More African mud cloth belts

Here's the belt in the brown and black mudcloth from Ghana. I used a different contrasting fabric (also made in Ghana) on the reverse side, so you can wear these belts on either side. I took photos of each. The metal loops are re-purposed curtain rings. I finished the edges with woolly nylon serger thread.
I love this fabric, and it's the "real deal", not imitation mudcloth. This fabric was hand-carried on a plane from Ghana.
We'll be selling these at Unique LA, Dec. 5 and 6.

Reunion Dress

Here's a lined dress I made for my high school reunion (and no, I won't say which one!) The top is a lined knit, with darts in front and back, and the organza skirt has a black silk lining. It zips up the side.

Very comfortable..self-drafted pattern.

Knit dress knock-off

Here's the cotton knit dress I made for my friend Jaime, which was in an earlier post (unfinished).  Here it is again, hemmed and finished. She gave me one of her favorite dresses, and I basically copied it. I love it with the white T!
