Between draping class  and a fundraiser fashion show projects I haven't been able to work on as much for myself as I would like.  I have managed a few other projects. Some I can't post yet because these pieces were made for me to wear on my plus size pin up site and I'm not sure if they are totally forum appropriate.  But one in particular that is PG enough to show that I am proud of is an asymmetrical hoodie that I made for my trip to Wisconsin.





I also made some DOTS candy boxers/pajama shorts for my dad for christmas.  Its his favorite candy and he lives in shorts.



Finally I entered a fundraiser fashion show here in Portland.  You sign up and get a paper grocery bag full of random fabrics to make whatever you want out of for a model to wear on the night of the fundraiser.  There is a silent auction on all items to raise money for local charities.  This is my first competition with sewing so I am really nervous but am so excited to see how much this event will raise!  This is my piece on my model Crystal.

Very fun! Love the asymetry. You can post pretty much anything here, if you're worried someone might be offended you can use the mature image tag.

I really like that asymmetrical hoodie. Looks great on you, and so does the pink paper grocery bag dress. That kind of sounds fun to do, that's an interesting way to challenge your creativity.

Very nice draping on that bodice, and nice pattern matching on the hoodie!  Cool

Thanks!  I don't think I want to work with stripes for a while.  That is SO frustrating to match it all up perfectly.  I appreciate it coming form such a talented lady.
