So its been a year and I finally whipped out my sewing machine! Before I was sewing everything by hand (which has its many perks but is time consuming) because I hated how I couldn't understand how to work this darn machine... But then I found the manual  Grin And realized I had to tighten my bobbin tension. So I whipped out a dress and bikini in 48 hours! Satisfaction  Smiley

Decided to make yet another little black dress:

I like how it came out,  alittle too much cleavage but I probably can fix that later on today.

How do you feel about the overall dress?

Also I decided to make my first bikini top! It came out a little too small being that I didnt use a pattern. But for my first try not bad huh?

i have to work on the cleavage problem haha. I guess I dont allow myself enough seam allowance. (CL&CO being my nonexistent fashion line)
Opinions? Please and thank you.

I think the dress is cute, the style definately suits your body type.  I would wear it if it suited me that is for sure.  Very cute.  The bikini top is real good for a first try I think.  You'd have me beat lol.

Problem? What problem?  Grin

I like them the way they are. Great job!

I am learning to sew and figure skate, I've never felt more manly in my life!

I have a Singer Tradition. As for the straps. I do them by hand because they are just so small.
