Starting from the left...
I quickly whipped up this dress before we went on holiday this summer. It was never meant to be 'wearable' as such, it is a beach/pool dress.
I simply cut a rectangle, made a tube, shirred a couple of rows at the top, and made a belt. I also shirred the straps, as I wanted to be comfortable.
Next up, my vertical striped skirt.
This one was an old cotton dressing gown I bought in a charity shop for £1! I sliced off under the arms, and straightened everything out (hence the many seams). Then literally the same as above. Tube, shirrrrrrr away, wear.
The last two were old dresses that I cut up into a flat piece of fabric.
Can you guess how I made these?
Yes. Exactly the same.
Now whilst I love a good 'proper' project, I also love the simplicity and speed of a simple garment. I wanted to have lots of handmade garments for my holiday, but I didn't have much time. These were the perfect solution.
The next post will show a different project!
