Two Outfits for a Night out!

Saturday night is our night out and we both had new clothes to wear that I made last week!!
Here is Vogue 1020.... I have made this dress before and I've also made the shirt version twice.. I love it... super easy and really flattering. I cut it out one day and made it in a couple of hours the next.
I got this fabric at Gail K's in ATL... while doing my personal style look book projects I noticed alot of military and camo stuff for spring in the fashion magazines.... so I just had to find some pink camo! Here is The Bald Man's new shirt... I told y'all the more shirts I make him the more machines and fabric he'll buy!!! ;-)
The is the Islander sewing pattern I always use for him....Made this in 2 days... I'm getting faster! The pattern says it can easily be made in 4 hours... not quite there yet.... haha. Ofcourse the embroidery adds time to it.

This more machines I can point out that I used the better.... here's some embroidery..
he picked out this fabric himself and I was scared... but I think it turned out really good.
He picked out the buttons too. The Asian symbol means wisdom.



Back yoke, left shoulder...




Back yoke right shoulder...




Making mens shirts would be boring but getting to add embroidery to it makes it fun.






This week I have made a new pair of dress pants... navy with beige pinstripes... finished up today! I did a screen print stencils on a long sleeve t shirt today too.... and I cut out 4 patterns! AND I cut out and started a corset top.... should be finished by the end of the week if I have no fit problems.
Y'all have a great week!!!

I've said it before and I'll say it again: I've never seen anyone make so many things, so fast, and look so nice!!! I love the pink camo!!!

I love your dress! I've made that pattern in both the dress and top form many times now and I love that you can change the look so easily, just by choosing interesting fabric. I have a plain black and a plain red version that than look elegant and then I have a purple snake print that looks a lot more nightclubby. Your camo print is so much fun. I love Bald Man's shirt, I've been experimenting with smaller bits of embroidery on my bloke's shirts, too and I really like the way it adds interest. The buttons are lovely.

Great work! You are so fast!

Your top looks awesome. After that great shirt, the bald man needs to buy you more machines and fabric! It looks like you are sewing faster and everything looks so professional. Way to go!!

You guys always look like you are having so much fun! Also I saw in your profile that you have a dobie-I have two! It is hard to sew when Dog2 keeps putting her head in my lap while I am trying to sew at the machine. She is the boss of me no matter what I say.
