These are so cute!  And I dont think the horizontal stripes are unflattering at all...they accentuate your hourglass figure.  I love the sleeve length too, way cute!

You could cut out twice as many, make them a bit longer, and attach them to the pants as X's.

Wow...thanks, everyone!  You flatter me  0_0.

The patterns are:

Dress:  Simplicity 3507.  It's an "Inspired by Project Runway"  pattern.  You choose the style of sleeves, neckline, and pockets you want, and pin the pattern together.  It makes it confusing to buy the right amount of fabric, so I just bought a ton -_-  I bet it would be easier for more expierenced sewers though.

Skirt: McCalls M590.  Loveee this pattern.  I heard a lot of people have trouble with McCalls?  It didnt give me too much grief at all.  I ended up not putting the pleats in, and altering the belt a bit, thats my first bout with altering patterns, and it turned out well, except that the belts a bit bulky.  I'm going to make a few more from this pattern for friends though  Smiley  The fabric?  It didnt have a selvage, really, so I'm not sure what it was exactly called.  I got it on sale at Hancock Fabricks.  It's kept back with the Madras (plaid patchwork) fabrics though. 

THANK YOU ALL, again!   It means a lot to me.

Ahhh!   That pattern was the first thing I ever sewed!   Hahah...I don't agree with the packaging that it's easy though...But then, it was my first project. 
At least for me, the bias tape was a nightmare.  Did it give you any problems? 

Yours turned out wayyyyy cute though!  I LOVE the colors you chose.  I think the second is my favorite, though both are so very cute, and your alterations are lovely.  Just awesome.

Soooo, I'm new on here, and I really wanted to post something. Here's two pieces I completed over Christmas break.  I had just gone through what I percieved to be a very traumatic breakup, so I began sewing as a way to get my mind off things.  Luckily, now it's just a hobby I enjoy  Smiley
I know it's not nearly a amazing as most of the posts on here.  I'm working on getting more confident in altering patterns and making more interesting pieces.  

Anyways. First, the dress.  It's made using a Project Runway pattern...If anyone wants to know which, I'll look it up:

Aaand, the skirt:

(i know, i know.  Really pretty face. Haha)

Comments and crit. GREATLY appriciated!
