So I haven't been active on the clothing front lately. My friends all got pregnant. I've been baby blanketing, via crocheting. Its...more portable?

Anyway, the other week I stayed up way too late and ordered fabric in an insomnia-inspired haze. I bought this awesome print and made this awesome kimono-inspired dress. The fabric drapes beautifully. I just wish it was warm enough to wear without tights because I dont have any that coordinate properly with the dress...I do, however, own coordinating boots. Hooray!



And next up we have a houndstooth dress, being modeled sadly by my dress form that I hate.



I realize I should have modeled this one on myself, as the empire waist is very boob-friendly. I dont know if you can tell, but the sleeve balloon over the cuffs slightly. Its really pretty.

In my late night, research paper writing haze, i thought at first this was some weird baggy prairie dress thing on the thumbnail. I'm really glad i looked though because I LOVE THEM! I better stop procrastinating and start writing. Great work!

Hahaha I know. I kept putting on the half-finished dress and made my boyfriend reassure me that it didn't look TOO MUCH like a muu muu. But its cool. Art-teacher chic, I like to think.

Beautiful.  Did you use any patterns?  My DDs need some boob-friendly dresses! Undecided

Unfortunately I play the cut within the general vicinity + sew game.

I should really write a book on ridiculously bad sewing habits.

Whether or not your sewing habits are bad...your creations are always fantastic!!  I'm glad to see you back in sewing action.  I love the fabric on the first one...and Houndstooth is soooo cute!!  I'm sure that it looks great on you!!  Now I have to go look for a cute dress pattern...excuse me please.  LOL  Wink

These are both gorgeous.  I especially love that large, graphic houndstooth.  You are amazing!
