being the procrastinator i am, i reconstructed clothes instead of doing homework. they're nothing special.

this is out of a shirt that i never wore. i probably still won't wear since i don't really wear halters.

these are a pair of a shorts i made out of a tshirt and a piece of scrap fabric.

i made them out of a tshirt and a piece of scrap fabric. it's practice for another shirt i wanted to make into shorts. i'm not sure if it's worth using another tshirt for..

mm..maybe you could make a book a fill it with pictures and quotes and maybe have people write notes or letters in the book? or you could make friendship bracelets/necklaces/whatever?

thanks everyone! i used simplicity 5221


i'm sure you can find a dress pattern that's similar that's not so formal, or figure out how to do the top and a skirt and attatch them together.

for the back i just sort of winged it since i didn't know what kind of closure to use. after sewing the dress together, i left enough room so i could slip it on and marked how far down i wanted to opening to be. and then i cut open the back like this:

then to each piece i sewed a strip of the fabric like this

(black line is where you fold down before you sew it)

i then added velcro to the pieces but i'm sure you could use something else.

then to cover up the stitching on the straps that went on top, i sewed on a 'bow' which didnt really turn out like it was supposed to Embarrassed here's my crappy tutorial for the bow:

my spring break just started [yea i know, kinda late] and i haven't made any plans yet, so i decided to make a dress. since i'm too young to drive and my parents have to work i had to use stuff from around my house. i happened to have a pattern that my sister was going to use for her prom dress but didn't. so here it is:



back again

close up on the back

it's supposed to be a zipper on the side, but i cut open teh back and used velcro since that's all i had. the velcro is under the 3 strap thingys that go across the back.

i just made this for fun and don't really plan on wearing it. so what do you think?

edit// tutorial for the back is on the next page

so i've finally finished the dress i've been making for my sister. i don't really like how it turned out but i guess it'll be okay. it was my first time using a pattern and it left me very confused, but i eventually figured it out. i used : http://www.mccallpattern.com/item/M4712.htm?tab=&page=1
