    Thanks for the comment! The dress was pretty straightforward, I just copied the shape of each part of a t-shirt that fit really well, except I elongated (and flared out) the front and back panels t…

    carma358 added the project Lounging Sweater
    Lounge1_listing

    I made this super comfy sweater out of a piece of knit jersey that was grey on one side and patterned on the other. I patterned it very very loosely off of another sweater that fit well

    Dorothy1_listing

    17df015ea4bea386b09e4dbbd59b4ed3ee70bd69_listing

    Paisley isn’t my favorite pattern, so it was kind of a challenge to turn it into something I liked. That said, this dress came together pretty easily. The top is basically just a tube top and the s…

    Thanks for the great comments! It’s kind of embarrassing how much I’ve been sewing lately, I think I’m just very anxiously awaiting the nicer spring weather! Beats twiddling my thumbs, I guess! Oh,…

    672e0637ef8280c0cbce33e98f9dc6f047d1fa01_listing

    This is another dress that was inspired by an Urban Outfitters dress, I made a couple changes by adding a ruffly bit to the top, making it a bit longer and adding a belt (though one reason I liked …

    The ruffle is attached, sorry for any confusion! I should have added another picture, but the part in the side-front where the ends of the ruffle meets is such a fun place to accessorize with brooches

    I made the belt in two pieces, the ends in the front are attached underneath the second set of pleats and again at the side seam (which may not be necessary)… hope that helps! If you make one, do…

    F258c73f55bc5b6780c60cc4c0ac51172f3ad613_listing

    Ugh, my serger knife ate a big hole in this dress, and it was not fun to salvage, but eventually it turned into something wearable!

    This dress pretty much turned out the opposite of what I had in mind when I started it, but I still like it! It’s a wonderful piece to accessorize with
