in the mean time, I keep pumping out little dresses like these.

This is my Twiggy Dress. It is designed after the wide bodied mini-dresses from the 60's. I trimmed down the sides several times because I just wasn't sure how wide to make them. But I think this works, especially with the cardigan. Does it need white gogo's? Haven't come to that conclusion yet.



This is my Eyeball Dress. It is the most comfortably soft and cool little thing. The yoke and bottom band are white cotton broadcloth and the body is a soft cotton jersey knit that I got at Hancock Fabrics. After trial and error and several calls to my mom to help me remember how to sew knits (always use a ball point needle and a zigzag stitch!) I got this dress.




This is my newest creation -Cotton Candy. The underslip is a poly-interlock knit and the overdress is just a lace fancy that I found on the clearance table. How sad that I haven't taken a picture of myself in it yet. According to all the little old ladies at church, I am an angel and a babydoll in this pink confection. It is quite alright with me though. If I can brighten their days by being adorable all the time, than I must be doing okay. Each piece of the dress took about two hours to whip up, and the ribbon was an afterthought, as the body of the overdress is very similar to the shape of the Twiggy dress - wide. The ribbon cuts me in half and give the body a little more shape. Too bad you can't see it here. I promise, it looks much better on a person than on the hanger.

I really like the second design, does the fabric have little eyeballs printed all over it??

I'm not sure what they are exactly - just a little geometric print, but they look so much like Eyeballs that we started calling it the Eyeball dress.
