Love the red fabric you chose...I wouldn't have thought to use the teal...but it looks great! Can't wait to see how it turns out!
Great ideas- looking forward to seeing this bloom:)
this is going to be super fun! I like your design choices ;)
Love the color combo, and the fact that you dyed the red!
Wow- great job- so when are you trying out for project runway????
Mymble I think with Project Runway, they don't like you to use patterns. I'd be lost starting from scratch. Just happy to be where I am.
engiknitter Thanks so much! I had a lot of fun with this project. I just hope it doesn't look "Christmasy" out in the daylight.
Mouseinmypocket Hmmm- yes, but keep going as you have done and you'll be drafting your own soon enough- you already are partially...great skill to have even without the stress of "Make it work people"!!!
Fantastic job! I don't think it looks "Christmasy" at all. It has more of a tropical feel IMO.
I love the outcome...very cute and cheerful!
I'm so inspired by all your dress-making! I've been looking at patterns like crazy lately trying to decide where to start (as in, what will be not too hard and at least sort of flattering)
so cute~ and what a great idea! i have some white eyelet that is a bit off white and cant brighten it ... im gonna die it and make me a dress!! yeah! i have been looking at it for days...its been in my stash...now i know what to do!! thanks!!! lets see it on you !! model the dress already!! lol!!
Amanda Try out the Colette Patterns Sewing handbook. It's what I started with. The book has 5 projects - a skirt, a top, and 3 dresses.
Justine I've been waiting for good sunny weather. It looks like it will be nice tomorrow.
Mouseinmypocket I've been thinking about getting that. I'm very unexperienced at clothes making - do you think it's ok for beginners?
Amanda it really is for beginners. The first chapter is about the basics of what you need, pins, needles and the like. The book basically assumes you know nothing. It was the very first thing I started from to learn sewing clothes.
Mouseinmypocket so sorry so long in getting back to you!1 your dress is awesome! i love it! i havent made or even died my fabric yet! lol my daughters both teach school and have me doing projects for them and making shirts for the start of school.. hope to post pictures soon!! oh well..someday i will sew for me! lol justine
