Here are a couple of pieces I made recently.

Black Dress: Supersoft, thick black knit fabric.  My own design.  I just realized all my great mirror shots cut out the skirt, so... it hits about mid-knee, a little higher with a belt.

I wanted a "little black dress" that was comfy and modest, but definitely still pretty.  I got what I wanted and it fits perrrfectly.  Love it, but what do you think?  Wink 

I originally designed it to wear just plain, like so...

I love how it drapes and how the ruffles turned out.

I also discovered that I can wear it other ways with this belt I have.  This way makes me think of a formal luncheon or something.  I never go to formal luncheons, and will probably never wear it like this.

But I DO like it this way, with the belt low-slung, more fun, kinda.  What do you think?  Which way do you like it? (if you do like it, haha)

White Top: Semi-sheer cotton.  The sleeves tie into little bows, but I couldn't tie them myself.  Please use your imagination.  Smiley  Oh, it started as a BBW pattern, but I ended up doing quite a bit of modification.  I'll do a bit more before I make it again, which I plan to.  I like the style for spring and summer.

Opinions and questions are great!  Thanks for looking!

I love the dress.. it looks very versatile. I really love how it looks with the belt low-slung. And who says it has to be a formal luncheon to wear it the other way? You could wear that anywhere.  Smiley

Love the black dress!  It looks so comfy, yet very chic.  I think it would look great with a fancy necklace, something beaded, perhaps?  It could look very elegant.
The belt makes it look more casual, so you can have a look for day, then change it easily to something to go out in the evening!

I love both of those items! The black dress does look very versatile, it can be comfy and casual since it's knit or dressy with the right belt and jewelry. The fabric you used on the white top is really cute, and it looks like it fits you really well.

I have a top that is similar to the black dress that I've wanted to recreate (the yoke/gathered part is pretty much identical!). I think you really put it in the right spot too, it's not too high or too low. Great job on both!
