Hi all ^_^

This month I've been making quite a few things, mostly baby stuff for my expecting cousins, but I've also made a few pieces of clothing for myself. I'm quite hapy with how my projects have been turning out, so I thought I'd share ^_^

First off, I made an infinity dress:

I'm not 100% sure if I like the fabric, So I plan to make another in a solid color once I can get my hands on the fabric!

Then I made a knock off on an anthroplogie shirt:

I liked the shirt, but I'm way too cheap to pay 50 dollars for a shirt haha so I made one myself =) also I decided it was reversible =p

Lastly (so far) I made myself a new bikini:

I love the colors on this one =D although I think it might need ruffles or something... I made this by destroying an old bra.. it was painstaking ripping all those seams....

So, what do you think of my projects? =) I plan to make many more as well <3

I think I like your version better than the Anthro one.  I think it looks great both ways.  What exactly is going on there with the twisting and whatnot?

It's not a matter of size, but a matter of heart.

OMG, I LOVE that dress! I've been wanting a dress like that for years! how did you make it? and how do you get it to twist like it is? that's totally awesome! Wisted! *This rocks*

~Working on getting back into swaps after some crazy two years!~

Please help me with my "patchwork" station blanket! I would love to get fire department patches! Thanks!

Gorgeous. I love your anthroplogie shirt- I think it turned out better than the original.

I love the dress where did you find the pattern?? That would be a great spring/summer dress for vacation!

Megrims - thank you ^_^ I liked the twist in the original, my way was to pretty much make a yoke on the top of the shirt and twist it before I attached it. I ended up hand stitchin the front on so that the twist would remain loose and not end up flat to the shirt.

schultebunny + ChrissyCrafts - the dress was from a tutorial found here: http://rowena.typepad.com/rostitchery/infinity-dress.html Its really really easy =) though the tutorial does make it seem a little confusing. Basically its a circle skirt with two very long straps. YOu wrap those straps around your upper body in any way you can think of. If it stays up and covers your chest up you're good! you can come up with endless options. =)

mrskristina + RaraAvis - Thanks! I think I like it better than the original as well ^_^

i LOVE that top, i like yours way better than the anthroplogie one. how exactly did you do that twist on the top?

I could probably make a tutorial for the shirt if people are interested... It really wasn't very difficult

The top is so awesome! so much better than the original
