I've made three new garments in the past two weeks.I just haven't had the time with my husband for a photo shoot lately. Reviews will be coming soon... I promise! Here is what I've been working on:
I made a Hilary Duff pattern! I made the sleeveless dress shown in yellow. It turned out very cute!
Next up was a little "prairie girl" skirt. I made the version shown in white. I used a gauze fabric and wrinkled the skirt as it dried. Also very cute!
And finally, I made a button up blouse. I made the one with the peter pan collar and short puff sleeves. I think it's cute but my hubby says it is "dowdy". You be the judge when I get the photos out!
Actually, I did make a fourth garment that you will not be seeing. I finally coughed up the $80 for a subsription to Burda World of Fashion magazine. My first issue was the July one. My first garment was this cute little halter top. I'll give you a quick and dirty review here. The garment worked up super fast- about two hours. But it is too skanky to wear out! I'm sure some of you will make it and it will be suitable for public viewing. However, I made mine in a very drapey silk jersey. The halter dips too low in back to wear a bra. So you can imagine what you can see from the front with no bra on- too much! If you make this one I would suggest adding another layer of fabric in the front for modesty sake. I am not discouraged by my first experience though. There are several other garments I would like to make up.
