As Requested...

Here's the polka-dot pink dress I made - on me!

Gotta say, I'm really enjoying it. I've worn it three times since I made it a couple of weeks ago. Oh, and it cost $10.00 in material (eeek!). Ok, it also cost 14 hours in labour, but I'm ok with that.


  1. oh that is lovely! and the fit looks so great - bravo on your expert sewing skills! :)

  2. 100% fabulous. And love it to bits with those boots.

  3. Love it!
    Makes me think of the 60s.

  4. love it! you are skilled :)

  5. Wow, you managed to make a really fun print into a SEX-AY little number! Good job!

  6. That looks really nice on you! Great job!

  7. Fantastic - but what would you normally earn for labour?

    (keep that for the next time you buy something pret a porter) but I saved 1400 dollars!

  8. Incredible. I wish I had a dress like that right now, to wear this weekend!

  9. You did a fantastic job... SEXY.... love the print, and it drapes on your bod perfectly.

  10. Love the finished article - what a great achievement. Can't wait to buy my sewing machine!

  11. You are divine. I am unspeakably jealous of your talent!!

  12. Fabulous! You look amazing. I covet your boots.

  13. At the risk of sounding creepy, you have great legs! Wonderful job on the dress.

  14. Darling, you rock that dress! What an accomplisment; I'm envious.

    Now, whatever are you gazing at through those blinds?

  15. Miss Sophie: You are too kind!

    Sal: Thanks - the boots have been languishing in a closet and I just remembered them right before the shoot.

    Raven: It's supposed to be kind of 60s so I guess the pattern is working!

    Lottie: Thank you so much. I'm learning!

    WendyB: Merci pookie.

    Stacy: Thank you so much! Means a lot coming from you...

    Mardel: So much of my sewing accomplishments to date are thanks to you xo

    Lis: That's the problem! My outfits end up costing 500 bucks at the end of it.

    E: Give me a few weeks and I might start sewing for international friends!

    April: Thank you so much!

    Kate: It's slow going, but so worth it. I can't wait to see what you do with your new machine. get it soon!

    Stacey (Anymommy): That is such a high compliment. Keep in mind I don't have 4 children needing my love and attention. You'll be running the world - and sewing if you choose - in a few years when those babies are more independent!

    Shallow Coffee: Thanks! I haven't worn those boots in ages. I'm happy they came to mind before the photo shoot.

    Andrea: Compliments from you are never creepy. Thanks! xo

    Lydia: Ha! I'll never tell. And thank you. Can't wait to see what you do in your new sewing space.
