The contents of this post are somewhat random, but it marks the beginning of an effort on my part to post some of the clothes I have made over the last couple of years.  The first is a tweed (?!) strapless dress.  I made it about 3 years ago because I like tweed and because my mother couldn't fathom what I was going to make with it.  A dress was not what she expected.  It has now become a Christmas tradition, as Christmas seems about the only occasion where you can get away with wearing a tweed strapless dress.
In the first of the 3 shots is included because it is the best photo of the fascinator I made, unfortunately it is rather a large one of my face!

Then the cape.  I made this for a friend, he's pretty brave and wears it out quite a bit.  I like it, although its the last one Ill do sewing straight lines gets pretty boring!

Hope you like them!

Everyday is a Holiday!

You look smokin' hot from head to toe in that dress! Now I know why some people wish it was Christmas everyday.

I hate to admit it, but that cape is pretty sexy too!  Smiley
