One down, eleven to go!

I've finished the swimsuit cover but since it's a present I can't post pictures of it yet. I guess you'll just have to wait. :)

What do you think?? Can I do it? Will I mess up? You'll have to wait and see!!!

Here are some pictures of what I'm working with.

The yellow is for the dresses, vests, and ties. The solid yellow is lining. The whites are lining and for the jackets. The olive is for the swimsuit. The brown is for the cover. Everything else is somehow part of the above.

These are the patterns for the wedding party people

I am making the vest and bow tie from this pattern. ^

I am making the vest and tie from this pattern. ^

I am making one of each dress (other than the blue one) plus 2 jackets from this pattern. ^

And I am making the white swimsuit and the zebra cover from this pattern as my bridal shower gift.

Here are some pictures of me and a couple friends at a dance. Everything you can see that I am wearing (other than the shoes) I made. It cost me about $60 and 20 hours to make. Let me know what you thing!!!

Just a note, I am planning on making a bunch of denim purses ranging from $10 to $30 (plus shipping if needed) so if you want one, let me know and you can even give me some ideas to personalize it just for you!!

Simply adorable!!

Here is a dress that was simple to make. The fabric for it already had the elastic around the bodice which made the fabric more expensive but it made the making of the dress simple. All I had to do was put a seem in the side and ad sleeves. No pattern needed. :) The sleeves have elastic in them that I added to give them a cute little gather. Isn't the dress just adorable!!
