I love his work.  You might like my brother's work.  He mostly uses ink pen on paper, sometimes airbrush, and computer images.  Here is his  website

Sorry about the ads.  Check out the galleries on the left.  The color gallery is my favorite. 

Enjoy and thanks for posting your bro's work.

...only problem is, i tried it on (admittedly without the zipper, but still...) and mine seems to be too big under the arms too. soooooo.... how can i fix it?

I ended up with the same problem. 
I tried the dress on and had my hubby pin it where it looked like it should go. 
There was about an inch and a half of fabric overlapping where the zipper is to be placed.   Be sure to taper it as you go down the back or you might not have enough room for waist and hips. 
You might want to pin the zipper in place to see what it will look like. 
I did not take it in enough though, and have a little bit too much fabric under the arms, but otherwise it fits ok. 
I am going to have to reposition the straps on mine. 
They are too close to my arms and keep slipping off the shoulder. 
That will be a challenge to fix. 
Next time I make this dress, I am going to position the darts according to my own measurements. 
They are a little too close together. 

Hope everything works out for ya, kabili.

Love love LOVE it!  Beautiful job.  You are a doll-making goddess.  And she is definitely a goddess.  Keept it up!

Oh, and I love Moore, too!  Gotta read more of him.  And love the worm and other crazy creatures in Labyrinth, too.

:0 Very awesome!  And it looks so neat and lined up in the back.  I wish I was that neat.  Great job.  I am sure my hubby would get a kick out of this since he loves nintendo.  Post pics after the quilt is finished, please!

Ok, so I just finished this project.  I just got a new machine yesterday (yehaw!!!!) and finished it today.  Since I was so excited to be sewing again, I would say it took me about 5 hours to do (cutting and all).  I really hate sizing, but a 12 worked out ok for me except I had to adjust the top a little.    And the zipper turned out lovely.  Here are some pics (let me know if they are too big):


And a close up of the fabric:

I used bias tape for the ribbon.  The bug fabric was a $1 a yard.  Mine kind of bows out under the arms because it was too big in this area.  One thing I think is weird:  one of the pattern piece #3 is either 6,10,14.  The other is 8, 12, 14.  Maybe it was a matter of fitting them all on the page or something.  Weird.  I also might go over some of the seams with my serger to finish them. 

Hope this inspires some of you.

...I love the fabric, where in berkeley is this store? if you just know the name and street it would be great, i'd love to check it out.


The store is called The East Bay Depot for Creative Reuse at 6713 San Pablo near Ashby.  They usually have all sorts of fabric.  You WILL have to dig. 

Have fun!

Brian Froud might also be a good inspiration for faeries.

I really like the bag.  I also took a look at your other stuff.  Those fabric bowls are beautiful.  You are definitely talented.  Keep up the good work!
