For Valentine's Day

 Hello All! 

Valentine's day is coming up, and I have a dress to go with it! 

This is another circle dress...though it's probably more like a 3/4 circle skirt than a full one.




Isn't that a pretty fabric print? Material: curtesy of my grandmother


A white ruffle just finishes a circle dress off.

Another Dress for You


Hello All! 

Here's another dress for you. I made this last year with fabric from Hobby Lobby. (They have such pretty fabrics!)

 My grandmother had piping in her stash that matched the accents on the fabric!

The front skirt has two large pleats that line up (at least, in theory) with the bodice darts.

                   I like to tie it in the front, which crosses the ties in the back.


Of course, you can also tie it in the back...

Did you like this dress? Interested in learning how to make it? Please drop a line in the comments! Tutorials can be labor-intensive to create but I have one coming up soon, Lord willing, and ideas for a couple more. Feel free to request a topic or specific tutorial in the comments as well.

Winter Walking Skirt

 Hello all!

I've been into late 1800's fashion for years. This skirt and top fit the bill...


But then, it works for any era, including the present one! I made this skirt for Christmas, but the style and fabric pattern can go for all winter long.
(The blouse is the "Allegra K" brand from walmart.com)


It's a simple, wide A-line skirt with an attached waistband, side zipper and a hooks-and-eyes fastening in the back.


I may do a tutorial for this style of skirt sometime.
(The ruffled wrap is from my grandmother's scrap bag and I put it together)


To God be the glory,
Miss Humphrey

January Fashion Designs

 Hello all!

I had fun making this idea-page for January, inspired by a fellow fashion designer, a movie, and something I've made...which you will, Lord willing, be seeing more of!

Not much for today...talk to you next Monday!

To God be the glory,

Miss Humphrey

Welcome January


Happy 2023!

Let's start the new year out with some blue!

This is one of my favorite free-hand dresses. It's composed of a bodice attached to a almost-full circle skirt. I learned how to use piping to finish the neckline. 

Circle skirts are fun and pretty, but they do take more material and more work than other dresses I've made! It was handy to have some help finishing the bottom of the skirt. :)


Doesn't the blue and white print pair nicely with the eyelet? 

The fabric was from Hobby Lobby.


Happy New Year!

To God be the glory,

Miss Humphrey
