I came across a pic of this dress, but I couldn't find it's original post.

It looks very easy to make, but still, if anyone knows if it's a diy dress, and if there is a tutorial or more pictures of it's back- that would help.
If anyone got any information about it, or even where they sell a similar style, I would be thankful!

Thank you guys,

 toobadsosad  - when you fold pants in two you get this "bump" in the crotch area, so I just sewed it in a straight line (what you get when you fold a skirt in two.) I hope this explains it.

Thank you for your lovely comments!  Kiss

for the first stripy dress I used Jersey fabric, it's quite thin and really soft and cosy.

It's been so long since I've posted my clothes here (I missed craftsters!!!) so this way I have a bunch of old and new things to post.

I don't really use any patterns, most of the time I just take an existing garment that sits well on me, I trace the parts I need (like shoulders for example), and than make all the needed changes - width, length, etc.

These two shirts are very much alike, only the neckline and the length are different.

This one can be worn both as a shirt and as a dress.

Another shirt that I like to wear with a belt, it's made with a wrinkled sheer fabric.

This is a jersey summer dress (can be worn in the winter as well, paired with some tights).

This is my latest summer dress, super easy to make since it doesn't really follow your figure.
It's made with a sheer fabric so I wear it with a black tube dress underneath.

The next two dresses are made almost the same way the yellow dress but they are made with a Lycra (the stretchy fabric, hope this is the right name), this way the are tighter.
The black dress is longer and can be worn in different lengths, I fold it on the bottom any way, so it looks good both ways.

This is an evening dress ( the most complicated I've made so far), it has a collar (screwed it up) and some gathered sleeves (which are very uncomfortable since the fabric doesn't stretch). But overall I'm very pleased with it, and I guess the imperfections aren't "that" noticeable (at least I hope so).

A closeup

Thank you for taking a look, let me know what do you think!

Found some old pair of pants and a skirt that used to belong to my mom... wanted some high waisted skirts for a long time...

Here is the result -

This one used to be the pants, unfortunately they are one size too big for me - but that is solved with a belt. 
I just cut off the legs, straightened the crotch and hemmed it, this way all the beautiful details and pockets are maintained.

This one used to be a long skirt, was too big  as well - so I inserted a new elastic.

I'm in love with them, the can be worn in many different combinations and styles.
What do you think?
