Great tat and skirt!

I'm so jealous! I've seen a lot of these scrappy and lacy shirts and skirts on here and I want one ... but I don't think I have the proper scraps. I guess I'll have to sew more other stuff before I can make something scrappy.

Beautiful job. I think you've inspired me to try my hand at pattern making.

I found this gem at the Salvation Army thrift store ... sorry it's not a very good "before" pic:

I'm always in desperate need of business-y work clothes, so I cut it up, added some ruffles and came up with this:

This is my first successful (as in I can wear it out in public) pattern-less creation. The plaid is some old fabric I "borrowed" from my mom a couple of years ago. I think I'll use what's left to make a couple of flower pins to go with it.

I'm a longtime lurker, and I want to say thanks to everyone on here. You've all inspired me to get my butt back in the craft room and get to work!

I have to dress business/casual for work, but I refuse to buy new clothes. Here's a $3 shirt I picked up at Salvation Army.

The old shirt:

I loved the fabric, so I turned it into a pretty pink camisole I can wear alone (during the hot Alabama summers) and under a jacket or sweater in the winter.  

The front:
The back:

This is a slightly modified Simplicity Threads collection pattern 4500. What was the front of the old shirt is the back of the new one. I switched out the pink buttons for some ones I recycled of a decorative pillow (and there's still about 100 buttons left on the pillow ... for a later project, I believe).

There are a couple of mistakes, mainly that my buttons are crooked. I'm the worst button sewer ever. Only a couple of them are working buttons ... there's no way I'd make the DH button me up that much in the morning.

Any comments/suggestions welcome!

This is great! I've added another project to the to do list ... I bet these are really easy to keep through the winter, too.
