Here is one of my first projects. It took me months to sew! It is a pink and lavender tweed that ravelled terribly. I had to zigzag each piece before I handled it too much. I had to be very careful assembling the dress because I couldn't see the thread after it was sewn if I needed to rip it out! I am happy with how it turned out.
This dress is brown and pink linen. I like pink, mauve, raspberry, plum, etc!
This dress is a black and white polyester polka dot dress. I made this because my husband likes polka dots. It is a wrap around dress which is very different for me. I made the front pieces overlap more than the pattern called for and I lengthened the dress three inches. It is a silky type fabric and the tie wants to come undone. Not good. I think I will put a button and button hole where it meets under the tie!
My current project is a reprint of a 1960's dress. I am making it out of rayon in a flowery print.
I hope you enjoyed the pictures! It takes so long to get pictures downloaded in this house!
