I did it!

I finally got layers to work in Paint.Net. I've been working on this for weeks to no avail and then miraculously it worked this time so simply I can't believe I ever had problems with it. Thanks so much to Em over at Em In The Studio for her post about Paint.Net free download and how to make these groovy garment mock ups. I don't really have much else to say other than it is definitely time to abandon Summer sewing around here and get to my long list of Fall/Winter projects. First up McCall's 5752 in a nice fall polyester knit I picked up at Hancock's for 40% off.

Is this cool or WHAT!!

I'll post pics of the finished dress as soon I can.

Happy Sewing


  1. Kelly - this is amazing - I had no idea about! I'm definitely going to check this out, thanks so much. I adore the look of that wrap dress you're planning to make

  2. WOW! Thats wonderful. I've been playing with Paint since loving Em's pictures. I having problems with it and need to play with it more.

  3. Faye,so you understand how truly excited I am that I finally figured it out.

  4. Eugenia,once you get it you will love it. I can't wait to see your upcoming projects. I like your "plain" skirt by the way.

  5. Looks great! Good job. Can't wait to see the finished dress. I'm always amazed that my little tute has traveled so far and wide after 2 years! Paint.Net is a GREAT program and I wish I could still use it. I'm back to the Mac now and they will never make a Mac version. Sniffle. It's power hungry photoshop for all my swap boards now!

    I've enjoyed reading your blog, I"ll be back!
