New pants, costume and a sweater!

Busy times lately!! And I've made a promise to spend less time on the Internet to myself! So I took myself off facebook, myspace and many other time wasting venues I had going...
Ofcourse I love to blog, its like my journal , so no cutting back or stopping it.

Recent projects...
From BWOF 7/03 I made this pair of pants and a navy pair. The bustier is from Burda, made for New Years. The jacket was from a Mc Calls pattern and I cropped it. The pants had a waist band that I left off. They fit much better without it. By the way I'm dressed I guess you can tell we were going out on the town!

I have several other things I've made lately that I will probably wear this weekend... along with the Bald Man's new shirt I made this week! On the crochet front...
I took this picture Monday... now its done!!!! I can't believe I crocheted a whole sweater!!! And just in time because its turned off super cold here.
I'll be wearing it this weekend too...
Look at lil' pac... he was holding back so hard from jumping on my sweater..
Last Friday night we went out and saw my friend Caryn dance at Mirage. A beautiful dancer, she
looks radiant every time I see her. Below is a costume I guess you would call a joint effort...
I constructed the base and she embellished it with all the lovely ab crystals... we did good!
I love this costume... simple and elegant, it doesn't compete with Caryn, only complements her.
Many times bellydancers make the mistake of wearing a costume that is... "too much"
so it ends up looking like the costume is wearing the dancer instead of the other way around...

I'm working on another costume for Caryn... its gonna be a hot one! I can't wait for it to be done!!

OMG! Great outfit. The pleated bustier is so cute. Caryn's costume is awesome. It fits perfectly. Please show the finished sweater soon.

You have been super busy and the pants looks great with the bustier.

Did you use boning for your bustier? My daughter has asked me several time to make her one and I have 2 patterns that require boning.

Blink Blink... a completed sweater... too cool.
