This time we have a shrug (that I based on one I saw here) and a square skirt.

There's actually a tutorial arpund here somewhere that is probably a better inspiration than this is:

I made it out of a very stretchy fleece, so all I had to do was cut along the dotted lines.

The shrug would look better if you DIDNT wear a white T shirt under it... add more color.

Gah! I love that shrug! And thanks for the tutorial, too, I must try that. Do you (or anyone else) have any suggestions on what to make it out of? I know you said stretchy fleece, but where did you get it from and what was it before you cut it up? I Like the skirt too, its purdy!

Really, I think any stetchy material would work well. Mine was simply a regular long sleeve shirt which I've had for years before I hacked it up, so I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to come by.

simplyme-I haven't actually worn this outfit out on the town yet, but I just got a green tanktop, yes!

How much polar fleece did the shrug take up? I have  1 m, would that be enough?

I don't think so; the sleeves would take up most of the fabric. Maybe if you used short sleeves?

i like your shrug! just so you guys know, the post of the shrug i think Bailey used to inspire hers is here (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=24372.0). i had it bookmarked because i liked it, but using a long-sleeved shirt is a really good idea!

I love your shrug--I am totally addicted to buying them, maybe I ought to make them instead. So you just used a long sleeved shirt? I understand your "cut along the dotted line" picture but I have a question: how did you do the neck line? If the shirt was a crew-neck, I imagine you had to cut it at an angle to make the shrug with a V in the front?  Does that make sense? Or should I go back to just making purses....? thanks! *kml*
