this is my first post- i bought these comic book sheets at goodwill for a couple dollars, and came up with this:

its basically just a simple bodice, with some straps (theyre actually safety pinned on at the moment, ive been to lazy to sew them on) and a circle skirt, even though it looks kind of pleated in the picture. it was windy or something i guess...?
sorry its not a very good picture, my computer isnt letting me connect my camera to get the other pictures i took. im terrible at computers!
if you cant tell, the sheets (now the dress i guess) has all different names of comic books and also comic book noises, like "shtonk!" its pretty awesome fabric, although i'll admit that i dont actually read comic books. but i do have a pretty sweet collection of xmen cards : )
anyways, maybe ill post better pictures once my computer starts working... thanks for looking!


so i fixed my camera/computer, so heres more pics:

Yeah and I would give my right breast, not the left breast for those sheets.  I know someone who has Smurf sheets from circa a long time ago.  I'm plotting to get them.  Diabolocal laughter

cute dress..

and I totally understand the straps...

for some reason I can sew an entire dress or shirt but when it comes to putting on the straps  I just get lazy....a HUGe portion of my clothes have saftey pinned straps or buttons..its pathetic

I have underdog sheets!  Maybe my daughter would like a dress?  I agree - post a tut!
