Hi everyone!
I haven't posted since I don't remember when, but that doesn't mean I haven't been sewing. Here are some things I've done in the last few months. I don't think I've posted any of these yet...

This started out as a dress from Burda magazine's March issue. The sleeves were too puffy for my taste, so they had to go. This is what it was supposed to look like

I love this dress! It was so easy and it is so comfortable. I copied the cover of a book for the embroidery. I used to work at a library at my university, and the covers of some old books are so lovely! I know I'm a dork. Here's a closer look

I love skirts with pockets!


My own pattern.

I made this before I went to Vegas last December (and yes, it was for the Spice Girls reunion concert), and since I made it last minute, it's not my best sewing job. I'm sure it would be fine if you took your time and didn't make it on a deadline, but it definitely is not supposed to be made in a week!

I'd love to know what you think!

I love the first dress and the skirt with pockets.  They both look cool.
