Maddy Goes High-Tech

Finally, I have pictures of my most recent finished project. Behold!

The gorgeous fabric:

The dress, all aloney on its owney:

The dress, featuring me! Doesn't it look much happier this way?


Yes, the picture is most definitely sideways. And yes, it is very fuzzy because my mother is awful with a camera. However! Is the effect not magnificent? Or at least decent? Whatever, I'll work out the kinks later, this whole photography thing is really far too high tech for me. I'm thinking I may take the hem up about four inches so it hits my knee (I think that's what it's supposed to do, I am just really quite short). And how do these shoes look with it? Anyhow, on to the next project, or rather the next two.I'll update on those soon, but right now I've got to go do the dishes and my homework and take a shower and well.... ugh.

Well done! I can't sew at all. I made a cape once but the seams turned out awful..

Love the fabric. Which pattern is this? I don't usually wear halters but this looks so great, I might just change my mind.

Props to you for some serious sewing skills (hello alliteration!) It looks great too!

Re: Pete Doherty tried to kill her by throwing her out of a window...but it failed. Shame.
