This dress was a shower curtain I found at a garage sale, I actually thought it was fabric when I first picked it up, its not the waterproofy kind,but it had little paris scenes and a cute black swirl on the top and bottom, again no before pics but here is the after:

I made this before aislinsmomee's great little tute(used it on the next one!), wish I hadnt cause I kinda messed up the bodic part so thats why theres a button... oh well it still looks cute

I teired the skirt part and I think that looks real cute, I made a matching one for little sis but she's napping, so no pics, and I got her bodice right! Ok one last pic: the back

And this next dress is a reconed skirt I found at a garage sale. It was a womens drawstring linen skirt with great detail at the bottom,
So I cut off the bottom half and then used the drawsting for the ties in the triangles, (thanks for the inspiration aislinsmomee)
Anyway I used the back of the skirt where there was a casing for the drawstring, but I used it for the elastic, and then just gathered the skirt and attatched it.
Wish I had taken before and progress pics, I really like how it turned out! Ok so on to pics.

Did you notice the red tights! -sigh-
heres the back

and here is a little closer on the dress

so what do yall think!?

When I was her age A LONG TIME AGO I loved me some red tights too Smiley

Great work! I want a grown up version of the top one.

thanks everyone!
mountaingrrl, i seriously debated whether to make them dresses or a skirt for me, but im preggo so i figure they would get more use than i would! But my eldest insists that i must now make one just like it for me so i can match too! But there isnt a shower curtain big enough! Wink

Ugh, trying to fit a preggo body is awful...maybe you need a matching headband Smiley

(and I'm not trying to be mean to you at all...my body grew exponentially till the end when I was convinced that I should be just draped in fabric to go out! I'm sure you're a beautiful pregnant woman! Smiley)
