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!

Nice dresses. Which pattern did you use for the wrap?

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!

glitter is the herpes of crafts. once it gets on you, it never goes away!

I did use a pattern from the burda magazine ( netherlands) but I will add a tut soon.

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...
