I have two weeks off from school and wanted to make the most out of it.

cute dress from McCall's pattern:



I added a ruffle at the bottom.

Here is a close up of the fabric covered buttons I put on it:



The dress was made in really cheap fabric I found at walmart.  I definitely want to make another one.

Here is a cute striped shirt I made up from remnants:



The straps crisscross in the back.

Here is a circle skirt I made from a tablecloth I found at triftco:



The skirt was soo easy because the tablecloth was already a circle and I just cut a hole in it.

Bestest for lastest:



It used to be a duvet cover.  I love the polka dots!!  I used a vogue pattern but I had to deviate a little because I didn't have enough fabric for a full skirt.



the back is my favorite part!

I love the polka dots on the second dress, but I think I like the shape of the first dress even more.  Smiley

I love the two dresses. They are both soo cute, and the fabrics are adorable. I love the ruffles and the buttons on the first dress. Awesome job.
