I have the exact same fabric from my grandmother!
Mind passing on how you did the skirt?

Thank you everybody!

In regaurds towards the questions about the skirt:
the skirt was made of eight t-shirt panels. I made the pannels by taking eight similarly sized boys' t-shirts, cutting up one side seam, across both shoulder seams, and removing one sleeved. I sewed up the other arm hole and spread out the t-shirt in the longest way possible. The panels were cut in an a-line type way, only alot fuller.

This year I decided to make all my own formals, but after making a nice homecoming dress I got bored and wanted something a little less traditional.
A couple of years ago I saw a t shirt wedding gown in a craft book and promptly forgot about it, untill I saw this: http://www.stylehive.com/bookmark/tshirt-ball-gown-522617
I instantly fell in love it, (who wouldn't?) but it costs a lot of money I don't have and fits a body that's a far cry from my own.

so I drafted my first pattern and came up with my own version:

That gives you an idea of the whole dress, but the bodice is a little wrinkled. I have hideous posture.

back lace-up detail (the ribbon says happy birthday on it..this is what happens when you live in an area with but one craft shop)

bettter picture of the bodice

The theme was masquerade, or something like that, which we translated to mean over the top sunglasses. I do not know how we arrived at that conclusion. It may have something to do with the fact that we are awesome.

Also, I feel obligated to mention the gloves were actually 1920s gloves. (eep!)

the end.

That is downright ADORABLE!
how exactly did you make the sleeves? With all my crafting prowess (read: none) I can't figure it out.

Okay, after that very helpful breakdown I'm beginning to think that now may not be the best time to try that particular shirt. (especially considering I have never even tried to set eyelets or anything like it before)

Which means I'm off to find a new shirt...

Thank you so much for the help!

So here's the thing:
I love this shirt

And I would very much like to wear it to homecoming, which is on...ohhh...october fourth. (Isn't it great how I give myself all this time to work with? not?)

And I haven't the slightest idea how to make it.
So if you happen to be one of those brilliant people who can look at a picture of a shirt and then break down detailed instructions for how to make said shirt, now would be a fantastic time to excersize this ability. (and if you do, I can personally guarantee you a gatrillion good karma points) (okay, so technically I don't have the power to bestow karma points. But I'm sure whoever is in charge of this will happily give you some)

on behalf of the under twenty five crowd (I'm sixteen XD), may I personally reassure you that there are still some of us who can properly appreciate  Stevie Nicks. Smiley
Your pendant is rediculously beautiful.

I'm not positive, but I'm reasonably sure the "hope not candy" image is a Bansky.

sorry, that was random. On another note, I really love the dream pendant, it's just gorgeous.
