I started sewing in High School when I made part of my prom dress. Over the years I started working with costuming - mainly renaissance faire clothes and Halloween costumes. I then graduated to making custom corsets. I've also made a few fashion pieces and I made my wedding dress, part of my husband's wedding ensemble (jacket and vest) and my stepson's kilt for the wedding. I also made my mom's Mother-of-the-Bride dress. That was really the last major sewing I've done though.
I'm completely self taught - never taken a sewing class. I make all my own patterns too. I've taught myself how to draft patterns and also how to drape patterns. Here are some of the things I've made:
I made the red shirt
I made her pink fleece hoodie, but she's pulled out some of the seams. Dog clothes are a completely different animal than people clothes. For one you can't take good measurements because they wiggle too much.
I made my wedding dress and my husband's jacket (and vest, though it's not visible)
Better photos of his jacket
I just happened upon this thread, and I have to say, the fitting work on that dress is AMAZING. WOW.
