Well this is my first posting I've ever done on making things. The first one was made from a medium sized dress my boyfriend's mother was getting rid of. So I made it into a cute shirt to fit a 2x.



The second one, I already owned the white tanktop, but I really do not like sleeveless things for myself (chubby arms.  Sad ) So this shirt sat in my closet for a long time. I found a pullover silk shirt at a yardsale for $1 but didn't like how it fit. So I added sleeves! I really like the kimono style so that's what I went with. I might add a matching sash to the front later.



And last these were my favorite pair of jeans I bought for when I was going to college. Unfortunately I worn holes on the inner thighs ad couldn't fix them. So I made me a skirt! I always wanted one like this.




Hope you like these... I worked hard on them. Especially since I didn't have a sewing machine at the time when I made the second shirt and the skirt.

wow, those are all amazing recons! i especially love the skirt, i would love to do something like that, (partially because i've worn holes in the inner thighs of my favorite jeans too, but i hate to get rid of them because the store i bought them from went out of business so i can't go buy more!) would you mind telling me how you did that skirt?

btw, i LOVE the happy noodle boy avatar  Wink
