21  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Pink Ruffle Dress on: May 24, 2011 01:15:14 AM
So it happens that a lot of my sewing projects are made in pink fabric. I'm not quite sure how that happens, as pink probably is not the most flattering color for my skin tone, but I go back to it again and again.

I made this dress to wear on my boyfriend's birthday a few days ago. I made it on the day of in a few hours, so it has some technical "issues" but I'm happy to see a concept actually materialize as I envisioned it. A pattern was not necessary because the pieces are just different-sized rectangles. The bodice is lined and the top and waistline have elastic casings.

Thanks for taking a look! Smiley
22  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Yellow Bow Dress on: May 09, 2011 03:54:22 PM
I've been in a sewing funk lately, but I finally got around to making a new dress!

The weather has been cloudy lately, so the lighting in the house hasn't been ideal, so I need to hold off on a mannequin picture for the time being.

This dress is made from a yellow sheet set I got at Ross (cheap bedding = muslin material). I drafted the bodice pattern using McCall's M5800 for reference and borrowed the skirt piece from Christine Haynes Chic & Simple Sewing . It has bust darts and an elasticized waist. The bow is a strip of fabric sewn horizontally down the middle to the lowest part of the neckline. I tend to like bows that can actually tie, but I might use a ready-made bow for the next version of this dress.

Comments and criticisms always appreciated!

(and you can see more information about the dress on my blog: http://lovemakesthegirl.blogspot.com/2011/05/make-something-monday-yellow-bow-dress.html)

Oh, don't worry about those other people! This is amazing: the fact that you made your design a reality! A corset looks very challenging to make, too, so major props! Cheesy

Hello! I'm slowly sharing projects I made early this year in January.

These 2 dresses I made using the patterns that came with Christine Haynes Chic & Simple Sewing. It's an interesting book, great for experienced beginners. Although the instructions aren't very detailed, the projects are simple, quick, and don't require zippers!

I made this dress for my 23rd birthday. I fell out of love with the material (I think it might be best used as lining), but I love polka dots Smiley

This is my version of the "You're So Shifty" shift dress. I loved the neckline, but as a straight shift dress, I didn't think it was very flattering on me. So I inserted a casing for elastic at the waistline.

If you have any questions about the book, feel free to ask me Smiley

It's lovely! I think the design is very flattering on you. I also love the stripes!

And I personally have a love/hate relationship with zippers :/ I can use them, but they give me some pain most of the time.

I pretty much love all things nautical. Beautiful job on the dress! And the hat is Adorable!
