    This is the original version of my striped dress, before I realized how rad it would look in stripes, and before I modified the upper bodice.

    Eaa28388b9e168df6497a30b5899bf5a77e51b69_listing

    I found this fabric at my local discount fabric warehouse (the kind of place where you really have to dig to find anything good). It’s a silk Duchess satin that would usually retail for about $60 p…

    Hi Mariaa—

    Thank you for the kind words about my purple dress! I do draft all my own patterns and do all my own sewing. Most of my designs come from a combination of draping on my dre…

    elneenya commented on the project My cloth pads

    Aren’t they bulky to wear? Do they stay in place? Does that button get in the way? Hmmm …
    Might have to try this. Thanks for the inspiration! Very smart!

    Ooh! I really like this! I like what this pattern does to the stripes. Though, I guess I always like stripes … ;)

    Wow—this turned out great! What a good idea. My niece turns 5 next week, and I’m trying to make her a few quick school outfits for her birthday. I could do a lot with this idea!

    I made this to fit model for a fashion show (which is why it doesn’t fit me). This silk taffeta was originally cream with that wide black floral border print. Actually, it was a very old piece whe…

    Another experiment with stripes. I had made a variation of this dress in a solid red, but I knew I wanted to showcase the unusual seams a little more. So I tried a stripe.
