i can't believe you made a hoodie out of skirts!  the whole outfit is very creative.

So I am guessing that was a size XXL sweatshirt?? Man if I were in High School again I so would have made and worn something like that. great job

i think they were XL, but i don't really know, and sizes aren't consistent anyway.  also, i forgot to mention that i sewed the leaves onto the dress the wrong-side up so that they had extra texture.  that and the contrasting thread help them to stand out more against the dress.
thanks everyone!

Absolutely amazing.
How did you manage to have enough fabric from the sleeves to make a skirt?
thanks guys.  well, it was a really big sweatshirt, so i made most of the skirt from the sleeves, but i had to use a little bit of the teal sweatshirt to make it go all the way around.  the teal part is covered in the front by the leaves, so you can't tell i used a different color.
also, i sewed the sleeves onto the top horizontally instead of vertically.  (i sewed the sleeves together at the armpit and the sleeves met on the other side, joined by a small piece of the teal fabric, covered by the leaves) does that make sense?

i bought 3 sweatshirts (pink, purple and teal) at the thrift store near my house.  the total price was $5.60.  here is a pic of 2 of the sweatshirts (sorry, i cut the other one before i took the picture, but i think you can imagine what it looked like).


i cut the pink one into a halter style and used the remaining fabric from the sleeves to make a skirt and i surged all the edges.  the sweatshirt was really big, so i also took it in at the sides so it was more form-fitting.  then i cut leave-like shapes out of the purple and teal sweatshirts and surged the edges.  i sewed them down, overlapping some from one point on my left hip.  the pin is a crochet flower pin i already had.


and here is a closeup of the leaves:

My friends made some crazy brackets on the wall that consisted of several 3-M clips and a lot of tape, and they hung a thick braided wire going across the room (but it was only 10 feet or so). They attached shower curtain roller-things to some fabric and had a movable curtain. I don't think there's anything you can do for an 18-foot space unless you can screw items into the ceiling.

thanks for the suggestion.  i may try that, but i think whatever i do, i will have to wait til i move in to figure it out.

i recongnize that beaded door thing - urban outfitters?  i have one of those on each of my windows.
coolness

Yep! I get a ton of stuff there, because there is one near my dorm that has an entire basement of clearance merchandise. Eventually, everything at urban outfitters costs $5 or less!

an urban outfitters with a clearance basement!  that sounds amazing!
anyway, i was trying to do something like the hanging canopy, but i wanted it to slide back so i could open up the whole room.  unfortunately, our room is 18 feet across, so thats too long for a curtain rod.  any suggestions?

wow!  i really love everything in your apartment! 
i think i need some hanging baskets like the ones you have in your kitchen (and in your bathroom too, i think)
where did you get those?

i did make a diorama in one of my classes in the fall semester.  its not a scene from my life, though; its trees make out of wire coat hangers and a river made of broken cds and there are silver birds and some spheres and cubes around it.  i actually really liked the way it turned out.

this sounds like an awesome idea; how would one post pictures?  i think if i put the lense of my camera in the peep hole, the flash would wash everything out.
