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.
I originally draped it on my dress form in…
elneenya added the project Silver Satin Gown
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…
elneenya added the project Fun Plaid Holiday Gown
This was another gown I made for a store display at the high-end fabric store where I used to work. We were dressing a holiday-themed window, and needed an eye-catching dress to be the centerpiece!…

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…

I agree with oonaballoona — I’m about to die from the cuteness of those fishies! Well done — This is an adorable outfit!
elneenya commented on the project Swirling Seams Gown
It was a lot of work, but worth it. I love how it turned out. I even brought this dress (and this model) with me to my last Project Runway audition, and it receive…

Thank you so much for the compliments!
Everyone here is so encouraging and it’s nice to get feedback from people who actually understand the process!
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!

Thank you for the kind words! I actually didn’t go to design school, so that’s quite a compliment! I was just a bored kid in a small town who needed a hobby, I guess, and s…

Thank you for all your kind words about my creations!
elneenya added the project Swirling Seams Gown
I made this gown for a design competition earlier this year (which I didn’t win). Designers were instructed to submit sketches to enter the contest, and the top 10 designers were selected, based on…

MJB14, I really liked your version! And I saw your comments about how you were having trouble e-mailing your photos! I hope someone on the burdastyle team is listening and does something for you!!<…
elneenya added the project Fairytale Wedding Gown
I made this a few years back when I was working at a high-end fabric store. They asked me to make a wedding gown for store display using that new iridescent taffeta, and this is the result! They st…

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

elneenya commented on the project Like Jackie O
So cute! It fits you well, and your choice of fabrics makes it so versatile! Very nice job!
elneenya commented on the project Pillowcase Dress
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!
elneenya commented on the project Pants for my sweetie
These pants are great! I like the detail at the knee. I might have to make a pair for me! Nice work!
elneenya commented on the project Stripe Experiment Dress
Wow! Thanks everyone!
I created this on a whim one night by draping some muslin on a dress form. I just kept folding and manipulating until it layed smoothly, marked it up and started sewi…
elneenya commented on the project Purple Party Dress
Ghainskom – Yes, I did get it back, and the adjustments to make it fit me wouldn’t be too laborious … I just haven’t done it yet. I guess I need to find a party to go…
elneenya added the project Purple Party Dress
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…

elneenya added the project Stripe Experiment Dress
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.
The entire dres…
