I've only had 3 hours of sleep, and it'll be at least 12 more before I can get anymore.  Not so bad if I didn't have SO MUCH to do today.  However, I figured I'd stop by Craftster and post a few of the things I've made this past month or so.  I don't get in nearly as much sewing time as I'd like, but I do what I can.  Being that I really don't have the time to be doing this, I'm gonna keep things kinda vague, and perhaps edit later.  As usualy, patterns used were either my own or commercial Frankensteins.

Dark Teal Twist Front Dress



Black and White Houndstooth Pencil Dress



Brown and White Mini Shift Dress (made from a vintage fabric)-Hilary Duff Pattern I've used like 4 times. Ha!



Simple and Chic Keyhole Shift Dress (Blackwash denim w/a sheen and black interlock)



Green and Black Mock Two-Piece Dress (Bright Kelly Green Vintage fabric)-need better action shots of this one + some sort of embellishment perhaps



There are a couple of shirts, but I'm going to stop with the dresses and get out of here.  Later!

Had to come out of lurking mode - I love love love your dresses!  I wish I had your talent and sass!  You look fierce in those pictures.   Cool   I think my favourite is the houndstooth, but really all of them look fabulous.

Are you kidding me?!  I'm pretty sure the action shot of the green dress is the best action shot I've seen!

Like always, you gals (and guys if you're out there) sure now how to flatter a lady.  After spending ALL day running my kids from appointment to appointment...I wasn't in the greatest of moods.  But I must say you all have helped.  Thanks a bunch!  I would love to get most sewing done, but I've been coaxed into a road trip this weekend, and don't see it happening.

Thanks hon.  The knot is a lot more simple than it appears. One side of the bodice is sewn with a loop left open along the seam.  The other side is pulled through the hole, and then seamed shut.  That probably made NO SENSE and I'm sorry.  lol  I am horrible and describing things with out gestures.

I've been tracking your creations and I have to say all your dresses are amazing! I'm so glad that your weight loss efforts were a success! Does sewing beautiful dresses in smaller sizes motivate so significantly?
