1  Batman Sheet Repurposed in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by LittleLaura on: September 05, 2014 08:45:39 AM
I found this old Batman sheet at my Salvation Army and decided to make a dress out of it. The top is made from this pattern http://www.lekala.co/catalog/dresses/5199#model and the skirt was made using this awesome circle skirt calculator http://byhandlondon.com/pages/circle-skirt-app.

2  Paisley Chiffon Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by LittleLaura on: June 03, 2012 02:27:48 PM
I was looking for a quick project to do one evening with some fabric that I didn't know what to do with. I decided to make a simple empire waist dress using a cotton/spandex blend (the lining) and some printed chiffon. I finished the whole thing in an hour or so. Yay for quick projects!

3  Wishing For Summer Sundress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by LittleLaura on: January 24, 2011 04:28:35 PM
It is so cold up here in Nova Scotia!  What a perfect time to make a sundress  Undecided  This is my first time using elastic thread and I really enjoyed it.  I used this tutorial  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=252608.0 but left out the flounce.  I still have enough fabric to add it in if I want but I think I like it without.  I really enjoyed making this dress and I had it done within a few hours.  Now if only the nice weather would get here so I can wear the damn thing  Tongue

4  Quilted Skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by LittleLaura on: January 16, 2011 12:58:06 PM
So, I have a mild (read: major) obsession with StumbleUpon and one day came across this tutorial for a quilted skirt http://www.crapivemade.com/2010/06/tumbler-skirt-tutorial.html.  This happened to coincide with two boxes of fabric sent to me by my mom and grandmother.  Coincidence?  I think not  Cheesy  And thus a quilted skirt was made!

5  Skirt From an Ill Fitting Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by LittleLaura on: January 09, 2011 05:12:21 PM
Hi everybody!

A few months ago I found this dress at a thrift store.  It sat in a box since then though because it never really fit properly and was really baggy on top.  I finally decided that what I really liked from the dress was the bottom so I chopped the thing in half and made a skirt!  All I did was make a casing on the top and thread a strip of elastic through.  Easy-peasy  Smiley

Here's a shot before...

And two after...

I can never resist a twirly skirt  Grin
