DVF inspiration progress

So I made a dress before I ordered my fabric. Not bad. Made the skirt wider and longer. It is not finished I still have to hem the top and the bottom of the skirt going to put a string in the back to keep the arms up. Need to fix a pucker in the arm but all in all I am happy with it and can't wait to wear it. Oh and I added pockets! Those came out great. This was my first time putting sleeves on anything and it was not easy.

my DVF inspired dress

ok mimi and adreinne(sp) have made an dvf inspired dress(brown and white maxi dress). I saw this faux wrap dress pattern on pinterest (of course) and I would like to give it a go. with the fabric (pictured here) this fabric is only $5 a yard I need at least two yards. The pattern is a size ten and it is not maxi length. I can fix the maxi length part but the size ten... I hope this fabric has a bunch of stretch or it will be come my weight loss inspiration piece. either way i have to have it.

My off center granny square

I think with these colors it is not that easy to see. This will probably be a pillow. For my skirt I want to use berrocco vintage the same yarn I used for my everyway wrap.Upon further investigation i think i did my square wrong.  Looking at my example it looks just like the skirt but my square does not.  And if you look at my join row it is all jacked.  I am going to make it again this times without a baby on my lap.

too cute

a great idea

this skirt doesn't seem all that hard it took me a minute to figured out this off center square   I found a diagram online and i still had to look at it for a minute.  I just need yarn.  I think I want to do granny square in the front and back or jersey knit.  I still have that jersey knit sheet.  the grey granny square skirt will be perfect for my grey jersey knit sheet!
