Time and Tru brand has some really nice tops. They wear well and are easy to care for.

I do food shopping at WM, too, and I always make a pass through the clothing.  I have found a few cute things and decently priced!

I have been a WM shopper for years.  Recently I have seen them change products from China to be made in other countries.  Ex.  I stopped buying a particular body cream because of China, I was in WM yesterday and got despirate and bought some and was surprised to see no China but moved the maker to a different place.  They are filled for Christmas at fun prices and when I bought none of the ornaments were made in China.  I do realize the other places have their problems but I was pleasently surprised and noe I can go back to using what I like.  Love WM online.

I read where Brandon Maxwell (judge on Project Runway) is the creative director for WM's Scoop and Free Assembly lines.

Interesting!  Congratulations! 

 

When my husband was in college (I didn't go, he was on football scholarship)  I designed and made all of mine and my children's wardrobe.

 

I took my daughter to town and bought her a dress before she started school so she would know you could do that!  Mom made all of hers.  Never made a dress from a pattern that looked just like the pattern!  Always changed the neckline, sleeves, something!

 

One of the nicest compliments I ever received was when we were discussing "sewing" at work one day and I commented that I did sew.  "We have never seen you wear any homemade clothes."  I wore them every day.   Nice to know! 

 

It is definitely an art to take a flat piece of material and create a beautiful, well fitted garment!  Your job must be very satisfying.

@sherrikay  I'm sad to say that the USA doesn't have skilled workers anymore for industries that no longer exist here. The high schools and tech schools create programs to train students in skills that the local economy needs.  It's just one issue in re-industrializing America.
