Sleeveless Green Dress

This simple dress is meant to be for the home, but with the right accessories can be worn to work or to go out for dinnerIt is made of cotton print fabric, green with golden dot's. Fabric is actually meant to be for the Christmas decoration but I've always been a bit unconventional...
The pattern is an old Burda pattern that I always come back to because it's so simple and comfortable.

....and this are the other dresses made with the same pattern, plus some other before which I never photographed.

Pin-Up Panties,Bloomers and Suspenders

Hi people! In the past few days I finally focused on lingerie, specifically on the panties and garters.
In one of the past Burda Style magazine there was a pattern of high-waisted panties. They are really not a problem to sew only that I took one size smaller pattern since I sewed them out of stretchy net fabric.
This time I didn't made cotton crotch so this is sexy see through panties!
I also made two pair of sheer crotchless bloomers...actually I made them earlier but his time I added some bows.
here with bows in contrast color
here with bows in the same color

..and a few suspender belts with pieces of lycra and lace.

My Blue Dress


inspiration
Question was should I make one side buttoning or double sided.


I chose double sided.
After I wore this dress for the first time I realized I shouldn't wear it on the windy day because it opens up to the waist. It wouldn't be bad to add another two rows of buttons.

Black Velvet Dress

     This is custom dress made for Ivana aka Greta MaCabre. She wore that dress to the Cabaret New Burlesque show this Saturday.
I must say last week was very stressful because of that dress. Longer than a week we have negotiated about fabric. I went through all the shops in the area and eventually bought that first suggested....velvet. At the end, I had only three days to make a dress.
I told her to secure a second outfit, just in case if the dress does not suit (velvet was not stretchy and the dress should be tight). Luckily, the dress was perfect. Ah, how good I am! :)

 Cuffs and waistband with big bow  are made of Shantung fabric.
It's a pity that there's no photo where we see more of the dress but it may appear something these days.
