Here's a couple of my recent sewing projects...

This was a reconstruction of a fleamarket-find Smiley It cost me 3€, and I love the colours! Smiley

This is made with pattern no 112 from Burda 2/13. Love it!

This is actually not a dress, just a square of sheer farbric with a hole and some ribbons Cheesy Perfect for those steaming hot days...

More pics and stuff you'll find from my blog: http://www.senkuteet.blogspot.fi/2013/06/kirppiskauhtanasta-kevyeksi-kesamekoksi.html
In Finnish only, sorry!

Great work!
I love all three of them, but the first one (that you made out of a flea market find) is my favorite. The colours look great on you and you did a perfect job on reconstructing it. It is very flattering.

Lovely work!!  I do like the square, with a head hole.  It looks very breezy.

They are all pretty! You just convinced me to try 112 from Burda 2/13:)
