little thing).

    Thank you so much.

    I used a Jalie pattern for the gymnastics outfits. The rest are my own designs. Your great-niece might want to check out their website for ideas. It’s a small Canadian pattern company specializing in athletic wear.

    I’ve shipped to Europe, Japan, Australia, all parts of the US and Canada. Years ago I had a client in Japan with a talented 8 year son. Last year he went to the Olympics as a member of Japan’s figure skating team. I haven’t made an outfit for him for years, but I was still excited for him.

    My goal now is to use up all the fabric, wool and crochet cotton I have before I die. I have two 5’ high shelving units on one wall of the sewing room, each with 5 shelves. Plus three boxes under the sewing table a half a closet of fabrics on hangars with patterns ready to go. And that’s just the fabric. Last year I cleared one shelf.

    My mom says she's so glad I inherited her talent and interest in crafts, so she can leave her stuff to me, instead of trying to use it up before she dies. ;)

    Was exposed when I broke my hands. Busted the right hand and two fingers, and only broke fingers on the left. I made at least one scarf a week. Halfway decent ones to for having gimped up hands.
