ColeV46, that is stunning! Love it!
ColeV46- Lovely dress. I'm a sucker for a late 30's pattern.
I made this for our Holiday Lunch at work. I made a muslin of the blouse which fit fine but the actual blouse cuts under the arms. I used a tracing wheel for both the muslin and final blouse so I know they are exactly the same.
Beautiful outfit, deadpandiva, and if it doesn't fit perfectly that's certainly not obvious to me! I really love the neckline on it, and the Christmassy colours. Great work.
Nice outfit! I love the neckline on the top!
How fun to see some holiday dresses! Unfortunately, I haven't made it out of the kitchen yet. Here's a taffeta apron I did up for this month's apron challenge. More details on my blog http://willowhomestead.blogspot.com/2011/12/apron-challenge-december.html
You look great! Maybe you didn't clip your armhole seams? Sometimes that helps alleviate the straining.
BoPeep, that is the cutest apron ever!
lol Thanks, kamikat! Cute but frivolous! Was a spectacular way to use up silly trims though. And maybe I'll actually wear sometime.
Everyone makes such gorgeous clothes! My last project was a lot more low key. A brown A-line skirt. i used the bottom half of one of my 1940's dress patterns and it worked out very well.
Beautiful. Did you buy the fabric online? I have the hardest time picking out the right fabric. Yours is perfect.
I got this from Needle & Thread in Gettysburg, not much of a website but a big selection in store. I do most of my vintage fabric shopping at re-enactor fabric sutlers (like Wm Booth Draper and Burnley & Trowbridge). Their fabrics are so much nicer than what I can usually find!
While I love this thread so much, I find yet another pattern I must obsess over and buy. Nice work, MissAmelia. The dress is beautiful and the fabric is terrific. The teal/brown combination is one of my favorites.
My goodness. You're all so clever. It must be so tempting to make yourselves new clothes all the time with such skills. I don't think I'd get anything else done!
I really do not like wrapping presents. I am just plan bad at it. My solution was to use contractors paper and sew some fabric around the edge.
I LOVE it!! I have 2 large gifts to wrap and I was thinking muslin bags!!
Finally got pictures of the dresses I've made recently, so here's a few! The first and last I patterned, while the other two are from original patterns.
Wow cole those look great! Great job with the pattern making!
Wowza, they really are incredible!
Beautiful! My favorite is the first one (I'm a sucker for contrast detailing). Your collar points are spot on! Well done!
