A couple of months ago, my bf offered to take pictures of my un photographed dresses. And I couldn't refuse =] BUT I made myself a promise...that I would finish three dresses before letting him take any pictures. Well, two months later, I finally got around to taking the pics... I had made the dresses in a manner of weeks, but med issues kept me from posing. With no further ado, my dresses!
Dress #1 (made my my old curtains...that I made, too, lol) It was meant to be a mock up for a dress I wanted to make, but fell in love with it. I LOVE the sweetheart neckline and the way it fits juuuuust right =]
Dress # 2 ... My Easter dress =] Funny story about this dress... The day before Easter, I was looking for a dress, and found a super cute dress at Macy's on SALE! =D BUUTTT =[ The zipper was dead. I asked for a discount on it because of the zipper, but they didn't agree with me. So, 15 min before Joannes closes, my wonderful bf, who took me dress shopping in the first place, took me to pick out some fabric. I stayed up till 3 AM making this dress!
Anyways, it's a cotton floral (tiny, tiny flowers) fully lined with -sigh- Egyptian cotton.
I used a pattern for this one, but I can't remember which. If someone wants to know, though, I'll dig it up =]
Yes, that's my baby by my feet =]
Dress #3 Made out of some weirdly stiff-ish cotton fabric. I am quite pleased with this one. I used the same pattern as I did with my Easter dress, but altered it for the halter. Took maybe 2 hours =] And it's NOT see-though =]
Wish I had a better pic of the bodice... But you'll have to do with this:
Dress #4 My NEW little black dress made of stretch satin.. I made this to wear to a theatre performance the day OF the performance. And it was a hair too small =[ So I sewed in these super skinny strips of fabric on both sides. I actually like it better like this than before =] Everyone loved it =]
Dress #5 I've already posted this dress on craftster, but the pics weren't 'artistic enough', so I'm giving you guys some better ones, lol. Made this dress out of some remnant fabric... It probably took less than 30 min to make, measuring, cutting, and all. It's my bfs favorite =]
Welll... That's all! Comments?
