So, I made this skirt from a beautiful linen dress, but it was tooooooooo plain, so: Giraffe Appliqué!


This is a dress I made out of a up-cycled sheet from a thrift store. I feel like a present when I wear it cause of the big bow... but it's super comfy!

I used New Look 6748.

Thanks for looking!

giraffe!  That's a really cute skirt. And your present dress is very chic, for a sheet.  I'm sure that 80% of the women on my campus would drop big dollars on it.  And you made it from a two buck cast off.  Go you!

 Smiley SmileyNice dress!  Its a lovely flattering style!  I never ever wear dresses, but I like the empire waist a lot, so I will probably make it shorter and wear it as a shirt Smiley Smiley

I love both of them.  The giraffe is a really nice contrast against the rest of the skirt, and you look great in the red dress!  I like the bow.
