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!
