So I was planning on cleaning my room, but I kept finding scraps of fabric, ribbons, lace, you name it!  Suddenly it hit me; why put everything away when I could just sew it all to a vintage slip I had laying around? And thus began my voyage...A week later, I ended up with a pretty sweet skirt...and an even messier room  Grin
Without further ado, here are some pictures:






Just in case you can't tell; I am super pleased with my skirt  Cheesy  I think it's possibly the best thing I have ever created!

I have a little army jacket laying around, which has a great shape, but which is rather boring, so I'm thinking of giving it a similar treatment.

I think yous looks every bit as great as those on that website. What a great way to put together all those scraps! I just wish it would look as good on me as it does on you!
