This blog contains fabric, things constructed out of fabric, and the ultimate fabric item costumes. This includes favorite costumes from movies/TV, costumes at renfaire, Halloween etc., stuff I've made, and from time to time a rant random comment or the all encompassing "other".
Lately the "other" has been taking over so be warned.

This pattern from Butterick is almost exactly like one of the Betty Page dresses from modcloth.  All that is missing is the keyhole.
I could probably make a keyhole with not much difficulty.  The big problem again is finding fabric that I like and figuring out if I want to spend the time making a dress or just buy it.

This dress is McCalls 6953 and has many similar lines to the dresses I’ve been interested in.  The only trouble is I would have to find fabric for this dress

Everyday Accolades Dress in Cobalt from Modcloth.
I also like this dress in black.  I really love the cowl neck.  Cowl necks have been a bit of an obsession right now.  This might be a good dress for the wedding and it looks like it could also be a work dress.

Beyond Compare Dress 
Beyond Compare Dress from Modcloth.
This dress is one of many in my possible wedding guest dress list.  I like that it’s a pretty color.  The length is nice, but I do like wearing necklaces and the heavily beaded neckline doesn’t really call for additional decoration.

Plum Ruffle dress from The Pyramid Collection.
I love the color and the sleeve ruffles are super cute.  I just don’t think this dress is right for me.

With Only a Wink Dress on Modcloth
This is another Betty Page dress.  I love the lattice work on this dress.  I don’t know if this dress would be a good work dress, maybe on days when there are private events.

Plum Lace Dress from The Pyramid Collection
I really like the look of this dress, but I have a feeling I probably won’t like it on me.  I do really like the lace and color.

Front Keyhole Skater Dress from Torrid.com
I do like a good keyhole, but do I really want to do a LBD for the wedding?  Such a tough decision.
