Hi everyone! Just thought I'd show you what I've made over the last month, firstly this strawberry print dress.







Secondly, I made this skirt with fabric I designed from Spoonflower. I ordered the fabric in the basic quilting cotton, & it is pretty good, a bit thin (so I did line the skirt), but the print turned out great!

Sorry I don't have the greatest angles/close ups, these photos were taken primarily for my blog Smiley Constructive critiscm welcome!

Oh & I didn't use a pattern for either of these, , just sort of made it up as I went along, but they were pretty simple Smiley

Both are so pretty and so much fun.  I would love to see you with your hair pushed behind your back to better view the lovely bodice(s).

I just checked out your blog and you wear the loveliest outfits!!!!  AND your fabric prints are the BEST!

Oh my goodness!  Those are freaking adoreable!  You did such an amazing job on them.  The style, fabric choice and everything is awesome.  I wish I could sew something like that.

I get tights from http://www.welovecolors.com/

I'm 5'4" and wear a 24 and they fit me with no problems.  You might want to try them.  I don't know what their international shipping is like but you can always have it sent to me and I can send it to you.  I don't mind.  I have an Etsy store so I do a lot of shipping anyways.

Where did you get the strawberry fabric?

Were you happy overall with spoonflower?  I've heard their basic cotton needs a lining before.
