I am impressed with how many items you made from home decor items--tablecloths, curtains, etc.

If you had not said, I would have thought they were just fabrics your purchased!  Excellent upcycling!

I particularly love the last dress...and the crochet tablecloth top...and the reconned jeans... Cheesy

I love the clothes, but I'm more blown away by your photography skills!  This stuff looks like it belongs in a magazine!  My favorite outfit is the potato-print dress and lace bolero.

Thanks for all of the feedback!  It really brightened my day.

lucy32-I love vests too!  They're a great way to add dimension to an outfit AND are super-simple to make (no arms to have to mess with sewing on)  Wink

bec89-I would love to make a tutorial.  I will have to research how tutorials are done and will make one as soon as I have the time.

alwaysinmyroom-Thank you, I have been blessed with a school sewing room with lots of old sheets and curtains that are fairly attractive/good quality. 

fluffybaka-Thanks so much.  This is one part of my final project this year, and I figured taking photos of the clothes would be much more fun than hanging the clothes for the exhibition.  (Kudos also to Linn, the blonde one, for her photographing skills of me, the brunette!)

Oh wow! I really hope you are pursuing a career in fashion. Everything is so well put together. 

How on earth did you manage the text on that black shirt? I've thought of using fabric pens, but I'm not convinced that's the best way to go.

Talentof_None I have screenprinted the text onto the shirt!  You should try screen-printing if you have not yet.  It produces really crisp results! Smiley

That's so kind!  I love that necklace too--it is such a strange-looking thing, but really cute and whimsical. Wink  Everythings better if it's made by someone you know.  Ah, thank you, I wish that were me, but my lovely friend, Linn is the one who modeled.  She is truly a natural beauty!
