hand-knit sweater and purple corduroys.
for that dress, i cut a t-shirt off, added darts, and sewed a skirt to it. the skirt has pockets. i really like this dress. the vest is hand knit and oh! i wish i had a picture of the back because that's the cool part! the back is diagonally sliced in half, the upper right half is light blue (like the right side) and the lower left half is dark blue (like the left side). black crocheted trim on all the edges. i love this vest (it was going to be a cardigan) but it is too big on me and the acrylic fabric is kind of stiff, which doesn't mean it falls nicely. i think it looks better in this model, though that's not a very good picture.
inbetween the look with the vest and the next dress was another dress. it was a mini dress with pockets (i love pockets!). the middles (front and back) were white stretch knit (so it wouldn't need a zipper and could just stretch on) and one side was purple and the other was blue. it was very cute and kind of mod-looking.
this is not a very good picture. here is that floral again.
the last look was a black mini skirt (pocketed, of course) with a pink short sleeve blouse tucked into it. the blouse was pleated at the collar and had bit of a stand up collar. i liked it and someone told me when i was wearing it, i looked like a 1950s roller skating, soda fountain girls. at least i think that was what she meant, she didn't say it very well. over the blouse i put a blazer that i had made from that same floral fabric.
well there you have it, my first collection in review. i was pretty pleased. it certainly wasn't the most impressive (technically or visually) sight to take the stage, but i really like all of the things i made.
