Another sneek

So I know you are all dying to see my tops for the competition so here is a little sneek at what they look like. My beautiful little sister Mia is my model for the outfits (she is way more photogenic then I, and about 10lbs lighter too) This is a lovely little 50's inspired top that obviously is in dire need of a good press. And that is key people, Having a really good iron is almost as important as a machine. It makes everything look really professional, to bad they will put you back like minimum $100. So I borrow a friends from time to time, the best irons are rowenta. Anyways I think I am going to make a little belt to go on it. This will be paired with the purple damask skirt wih black piping.

I have to say that I am a little disapointed with this jacket. Do not get me wrong it is everything the pattern said it would be. It was actually really easy to sew giving the fact that it is a jacket. I just have gotten it done and on and have decided it does not fit the "look" or "style" I was hoping for. I feel that it makes her look frumpy, the collar s too high and it really should have been made a little longer I think. What do you guys think? It will be paired with the cheetah print skirt. I was going for a safari-like theme here, the jacket is a really nice linen with a satin collar and belt. And last question, Should I do buttons or no?

I would really like to hear what you think of this? In other words I need Help. I also think I would like this outfit on a blond. So if you or anyone you know are a blond about size 4 and are interested in helping me out please email me It is only 2 pics in the outfit that I need. Thanks and happy sewing.

Ok, the first one I really like, the only thing I it needs is a really cool belt and its finished! The second needs something but I can't put my finger on it....I don't know, but way to go they both are really good.

I'm thinking the same thing about that jacket. Keep playing around and I'm sure you'll figure something out. Good luck!
