Hello all!  This is me fighting the pre-spring gloom with bright and happy clothes, perhaps a bit too close to clownish.  

Yoke dress with apron and circle skirt, all made with virgin fabric I found at a thrift store  - I always dig through the pile, I never know what I'm going to find.  The polka dot portion is actually a knit I stabilized with some light weight fusible interfacing, which I'm also sure is older than me.  







and some raglan tees, made with various bits of old t shirts


(this one actually began as a collared onesie)


(my favorite one of all!)


(the back side of the nautical star one)




(my going too fast to take a proper picture dd - you'll have to believe me there is a heart applique on the front.)

Questions and comments welcome!

Thank you all!

Aisy, you can find a pattern for it in my etsy - it's the Revolutions Frock.  I will have a tutorial for the yoke assembly up on my blog later on today too.

I don't think the clothes look clownish at all. I'm embarrassed to say that I kinda want to wear that dress--and I'm 24.  Cheesy
