Hey y'all! I've been lurking on here for a lonnngggg time and I've finally decided to post!
So I've been reconing like mad for the past few days and heres what I've come up with:

This was a big Camp Carysbrook shirt that I got a few years ago as a pj shirt (I mostly sleep in HUGE shirts hahaha) and i cut it up and knotted it in this mesh-y way. I thought it came out pretty nice.

This was a pair of size 11 (I've gained a bit of weight and I'm now size 15) shorts from Target. I cut them up the sides along the seams and sewed in some extra fabric I had left over after a shirt I made a while ago. Origionally they were a bit big when I added the fabric so I took them in a bit and they fit perfectly!

This used to be a pair of jeans that I also grew out of. I cut off the legs and sewed on some really nice jearsy fabric (I bunched it in a few places so that it hung really nice) and voila! A dress! The belt hides the uneven sewing job haha.

This was a Cute is What We Aim For shirt that I hadn't worn recently. I cut off the sleeves and the neckline and then folded over a hem on both sides (back and front). Then I sewed the hems and strung a ribbon through both sides and tied it at the side. I think It came out pretty nice for just a crappy t-shirt.

So that's pretty much it for now, I've made a few more things but I want to perfect them before I put them up!
Hope you enjoyed.

You did a great job. I really like the jean top dress. I'm working on several recons right now and that just gave me an idea. Thank you very much for showing us. I'm going to make a dress like yours.
