Well! Hi everyone! I haven't posted anything here for about a year or something stupid, I started 6th form and they give you SO MUCH WORK I haven't had any time for crafting, mainly because I'm lazy though. But we've just finished our exams now so I was able to spend some time crafting without feeling guilty!
Anywho, this is a dress I made from a huge shirt I found in a charity shop that had the loveliest green n white stripes. The skirt part was made from the body and the bodice from the sleeves, I only had just enough fabric, width ways, to do the bodice so the buttons had to be non functioning, which makes it jolly hard to get over ones boobies, but oh well.
The pocket wasn't moved, its so cute! I will keep pennies and lollypops and other cute objects in there.

I was going to ware this to school today, but I woke up this morning and it was all cloudy, after days of hot sun! And then when I got to school there was brilliant sunshine for the rest of the day! AND the weather is ment to change and be all rainy tomorrow! Ghaaa!
Anywho, I hope you like it and I will stop talking now...

oh, i laughed so hard at that one too.

it's so adorable! silly weather. i'm tempted to steal one of my daddy's big shirts to make one of these! i've been in a sewing kick lately, but i have no car, and even if i had money for the bus, i wouldn't have money left over to buy fabric. oh boy i'm tempted!
you've done well. Cheesy

This dress is so summery, I love the green stripes too. How did you finangle it so that the pocket ends up in just the right spot? I can't picture the cutting layout, that shirt must have been really huge!

it's beautiful!
I am soooo going to look at big shirts when shopping second hand in the future. Thats the problem with being able to sew, you only end up buying MORE clothes instead of less...


We are stardust, we are golden,
We are billion year old carbon,
And we got to get ourselves back to the garden.
