Please excuse how terrible these pictures are, i'm sure plenty of you know how hard it is to get a decent picture by yourself. Anywhooo

I've only really gotten into sewing in the past few months. Can knit, crochet, etc all that, but this is the one thats a lil difficult for me. I don't think it helps that I have to alter my patterns almost 100% of the time because of my size.

this was the first thing I made and I think it was also the most time consuming


this was made out of an old sheet and was really just for practicing


this is the one that made me discover that knit fabric can be my friend and foe


mini dress that I never really got to fit me right (another altering nightmare)


I <3 this pattern, i'm sure everyone is familiar with it on here


this is a convertible dress I made to wear for my friends b-day, its hard to see the ties since its black but theyre wrapped around under my bust twice and tied in the back. Theres about 8 ways the pattern showed to tie it.


Any suggestions or c/c are appreciated as these are my first clothes to make and if anyone wants the names of the patterns let me know so I can dig them up!

I love the skirt and the turquoise one! Did you use patterns for both of them or make them up yourself?

These are fantastic! I second the question of which pattern is the turquoise dress with the brown skirt piece. I'm still kinda new to these boards so not familiar with that one yet.

And congrats! For a new seamstress these are impressive. Great job!
