Although I haven't posted much in the craftster forums, I've been a longtime creeper, and every time I have creative block, I come to craftster to get me going again. So I'd love to start sharing my work with you, and hopefully give a little bit back to the community that I've gotten so much inspiration from! I have a few tutorials up on my blog, and several other clothing projects I've made.

I'm self taught, so I'm sure that some of you will look at my projects more better and more efficient ways of doing things. If so, constructive criticism is more than welcome!

This is a long, six gore skirt with deep pockets. On my blog, I have a tutorial for drafting the skirt pattern yourself. Because there are no sewing instructions, it's geared more towards intermediate seamstresses, those who already have a basic idea of the order of garment construction. Follow the link if you're interested. http://www.mollytov.com/six-gore-skirt/

This lace dress refashioned from an old tablecloth is the first tutorial I ever made. It's incredibly simple to put together. Super basic, perfect for a beginning sewer. http://www.mollytov.com/tablecloth-dresstutorial/

A thick jersey miniskirt with gathering up the sides - another good beginner project, especially for people who want to try working with stretch fabric. http://www.mollytov.com/gathered-miniskirt-tutorial/

This faux fur scarf looks pretty luxurious considering how inexpensive it is to make. I might categorize it as a beginner/intermediate project, just because it's a little tricky to wrap your mind around getting the right side out after sewing the tube. Other than that it's a breeze Wink http://www.mollytov.com/lumberjack-diva/

Ooh, I love all your stuff, especially that lace dress!  Well done, and thanks for the tutorials.

Love, love, love the gored skirt.  I have several yards of a cobalt blue twill that's been sitting around waiting to be made into a skirt, but I was still fussing about which style I wanted, trying to choose between pencil, a-line, and half-circle.  Now I'm decided, it's none of the above!  Let's see if I can turn one out this weekend...

It's awesome hearing that Avrienne! Let me know how it goes. I'd love to see pics of the final result, and holler at me if you have any questions!
