Wraparound "Jean Skirt" with yoke and side pleats.
This was made from a yard of $1 fabric from "the big W." It was this funky jean print on swoosh-y fabric and I knew I wanted to make a little skirt from it right away, but when i got home I had no zipper! ...what a quandary... and then inspiration hit-- hello wraparound skirt! I even found a jean button kit from 5 years ago! Perfecto!

My so-called "Maternity Dress?!"
I thought the print on this fabric was reminiscent of the colorful prints from Africa that are so cool so I bought it always intending to make some kind of shift dress and I finally got around to making one after like a year of meaning to. So the first day I wear it, I'm really happy that it turned out exactly like I wanted it to (short, roomy with little puff sleeves), and then *boom* the babushka-wearing cashier at costco compliments me on sewing my own maternity dress.... ...yeah... I was like, "haha, I'm not pregnant, that's just..um.. the style, you know.." But she obviously didn't believe me since she went on to recommend different maternity styles i could sew at home while my supportive bf laughed. GRR...
Can you tell i'm loving experimenting with photoshop as well? anyway, your comments are always loved!
