So, one day i was surfing through craftster and found this thread.....  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=107335.0   and i thought to myself ' what an awesome idea!' and i asked her if i could borrow her idea, modifying it of course, ond she said it was fine.... now, although this will be my homecoming dress, homecoming isn't for a looong while, so these are just a couple pics of my floor modeling said dress.

thats the dress.... i'm quite fond of it, actually. and i'm proud that i got a Kenny Rodgers, AND an Oscar De La Renta tie, for only 99 cents a peice.

a cool angle... cuz i could

that is the bedsheet dress. i love it too.. its the perfect dress to frolick through a meadow in...lol

close up on the fabric..

i hope you like them!  comment if you wish

As you sew, so shall you rip. Don't fear the ripper.

But I really LOVE the tie one! Would love to see it on YOU to see how it fits, instead of on the floor....
Terrific adaptation!

wow, i mean, wow...ties originated as a symbol of chivalry. sigmund freud described it as "Relating to a phallus especially as an embodiment of generative power." well, you have just changed the face of the tie as we know it. this dress it feminine and fun. looks like the "generative power" now, will be the excitement unfolding around you when you wear this dress. have lots of fun and don't forget to make a handbag!
