Hi Guys,

 It has been a while since I've posted here, so I figure I'd show you some projects I've done lately. I also have some questions, any feed back would be nice, and my bf would appreciate it too- I keep on asking him questions that he just doesn't comprehend ("should I bring this seam in?"..... "uh.. sure"), poor guy.

this was made from one of my boyfriend's old shirts.

I may have to mess a little with this dress- I've lost some weight since I originally made it.

Okay, Thanks for looking, and I hope you have a nice day,

Should you bring the seam in? I think it looks lovely the way it is. Unless it has one of those fun habits of "catching the wind" if you know what I mean, you probably don't need to bring the seam in. (And it doesn't look like it would.)
Great work on everything. I absolutely love the dress Cheesy

I love the 3rd dress! I like the contrast between the fitted bodice and the flared skirt. But then, I'm a sucker for big skirts!
Well done.
as for the seam on the first skirt, it looks fine to me.

The shirt is so cute! Also, your boyfriend must have much more flair than a lot of guys. My boyfriend only wears three colors: blue, khaki, and black. Never orange prints...sadly...
