My first real clothing post!!!!!!

I have been in love with Erin Fetherston's designs for a long time. I don't think spending $350 on a top so I made this for myself. I got a little inspiration from Philip Lim's 3.1 collection also. I think later I will make it into a dress somehow. I am so proud of it! It is my favorite clothing item I have made so far. And it is super comfortable.

I made a dress too with a pink knit cotton material and a white floral cotton. I love it so much! I love girly clothes!!

I have just started making clothes so I'll get better. I need to get better at making my own patterns too which is what these are.

love, peach

I am adding these 2 dresses that I made today. The pink one is from my own simple pattern and the blue one is a modified 1967 McCall's pattern.

Those are so cute! I think you should add some shiny beads or a pretty button in the center or the rose. :3 I'm really loving the style of the top. Maybe I'll make one too. :0

well, petite, these aren't my first clothing projects they are the first ones that I am not afraid to post  Cheesy I love girly clothes but I am picky when it comes to clothes so I prefer to make my own from now on.

Thanks so much!

and Seven.. I thought about putting a button in the middle but I haven't found one to match. Thanks! and if you make one I want to see.

no, there is no zipper b/c the fabric is really stretchy

I might make a tute later on but I just made it up as I went along so it might be hard. I could give a vague idea of how to make one. It really is very easy.

THANKS everyone! love, peach
