Oh, wow, it looks like these took a lot of time! They all look so wonderfully made! Shocked

I was just glancing through Hello, Cupcake today at the bookstore, and it looks like a really great book!

Awww thanks, guys!  Cheesy

If you even have a bit of temptation to try it out, I say go for it! I'm glad I made it because it was definitely a 'learning experience,' not having any set of instructions to go off of

I really like this!!!  It looks like it fits you very well..  love the shoes too Smiley 
Thank you! I got the shoes from (all places) Nordstrom Rack! I love them so much. I glued the little rhinestones on the fronts, though, 'cause they were a little plain for fancy-wear  Tongue


oh dear! its georrrgeeeeous.

So, what industry do you work in professionally?
Do you make dresses professionally or is this just for your own personal enjoyment?

You do such nice work!
Oh, wow, thank you! At the moment I do it for my own enjoyment, but I plan to branch out this summer and do some work for others. But for now, I just like to make fancy clothes xD I would really like to get into costume designing, and I've gotten one job offer in that department Cheesy


Thank you all for the nice comments!

19  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Early 40's flared dress! (with link to pattern) on: May 27, 2008 07:17:31 PM
This may be my favourite dress I have made so far! I found the instructions to draft the pattern from vintagesewing.info. Drafting the actual pattern took me a few days on and off, since it was really boring and tedious to me...I bought the fabric from Jo-Ann's for about $25. I had a coupon for the plain black fabric, and the textured fabric was on sale already; so it was relatively cheap, which is always a good thing.
It's really supposed to have a cowl neckline, but it doesn't really hang that way on me. Despite that, I am so happy with the final result! It took me 9 days to complete from drafting to hemming... I spent most of my non-school time working on it  Grin

The piece of fur was the inspiration for the dress. It just didn't look right around the waist; so I tried it draped around my back, and I thought it looked nice.. the fur is--of course--repossessed, so it was given another chance at life. Tongue I don't buy new fur!

Here is a specific link to the pattern, if anyone is interested:
