I am such the blogger bum. I work two jobs now and it seems impossible to ever take a picture of any of my sewing projects. I happen to have called off work today so I could do this dress for my granddaughter who has a christmas party at school. The picture does not do the dress justice. The fabric is stretch velvet, deep purple with glitter all thru it. I did narrow the sleeves and there is a variation on where the embellishment is added to the dress. She was so excited and could not sleep all night because she knew I was diligently trying to get the dress done in the middle of the night.!!!

This skirt and top are from simplicity.
This is my own creation or TNT. I glued studs to the top part of the dress.
This is simplicity and I used one directional fabric. I cut it wrong but could easily turn the panels of the skirt in the correct direction
The pants are simplicity and the top is burda.
The jacket is Vogue and the dress is simplicity.
This is Rosa wearing her own creation
The jacket is Vogue and I think the skirt is simplicity

I did have a fashion show on May 7, 2011 for the Daughter's Tea but the pictures did not come out well. I am trying to get the pictures that were taken by my pastor so I will upload those shortly. In the meantime we can enjoy the wonderful styles and colors that Versace brings this spring!!! Also,Lace is suppose to be the new trend for the Spring, all different colors of lace.
Here is lace in two colors, but we know black and white lace are always popular. I think I need to make a lace dress for the summer!!!

Own creation. I draped it on the dressform and hand stitched the gathers and machine stitched the hem and the one armhole. I will probably try this again with different tucks to see what I can come up with. This was fun.!!

I apologize for the picture. Actually, none of my pictures seem to be the best my camera could take. I think I need to find out how to actually use my camera. Anyway, the belt is the first I have ever made and it is my own design. I think I need to look at some patterns to learn exactly what materials to use, but for my first belt I think it's ok. The fabric underneath the jacket is just wrapped around the dress form( I call her "Lilly").

I made this jacket last year in beige. But I realize now I would use a black one more often. The beige one I serged the seams but this one I am using a felled seam because the seams in the hood show on the outside. I think it will look alot better.
