Cute!  Good idea with the panels.  I would've ended up scrapping the dress instead of making it work.  Oh, and I cannot ignore the hair and everything.  I love your hair color and look at those shoes!  lol

Cute!  My 4-yr-old son says "Mom, does she have Brobee pants?  I want Brobee pants."

I just looked at all of your post, and I'm going to be lazy and leave a mass comment here.  Cute, sassy, tailored, flattering, and I'd wear them all!  However, I must say you do wear them darn well.

Aw man, I wish I had breastfeeding zippers when I was feeding.  Great idea and cute dress.

oh my gosh. they're all cute, obviously, but i really like that first one. was the knot hard to do?

Thanks hon.  The knot is a lot more simple than it appears. One side of the bodice is sewn with a loop left open along the seam.  The other side is pulled through the hole, and then seamed shut.  That probably made NO SENSE and I'm sorry.  lol  I am horrible and describing things with out gestures.

Like always, you gals (and guys if you're out there) sure now how to flatter a lady.  After spending ALL day running my kids from appointment to appointment...I wasn't in the greatest of moods.  But I must say you all have helped.  Thanks a bunch!  I would love to get most sewing done, but I've been coaxed into a road trip this weekend, and don't see it happening.

I've only had 3 hours of sleep, and it'll be at least 12 more before I can get anymore.  Not so bad if I didn't have SO MUCH to do today.  However, I figured I'd stop by Craftster and post a few of the things I've made this past month or so.  I don't get in nearly as much sewing time as I'd like, but I do what I can.  Being that I really don't have the time to be doing this, I'm gonna keep things kinda vague, and perhaps edit later.  As usualy, patterns used were either my own or commercial Frankensteins.

Dark Teal Twist Front Dress

Black and White Houndstooth Pencil Dress

Brown and White Mini Shift Dress (made from a vintage fabric)-Hilary Duff Pattern I've used like 4 times. Ha!

Simple and Chic Keyhole Shift Dress (Blackwash denim w/a sheen and black interlock)

Green and Black Mock Two-Piece Dress (Bright Kelly Green Vintage fabric)-need better action shots of this one + some sort of embellishment perhaps

There are a couple of shirts, but I'm going to stop with the dresses and get out of here.  Later!

Burda Style free Pattern 6010 looks a lot like that multi-size dress. Here's the link:


Just lose the big collar and maybe add some oomph to the sleeves.

Does this look about right? I'm thinking about making something like this to wear to my SIL's wedding

You know, that's a pretty good match.  It's not as much volume, but can definitely work.  GOOD FIND!  I should check out the Burdastyle patterns.

As always, so gorgeous--love, love!!!  Also, with the multi-size dress, did you sew the ties into the side seams and then wrap them?  By the way, you look fabulous!!!!

Exactly.  That way II keep length and the belt won't shift much.  And thanks for the compliment.  I've been working HARD on trying to rid the evidence of the second baby.

Thanks everybody!  As always, you all know how to lift a gals spirits. 

Um, what was I going to say?  Oh yeah, the multisized dress! 
While I did that on my own, it's fairly simple.  Basically, it's a tent dress with long bishop/poet sleeves.  The neckline and cuffs are cased elastic.  I made the ties very long as to give different tying options and waist sizes.  So if you can get your hands on a tent dress pattern, you'll be pretty set. Ooo, ooo, oo, I almost forgot.  I did get inspired for this by a vintage pattern I once saw.  Perhaps an Ebay or Etsy search will lead you to it.  Sorry if I'm not of much help.  Or you're welcome if I did help.  hehe
