Yup! Got my own sewing machine and alter my own clothes :)

When I was in college I gave sewing lessons on how to sew buttons on, do simple repairs and hole patching.

I taught myself to sew when I was little, but now I can't.

Of course...and you should be ashamed of yourself if you can't. Ok so its not that big of a deal, but it is a ridiculously easy and convenient ability to have.

Oh 4 me that's really easy - learned it in lifeskills in middle school. I thought everyone was familiar. Hmmm...

I can sew a button, mend a seam, and do other basic sewing work. I don't have a machine, so the full on construction stuff is right out!

Um... you'd have to be a pretty helpless person to not figure out how to sew a button. =(

Yes, I can do that much. I don't operate a sewing machine though.

Not well. I wish I could sew. I really want to be able to make my own clothing since I barely find anything that looks like what I want and I can't afford designer. I also would like to fix the buttons on my coat since the buttons were not sewn on well at all.

Not only can I sew on a button, but I can create a garment from an idea in my head or copy one from a photo with ease. I used to design lingerie and clothing, so I suppose that may be considered cheating ;)
