i found this lil dress at goodwill... a huge polyester monstrosity that made my friend recoil in horror. but the collar was awesome, and i thought it had some kind of potential... you tell me...


i cut the middle out and inserted a thick gray band (made of new rib knit), shortened and puffed the sleeves and trimmed them in gray, tightened and shortened the entire thing and put a band around the bottom. i also changed the buttons on the shoulder from gold to silver Smiley


pretty fun!


here's the back


oh, and here's how it looked before i attacked it with scissors... scary! Grin


my sister bought me this tshirt at a thrift store a couple months ago... i seriously screamed when she gave it to me; back to the future is my FAVORITE movie ever, hands down, and i've been wanting a BTTF tshirt for forever. the only problem was, it was several sizes too big (to the tune of men's XL), so i turned it into a fitted baseball t. sorry i don't have a before picture Cry


here is the back. also, check out my sweet new jeans. I LOVE ACID WASH.

thanks for looking! please let me know what you think Grin Grin Grin

I'm loving the dress.  That collar is sweet, good job spotting something like that.  You're giving me inspiration, and I'm a second semester senior, now. so that's dangerous (loads of time on hand, grades are no longer sent to schools, I'm in the clear)

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.
