I made this sundress out of a big, old, shapeless dress I got at salvation army. I keep playing around with different belts and scarves, cardigans, jackets, jewelry, etc. I feel like a little girl playing dress up... anyway, it has elastic in the waist and side seam pockets (my favorite!)

back view--


pockets!


I also made this blue top out of some old silk pajamas I never wear.



Close up of the roses--



another unflattering picture. sigh.

Pretty neat.  I like how you turned your big dress into a nice fitting one, it suits you and you look great in it.  I also like how you made a really nice shirt out of pjs.

That dress is so beautiful!
I love it.
I have a too-big dress I got at goodwill and I really need to do something with it.
Unfortunately, I don't think I'm skilled enough to do this. lol.
