Gifted Gorgeousness - June

It's time for another Gifted Gorgeousness, where we show anything we can manage to shoehorn into the category of gift gifts we've made or received, or projects we've done using gifted materials. See Jo's blog for more details
This month I've done quite a bit of sewing again.
I made Naomi a couple of high/low hem skirts (Pattern hacked from New Look 6434), using up fabric I had in my stash.

 The chambray was originally bought to make my husband a shirt, but he wasn't keen on the print

I don't know what this crinkle pleated slinky satiny stuff is but I do know it was a swine to sew
I also made this outfit for Eloise, the skirt is McCall's 6931 and the top is New Look 6483. The fabric is from Micheal Miller and is called "Kiss of the Spiderwoman"!

 I've been playing with silver again as well. I made a sea glass pendant for a friend's birthday, and some captive rings for Naomi

That's about it for this month. Hopefully some actual stitching next month!

Those skirts are lovely, and so is the jewellery. You have had quite a productive month.

Wow! You are an amazing seamstress (note the hint of jealousy!) and your model is very pretty! Love the jewelry you've made are quite talented!

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Thanks for taking part in Shoehorned Gorgeousness this month. The skirts and top are lovely, they do suit your model.
Lovely jewellery too. I was gifted a beautiful piece of seaglass to make into a necklace.

I love that purple skirt, even though I can see how it would have been a pain to sew! The solver work is gorgeous as well.
