thinking along the lines of...

...turquoise. It's fall, but it's fun to look back on some of the fun, summer dresses I've made. One of my favorites is...

I was inspired to make this from a photo in a women's clothing catalog. My creations rarely end up looking exactly like the original inspiration because I begin adding my own touches and tweaks.

Pretty Pink Princess

I love costumes. They are so much fun! I had a whole chest of them when I was younger and I loved going through it and creating fancy outfits for myself. A while ago, I had the pleasure of creating a lovely pink princess outfit for a client...

I really like the rich, vivid colors! I also created a yellow one that I will have to share in the not so distant future. :-)

Fall Swap Outfit

The fall swap on AGFMB was fantastic this year! I adored the outfit that I received and I was able to come up with a nice outfit to give as well...

These buttons caught my eye and I knew I had to get them...

Red Dress

I recently completed a red corduroy dress for a customer. Can you believe that my fabric store did not have a scrap of the fabric I needed in stock? It wasn't hard to track some down though, and I think the dress turned out lovely...

To make the dress, I based it off of an outfit from the Wooden Soldier...

Wooden Soldier

I think this dress will be perfect for the upcoming holidays!
