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!
