I am currently studying for a BA in fashion design so, in our sewing class we are following patterns just to practice technique, and here are our first two projects.

Skirt - Simplicity 4283

I have to say, I really picked a bad fabric for this. It's a stretch poplin and the drape is so wrong for the shape of this skirt. But I love the color! I think it will look really cute with a petticoat under it and a corset on top.. Smiley So it will be good club wear. I may add more lace (like that around the bottom of the yoke) to the bottom of the skirt, I haven't decided.

Dress - Simplicity 4014

I love this fabric. But it was really hard to sew! The color is so yummy. The photos make it look super puckery at the seams ,and I will say it is a tiny bit puckery but meep, the photos make it look terrible. The fabric drapes so beautifully and I love how it feels just moving around in it, super slinky. I had to take in the top of the dress about an inch on each side!! Everyone in the class ended up taking in the top, or most people anyhow, the pattern is cut kind of weird. Supposedly for an average of a B-cup but it seems way too large for that Smiley

I got the fabric on the clearance aisle and right beside it was a PERFECTLY MATCHING gray and pink plaid!! So I bought it to make a matching coat that is included in the pattern as well. I don't know when I'm going to have time, but someday I am.

Anyhow, that's all for now. Smiley Next we're making some god awful pants in class, so I doubt I'll be posting images of those. :p
