the blue part was just a really long rectangle, and then i folded it into pleats, ironed it, and sewed along the top to hold the pleats. does that help at all? i dont really know how to explain about the pleats, but if you just fool around with overlapping the fabric different ways, you can probably figure it out

i made this from a t-shirt that was too big, the waistband is from the t-shirt and the blue fabric is tshirt fabric i bought. it turned out a little more cheerleader-ish than i was expecting, but im still happy with it. i think i need cheerleader-style spanky-pants though, cause the skirt goes way up when i spin around     
oh and i dont think the skirt is quite as short as it looks in the second picture

the back

(sorry my mirror's so splotchy and gross)

this is my first post- i bought these comic book sheets at goodwill for a couple dollars, and came up with this:

its basically just a simple bodice, with some straps (theyre actually safety pinned on at the moment, ive been to lazy to sew them on) and a circle skirt, even though it looks kind of pleated in the picture. it was windy or something i guess...?
sorry its not a very good picture, my computer isnt letting me connect my camera to get the other pictures i took. im terrible at computers!
if you cant tell, the sheets (now the dress i guess) has all different names of comic books and also comic book noises, like "shtonk!" its pretty awesome fabric, although i'll admit that i dont actually read comic books. but i do have a pretty sweet collection of xmen cards : )
anyways, maybe ill post better pictures once my computer starts working... thanks for looking!


so i fixed my camera/computer, so heres more pics:
