Hi everybody,
me and my sewing machine have been very busy the whole winter long. Yesterday I've posted some of the stuff I made (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=346130.0), today it's time for some more Wink






Next one is rather for going out with my boyfriend (and for sure not WITHOUT him Wink) than for going to university, although I know few of my profs had nothing against such school uniforms  Cheesy

You know that typical french maid uniform? So I wanted my dress to look a bit like that. And think I seceded Wink






And here a little detail form the front of the dress.
I found the motive in internet and painted it by myself on the dress. I'm really happy with the way how it looks like Smiley



I hope you liked that, opinions, questions, etc. are very welcomed.
Greetings to all of you!

Very pretty. I love the black dress. The key hole detail is brilliant and the silhouette is perfect for you.

I really love the first dress!  Did you use a pattern or did you just make it up as you went along?

I think those are both so pretty! I especially like the white satin on the sleeves and collar on the black one, something about the shininess really contrasts well with the rest of it.

They are both so gorgeous. The second is amazing, I'm in love with it. The paintwork is awesome.
