Great job on all! You're right - that button style rocks! I think the last one is my favorite though. I like the way it flows...

all your project look so good!
i like the first one mostly (probably because of that wonderful blue/turquoise?? fabric you used, that maches so perfectly with grey one), but nevertheless all other project are also so cool.

besides, i really admire the ability of recycling clothes. my projects are based in almost 100% of cases on making something out of untouched fabric.
but when i see project like yours, it encourages me to try out something new.

thanks for being such an inspiration!!!  Wink

I love having a base piece to work with and changing it up a bit to give it a new life Smiley
It's a lot of fun, I usually put it on the dress form and chop away from there!  You can find some awesome prints too  Wink

I particularly like the second one, with the red flowers. But I really like your photographs, and the striking lighting from below.

Thank you soo much! That makes me feel super good about my pics. I model and photograph and it's not the easiest thing to do, this "photoshoot" was an experiment and I think it went rather well Smiley

Really good job on all of those, that's a cute style and it works well on you. I think the red and black one with the striped flower is my favorite.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

great work, beautiful dresses Smiley

i was just wondering what shape the fabric is for the last dress's skirt part, i've been meaning to try the side slouch in a couple of skirts but not quite sure how the pattern looks beforehand. if you have a rogh description i'd be really thankful Smiley

I love the blue dress and the short red and black dress, totally great style.

I also love how in the first four pics you progressively reveal more of your tattoo, great artsy flow!

It was part of a dress that hung really low, I kept the length but just folded and sewed it up near the middle, make sense? I have no idea how to explain it other than that :/
