I haven't posted much here lately as Keena Smiley was so kind to get me addicted to Tumblr where I spend most of my online life these days.  I also have been working on opening my own clothing site which will be open very soon!  

But I wanted to show off some fun and easy little outfits I made for myself recently.  First was a simple tube dress with an elastic top and halter straps.  I used it for a costume as a sexy Hamburglar. Robble Robble!  But it works well for going out as well.  Also its easy to hide the straps and have it just be a tube dress. I made the bracelet and hair bow as well. Smiley

And in this second outfit I made the crop top with some amazing fabric I found at Joanns and the black skirt as well.

I adore the second outfit!  The first one is cute but the second is in my favorite colors  Smiley I think I'll be hitting Joann's come payday to see if I can find that top material!

Both are beautiful!!  I love the color combo in #2 - and also love that your costume can also be regular going-out clothes. 

I peeked at your other posts - you are so creative and an accomplished seamstress!  Thanks for showing that anyone can be cool, confident and sexy (Hamburgler or not)!

I love that material you used for the top! Making separates that coordinate into outfits can be challenging and I love how you accessorize to complete!

Gorgeous stuff! Hooray for the Hamburglar...I remember him from my childhood, but I guess he's not a good role model for today's "politically correct" children, eh? Makes a wonderful costume Smiley
