Been lurking too long on this site! I am very excited about this dress because I used no patterns, and only recycled articles of clothing. This is only the second dress I have ever made and I am psyched to make more. My bf was very enthusiastic about my new endeavors.

Upon finding the skirt, I realized I have never had a red dress.
Fabric detail

 A recon was definitely in order, but the fabric of the skirt was too sheer to wear out of the house. I ripped the skirt apart and layered up the fabric, then I found a black turtle neck I never wore and set to work. Much gathering, pinning, ripping, and cursing later, I had a fun new dress to play in on hot summer afternoons!


Detail of top


It is far from perfect, but I love that I made something to wear out of the otherwise unwearable. C&C appreciated! Thanks for looking!

That's a really nice dress ^^ I like the contrast of the fabric of the skirt with the simple, black fabric of the top. Well done, it looks really nice =)

I really like the contrast too - lovely choice of colours.

If you say 'plz' because it's shorter than 'please',I'll say 'no' because it's shorter than 'yes'.
