so i have been forgetting to take pictures of some of the recent stuff i have made and finally i went on a picture rampage...aka i get dressed and say " hunny bunny could you take pictures of me?"

pictures also make me very uncomfortable when i am the only one in the shot so i apologize for the funny faces!

first the butterfly dress. i found some awesome debbie mumm fabric that reminded me of clothes from when i was a kid. so with some whimsy i came up with this. the giant bow is actually sewn into the seam (yay for no falling corners!) there are also pleats around the entire skirt (i burnt myself three times with the iron) and fully lined



BACK (there isnt actually a ripple in the zipper it was just the way i was standing i promise)





i love the pictures of girls in high waisted shorts and tops at the beach so i took some inspiration from that a came up with some beach attire. the top fits really nicely but looks like it has a bit of a gap in the picture. just the angle (i disrupted the hubby while he was laying down reading)





now the booty shorts. i didnt make the pattern for these. i used the free one from Collete Patterns. i like it enough to use it again but i had a few mini complaints. there was one seam that didnt match correctly by about an inch, but it was easily fixed. i will definetely use it again since they do turn out supper cute (though if you are uncomfortable about the largeness of your derier you probably shouldnt make these, as you can see from the increase in my already large rear end)







comments and critism always welcome!

thanks for looking

i used a pattern for the booty shorts (there is a link to it in the post) but for the dress and swimming suit i made a pattern myself. i wanted them to look more "custom made" and less "homemade" so i added the small  detials like topstitching everthing and a full lining and such. i really should get some better pictures of everything though haha

I'll have to make those shorts someday. They'd be PERFECT for roller derby "public panties".
