thinking of using this lace i picked up at saver's to make a little short sleeved cover up or somesort.
took a bit of a break, but the dress is nearly finished. it turned out too big so im working on that. need to finish hems and add straps and zipper. also plan to adjust the skirt length a few inches shorter.

finished cutting the pieces for the bodice. i'm using black cotton fabric instead of the girly white and pink stripes. i think i'll leave out the ruffles as well.

tonight's agenda: cutting out skirt and sewing!

the lolita dress:

while doodling i came across this little number and decided it will be my next project.

check out burdastyle.com for lots of free patterns and tips. a great little online community 'for people who sew' or who want to learn.

fabric shopping in my very near future!

new year, new work space
