WOW! You make me really, really, really want to take out the sewing machine RIGHT now and get started on a new project. I especially love your fabric choices. It really shows how it may look not so great on the bolt, but absolutely FABULOUS on the dress. Great job! Do you give lessons? lol

Wow! as others have said, your sewing looks perfect, but what I really want to congratulate you on is your choice of patterns. They are all chic and adorable, and that's saying something, because there are some really ugly patterns our there! You have great taste.

Y'know, since I started grad school I have packed on an extra ten unhealthy pounds that I am not too thrilled about. I've been making a slight (read: pathetic)  effort to get rid of 'em, but this is something I hadn't thought of: The Craftster Diet. Sewing as weight loss inspiration = awesome. Grin

Go for it man.  It works for me.  But go small.  Like just one size down.  Going multiple sizes down I would think to be depressing instead of motivating.

I think the fabric choices come from not beingable to turn down something being cheap or discounted.  I then have to justify it to my husband so he'll continue to fund this hobby..job...whatever it is.  I was just talkin to my sister about how the pattern companies using an ugly fabric or non-flattering fit on model can turn someone away from a pattern that has good potential.  Happens to me all the time.  Then I see something someone else made and I'm like, "they got the idea from THAT pattern?!"  Ok, that was off topic, but oh well.

All of your dresses are fabulous, but I especially LOVE the first one!  So Chic! 

Oh, I think the high waisted skirt is really cool too.  Hmmm, I wonder how that would look on me?

Great job!

I totally feel you on the wanting to pause thing. I've been losing weight for the past few months now. I've lost a little over 40 pounds, but I've still got another 30 to go. There are so many things I want to make but I keep putting them off, not wanting to spend time making something only to have it not fit later. I've decided to at least make a couple of skirts for the time being though!

And now after seeing your lovely dresses, I think I'm gonna get Vogue 8425!
