I'm a tad bit blonde, and I'm trying to figure out what would be best to do with this MASSIVE amount of fabric my boyfriend snagged for me (he works at a thrift store)









Its very stretchy. Origonally, I was just going to make PJ pants or something for everyone I know, lol, but its too wide of a knit, and you can see through it.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks bunches!

hoodies?  They would be layered over stuff.
It could become your group uniform!

Originally I was going to say a bunch of beetlejuice costumes. But if it's see through you'd have to wear clothes underneath.

Cover your windows with it if you want that prison bar feel?  Tongue

Sorry I'm not much help here.

There's a thread floating around somewhere in the completed recon section about making t-shirts into hoodies, I bet that'd make FABULOUS sleeves/hoods/pockets =D

~~

Here it is

What about a wrap top with a deep v-neck that you would wear over a tank top?

No suggestions for use, but it looks to me like that fabric is boucle knit.  I'm going to guess it's some kind of synthetic blend, just because it's fairly unusual to find fabric like this in natural fibers.

that would make the coolest beetlejuice costume ever - since it's all see-through-ish it would look all ghosty...

hoodies would also be pretty cool.  and comfy, from the looks of it.

You could make a tube-style dress with a waist drawstring and use it as a cover up for the beach. Or pool. Or whatever.. lol.

Create 3/4 leggings with them.

Pirate costume..

You could still do the pants, just line them with fun colors like electric blue or violet.

Ermm.. I'm out of ideas..

I know how you feel, you find a steal in fabric and go "Oh! This is GREAT!", you get it, and then you have absolutely no idea what to do with it.
