what's more fun than a barrel of t shirts?

I've been trying to purge my sewing space of the pile of t shirts that has overtaken my room.
Now mind you, that none of these t dresses or tops looks as bad as they appear on my dress form. I made no adjustment for size. I just threw them on to photograph.

vintage redo

I have been sewing like mad lately but, not posting to my blog. Sorry my bad.
I took the plunge and reworked this crazy vintage jumpsuit for Easter. It had uber wide legs, so wide I could have made an A-line skirt from each of them! And, it It was oh so outrageously cool as it was but, I doubt that anyone would have worn it for anything other than a costume.
I usually don't mess with pristine vintage as a rule, but I just couldn't let this fab piece sit around wasted.
The fabric is a Japanese hand painted polyester and it looks quite a bit like a colored Easter egg. Anyway, here's the final look. By the way, it looks so wicked cool worn with light brown cowboy boots!
