Studio Tour!

Hey, SewChloe readers!
So since my blog is new I don't get any comments, this post wasn't requested but I thought my few readers would like to see where I work! Where all my designs take form!
I kinda have two places but this is my fav place to work although it only works in the summer!! It's kinda like my summer design house! lol, so anyway, Here you go!

So on my sewing table, I have my machine and my serger! 

I have a nice little stool that is super comfortable!

Ha! You can see the chickens through the window! 

My door!

And my chalkboard! I usually have a bulletin board on the other side but that never made it up here this year!

This is the front left side! That table is my main desk and I have some of my fabric, some ribbons, and just some neat stuff!

This is the view from the front window! Actually, it's kinda the side window but it's kinda the front window too! lol

This is the right side! It holds my foam and paint and some randomness! It also has the best internet in the corner only!! HA

Behind me on the right side, I have my pressing table! I have my little iron and it works great!

I have a calendar on the tree to give the tree some use! lol 

So above the door, I have a loft! This holds some doll stuff and excess fabric! It's really nice!

And let's finish off with Benji! He's the one who loves to come visit me! I thought it was funny that he was laying on the fashion book! lol, he's like I'm so fashionable! 

Well, I hope you liked this tour! If you want to see my winter studio, just let me know in the comments! Love you guys!!

Summer Love

This is my favorite picture!! 

Love this little clutch! Matches the dress perfectly! Clutches are something I want to get better at making! Any tips?

Love this pleated waistband!!

And the pleated hem!

Fun shoes to go with it! I would highly recommend white heels to upgrade this dress as well!

I designed this dress on the 4th of July! I was thinking of designs and this one popped into my head! Actully the orginal design was VERY diffrent! They do have some similarities! I was originally designing this for a doll dress because I was planning to have a lot of pleating on the skirt and that would be super hard to do on a human dress! So I changed it up cause I wanted it to work for me! It has a full circle skirt and twirls AMAZINGLY!!!!!!!! It has two rows of freehand pleating on the skirt, a pleated hem, and a wrap front! It has a pretty flower print on the back as a fun surprise too! I would have worn white heels with this dress, but I was fixing my current pair at the time of the photo shoot. But those are the shoes that work with this dress perfectly! I made this dress out of an old bed sheet too. Used the entire thing. Queen sized too! Recycle fabric guys!! Bed sheets work amazingly!!
So I was looking through the pictures and I realized that this is totally something Princess Kate would wear!!!! She is my total fashion icon and I love everything, I mean EVERYTHING she wears! The front just looks exactly like something she would wear! It made me really happy! I would have to make the back white for her to wear it but still!!! 
Anyways, I hope you enjoyed this post! What do you think I should make next?

Midsummer 30's

Love these shoes!! 

So this is another one of those dresses I made! I made this dress with the intent to make a fun ruffly dress, but it didn't work out! So I found some coordinating fabric and went with a circle skirt instead! I love the extra little ruffle beneath the waist band! Another dress that would be good with a fun brown leather purse! This dress so looks like it's from the 30's!! I love the little old fashioned twist there! The shoes are from Vanity, a store that is gone now.... I loved that store! Sunglasses were from Kohl's! I think.... Mom? Where were they from!! Lol they are my mom's!  We like to share don't we mom!
