    Here is the Halloween costume I made for my daughter.

    And this is a skirt I recently made. A circle skirt with 8 double box pleats. It's a little heavy but perfect for winter. It's long enough to extend past the top of my boots so I can wear pants underneath for extra warmth;).

    Hello Ladies, I'm new to the forum but am a long time seamstress. This weekend I just finished up another version of one of my favorite 40's patterns, Hollywood 1032.

    @MsMarie - do you frequent the FB group Vintage Updos for Modern Ladies? You look familiar! (as much as one is able to tell on the great wide interwbz...)

    Doing great. Living the best life in Colorado, very physically active, I have a WONDERFUL boyfriend I live with and will probably marry next year, honing in on my style and creativity -- something I wasn't "allowed" to do in my last lifetime! I also have a wonderful job working with developmentally delayed adults and they keep me on my toes LOL. Great money, too.

    @Dm101 I'm digging that hat band! I've been getting a bit more into the Western motif since I started doing product photography for a Western Performance Arts supplier.

    Well, I made this in 1981 but seeing as how Karl Lagerfeld died yester-day I'm posting it. Karl Lagerfeld for Chloe Vogue pattern using Chloe designer fabric.

    Thank you! [emoji4]
    I have wanted an ammo band for the longest, I couldn't find one at a reasonable price...so I made one.
    I hope I didn't post in the wrong section.

    I'm a little late on this, as this is from Halloween. And it's not the best pic, as my young child took it. :) But my husband and I were what are often referred to as the gas mask zombies from the Dr. Who WW2 era episode arc, The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances. My husband's Dr. Constantine was easy- trousers, vest, shirt, tie, jacket. Mine, the show's WW2 era UK VAD nurse, took a little more work. I went by the nurses on the episodes. I found a suitable dress online and hemmed it shorter, made the apron and cuffs (the cuffs were from a child's white dress shirt, as I have very small wrists), the collar (also from that shirt), and the gas masks are made of craft foam and aluminum can bottoms. Incidentally, the fx team on the show couldn't find enough of the proper masks from the time, so they created their own style, so it doesn't represent any real mask from the time.

    It's been years since this episode, and long-time Whovians know it, but not one person in our neighborhood recognized it. They thought it was creepy, they thought it was apocolyptic (which it isn't! That episode has a happy ending, everyone lives!), but we had fun asking, "Are you my mummy?"
