aha! I found this tutorial http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=119000.0#axzz2ZWfkoUJD which might be just the ticket. But does anyone have any other suggestions?

I don't know if this is quite the idea you're looking for, but you could use them (along with many other shirts) to make a quilt? I'm gathering shirts from mine and my boyfriend's collection to do just that. Once the shirts are too worn out, we add em to the pile Smiley

Here's a good tutorial- http://whiletheysnooze.blogspot.com/2011/09/fall-t-shirt-quilt-tutorial.html

Hi there! I've recently been fawning over this dress and upon closer inspection, it's just way too small for me. But looking at the pictures, it seems that it would be very simple to make my own!

The skirt looks like a simple circle skirt, no worries there, but I've never made a dress with a multi-part bodice like this one has. I absolutely love the look of it and I would love to replicate it.

Do any of you know of patterns, tutorials, how-tos on making a dress like this? Of course, free is always better but if you know of a good pattern I might buy, let me know! It's really just the bodice that intimidates me- I would love to see how all of the pieces actually interact, what is what shape, the angles of them all- and it would be great to get even just some reference. I also don't mind drafting my own patterns at all Smiley
I'd love to make this dress, but I'm fairly inexperienced at sewing garments with multiple parts, especially something as rigid and specific as this!

Thanks so much <3

I have received an amazing necklace from Bhevarri yesterday.

Unfortunately, the Krakken cursed it and it got damaged in the post...

 And here is a close up of the beautiful flower pendant and skulls(Yarrr)


I have attempted a rescue and wore it and got stopped TWICE in the school playground by people admiring it. THANK YOU Bhevarri it is really lovely! Kiss

Oh my goodness! If you want to send it back, I can fix it =( Or you can replace the wire, I suppose... poo! But I am glad you like the necklace =)
