Cute! That looks like it'll be super comfy when the weather gets hot.

Now if only the weather will cooperate long enough for me to wear them all!  Of course I'll be regretting that comment come July  Wink

Thanks! Sewing clothing is totally addictive once you get started  Grin

I've been on a skirt making kick recently! I pretty much live in skirts during the summer, and having a serger makes sewing them so fast.  They're all from various patterns and tutorials, so I'll include the sources for you all.  

I intended for this one to fade from pink to white, but I didn't quite get the effect I wanted

Both of these skirts are the Saturday Market Skirt from Sewing Bits and Pieces, the free PDF pattern is available at http://portabellopixie.typepad.com/PDF/SaturdayMarketSkirtFreePattern.pdf

The Colorful Brick Road Skirt again from Sewing Bits and Pieces.  I sized it up to fit me because really, who of us isn't still a kid at heart?  P.S. doing a rolled hem on the ruffles was seriously headache-inducing.

This is the Deluxe Rectangle Skirt from Little Green Dresses

Look! Bright green pockets! These make me happy Cheesy

The Market Skirt from Made. Tutorial found at http://www.dana-made-it.com/2008/07/tutorial-market-skirt.html

I added tie pockets using this pattern: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=38097.0

Phew that was a lot! Thanks for looking & let me know what you think!

Thanks! I used McCalls 5731, but made lots of changes (no sleeves, made the skirt 4 panels instead of 6, taking out some of the 6+ inches of ease built into the pattern)

This is a costume I made for the dance studio where I work.  We have princess parties for the little ones and the adults running the party dress as the various Disney princesses.  The previous dress was a horrible store bought dress, so the recipient was VERY happy to get this one! The satin used was really difficult to get a good picture, so bear with me  Smiley

Detail shot: I hand sewed sequins to the front of the bodice and the shoulder...thingy.  Yes, that's a technical term... This one is also closest to the real color.

Thanks for looking, let me know what you think!

7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Recent projects: bracelets and necklaces on: May 06, 2011 10:23:17 AM
Here are a bunch of my recent jewelry projects.  They're made with a whole variety of materials from wood and plastic to Svarowski crystals.  Let me know what you think!

A chain and fabric flower necklace

A hodgepodge of beads... not my favorite

A bright memory wire bracelet

Another memory wire bracelet this time in school colors

A dramatic pearl and crystal necklace

Thanks for looking  Grin

Ooh, I have that skirt! Actually I think I donated it because of the weird length/fit. I always folded the waistband in half when I wore it because it was so long!  Anyway, that is an absolutely adorable way to solve that problem.  Great job!

For a fall wedding, I see those plates piled high with fruit (real or fake).  Maybe faux beaded fruit with ivy leaves placed in the gaps.  I can't wait to hear what you do with those gorgeous plates!

I know that this is a really old post, but I thought that I would throw in the way that I learned to cover up scars and tattoos for anybody that may want it. 
- first, prepare the skin with a primer (my favorite is from Smashbox)
- put some heavy concealer on the back of your hand.  The heat from your body will warm it up and make it go on smoother.
- using a makeup sponge, dab (don't rub!) a layer on, blend the edges, and let it dry.  Repeat, layering the concealer until the tattoo is covered up.
- add a layer of pressed powder to help everything stay put.
I believe that Sephora makes a heavy concealer made for covering up tattoos and scars.  Also, Kat Von D recently came out with a concealer just for tattoos.
