15-16th Century costume

This outfit was completed with me spending less than $10 on supplies! I love the corded outer bodice! It was finished for use as a pirate costume for my nephew's birthday party.

New, and more modern, modest swimsuit

Here is a swimsuit I sewed this summer. I love the colors! It is very comfortable, stretchy, and it didn't drowned me when I swam in it :-) I would like to try making more!

A new creation

This is a skirt I whipped up the other day. I needed another nice skirt that would mach most of my nice tops and I had gotten the fabric previously at the thrift store! It fits perfectly!

This was my first pattern with a waist band and also my first with an invisible zipper! Thankfully they both went on smoothly!

Baby carrier

This is a baby carrier I made for fun (we already had 2).
The pattern was very easy, I think it would be fine for beginners too! If your more experienced and crafty you can add more detail and even a little cell phone pocket for fun on one of the straps (just an idea, use your imagination and you could do ANYTHING!!!).
I found the basic (free) instructions
here but I didn't make the interchangeable panels part.

The little child in the picture is one of our cute foster babies (that's why I had to block the face out) I wish you could see how CUTE they are! We have had 29 in the past year.

A doll dress

I made this American girl doll dress for my little sister (all of us girls have several Amer. girl dolls). I totally changed the pattern to make this dress and was very happy with the finished product.

The style of this dress (I would say) is around the late 1800's and is a walking or riding style dress (because of the shorter length).

I also had some fun making a small bustle to go in the back ;-).
