I like the jacket it looks comfy and warm but its stylish too... I like dressier style with a casual fabric that is kinda my style too. I like the skull top where did you get the tshirt from?

I really love the first one.
It's super pretty, and looks extremely comfortable.
What kinda fabric did you use?

Everthing you made looks good  but the perfect lines of your hoodies are just amazing they flow with such a wonderful line..feminine, flattering and super cool.. really I stand in awe of your talent you see
Ive never seen a hoodie I wanted to wear until this post !!!
thank u... that makes me happy becuase I like hoodies but it seems like u seen one u seen em all and I wanted to make something different. So the fact that u said tht make me realize I got my point across.

i love your stuff girl, I try to wing alot of my work and well i end up calling them my Mishaps.
That shrug facinates me im trying to make shrugs from oversized tees once belonging to my bf. and i was looking for a look like that. I'm going to take a crack at it!

these are all my "successful" attempts at winging it. I used to get so frustrated and think I am just wasting good fabric but then someone told me that is how u learn. So I try something and it dont work it goes in my "retry later" pile until I figure out what to do with it next (which is how the shrug came about). That is if I have enough fabric left and if not oh well lesson learned.

I want to thank everyone for their responses it really makes me feel good

Wow, those are great! You have skills girl!
Is this just a hobby for you? You could make some good money selling your creations!

I am currently working on an etsy shop but its still in the works becauase I have a ful time job so it a matter of finding the time to get it all going.

Holy crap you've been busy! Tongue Wow, they are awesome clothes, my favorite is the hoodie.  love the dark bias binding (?is that what you call it?).

around the hood is fold-over elastic and the seams are coverstitched.  I do use french binding (which is kinda like bias binding just sewn a little different) on a lot of stuff like my tank tops 

HOT DIVA!!!

i second the patterns question. if you used any, can you please list all of the ones that you used? i'm a size 26/28, so i dont know if we have the same pattern measurements or not...

in rtw im like a 28/30 but in pattern land I am a 24/26 but I always have alter the pattern I have yet to find a pattern that fit perfect so I started making alot of my own pattern and using slopers/blocks. 

Wow all of these are incredible, but i think my favorites are the first 3. Also you eye make up is AWESOME will you do a tutorial somewhere so I can master the smoky eye?

I learned alot of my make techniques from youtube I loosely based this look on this tut. I just used different colors but pretty much the same application.

Wow. I am truly impressed. And trust me, I am hardly ever impressed.

Wow thank u very much

edit to add pattern #s...although most of them are altered in some way. I always have to adjust my patterns (mainly around my belly) but I also like to change certain design aspects of a pattern so that it is different. 

my fav summer dress orginally meant to be a bathing suit cover but its really comfy and cute so I wore it alot as a dress
no pattern

this i a top but I didn't want to photograph anything i didn't make so... I no pants
no pattern

same top with redisigned (non-functioning)button shrug. I didn't realize that strechy fabric needs to be faced in order to put in button holes. oh well... lesson learned.
no pattern

My walmart special birthday/anniversary dress. its kinda awesome if I must say so myself.
simplicity 5074

also a top w/o pants
simplicity 5074 (changed neckline)

These are the same fabrics they both have a kinda asian feel to them inspired by the fabric.
simplicity 4968 (no darts and added a yoke)


redesigned from a lane bryant LONG tubetop dress that didn't fit too well so shortened it and made it into a tank top.
no pattern (traced a tank top I have)


also a top...still no pants
serious frankenstien top. Hood from simplicity 4893,  sleeves from butterick 6092. top simplicity 5009 with some major alterations

stenciled shirts and my first flyfront skirt that has been loved dearly.

made from scratch and stenciled
no pattern winged from a top I have


redesigned (started out with horrible cap sleeves) and stenciled


stencil
