yeah. i think i might have posted here once... i have a tendency to lurk and leave randumb comments, but i get too distracted to take pictures of my finished work.


all are variations from some new look pattern i got at wal-mart, with enough modifications so that they're not total rip-offs. no action shots because they're all a little larger than what i normally wear

dress #1
this one was more of an experiment... i thought it would be a good idea to line it in yellow? the trim is from a bedsheet i bought awhile back that seemed like a good idea until i unfolded it at my house and discovered the entire middle was threadbare and transparent. praise be for the bias tape maker. i heart my bias tape maker.



dress #2

it might be a little hard to see, but the dress has brown straps that tie into a halter. and that's pretty much about all i can say about this dress.


back (those are not my feet)

dress #3
THIS IS MY FAVORITE. it reminds me of dippin' dots! there are (tiny) functional pockets (good for a cell phone or a pack of smokes), and the straps are held on by little heart buttons. i guess they only make red heart buttons, so mine are painted with pink nail polish. my mother recently introduced me to a method of applying bias tape (once again, i love ya) so that no stitches show... it looks really fancy, but it's done by hand and takes for-ev-er. the bottom is also trimmed in pink bias tape, but apparently i was too excited to bother getting that in the photograph.



detail of the bustline, so you can see what i'm talking about.

sorry my dressform blends in with the background... i painted the room red before she became a part of the family.
feedback is appreciated!

I love them all, particularly the last one.
