Is it obvious that I am obsessed with Where the Wild Things Are? Perhaps it is because I was to be named Max if I had a peter at birth. But alas I did not, and now I am left obsessed with this child hood memory. Not to mention Alice in Wonderland, another obsession of mine.
But I digress, here are my latest charms.

Please try to be original in your designs if you mean to sell them as your own. It's just not nice OR professional to steal peoples ideas and profit from them.
I whipped this dress up in an hour using two quilt squares, some remnants, and one foot of elastic. The whole thing cost about $3.50 and fits my 24-month sized One year old daughter.
Halter Top Back
Front ( which was hard to get.)
I whipped up a little tute per request after offering. It only consists of 8 pieces, two of which are linings, and 4 are strap pieces. Great for novice sewers.
The best way I would go about measuring pieces for your dress is to take an existing dress and measure width and length. Mark where the arm opening ends to give yourself a base to cut. Trace half the dress, fold and cut so your piece is symmetrical. Make sure to keep your shoulder straps at least an inch wide PLUS sewing allowance. Oh, and the yellow on the Tute is the Elastic. You'll need about 8-12 inches.
I absolutley love the Burlesque Swaps. But, alas I missed them. I took the opportunity to practice and make these bad boys.
On the first one I used a broken, cracked ceramic pendant I wore to senior prom. A friend had given it to me my sophmor year, and it meant a lot to me. I also used a plastic pearl necklace I had been wearing since junior high.
The second one I used a broken vintage piece from my recon stash. Or should I say from my grandma's Antique booth junk pile. Which is mine for the picking.
I also used this big ornate pink feather duster I found brand new at a garage sale for 5 dollars. Talk about a super steal. Those feathers are expensive!
Both are sealed onto a head band, which is uncommon, but I think it makes them more secure.
