1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / White "paper-bag" skirt! on: October 26, 2012 10:29:16 AM
This has got to be my most favorite thing I've ever sewn.

I used this pattern tutorial to make the pattern - http://www.adventuresindressmaking.com/2010/07/long-awaited-paper-bag-waist-skirt.html#.UIrH0sXLTG8 - not only was it easy to follow, the results were fabulous. All of Adventures in Dressmaking is worth a read-through, from tutorials to inspiration

Here is the skirt! There's pleating in the front and back, and belt loops (one in the back and two in front), and an invisible zipper along the left side.

Comments appreciated!

This one has gathered sleeves - my first time ever doing sleeves! This one was less work than the other 99 cent pattern I posted about, but I love them both equally.

Awesome! Your friend is going to love this so much, I know I do!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Fun, easy dress with pockets and piping! on: October 26, 2012 10:22:37 AM
Over the summer, I found a couple of 99 cent patterns at Wal-Mart in the States. Here is my first attempt!
The pattern called for the binding to be turned inward, but I thought that having it facing out added to the overall appearance. The dress isn't lined or anything, it's very simple. There's some piping in the top of the dress and the back, but I have no pictures of the back. This dress was so easy and I would make dozens of these if I had the time!

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Summer Dress - In the Wintertime??? on: January 20, 2012 05:37:47 PM
I made this a little while ago over winter break and I thought I'd share it! I used Simplicity Pattern 3823. It's fully lined, eyelet fabric, and there's light boning along the back. A zipper down the side and a halter-top tie closes it up. There's several pleats at the front as well as at the back.

I'd appreciate any critiques or criticisms Smiley Also, if anyone has tips for getting the zipper to lie a bit flatter along the side, that would be much appreciated as well.
