the last one is so cool!!
well, I did steal the idea so it was not exactly creative of me.
er, maybe you were joking
I love everything! But I especially like the dress, it's amazingly cool. I don't think I could in a bajillion years ever ever manage to make that.
It wasn't actually too hard once I figured out the shape of the top. But in all honesty, even though I'm happy with the end result there's a lot I could improve. I'd like to make another one, maybe with a different type skirt.
(I also have a looonnnng neck. I understand. Oh, and the long arms, too. I HATE 3/4 sleeves!)
ha, thanks! and thanks for commiserating! I don't hate 3/4 length sleeves--in the spring, when they're intentional. What I hate is having 3 or 4 inches of skinny wrist sticking out of what's supposed to be a long sleeve shirt. Especially in the winter, I like to keep my hands tucked in!
I totally love your pinafore, now I really want to make one. The weird thing is I usually don't like them, but yours looks fantastic on you, especially with the striped shirt! I'd love some detailed shots of the skirt part if you don't mind...
hey thanks, I'm glad I've converted you! The only real difference between mine and the others is mine's just a flared skirt instead of being gathered at the waist, so it's more fitted over the hips.
I didn't actually sew it in six pieces--it was two pieces. I added the exposed seams afterwards. I actually really like the "handmade" look with visible seams and raw edges so it worked out pretty well.
