just being bored this holiday... though it's actually too hot too sew I have to do it...
some stuff I did last week:

a gold/white polkadot wrap dress I really like it, I just had the fabric lying here for months, didn't know what to do, start to make this dress out of it and I just got up with enough fabric, lucky me. Actually I want to have a gold lace but there was none I liked cause they where to small and didn't feel pretty, so I chooses this one, but I may change when I get the chance to get some pretty gold lace. I did this with pattern but I changed it a bit, the original had sleeves and an other warp which I didn't like. I am glad with the result I guess...
.

This dress I just made by watching another dress, actually this dress i made for my mom, but I runs a bit smaller since it's wasn't that stretchy, so I had to keep it for myself, I love the fabric which I just got in sale, I am not sure if I finished yet, maybe I want to at somethings like a bow or a lace or something like that.

fabric detail, cause the picture is so overlight...sorry!

and my green/white sailors top, who don't love strips? I just got a patch for really cheap and it real looks good on this top I think, this was an real easy project.. but it came out nice.
.
.

and a tut for the wrap dress... I hope you will understand since my english is that good... feel free to ask!

.


feedback/comments are always welcome!

the polka dot dress is my favorite out of the three.  Your sailor top gave me inspiration for a top I have.  Awesome work!  I second the request for a tutorial!

WOW!!! Love the dresses and the fabrics, where did you get them?! I've been looking for a polka dot fabric for ages, but so far have only found cheapish looking ones and I've used the only decent one I had...
