well im just finishing up two quarters of fashion, fabric, and contruction classes and these are the good things that came out of it.

vintage maxidress:

its a black floral print made from this 1975 pattern:

i had to shorten it five inches cause im only 5'2" but i like it.

easter dress:

pattern detail

pocket/lace detail

awkward pajama top that i altered to fit me, well kinda:

that looks fairly normal right? well, i can't figure out how to make the sleeves less fat. they are about twice the size of my arm as seen here:

it just looks super awkward.
and awesome lace heart pockets =]

I love your maxi dress, and i think the PJ top is very cute.  I don't see a problem with the arms though, you always need room to move in PJs Smiley Great work

Nice job, I like all the stuff you made. I can't really think of a good way to make the sleeves smaller without recutting them (I guess you could redraft the sleeve cap smaller and cut it out of the existing sleeve). Another option might be to just make the armhole smaller and make a gathered sleeve instead. The sleeve cap would stay pretty much the same and you wouldn't have to recut it, but it would be all gathered and stuff and fit your arm a little better. Smiley

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

I'm in love with the first dress. I'm a lover of vintage patterns. I've probably got about 100 right now, lol. You did a great job!
