Sharing my dresses with you!! 2nd Edition

Update: All the dresses have gone to homes--it took less than 24 hours, and less than 12 for most! I got sweet emails from so many of you and I'm so happy we were able to connect--and I hope you love your dresses!

This is a very special kind of post! I don't do custom sewing but I do love to share my creations with the world, sometimes in ways other than hopefully inspirational blog posts ;). Last summer when we thought we were moving, I started cleaning out the spare closet and shared a handful of dresses I'd made that no longer fit me or are no longer part of my lifestyle.

Those dresses went like hotcakes!! Within minutes of publishing the post I had quite a few emails about them. One of them, I was so excited, was from an old college friend who was perfect for the very cool pale blue lace overlay full-skirted party dress she wanted! How cool is that?! Of course, all my readers are my friends once I get emails from them =), and I'm just so happy when these pieces can go to good homes.

As with last time I did thisI don't want any money for them, other than to cover the cost of shipping unless you live around Portland and want to pick one up. Please take a look through these 10 super cute, well made, fun and playful dresses and send me an email to reserve the one (s) you want!! Most of them have only been worn once or twice.

Dresses for the taking!

So, here are the dresses. Check out the dress gallery for more photos/How to Wear DIY outfit photos for quite a few of them. They're roughly in a seasonal order, and they range from size XS to M (thanks to my medication- and nutrient-deficient diet-induced weight fluctuations). I've included waist, bust, hip, and/or length measurements for each.

1. Lightweight denim with lace! Gone!

Bust: 41" (roomy fit)

2. Rose maxi! Gone!

Waist: 28" (with stretch)
Length from waist: 40.5"

3. Neon green maxi! Gone!

Waist: 30" (with stretch)
Length from waist: 39"

4. Navy knit maxi! Gone!

Waist: 28" (with stretch)
Length from high waist: 36"
(same pattern as the one above, but it shrunk in the wash so is a petite size now!)

5. Blue plaid corset dress! Gone!

Bust: 38"
Waist: 27.5"

6. Minty linen corset dress! Gone!

Waist: 28"

7. Grey knit everywhere dress! Gone!

Bust: 38"
Waist: 31"
(note: I have narrowed the skirt since the first photo so it's less full and gathered than it looks on me)

8. Black lace overlay shift! Gone!

Bust: 41"
Waist: 33"
Hips: 41"

9. Black/white flared hem! Gone!

Bust: 38"

10. Classy wool suiting dress! Gone!

Bust: 36"
Waist: 29"
Hips: 37"

Want one?? Instructions!

If you're interested in one or more of these, send me an email with your address! They will go first-come, first-served. I want to get this wrapped up by next Thursday, 7/14.

I've done some calculations and I think shipping will be about $4-8, plus the envelop at about $2... so the shipping cost will be $10. If you're the first one for your dress, I'll send you a PayPal invoice for $10 and ship your dress. (If you want more than one, only $5 for each additional dress in shipping.) (I can only ship to US addresses, sorry!)

So get shopping and measuring and let me know which ones you want! THANK YOU so much for helping me clean out my dress rack and send these lovely creations to good homes!!
