What do you do with fabric when you can't sew?


This fabric I bought when I thought I could sew myself a skirt, but didn't want to waste this material as well.
This material I bought here.  I loved the floral, and there is an eyelet design in it that I just adore.


I sent it to the tailor with a few pictures of what I imagined.


The blue skirt, I just described it to him, and we bought fabric at the fabric store attached to his shop.  The dress I wanted was this.  The peplum skirt was inspired by this

So here are the results.
Just so you know, with the fabric and everything, I spent less than $100.  It also took two weeks to make all of the items.  Not too shabby.



Funny, when I asked for the exposed zipper, he asked several times to make sure I wanted the zipper to show, and if I was sure I wanted it to be red.  Yes, in fact I do.

What a great idea!! I love the dresses...you look fabulous! I love the exposed red zipper too. Way to be creative! Just because you can't sew (or think you can't anyway) you were still VERY creative - I applaud you!
