My new fav Dress and the winner is!!!!

This is my new favorite dress... Vogue 1020... made from more fabulous fabric I got down in Panama! I shorten the dress quite a bit for a throw back mini look.

The gathers at the side are so flattering!
No problems with this pattern at all!
I made this dress and 2 tops from this pattern (one lace long sleeve and one knit short sleeve) all in one day.
I want many more of these dresses! I need more of these dresses or I will wear this one out!


I crocheted the little scarf... its hairpin lace crochet. Worked up in about
45min. to an hour




And the little leg warmers!!! I crocheted them up quick a couple of months ago.

I need some in black too...




I really have been sewing alot... just not posting alot! I guess because alot of the things I've been sewing for myself have been basics.
I've been crocheting ALOT too.... the things I just finished a shell top and I'm now working on an afghan and a pair of socks
AND working on a bridesmaid dress for a client.
*Suit Update*
The blazer is all cut out, interfaced and marked but it has to wait until the bridesmaid dress is done.
