I made a trip to JoAnns to pick up some fabric and a couple of patterns. All of the McCall patterns were $1.99! Although I had already seen a cool tutorial on Threadbangers(check them out on youtube) I had to get a pattern so my cuts were straight. In the above mentioned tutorial it stated that it would take 2-3 hours per tie. I laughed at that remark. But 3 hours later... I was no longer laughing.

Have you noticed how short the dresses are getting? I went to a high school graduation and saw some really cute vintage look dresses. Only problem.. the length. I don't think shortening the length to the butt cheek line makes it any cuter. Sadly, the dresses for my hula girls age group, has shortened in length also. So, we picked a pattern, pictured below.
And even this dress was much too short for me. That is the great thing about sewing, you can make adjustments.
We added a flower.
And this is the finished dress.
Throw a bolero or cardigan on and they are ready for church.
