i know, i know, i haven't posted in FOREVER. actually, i haven't been on any forums at all the past few months. i haven't been sewing as much as i'd like to either.

but here are some of my recent favourite things Smiley


i love this dress so very much. especially the bright colours! & it was so easy & fun to make


it took me SO long to finish this. not because it was so hard, but after i sewed all the panels together i wasn't quite sure what else to do with it. & then i put it away & revisited it after a few months. i love how it turned out Smiley


made that skirt a while ago, but i just made that top on sunday. absolutely no forethought went into that top, i just took my favourite floral fabric & some matching pink & a long strand of sequins & improvised. & somehow that's how i make most of my best things xD

some detail shots:




another pinafore! i kinda love them. & the colours of this one are just amazing.

detail shot of the buttons:


that's it for now :p

i hope you like them! & thanks for looking Smiley

i love all the color you bring into the clothes - great job.

i do love the black and white one though - it's something i could see myself wearing.

THESE ARE SO FRICKIN ADORABLE!

Seriously, you are so talented.
The one with mismatching triangles must have taken forever! That is so complicated!
Argh!
But they are beautiful and wonderful and I cannot stop singing praises about them.
Fabulous!

These are all so lovely! My fave is the black and white one, I am a huge fan of the color scheme and of the Pattern.. I have been looking for cute dresses with diamonds/harlequin incorporated into it.

thank you! *blushes*
& it really wasn't that complicated. just really annoying to change the thread every time (all the stitching is the constrasting colour of the fabric).
