So I haven't been sewing at all lately  Cry because of work, etc.... but I came onto craftster this morning for the first time in FOREVER!!! and got inspired!! Love how it looks so classy when it's long and insta-mod when bubbled!






i think i posted this later in the thread, but here's the links to the very sparse tutorial-- just trust your instincts if you can't figure it out!!! Smiley

It looks great!  Did you use a pattern, or is it your own design?  Is
the fabric knit or woven?

Thanks! It's my own design... I like to do things the hard way! I think it's a knit fabric--something I picked up probably at a garage sale or thrift store sometime in the last couple years.

I love it! especially worn down. My mom told me a way to tell if something is knit of woven when I was little and that was if it stretches and has little v's its knit and if it doesn't its woven. I didn't really get that untill I took up knitting then I got what she ment...

Anyway, great job!
