Blue metallic lace over hand dyed silk crepe de chine.  This pattern is a simple, elegant and classic dress design.  Mademoiselle looks so grown up!
Prom 2013
Snow White costume in quilting cotton and poly satin.  Very authentic looking costume!

Fragments of two or three patterns in combination with self-drafted, three-piece, vented sleeves.  Plaid wool boucle in several colors.
A labor of love (and great learning experience)
Rayon/acetate, bias-cut, cowl neck, 3/4 length sleeves.

Silk crepe de chine, this pattern is a keeper

Quilting cotton lined in cling-free poly lining.  Love the wide collar/neckline.  Covered buttons blend in so well with the bound buttonholes, that it could use more contrast.  This was intended to be a muslin, but it is so fun to wear.  Would love to make the longer version in silk for an evening jacket.

Black lace and satin.  A classic dress pattern, and a very versatile piece.

McCall's 6332, August 2012
Poly satin, bodice/straps lined in lightweight cotton.  Halter bodice with front zipper.  This was a fun one to make and a fun one for Mademoiselle to wear.  (I think this pattern is OOP.)  
Made a matching bow-tie with scraps.

Coral polyester chiffon, satin and organza.  Drafted an attached corselette so the dress would stay up on the dance floor.

Brown poly satin.  This is one of my favorite dress patterns - it has a foundation that makes wearing it a joy.

Brown poly organza underlined with cerise poly satin. We added the organza overlay feature, so we could have a brown dress that wasn't too brown.
