What I have been up to!

The blue polka dot dress is from Simplicity 3778. Since it is from cheap fabric, it will be a nitie:). The blue and purple is reconstructed from a thrift store find. I loved the fabric, but it was an old granny dress. No is officially a nitie. The bottom of the orange sundress is a vintage sheet...also found at the thrift store. Not sure if I will add orange straps or also considering adding a ruffle to the bottom. The bottom one is a top that I could not wear in public because it exposed way too much 48 year old cleavage. I cut if off and then sewed it to a tube of fabric that I have had for 13 years. It was too big, so I added elastic under the bodice. This one is a house dress.
