I have been busy sewing!!  So far this week, I have finished the purple polka dot shirt in my previous post and 3 1/2 skirts!  The first skirt was just a standard short kaki skirt.  The second one was a brown wool skirt in the below pattern, McCall 4662.

The other 1 1/2 is the Simplicity 4365 pattern below.  The one completed was a purple wool for my friend Jennifer.  I love making her stuff!  The one not yet finished is light grey cotton and is for me!!  By the beginning of next week I might have a whole new wardrobe!!

I have really enjoyed this week of sewing and I know it is going to continue!  As soon as I have pictures of the finished projects, I will post them!!

Jack's pirate costume and more!!

I forgot to post Jack's pirate costume!!  This was his very first Holloween, so we had to dress him up!  He was Jack the one eyed pirtate!!  The little thing dangling by his face is his eye patch.  He wasn't a fan of it over his face, but he didn't mind it off to the side.

Doesn't he just look like he wants to plunder something!!  The orange thing on his back is his parrot.  Recently we had to lay his parrot to rest b/c we gave it to him that night to play with.  It no longer has wings or feet and the stuffing is still in my bed!

All of the trick or treaters really wore him out!!  He is just so tiny!!

No post in a month!!!

Well, I haven't posted in a month!!  I know, bad blogger!!  I've been a little busy lately and I haven't had a camera to take pictures of projects.  Here are my recent projects that I have started and a few that I am going to start in the near future.



I started a vest for my boyfriend, Ricky, last week.  It is for a Mardi Gras ball at the end of February.  The vest is gold squined and it is great!!  I haven't finished it b/c I am going to wait until closer to put the finishing touches on it in case he gains or loses weight.  I will make sure to post a picture then.  Speaking of Mardi Gras, below is a sketch of the dress I am making myself for the ball.  It will be fairly easy to make, but I am beading the top, so that will be time consuming!!  It will be made of chiffon in 3 different shades, nude, light pink, and apricot with the top covered in rhinstones and clear/silver beads.Image hosted by Photobucket.com



I started this shirt last night.  It is McCall's pattern 4454.  The material that I am using is a silky purple polka dot that is pictured below it.  The material isn't as dark as it looks in the picture, but I had to use a scanner as a camera.Image hosted by Photobucket.com

This top is going to be out of the navy blue and pink polka dot material below.  It is McCall pattern 4834.  I will probably start it some time next week.

I also have a few skirts that I am going to start making, but I'm going to wait to post the pattern once I figure out what material I am going to use!
