Sew Stylings Sundays Poll

I love making new clothes and sharing it with you all.  One of the hardest parts of showcasing my lastest make is deciding how to style it. I go through so many options trying to find the perfect one.  But there are just too many to pick from sometimes.  What a dilemma?

Why not share with you all some of options I come up with during the styling process and let you all decide which option you like the most.  I created a poll and can't wait to get your opinions on styling options.  I am so curious to see which ones you will like the best!

Check out the options below, take the poll, and share any insights you have in the comments section. Every Sunday I'll post new ones and will be looking forward to hearing your thoughts. ;)

(Option #1: Styled here with Aldo Mease Mustard Pumps similar here and Coach Darcy Green Clutch last seen here)
(Option #2: Styled here with Wild Pair Fringe Platforms in Leopard Print  and Rebecca Minkoff Brynn Bag similar here)

Sew Stylish or Sew Super Stylish: Which one do you like the best? Vote below.
Don't forget to check back every Sunday for the results of last week's poll! ;)

Baby Girl Booties

Make #14

Ok, so my latest creation was not motivated by my desire to build on my wardrobe. This time I decided to help a cute and new little somebody create hers.  ;)

My hubby's first goddaughter was born about a week ago and I wanted to hook her up with something special.  Shoes are a must have in any girl's wardrobe and I wanted to give her a proper start.

I bought a pattern for these little booties a while ago and I decided to give it a go for this special little girly. Nothing like a pair of handmade shoes to set a girl apart!

So here goes it...

Stylish or what? I definitely think she will be leading the pack in the baby fashion circles. ;0)

Floral Green Ruffle Dress

Make #13 
Ruffles Galore! Anything with a ruffle on it is generally good in my book. Ruffles are so feminine and fun!

Leopard Pencil Dress

Make #12

Here's another little something I whipped up. I really like leopard print and wanted to make a nice fitted yet classy dress that I can pair with fun solid colored accessories. As I mentioned in my last post, my sisters were visiting for the holidays and they have been gracious enough to model my latest makes.  My sister wore this dress to a tea party we attended and I figured why not feature her rocking it.

Meet my model, Valesca, who btw added her own twist to this look.

P.S. Thanks Valesca for braving the stares on the streets while I took the pictures! You really rocked this look well! ;0)

Red Ballet Dress

Make #11

Happy New Year everybody! The Holidays have been awesome for me and has kept me really busy.  It has also brought many guests to visit me including my sisters. Yay!  My sisters coming to visit has an added benefit in that I have models to wear my makes and a lovely photographer to add a creative flair to the pictures.  Stay tuned to see how my sisters rocked my makes and the awesome pictures presented by my lil sis, Melissa. ;0)

I love this dress because it is so fun and has a lovely low back which I love! It was definitely a challenge to make but so rewarding to wear once I worked it all out! It was also really nice actually seeing it on someone other than myself when my sis wore it for us to see my first Cirque du Soleil show.  Btw, Iris was awesome. Def worth checking out if you're in LA! ;)

Meet my model, Gaithe.

P.S. Thanks Melissa and Gaithe for the awesome pictures!
