Below are my most recent sewing projects



The pattern is a misses 12-18 and with my measurements I should be somewhere around a 20, so I changed the pattern, adding a couple inches here and there.

I fell in love with this whimsical fabric. I've been really into yellow these days.

I shouldn't have changed the size of the dress, I think the 18 would have fit me fine. It was really hard to get the dress to fit once I made it bigger, and to make it symmetrical as possible. These pictures makes the dress look a lot longer that what it is, but it's just past my knee. The notions listed on the back of the pattern says to get a 14 inch zipper, next time I think a 10 inch or less would be best.

Dance dance dance. I find dresses to be a lot harder that pants to do, this is my first successful dress. Of course my first dress was for a different person who didn't fit my dressform... so it was difficult to keep in mind the sizing. I do have plans on using this pattern again, but I'll keep the size 18 and see how that goes.

This pattern is great and easy.

I liked the design of the fabric for the browns and pinks and the blue that pops out. It's kind of old lady, but I think with the cut of the shirt it adds a bit of a nostalgic flare.

I didn't change this pattern and I used the smallest size on the pattern, a 20W. I've never worked with "W"s, I think they mean the pattern is for bigger and taller people. I had to size everything down to fix the length of my torso, but it was very easy to do that. The arms open up quite a bit underneath so a chemise must be worn with this pattern, or have longer sleeves, but that would make it looks sloppy, I think. I'll definitely use this pattern again, and almost did before I decided to work on a costume tonight!
