My Designer me-made Copy …

Happily, I have managed to get everything finished on time and was only waiting for some nice weather to take photos outside.  This is not a photo of MY weather but the weather in Calgary, Alberta.  I’m so happy we don’t have this kind of snow!  We actually have had some pretty good weather here for photographs!

I wanted to copy this Designer Original, this kimono jacket from zasue.com and this dress, but I was hoping I could make it a skirt and top instead of a dress.  I have been searching for the name of the dress designer but I must be cursed, whenever I look for it on Pinterest (where I found it) it only circles me back to my blog!

 

I chose these McCall’s patterns, M7200 and M7574.  I love the sleeves on the top/dress pattern.  I plan on using both of these patterns again!

Button, button, who’s got the button?

… the DESIGNIN’ DECEMBER button that is!  Well, it’s done.  I put it on my sidebar menu, which might of course appear at the bottom of my blog for some views.  Copy and past the code under the button into a Text Widget on your blog and you too can brag about your Challenge to not buy a Designer Original, but to make it yourself!

If you get really, really frustrated trying to copy and paste the code – just cheat and download this image and upload it onto your blog… it’s ok!

Nice dress!  Thanks, I made it!!

Now, if you have missed a couple of my past posts and are wondering what the heck I am talking about, learn about DESIGNIN’ DECEMBER, its rules and its sponsors RIGHT HERE!
