Pink Floral Dress

It's not complete yet, but almost finish.  Just a few more things to do like sew the ends of the zipper to the inside of the back.

Anyway, my sister suggested one of the styles on the simplicity website -- New Look 6146 .  She suggested the black and white one, but I don't like spaghetti straps so I made the straps wider like the blue floral dress at the bottom.

I did not buy the pattern.  Just drafted my own so it doesn't look exactly like the picture. 

So here is my version

I think the straps on the back are very ugly.  I'll wear a jacket or something over.

Yeah, the black zipper is sticking out.  I need to sew it in.

Final Look on the Purple Half Circle Dress

So I thought about it all day yesterday at work.  Decided to take out the waist band  =)
Only took me about 20 minutes total to take out the white waist band and put back the zipper.

So, white or black belt???

Purple Half Circle Dress

Again, no pattern.  I saw my sister's sister in law wearing a dress like this in one of her pictures and I said "I'm making one"
So here it is.  The back is not very nice  =(  I think I'm going to take out the band at the waist.
The front looks perfectly fine and pretty to me, but the back.  Yuck!!!
I love the half circle skirt.  Love the way it looks.

The right side is smaller than the left side.  =(

How did this happen???

My husband suggested a bow on the back.  What do you think?

Pink Vine Dress

I finished another dress.  Yahooo!!!

I saw this on

I can't put the picture up. 

Anyway, I did not buy the pattern, just liked the look and wanted to make a similar dress to that.  I have this pink fabric in my pile for a while now.  I think I have like 1.25 yards of it, bought it when Joann had the 50% off the clearance red tag fabric.  I think I paid total like $5 for it.

This dress turns out pretty nice, actually.  I like it.

Blue Green Collar Dress

Not sure what to say about this dress.  I'm not too happy about it.  I thought the invisible zipper came out right, but how come it shows a white line?  Maybe because the zipper is white???  But the seam is very close to the zipper teeth, there's no way I can get it closer.  =(

The back, around the hip area doesn't fit very well.  Like at the end of the zipper, it's a small bump.  Why???
