Okay, I keep alternating on projects, but when I sort through the mess of all my swaps stuff and things my dad wants me to make my brothers, then I'm going to focus on me for a little while.

I found a drawing project I want to work on this year! I drew it during math class. Tongue During the final. Tongue ...But I was exempt. Teehee.

Sorry if it's faded or anything. She's wearing a dress, and the hand in front of her isn't holding anything inappropriate like a towel. Just a pose. I just haven't filled it in yet. I've worked a little bit on her hair since this pic was taken.  Smiley

Sorry, I tried to take a close-up of her face... and the pencil reflected the flash... but it might give you a LITTLE better detail... maybe. My goal is to finish the picture, and photo copy it so I can color one. :3

(P.S. There is a spiderweb design in her eye, but the shine made it unrecognizable.)
This is a WIP inside out vest alteration. I'm going to count this as one of my "make two or more things from my patterns." Because I wouldn't have been able (or wouldn't have wanted to try) to make alterations. But I want to turn it into a totally new and AWESOME vest.
...Went a little pin crazy.

A little more...

The vest looks tight, and it is, I just want to get a basic pattern down, so I can make another mock up, before I make the real thing out of the fabric I'm looking at. Smiley
I made it out of semi-decent cotton material in case I can make it decent enough to keep.

What do you guys think? Smiley

I think it looks great!  Are you going to wear it over a collared, long sleeve button down?  I would Smiley

Probably. Either that or I'm going to make a poet shirt to go underneath it. The pattern came with a poofy shapeless dress for underneath, and then the vest would define it.
If I get my way with it, you guys won't know what pattern it came from. Butterick 3906, btw. :3

I love vests and think it would be very cute--it does look snug, though, if you are going to try to fit it over a t-shirt or blouse or if you line it--maybe when you cut it from the fabric you want to use, increase the seam allowance?

I like the drawing--looks like anime...

Yep and yep. I was going to increase the seam allowance by a whole 1/4 inch once I've got it all down pat.

And it is anime. ...Ugh... I hate how whenever I fix a picture with the rotate button, it's still sideways and it stretches! It looks really wonky. (The vest pics.)

The vest looks great! I agree its tight but, to each his own. (or Her own) I'm a busty gal so I would want my with rom to wiggle, but it looks fantastic so far.

 I really never was much of a list-maker, even for the grocery store! I tend to be inspired by the moment. But, it is a good habit to develop, and helps
when there seems to be no new flow. I'll probably stray a bit... Let's see if I can even remember what page I even started my list on!

Since my girls actually nap (knock on wood), I am going to start trying to work off my negative feedback.  Life got hectic with their early arrival.  I apologize for the inconveniences my flaking caused.
