Well here's some more dresses and separates.

I altered the sleeves on this blouse and made the navy blue high-waisted skirt:






A fabric I found at Hancock Fabrics with little boys and girls riding carousels, and I made the blouse as well:





The only photo I have of the Skeleton skirt.  I found this on clearance at JoAnn's Halloween '06.  It's got little dancing skeletons in the black checks:



A dress designed by a customer, made my me.  Disregard the white marks on the front of the dress; I washed 'em off before I sent the dress:





A halter dress I made in a few hours last week sometime:






This fabric used to be a tablecloth.  I had most of it done some time ago, and it's been laying around forever, so I finally finished it this weekend. Bodice is pintucked:




An Ivory embroidered cotton JSK:






Wool Capelet, Bell-sleeve Blouse and Wool Pleat Skirt:





Baby Blue and Lavender Floral High-Waisted Skirt:




Thanks for looking!

Oh wow! These are all such lovely, well made dresses. If I had to choose, I'd say my favourite is a toss up between the white with cherries and the little kids on the carousels. I too am gifted in the boobs department, and that rouching/pleating is so flattering!
 
What talent you have!

Recently I have not been using patterns, I just measure and cut.  A lot of what I do make, if I do use a pattern, is pattern pieces from a variety of patterns to make the general shape of what I want.  I always keep my eye out for 99cent patterns and find the most lolita-style ones, and I buy Gosu Rori magazines when I can.
