I love the navy blue dress especially. I'd like some details as to how you did that exactly =)

here's a tutorial for the purple dress:

I don't know the same use of fabric will fit for others as well.  I'm fairly small, about 5'2" and as you can see from the pictures, not all that skinny nor 'big boned'.  The main issue with fabric would be the sleeves fitting around your chest.  I'm small chested, so that wasnt an issue for me.  But if you're larger, 2 shirts may be needed, as this dress used up the entire XL shirt.

Here's the tutorial for the shirt:

I'm not going to bother with making a tutorial for the pink dress, because its made the same as the purple one, minus the gathers in the front.  Instead, it has two folds (are those called princess folds?) underneath the boobs, to make it fitted.

I liked using the Michaels shirts cause at $3 (when on sale) they're similarly priced to many shirts at the thrift stores.  And they're bright and new.  I found that many thrift stores where I go had faded shirts (expected, since they ARE used Smiley)

They're all made from ONE t-shirt each?! That's insane, you're so creative to be able to do that! They look great Smiley
