McCall's 5984-Work in Progress

This is one of several projects I am working on. I love this jacket. The fabric is a two tone taffeta, gray and black. I can't wait to finish this one. I wanted it done for the fashion show, but it is too much detail work and I don't like to rush sewing.

Vogue 8278 - altered top

I cut the sleeves and punched holes and strung cording thru the holes. I hope to make a pair of jeans with this outfit. It's the plan anyway.

This dress is view c. This was the last minute easter dress. My granddaughter was extremely grateful. She picked her own fabric. I am still vacuuming glitter off the floor!!

This is from last summer but it does fit her better this year. I made two, maybe one day I will post a pic of the other one!!!

This was a little tough for me because of the sleeves. It took me several attempts to get them right.
