This is my first foray into clothes making. It's a paperbag-waist skirt made with vintage fabric I picked up at the Methodist rummage sale. I got several yards of the fabric for $1.00 I think. It was really quick and really easy even for a novice like me. I was able to complete it in about an hour or so using this tutorial.

My next find was this vintage mu mu. I absolutely love the pattern, especially the color. The fabric is really crisp, so I don't think that this has ever been worn, or at least not very much. Haven't quite decided what to do with this little beauty just yet. I was thinking of cutting it of short, altering the sleeves and making it into a sundress. I also considered cutting off the bottom half to make a skirt. The fabric would be great for just about anything. At $1.49, it's a steal.
