I'm loving reading this thread! Y'all are so good with techniques. I have started a destroyed/salvaged dress made from hand me downs from my family. It's for art class, and due next week. I have a bit more done on it than the picture shows, but it is at school, so here is the first progress picture:

Ok, another from me. This stuff looks a little bit rag bag to me but it's whimsical and interesting.

O_o OMG.. that airstream is just.... :O :O AMAZING! *MUST.. HAVE.. FLOWERY.. HIPPY.. AIRSTREAM..*
I agree about the clothing, although the photos of all the girls together really helps pull it all together I think, very traditional gypsy traveller. Thanks for linking Smiley

I had seen Magnolia Pearl clothing before (linked in More Scrappy Inspiration thread) but had not seen her car and airstream.  Wow, gorgeous!   Cheesy

Ok, I've temporarily given up on the orange dress.. buuuuut today I got a bit bored so decided to start a new one!
The top of this one is the top chopped from a cotton slip, tea-stained. The bottom floral part was a vintage circular tablecloth , chopped the waist hole closer to one edge so it cascades down the back Smiley

I don't have a total *here's how it started* pic, but I have just the basic dress all stitched up:


And then some progress shots, this is what it looks like at the moment, but I'm in desparate need of more thread!!






I wasn't going to add lace.. but I couldn't find anything else, so lace and crochet it is! More progress shots soooooon!!
It started off being able to slip straight over the body, but the more I stitch on, the smaller & smaller it's getting, so I think I'm going to have to chop down the back and add some buttons once I'm finished Cheesy

Progress picies! I'm unsure of where to take it from here, it's still able to slip-on without the need for buttons & I'd quite like to leave it that way.. what do you think?

I'm also unsure whether I should carry on stitching the lace down and over the hips, or to leave to at the waist level it is now?









PS, you can find a tutorial for the back reverse applique doily here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=358315.0

Personally I think I would like to see more of the color and/or the motif of the roses brought up onto the bodice in some way....either that or more definition of the waist....or, bringing lace down onto the hips.  Overall just want to see either more of a blend between the elements, or more definition between them....

But that's just me!
