I really needed one and the ones i started, for some reason, i never finished them (didnt like them, weren't what i wanted, blah) lol, but this one i did like, i actually love it so much.

CONTRAST BACK DRESS TUTORIAL Ever since I made my contrast back sequin dress, I've been itching to make one from scratch. The initial idea came from this Stella McCartney dress that Rachel wore, so when I found this gorgeous floral fabric with metallic gold detailing at a local fabric shop, I knew I had to make it. I finished it just in time for Easter, and it was so much fun that I've vowed to make myself an Easter dress every year from now on. Maybe I'll even have a baby girl someday I can make us matching dresses. But let's not get ahead of ourselves here... made by me dress Materials: 1 yard floral fabric (can be any material, stretchy or not -- mine is a medium weight quilting-type cotton with a slight stretch)1 yard knit (I used a nice thick ponte knit)matching thread20-22 in. zipper 2 // sew darts in the BODICE TOP and in the SKIRT FRONT, as shown, so it fits nicely around your bust and hips. 3 // Once your darts are sewn, attach the BODICE TOP and SKIRT FRONT, sewing with right sides together.

Rooibos on friday (3 – the end) « My Daruma Vendredi, 22h, après une bien longue journée : c’était moins une pour le billet du vendredi…! La robe est terminée et j’en suis très contente. Monsieur Daruma me trouve un petit air secrétaire sage des années 60 qui n’est pas pour lui déplaire. Moi je dirais plutôt année 50 mais passons, voulez-vous, sur les subtilités stylistique du vintage. Côté couture, pas de problème particulier pour ce modèle Rooibos que j’ai trouvé plutôt plus facile que la robe Macaron du printemps dernier. Seule petite ombre au tableau : si le bustier était parfaitement ajusté, j’ai du retirer plusieurs centimètres de part et d’autre de la jupe qui était résolument trop ample à la taille et aux hanches. Je suis très très fière de mes poches (les toutes premières en 4 ans de couture!) Merci à Sarai Mitnick pour ce très très joli patron. Friday, 10 PM. The dress is finished and i am so pleased with it! The sewing went really well. I’m very proud of the pockets (my first ever in 4 years of sewing!) Like this:

Petite robe rouge Tutoriel Infinity | Coudre comme ma mère February 14, 2011 I’m always searching for a beautiful, well-fitting, versatile dress, and I finally found it. In fact, I MADE it. The infinity dress has got it all! I made my infinity dress in about 3 hours and for under $20! I found these infinity dresses on Craftster years ago and have always loved them. First, you need to do some measuring. So, 30/6.28 = 4.7. Then I decided on length of skirt and came up with 18″. To make your straps, you need to decide how wide to make them. To determine strap length, you need to make them 1.5 times your height. So, got that? To make your pattern, get packing paper, freezer paper, or a bunch of pieces of computer paper taped together. Then I measured 18″ down from that and made another line for my skirt length. Cut out on your lines. Now, keeping your fabric folded in half with selvages matched, fold the fabric in from the end so it’s doubled on itself. Next, cut a waistband 10″ tall and the length of your waist you measured. Now for construction.
