aww beth lemme see if I could help u out,

for the top part i cut the four of it, because I wanted it lined..I  used a stretch cotton for the top, i made sure to use a sleeveless top to trace for the armhole. if you happen to have a one shoulder top laying around even better

stitched the straps, the side with the armhole and the other side i pinned to adjust, then cut off the excess and added my zip.

I cut the back and front pieces for the skirt, stitched the hems and stitched the sides together, leaving an inch at the top to fold over

between the top and the skirt is black elastic about a 2 inch band.  I sewed the elastic upside down on the outside of the top, therefore when u turn it over it looks neat and you see no thread/ stitches and vice versa with skirt, pleating it, to give it the nice bouncy-ish effect with my elastic and the end!

So its been while since I've posted! Heck since i've even sewn! But a bout of insomnia brought this cute lil dress!! Sewed it in 3 and half hours, no pattern really, just plain old averaging. The pics were taken before I added on my clip to the top of the zip and fully ironed.

7  My Summer Sewing Projects UPDATED 6/6/2010 in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by mimi007 on: May 31, 2010 09:14:20 PM
So basically I've been home bored so here are some projects i've completed

this lovely blue flower asymmetrically tiered taffeta dress  I sewed for a wedding i'm going to!
I will definitely do a tutorial on the flower this week and make a neat clutch purse to accompany it!

this lil dress recon I did for my niece! I bought this dress in a hurry about two or three years ago and it couldnt fit at the top, so i decided to cut the skirt of it and make a new top for her!  she's loving it! ps  she's crazy..cant you tell?


This was a recon from a f21 dress and a denim skirt I sew that was too huge!

what do you guys think? Huh
BTW Im looking for a good dress form, any suggestions?
