  1. I love your videos. Ive made so much from watching. I love the quick tutorials. Also your voice is so calming. Xo

  2. So many things wrong with this. Use and iron, and instead of showing yourself all hunched over, with your arms crossed in the finished product, just stand there, and let us see how it really turned out.

  3. I have a few shirts if you need one or just want to try again if you already messed one up

  4. Fantastycznie to wykonałaś! Tak mi się podoba jak to zrobiłaś że niedługo będę na pamięć znała cały ten filmik! Oglądam go już kolejny raz…piękna ta bluzeczka!!

  5. The shirt look nicer after you refashion it. Hopefully all women will never experience the tightness at the shoulder with this style.

  6. just thrown a shirt out of the window coz of this tutorial… instructions not comprehensive at all

  7. Very nice, but I think you should teach people to always iron the fabric before cutting. my teacher insisted a lot on that.

  8. You're videos are so well explained and professional. Hope to get there with time. Thanks for the video!

  9. C'est n'importe quoi ce Tuto. Je fait de la couture depuis des années, Ca fait 3 fois que coupe des vielle chemise XXL pour reproduire sont tuto, c'est tres mal expliqué, l'emmanchure ne passe jamais. Ca coupe est fausse

  10. this makes me feel nostalgic..when i was a kid, i also used to sit at the back of my mom's chair when she's sewing 🙂

  11. I absolutely love this video! Your tutorials are so easy to follow and figure out, and your channel has inspired me to hit up my local charity shop and create my own pieces more often!
