Nope, I haven't disappeared off the face of the earth. I've just gotten myself behind in schoolwork - again - and am playing catch-up.
I've gotten myself mired in details of the child's twill tape toolbelt that I promised. I'm still working on it, trying to find the balance between being specific and taking details to their most ridiculous conclusion.
I'm also excited to hear that people wanted to know how to make Groovy Girls clothes. I've got some patterns to share - I just have to find a scanner so I can convert my cutout pieces of paper into printable patterns and templates.
