New shirts

So I have been mentally preparing myself for attempting to sew my summer/fall wardrobe. Hopefully my plans will come to fruition but so far when I plan things out I tend to well, ditch halfway.
This will be my first official planning post as pertains to wardrobe.
So I have planned approximately seven shirts. I have had really good success with two retro patterns which seem to flatter my figure and am chancing it with the final seventh. 
The first three are variations on the pattern Simplicity 1692. 

Wardrobe Redux

So far....I've got the skirt and waistband cut out for my mini poodle, the shirt just missing hems and the zipper, and the pattern ready to cut out my apple shirt, tea shirt, and my blue bee shirt.
Roses shirt needs loops for the buttons and tiger shirt is giving me issue. Happy Easter from the candy boy down there!!!

.......I mades it

More to follow when I attach the buttons and wrangle the boy into it!

Halloween 2013 (It Rhymes!!!)

So last Halloween me and the family went to the trick o treating at Lincolns home street. Of course we dug out the hoopskirts for this and I whipped together something for my boy to wear to kinda/sorta fit in. Here we are!                                                                                                                                                          

It was very fun, except for the awkward part where people thought we were passing out candy. Im wearing mom's Furniture Day Dress, she's wearing her brown silk Ballgown and Alicia is wearing my School Marm outfit. Toby is cobbled together with something that kind fits? Anway, I wanted to show a few fun shots of how-we-got-into-those-things before the treating --->
