    Itsalovelyday, that green dress is just terrific, and it suits you wonderfully.
    GrantFan, the same to you: very well done and what a good pick you did with that fabric!
    :thumb:

    I just made an underskirt. Nothing big, but I'm quite satisfied anyway since I usually make so many plans about what I'd like to sew but I never really do. Now for once I did make something, and so useful, too. Whenever a skirt needs that extra swing and a petticoat is too much.

    Also very useful is that new mannequin I made the other week; or actually a friend of mine made the major part of it since I could just stand there while she wrapped me in tape... :D

    Made three of these shirts for a friend who has a "team" going to a convention. I love that she wanted to add a bit of a vintage look. :D

    The top is from a 50's Simplicity pattern. The dress is a current Butterick reprint.

    Kamikat, love the green dress and that shirt is super cute with those jean capris! I think I have that dress pattern. I am sewing for the band again so I won't have time to make myself anything till I have all of their stuff done. lol

    here is a picture of one of my favorite dresses, I always feel pretty in it, and even though I love the pattern I think it's because of the print of the fabric
    [​IMG]
    And also made both of these aprons I made the one of the left is a vogue vintage re issue pattern. The "sexy fire fighter" print is an inside joke between me and my friend, and the apron I am wearing is from a different vogue re issue.

    Oh how fun GrantFan! I've been trying to get my hands on the sexy cops print (as I have a fetish for our boys in blue) but by time I saw it, it was no longer being printed. :(

    Grantfan, love your citrus fruit dress! and the belt matches just perfectly.
    In your last picture, you remind me so much of Alyssa Milano. You are so sweet!

    This isn't vintage but I am back to volunteering for the marching band again. :) The drum major asked if I would make her dress this year. :) This was an early pic that I took, I did make sure to fix that wobbly trim at the bottom. :p

    SheBear... Amazing! How does that work though, doesn't everyone have to have the same uniform?
