Two words: Sock. Puppet.

I got the buttons at Jo-ann fabrics. They were sticking out on the shelf, calling to me.

Both of the fabrics were from the home decor bargain bin. You can't tell from the pictures but the black has a very simple design of stitched vertical lines.

I haven't sewn anything for at least a year. Life(...?) happened. Then I started knitting, which is all consuming. But yesterday I decided I needed a new bag. It ended up being the most complicated thing I've ever sewn without a pattern.

The buttons are wonderful!!! I couldn't get a decent close up, but I found one online:

Here is the exterior shot. Piping! I am amazed piping doesn't come up with instructions, you'd really have to think about it if you didn't know how. It's a little messed up on the top on one side, I don't know if I'm going to bother ripping and fixing it.

Inside. I made it big because of my knitting obsession. My "pattern" was putting an 8.5 by 11 piece of paper next to another half piece. I would've made a more complicated pocket, but it was getting late when I realized I had to remake the entire lining.

Comments and criticism would be appreciated. My boyfriend went all nuts about my semi-dormant skills.

Okay, let's talk Halloween.

For the past two years I've been vaguely working on a traditional Civil War dress, crinoline and all, but I'm basically halted on the first step (a corset) because I can't stop myself from seeing the whole massiveness of the project stretching out into the distance before me, and because I started it about four months after I learned to sew, so there are a lot of problems with it that I have to work around now that I know what I'm doing.

But last year I made a really great Burda 2493 Josephine Bonaparte costume (http://www.burda-schnitte.de/images/2493.jpg) that I'll re-wear this year if I don't find the time, inspiration and money to make this:

I can't take a picture of my Josephine dress right now because my camera is about 25 miles away, but if you'd like to see I'll put one here when I get it back.

I agree about the waist--make it more of a waist.

But I looooove the sleeves. Very Anne Shirley.

You might do best to get bras that can convert to halter, that takes care of strap issues, and then just make sure the back of your halter is high enough to cover the back of the bra.

I can't help with an actual pattern because I have a very very bad shape for halters so I don't have any experience making them.

Wow! You're me with a smaller waist! "We should stop driving and jump up and down and up and down and dance around and around!" (Neil Gaiman quote!) Lucky you. I'm just heavy, and you're heavy in that classic, hot, hourglass figure way.

5'6" isn't short (where are you from? A land of giants?). If you were actually short I'd say that that dress would be bad on you, because it does the long, flowy thing... and such, but I think both would look great.

I will definitely be making that dress as soon as I dig myself out of this bottomless pit of craft projects. (Oh, sad. I just realize that since I'm going off to live in a tiny dorm with a roomate that that may not happen for years!)

This is so great. It reminds me of a pillow my grandmother had when I was little. Nostalgia gives you extra points!
