Linen Halter

This is another halter dress I made using linen fabric. This fabric caught my eye while shopping in Hancock one day. It is also lined. I prefer to substitute full lining instead of facings, like this pattern called for. It makes the item have a more finished look.

Retro Halter Dress

Here is a halter dress I made out of some retro fabric I found online. I added a flower to the front and created a headband with a flower. I also lined it with a white fabric. I used lingerie elastic to make the headband because it is softer. The model is another Riley I know and the daughter of a friend.

Check out my friend Aimee's blog

I have a sewing night every couple of weeks at my house and Aimee is one of my sewing buddies. Check out her blog:

Frog Sundress

Here is another made from pique fabric in an frog design. The reversed side is green with white polka dots.

Yet another version of the sundress. This fabric is a high quality cotton pique. The flower is something I added for a special touch. I pin it on so it can be changed when the dress is reversed.
I also included the reversed look.

Here is the same sundress pattern using this great tiger fabric. The reversed side is a purple/white microcheck.
Go LSU Tigers!!!!

Reversible Sundress

Here are some pictures of my new design - Annette - a reversible sundress. The two adorable little girl's are Riley and Rose, daughters of two friends.
