But here I am with just a few things I have been able to find the time to stitch.  I've been playing a little more with my own designs and/or tweeking patterns.  Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get as much sewing done as I would like, being that I have the 3 yr. old and 10 mo. old to tend to.  And once they've gone to bed, it' time to watch over the biggest baby of them all...my husband.  I really hope to get lots more done in the upcoming month.  I have SO many ideas and sketches to get to.  Anyway, enough blabbering...here are some pictures.



Vogue 8416 - Indigo and black iridescent, fabric from hell dress which is not really my size.  However I squeezed my butt into it for pictures.  Seriously, I'm not sure what this fabric or weave is called, but it took serious patience and measuring to work with.  As you'll notice, I leave things like hook and eye closures until the absolute final moment.  So understand the slight v shape in back.










I used a vintage, but Butterick 4859 is dead on - Grey and black color-block fishtail skirt.  The stretch of the fabric, along with the stripe really help to compliment curves, don't you think?  The hem looks a bit off in the picture, but I assure it's just shadowing or the way I'm standing.






Use a strapless pattern and add band and halter strap. - Red stretch cotton and black pleather halter.  The back slit is about 9" or so long.  I didn't take a picture of it, but I faced the slit with leopard print hem tape.  I think that's the part I like the most, eventhough it's not seen by outsiders.  Perhaps if legs are crossed or something, it'll peek-a-boo a bit.

I love what you've done, especially the first. I thought it looked really 80s, but on, it's fabulous. BTW, you're absolutely gorgeous, and I have such shoe envy.

Yeah, I ws a little iffy as I was constructed that one also.  But I'm that way with EVERYTHING i make.  I have such doubt in it, until it's completely finished and worn.  Talk about own worst critic.  BTW, you are super sweet.  Thanks for the compliment cause I feel a bit off today.  And shoes....sheesh.  It's a total addiction..that I don't really care to let go.  hehe

Wow- everything looks great and well finished!  I really love that skirt though- the black curved line designs are perfect and really flattering!  And I love the neckline of the first dress too.
