Jayne, this is amazing!!! Please post pics of the one you make for your pregnant friend! (What a great friend you are...) I am currently 4 months preg with my first and let me tell you, maternity clothes are WAY expensive!!! Even plain t-shirts and tanks are like $20 -$40. It's rediculous. So I will be making most of my clothes... Smiley At least it will get me back into sewing...
Anyway, as always, great job with originality and detail. And great figure!  Wink
AND its great to see you back! I'm glad you're doing well!

OOOOOHHHHHH!!!! This is soooo cute! Great job! I have been totally addicted to rompers this spring/summer and have been waiting for someone to make a really wearable one! I would wear this at least once a week... Keep it up with the great added accessories and cute fabric choices!

You rock. And you should DEFINITELY wear this everyday.

OMG

these are amazing. i mean A. MAZ. ING.

i have been trying to figure out how to make homemade skor/heath bars for freaking EVER!!! and these are even better. 1st of all, you don't need a candy thermometer. (WHAT?!?!) i never can get it right with those things anyway...   oh, and there is something about those saltines that just give it that extra something (that i didn't even realize) that a skor bar needs.

dE - LISH!!!

thank you all so much for your wonderful and uplifting words! i haven't received the professional pics back yet (btw, how long is that supposed to take?!?!? - haha) so i can't find many photos that actually show the whole dress - without my husband covering half of it, anyway - these do show more, though. i guess earlier i was just trying to show the details...

the roses were super easy, too. i took long strips (varying between 1 1/2" and 4" wide and 1/2 the width of the fabric [my silk was 65" wide] to the full width... i wanted several different sized flowers) of silk and folded them lengthwise twice (just on one end, very simple), keeping the raw edges free. then thread a needle and knot the thread to the folded end of the fabric. twist the fabric (tightly or loosely depending on the look you want - mine were in-between) and make a small bun, like with your hair, and sew it down. it should look similar to a rosebud (well, made with silk). continue to twist the fabric (i directed it outward and away from the bud) and sew it down every few twists. once you get to the end, tuck it under your rose and sew it down. that's it!!! it is so easy. I tried with several different types of fabric (tulle, lace, crepe and ribbon) and none of them worked anywhere close to as well as the silk. it seems hard to handle at first, but once you get the first few stitches down its a piece of cake! it also looks beautiful with the raw edges tucked in, and if you twist the fabric toward the center instead of away; it's much cleaner looking. i have made these for crochet cloches, and as pins. you could probably decorate anything with them!

okay, on to the pics:



and just for fun



thanks again! let me know if you attempt the roses for anything, i'd love to see them!
