I have three items left on my list to sew...the accompanying jacket to The Lace Inspired Dress, the second inspirational Jason Wu dress and a designer inspired dress that I'm still going back and forth over whether I can pull off. Hopefully the jacket and JWu dress will make it out of my sewing machine before the month is over because this is the first time since I've been doing sewing vacays that I've felt unsatisfied with what I accomplished. Not in the quality or even the amount but that I fell far short of my personal goals.
Here are the finished garments from this sewing vacay...
The Lace Inspired Dress, The Pinstriped Inspired Dress,
The Mixed Fabrications Dress and The Quickie Dress
...what I finished last year...
...and the year before...
I will be interspersing quite a few of these looks with the four pieces I just completed to wear to work this month...and even though these were very involved garments...I never reached the creative nirvana that I usually experience after a sewing vacay. So the main lesson I've learned this year ~ I need the full week off to be creatively satisfied. Believe me, this won't happen in 2012!!!
The full collection along with construction pics can be viewed in my flickr album.
Finally, I want to thank you all for following along while I sewed...for all of the wonderful comments you left regarding the dresses and for realizing that even fat girls can be fashionable!
...as always, more later!
