I guess this technically meets April's challenge requirements as well? Continuing on the wedding theme, here's my friend's leaving dress! It was kind of funny how this turned out. She was IMing me about 3 weeks ago, telling me she was stressed about finding a leaving dress since her main dress is so delicate. Then … Continue reading Cambie #6: The Leaving Dress
I have a confession: this dress and blog post have been complete for about two weeks now, but this is the first opportunity I've had to take pictures. Oops. Anyway, say hello to Cambie #4! Or, a dress I can wear to places other than cons. I made this dress as part of my garment … Continue reading Cambie #4: The Instruction/Conference Dress

So a little background: I decided to make … Continue reading Belle: Remaking the dress
I accidentally got on a sewing roll yesterday. The BF is obsessed with beating Titan on hard mode in FF14 (meanwhile, I'm all "LOOK AT THE CUTE THINGS MY LALAFELL CAN DO!"), which gave me lots of time to sew. I made progress on several things. Blue satin Cambie: The BF and I have a very … Continue reading Some weekend progress
I finally had a chance to wear my Star Wars dress at Dallas Fan Days. I’ve been meaning to post about this dress for a while now. Originally, I decided to make this dress and wear it for Star Wars Reads Day at work. Planning fell through, and we didn’t wind up having an “event” … Continue reading Star Wars Cambie Dress
