    Color me green with envy! I imagine it's a highlight of your life (it would be of mine)?

    Well really I was just worried the whole time I would say something stupid like "I have straycat strut as my ring tone".

    I havn't been able to get to my sewing machine for months now due to studying. I so miss sewing and wish I could find some time to do just a little bit. I started sewing a 1940's Acadamy dress months ago and its just sitting there looking at me and saying " sew me, sew me"......

    Thanks hailey and kamikat. I tend to sew wide waistbands more often than narrower ones. They act like a waist cincher (covering my stretch marks so I can wear cropped tops) and don't tend to "cut in" as the day wears on. Nothing worse than having to open the button on skirt after dinner! lol

    hailey- That dress is adorable and clever. I love it.
    BoPeep-Beautiful work as always.
    You are so talented thedanu. The only thing I can make with out a pattern is a dirndle skirt.
    Amazing work from everyone.

    I am proud of this dress. I took a ton of pictures of the whole process. I wish the skirt fit better but I'll fix that next time. I think I've lost weight since I made the dress.

    I agree believe it or not it looks even better in person, I saw Miss DPD wearing this at Imelda May and she was a knock out.

    Thanks Black Dahlia. I wish I could have spent more time on the bolero but I ran out of time.
    Land-O-LakesGal- One day I hope to be able to say more than 3 words to you in person. :)

    Dead Pan Diva - what a wonderful dress and you wear it well. What a knockout! May I ask what pattern you used for this?
