So mostly done, almost there, not sure if I have time to upload today but will try to by tomorrow night.

I have also received Dannyn's in the post yesterday. I just love how everyone has gone to town on the colour, and so much variety of fabrics, just not something I could have done from my stash...

I agree with KBrison, think it's going to be a stunner. I'm thinking for each section, embroidering everyone's crafty name on the reverse to remember by. Has anyone else got any ideas I could steal??
73  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Two new skirts from ill fitting dresses on: April 14, 2013 05:21:42 AM
So I am always really jealous of everyone who has access to thrift stores, you seem to get some amazing bargains! My closest thing is ebay and I bought both of the dresses below including postage for less than 5 each, both new with the tags.



However, they were both ill fitting at the top because I am very pear shape so very little on top and no dresses ever fit, I have to make my own. So i decided to turn them both into skirts, et voila!



The black jersey skirts was easiest, I only had to turn the top hem down as the mid part was already elasticated, the floral one works as high wasted but I had to unpick the whole top part (re do the zip as I accidently pulled original off dammit!) and then re sew the top hem and add a hook and eye. I kept the top parts as thought the floral straps may make a nice handbag strap and I'm sure I can bling something up with those sleeves.

Now just waiting for Spring to arrive although it seems to be brightening up. I didn't use a tutorial in particular, just read through a few but if you do a search you'll find oodles to look at.

Thanks

Hi,

To add to the update I've received Homerof2's blocks and Kbrison's. They are all utterly amazing and I am itching to sew it altogether!

I've pinned Sunday down for completion, fingers crossed

So posted the first half today and the second final half will be going out next week, such a shame it's coming to an end but looking forward to putting my first quilt together!

So Dannyn's is the first packaged up and ready to go  Grin

I'm just loving trying out these blocks without the commitment of making a whole quilt!

Thanks for the birthday wishes everyone. It was great to be back home and eat cake. For once we have missed the family boat for Easter and as my husband does shift work, I have 4 days of sewing to myself and I'm very excited. I think two of my packages will go Saturday and two on Tues 2nd as I don't want to rush them all on Thurs/Friday.

My mum bought me some scrap fabric bundles for my birthday so it's great to have more selection to choose from. Homerof won't just get orange now Smiley

Sorry I've been on the quiet, had a business trip to Scotland, glad it was last week and not this one, it's full of snow now!

I've received Homerof2's blocks today and they are just outstanding. I'll be working hard on my selection this weekend, hoping to have most of the pics up by Sunday night. It was my birthday yesterday and my familt bought me fabric, hoorah so I have a bigger selection for the next blocks!

I love the gallery, it is so full and the colour combo's are very inspiring to me as are the many different designs. I've not gone too out the box with quilt blocks before so I'm really enjoying this one.  Smiley

I posted my first block for kbrison - note to self, don't try to sew the next ones in the evening when you are tired, it's too technical for that time of night.

I totally agree but I was too desperate to get one done! Hope you like it and let me know if the colour combo doesn't suit as I've not used all the colours in your questionnaire  Smiley

Also, the bottom left light orange triangle looks dodge, there was a bit of thread in the way, it does sit flat and nothing wrong! x
