Spirograph skirt out of a tshirt.
I used this wonderful tutorial Smiley! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8XLjjsUQyvc
Its so fun. I wish it was a bit longer, but it'll be great to wear over jeans or leggings, or even other skirts. Cheesy!



Dress from a bed sheet.
I got this bed sheet at a thrift store for a dollar, so I tried making a simple dress. No pattern, and thus it failed. Its a biiiiit tight, which usually happens when I try to make things fit without elastic :/! Hahaha. I'm still learning there.



Bed skirt to ruffly loli-esque skirt.
I used a pre-ruffled bedskirt to make this two tiered skirt with an elastic waistband. It was an easy project with some pretty good results, IMO.
I made a tutorial for it, Smiley! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJWik24p9bY
Its great for beginners!


Moo-moo to tunic dress.
I got the moo-moo from the thrift store for a couple bucks, I absolutely fell in love with the print. Rainbow, hellur!
I shortened it, used to fabric from the bottom to make a belt, sliced the sleeves in half and made little tabs to gather them.
Its pretty different compared to anything I normally do, but I like it Smiley!

Smiley!

Fantastic recons!
The Spirograph skirt is really cool, I've never seen anything like it! Also, I love how you used pre-ruffled bed-skirt- I love convenient, short-cut type recons and I love the sleeves on the moomoo dress...the print is pretty awesome too!
Cheers lovely, nice work!
