Everyone, thank you so much for the comments!! I love to make things from retro items and also love making 'fantasy' type things like the LOTR shirt. I love the way you feel when you wear something unusual and that makes you feel like you are from another place or time, especially if it can work as everyday wear.

cheera-feel free to make your own version. It just worked on that skirt and I loved the mix. The dove/hem is a sort of fauxsuede that didn't ravel, so it didn't need hemming. I love not hemming!! Smiley

DRivero-yeah, they make mannequins pretty realistic, don't they?

RecycleMicol-I'd love to see your results with a vintage tablecloth if you find one. Shoot me a PM or post me a link here when you get it finished!! Smiley

mynta-I couldn't resist the deer!!! Smiley

diannab-Thanks! I did make my own pattern, but you could do lots of variations depending on what fabrics and trim you put together. Try it ! Its not too challenging!

flammable_feline-I'm happy you like it so much!! The green skirt is definitely a twirler!! Smiley

i reallly like the table-cloth skirt [green with the deers] that is just great!

I don't normally enjoy long skirts but this one works very well

~E! (with the !)

Thanks, NeedToBead !

beatniktoille- Thanks! I don't like long dresses too well, either, but it is more below mid calf, sort of a dressy length. You can't see it in that pic, but the bottom is fringed. Smiley
