From Scratch

Every once in a while, I come across (or search for) pictures of pretty dresses that someday I hope to make for myself. When my aunt gave me some fabric the last time she came for a visit, I seized the opportunity and made these two dresses. The sundress on the right is something I have wanted for a looong time, and I was so excited with how it turned out!

Glorified Skirt

I had this old green skirt that I never wore, and a picture in my mind of a really cute dress I wanted. The two eventually came together and resulted in the dress on the right.

Formal Makeover

This was my most recent project. I took a plain, black, one-shoulder dress like the one on the left and added some color and sparkle to create the dress on the right.

Practical Makeovers

I made this fun yellow apron into a top. The bright color is perfect for summer.

This top looked a little baggy when I first got it, so I added a few lines of elastic to give it more shape.
