I made most of my clothes as a teenager, too, as well as my mom’s work shirts.  In fact, when I went to college, 90% of the clothes I took with me I had made with the exception of my winter coat, my underwear and my jeans.  I had several favorite patterns that I would mix and match parts (sleeves off of one, collar off of another, etc) to create my own styles and looks, and the skirt and pants patterns were adjusted and marked over to get the perfect fit for me.  My mom’s sewing machine lived in my bedroom for many years and she’d have to come and get it when she wanted to use it.

This article makes me soooo happy!
