ok, so my mom got all this fabric that seems to come from the 80s and we didnt know what to do, so after a while of thinking i came up with these dresses.

At first i thought of making swimsuits...b/c the fabric i think was meant for that! either way, i took some 3XL and 4XL men's tshirts that i got for a dollar each and used them for the solid fabric.

So here they are:

This one is a very bright lime green and black design, very 80s/90s geometriclike designs. The skirt is a men's tshirt.

This one is just a striped black and pink fabric. the waist area was cut out of an old skirt which is dark blue.

This one is an aqua and black colored fabric with some sort of leopard looking design. The top was a regular tshirt i had but i like the boat neck, so i used it for this.

The brown one is completely made out of a tshirt. the black (top) is from an old tshirt i used to wear and the pocket fabric came in the bulk of fabric my mother got.

Let me know what you guys think.  Smiley

I agree with whereswally?? - random pockets make thing awesome.

Those pictures make my eyes hurt - not because they are bad, but they are so bright! You did a good job of translating the fabrics into something wearable today though.

Good Job!
