I like them!

For the Choose Life one ("Wake me up (before you go-go)" instantly came to mind, so extra points for that!)...I'm not quite sure how it's ballooning, and someone already suggested turning it inside out and taking it in...another idea is that you could perhaps alter the sides and make them lace-up? Just a thought. I'm a fan of seemingly random zippers as well. Just a thought...

Those are excellent. I guess I'm partial the scarf one also but I like them all.

Maybe you could put pockets in the bunchy one.

I have a cook way of making darts that actually look good. I've been meaning to make a tute for them but I haven't had time. I'm going to have surgery in a week or so, perhaps I'll have time then.

In the meantime let me know if you want the instructions. I'll just type them to you.

Also, you could cut it in half. Make a skirt out of the bottom that lays flat against your most excellent body and then let the top flare out swing style.

I think for the last one, you should add a lining, and cut holes in the ballooned area so that it has pockets!

aw thankyou everyone for your awesome feedback! Cheesy
i think with the last one im going to try making pockets, so ill post again wether it works or not.
i tried to wear the scarf skirt out but it just kept blowing up because the fabric is so light!
so i think i may have to put a lining in that one.

i have worn both the red one and the boombox one out, im beginning to feel the addiction of making/customising my own clothes!!

and yayy big up the brit crafters Smiley x

wearing the scarf one over a pencil skirt would look cool.
