1  White Summer Dress, Black Embroidered Flowers, pics in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by lhardie on: June 09, 2008 11:43:47 AM
My daughter asked me to sew her a dress for her grade nine grad.  Considering I had only sewn from a pattern once before in my life, I didn't feel too confident that it would turn out, but wanted to give it a try.

I couldn't be happier with how things did turn out.  The dress fits, it looks great, AND best of all, she likes it.

I had to take the zipper out three times and redo it to get a placement that worked for her, but it was worth it.

I also altered the pattern very slightly (it's a New Look pattern, don't have the number handy but if someone wants it, I'll go find out).  The pattern only calls to line the top half of the dress, but I lined the skirt as well.  I added extra loops to hold the ribbon, and we didn't sew the ribbon in place so she can move it and tie it wherever she wants.  Also, we chose to use ribbon for the straps and had them tie behind the neck instead of just putting white straps over the shoulders.

Sorry for the quality of the photos.

2  Cute Cherry Print Summer Top in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by lhardie on: June 03, 2008 05:58:03 PM
I used the Eight Dollar Dress How-To on BurdaStyle.com (http://www.burdastyle.com/howtos/show/724) to make this summer top for myself.  This is the second piece of clothing I've ever sewn, so I'm pretty pleased.  I think it turned out pretty good.

Today I got a package from xladyluckx who sent me a kit to learn how to embroider, a TONNE of pairs of awesome earrings, and a bag full of little goodies like game pieces, beads, vintage thread, skulls, guns, and so on.

It's hard to see the earrings in this image and I couldn't get a good photo of them, but there are some with skulls, little glass flowers, dice and beads, buttons, guns, and these really neat carved black deer.  As well are a pair with two silver anchors on them, but I'm wearing them right now so they aren't in the image!

Thank you again xladyluckx!!
