Sometimes I do a little sewing for people in the ageplay community.  Think cute little kid clothes, only in adult proportions.   As you can guess, the fabric costs many dollars-unless you recycle it.

This used to be an ugly shapeless jumper and a bedsheet:



See, I'd been commissioned to make a dress for someone.  So off to the local thrift store went I.  This was the original ugly sack of corduroy, fit for the 60 year old kindergarten teacher of your dreams and modeled by yours truly (who clearly does not fit into it).



A little resizing, making it shorter, and adding a few cute scavenged buttons and a ruffle made out of an old bedsheet, and... voila!  

Which just goes to show you can remake anything, you just have to find the right person for it.
