Hey y'all!  It's been a while since I've posted here, so I thought...why not?  Here are a few of the pretties I've made over the past year:

October 2011

Colette's Parfait in Alexander Henry's Shibuki Dragon quilting cotton. (same fabric as the famed Dragon Dress:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=252249.0/)



Totally should have made a 1/2 circle skirt instead of the 6-gore skirt the pattern calls for - the seams totally destroy the integrity of the large border print!

April 2012

A self drafted (poly ITY?) jersey dress loosely based on Butterick 5383 (I did use the sleeve pattern outright from the pattern, though)



It's so comfy!  And very boobilicious with a push up bra.  Wink  Made it for my one year dating anniversary with my honey!

July 2012

Butterick 5778 in a rayon blend one way stretch jersey.




Would've fit a bit better in a two way stretch jersey, but I'm still happy.

And my latest creation, McCall's 6350 in a cotton border print.  This thing was a bear to fit (FIVE muslins!), but I think it turned out pretty well:





There are more details on the last two dresses in my blog (see signature).  Thanks for looking!

Those are all beautiful.  Color me impressed; I would make all my own clothing if I was as good at it as you are!

They're all beautiful, but I am in SO MUCH LOVE with the last dress.  Definitely worth the madness of five muslins! Cheesy
