ok, so this is A) my first post and B) the first thing i have ever sewed from a pattern. so, i just had to show it off. it was made from an old sheet i got at a thrift store a few months ago, and new look 6594, view H. i wore it to my husband's office with no "youre wearing a sheet" heckling, so the next step is to wear it in front of my mother...

wow that looks great! I tried to make this pattern but it turned out absolutely wretched. Yours looks so good and lays a lot better.

this looks awesome - way to go! I'll have to check out this pattern - this would be a good one with those thrifted linens we all find and know they are too sheer to wear in a single thickness. One would think that the poofy-ness of this skirt would ensure no undies would peek through. Yes, I'll definitely have to keep this pattern in mind.

Be careful standing on the bed in those shoes! "Looks like you're wearing a sheet?"  HA! No way!....

That's so pretty with those blue flowers. Could you give a hint how you made it? I like your shoes, too! (even though the mattress swallowed the heels..) Nice color match!

Now to wear it in front of your mother. Shocked.. Hmmm. I used to never do ANYTHING right by her.... Cry

uhm, i would say it isnt too difficult, because i did it with no garment-sewing experience, but it took me probably 8-10 hours and when youre dealing with the outer part of the bubble it really is a HUGE amount of fabric to deal with and the gathering was kindof a pain. also, when i was sewing throught all the gathers and the lining my machine started to protest a little, but it powered through. ive been reading amy mullin's book "sew U", which was a HUGE help, and i never would have gotten through the pattern without it as a refernce, seeing as i was unfortunate enough to be born into a non-sewing family...

thanks so much for all your comments, everybody! i really appreciate the feedback.

Girls can get away with wearing sheets.



Guys, well, not so much... no matter how much a fashion statement he may be trying to make...!
