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.

Eco-friendly items, patterns, hippies, and more.

I'm on Ravelry, too!
