It's been so long since I've posted my clothes here (I missed craftsters!!!) so this way I have a bunch of old and new things to post.

I don't really use any patterns, most of the time I just take an existing garment that sits well on me, I trace the parts I need (like shoulders for example), and than make all the needed changes - width, length, etc.

These two shirts are very much alike, only the neckline and the length are different.

This one can be worn both as a shirt and as a dress.

Another shirt that I like to wear with a belt, it's made with a wrinkled sheer fabric.

This is a jersey summer dress (can be worn in the winter as well, paired with some tights).

This is my latest summer dress, super easy to make since it doesn't really follow your figure.
It's made with a sheer fabric so I wear it with a black tube dress underneath.

The next two dresses are made almost the same way the yellow dress but they are made with a Lycra (the stretchy fabric, hope this is the right name), this way the are tighter.
The black dress is longer and can be worn in different lengths, I fold it on the bottom any way, so it looks good both ways.

This is an evening dress ( the most complicated I've made so far), it has a collar (screwed it up) and some gathered sleeves (which are very uncomfortable since the fabric doesn't stretch). But overall I'm very pleased with it, and I guess the imperfections aren't "that" noticeable (at least I hope so).

Thank you for taking a look, let me know what do you think!

Those are awesome dresses! You are so talented. I'd love to own any one of those dresses, and I'm particularly fond of the yellow one shoulder one. Superb!

I love the black dress; what a fabulous design!

I love them all.  Especially the lycra ones.  I wish I had a shred of your talent! Cheesy

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.

These are all great designs! If you don't mind sharing, what kind of fabric did you use for the first dress? I love the sweatery look it has

I think the stripey tunic is my favorite, but I also love the black dress, the yellow dress, and the gray dress! Cute stuff that I would totally wear!

Crafty? Like a fox my friend. Like a FOX!

The dresses look so unique and pretty. The black and white one with the print is my favorite! Smiley

I LOVE the stripey shirt/dress.  Quick question - what is the fabric?  Jersey I assume...  Where did you buy it?  I never find anything good at Joann's and I live about a two hour drive from one so I don't get there often to check out the inventory.

These are all gorgeous! I particularly like the evening dress and the last grey dress... It looks very professional-chic!

I would love to do a personal swap for stuff for my lonely, empty walls!
