Finished projects

Here's the red dress that I blogged about yesterday...  with and without the "modesty" insert.  ...(I think I need new shoes for this dress.  I only have summer sandals, and I think this dress requires "real" shoes... in black.)
When this picture was taken, I hadn't hemmed it yet, (just pinned), but it's done and ready to makes it debut.

This tee will be my favorite.. I already have 2 more knits set aside to make this top again.  McCalls 6399... I love the tucks and the neckline.
The neckline is faced, but I bound it instead.  The binding makes for a more casual look; I may use the facing next time.

I forgot I made this Cynthia Rowley skirt with some leftover fabric. The first time I made this skirt I felt like an apple. The bottom circumference is much narrower than the waist, and the waist is really gathered.  I didn't taper it to the hem this time, and like the look much better.   The waistband is cute


  1. Great projects but I especially LOVE the skirt. Actually, I WANT the skirt!!! Great job.

  2. I bought that t-shirt pattern a few weeks ago. I hope it looks as good on me as it does on you.
