That's so inventive and much cooler than I would have imagined! (sorry, that's supposed to be a compliment  Wink) It looks like it obscures the view from outsiders but still allows in plenty of light. Seriously, though, I would not be able to keep my hands off poppable curtains!

This is beautiful! The color and shape are gorgeous together. And perfect for His Purpleness!

This is such a fantastic way to redo a sweater! The buttons and trim complement the main fabric perfectly and the cut is adorable.

I'm pretty sure I just tried to reach through my screen and grab that cloak. I want to wear that even though I'm sitting here in 90 degree weather. I love the collar in the back. And the dresses look so comfortable! Everything is beyond cute!

This is incredible! I've just been trying to convince my sister to put a Wild Things mural in her daughter's room. I wish this was on my wall when I was a little kid...and by "when I was a little kid" I mean now. Beautiful job!

Thanks, everyone, again! I'm always pleasantly surprised when other people aren't appalled by my Frankenclothes.

That looks sweet! I'm a little puzzled by how you did it exactly... how did you get the top twist (flower) to hold?

I'd love to explain my technique, but it would be a huge lie to call it that. I don't even know what I did - I just pinned and sewed frantically when I had a shape I liked...it's really a mess of thread and knots under that button!

Thanks, all! You're too kind.

I so woulda passed that up even for 25 cents.  I am amazed at how other people vision things.

There are few things that I wouldn't buy for 25 cents... Ha - I had absolutely no "vision" when I bought this. I just started cutting and sewing and made up as I went along. There were some scary in-between stages.

This is so cute! I love the huge buttons. And the tiny ones. It looks great gathered that way.

I made a simple striped shirt several years ago, but only recently realized how boring and poorly fitting (not to mention poorly constructed) it was. So I just added black bands at the arms, waist and neckline, puffed up the sleeves a little and added a smidgen of Elvis Costello (stencil).  It's still poorly constructed, but it now has Elvis Costello! Hooray!

And now pictures:

Thanks for looking!

Sorry, the title is the only thing Pythonesque about this. I got this devastatingly unflattering dress for 25 cents (there were even velcro strips for removable shoulder pads. yeesh.):

I chopped it to bits, turned it around, added a bit of puffiness and now it's kind of like a sack. Also, if I stand in a certain way, it also makes me look like I have a huge ass. But I can live with that. It's the most comfortuhbuhlest dress ever, I'm pretty sure. I love it.

A belt for a little shape, but I honestly prefer it without because then I feel like I'm wearing a tent (in a good way).

And with pockets! And the most accurate color:

Thanks for looking, everyone!
