Wow, thanks ya'll!

The waist on the tan skirt was made by pulling the stitches to remove the collar where it attaches to the skirt and cutting  it in half. I made the rest of the waist from band from a sleeve making it wide enough to equal the unfolded collar. It is one folded peice, the lower edges  presssed under. attach this to ends of collar peices. you should have a sort of pocket you can slide over the raw edges of the skirt peice. stitch in place along seamline.

I did it that way so I would have more "finished" looking edges- I don't have a serger and dread sewing seams twice!

the cuffs of the shirt made the belt loops, and gave the waistband some body (if I had to do it again, I would use interfacing in the waist, bcuz the loose cotton weave is too slouchy.)
 
I stitched on the buttons by hand, as well as putting an extra tack stitch to hold the collar points in place

Hopefully this is coherent!

you're dress is so pretty and feminine, and I love the teal color.  That style is so cool- I have never seen it before the Swap you mentioned.

Its true! even after i posted enough comments to put up a pic I was too lazy to do it!   Grin

These are some reconstructed  mens shirts,  and a teeny tiny angora pullover that became a shrug. I am really pleased with the tan plaid skirt waistband, so I included a detail shot. I was so excited that they actually came out the way Iplanned.  

This is my first post-I would love to here anyfeedback- I am not entirley sure I am even posting these pics right...

These are so cute! Alas, I live in Texas where there is little reason to wear a cool looking, warm hat- especially now.
