Look Ma, No Hands!

How about a thread to post links to something we are particularly proud of?
I love links as I find the new Flickr quite hard to load with my country internet.
I am happy to go first.
I made a Secret Agent trench coat from a fabric that was far out of my usual choice and I love the results.
Who is next?

That’s pretty awesome, Nicole! I love the whole get up, it’s really cool.
I haven’t gotten all that much sewing done this summer, but I am really chuffed with Isa’s wish dress: http://queenoftheflies.blogspot.com/2013/07/i-wish-i-may.html

Those are both gorgeous, ladies! Your sewing is dreamy!10 years agobrenda1652 @brenda1652
You ladies are awesome! Thanks for the inspiration, now time to get off my duff and reclaim my sewing room from the 2 litters of kittens in there. Kittens, anyone? How about you Liesl? My son lives in Astoria, I will gladly deliver one or all! (and then dash over to Mood for a bit) Kittens are from sweet rescued moms, dad is an irresponsible but charming fellow)…off topic, sorry 🙂10 years ago
I adore that dress Melanie, I dream of sewing as well as you!
Thank you Sarvi and Brenda. Super kind of you.
Come on ladies, share and share alike. I am missing so many cute things in the Flickr pool. Jane’s divine IceCream dress slipped past me.

Both lovely dresses. Melanie, I have that fabric in that colorway … and the music box pattern … you may see a copycat next year! Nicole, the coat is fantastic paired with the black leggings and boots. She looks like a little runway model.
So you want us to brag, do you, Nicole? 😉 OK, I’ll play. I’m really super-duper pleased with my modified Family Reunion dress. It turned out just how I pictured it in my head, and I can’t wait until it’s a little cooler so my girl can wear it with tights and her hot pink Asters, and a little cardigan with the collar peeking out. http://www.flickr.com/photos/23557464@N03/9575444430/10 years ago
That is such a pretty pretty dress. I will be ‘complimenting’ it directly. I am just waiting for your blog post.
PS I lurve Aster shoes.10 years agoneedlewoman @needlewoman
Great, a sanctioned place to boast, skite, blow your own horn, puff up your chest, and generally celebrate sewing hurdles hurdled! Thank you Nicole for great idea.10 years agocybele727 @cybele727
I am particularly proud of this roller skate.
First time applique. Also the lining is a vertical stripe. I used it as an opportunity to fussy cut to get experience with stripes without it being seen if I made mistakes. And they actually match and look good. 🙂10 years agomeleliza @meleliza
Oh Nicole! I dream of getting as accomplished as you! 🙂
Masha, I adore the Peter Pan collar. That has never been my favorite pattern and I havent made it, though i did pick up a copy when I found it on sale at a random smocking shop In Georgia (the state). I really think tht design has been missing this finishing touch all along! I shall now go and find the right fabric for family reunion.
Cybele, the appliqué is charming and the effect lovely.
Keep bragging, ladies! I know you’ve all done lovely work.10 years agoTamara @justsewit
Yaaay! Masha you did your tute! I love that little dress – too cute for words.10 years agobrenda1652 @brenda1652
You ladies are the BEST! Keep it coming. Eventually someone will take the kitties and I’ll be sewing again, with lots of wonderful inspiration.10 years agowith love Heidi @with love Heidi
