Fabric Covered Mirror
I had a plain wooden-framed mirror hanging around and I had been intending on doing something fun to it for a while. Today I decided to use some of my Mendocino fabric, which I got a few Christmases ago, to cover the frame, thereby making it awesome. The mirror is from Target, I believe, and the fabric is Heather Ross’ Mendocino kelp forest cotton.
Now I just need to decide where to put it…it may sit around for a while until I move to an apartment from a dorm next year! But it will still be super cute then too. :-)
I made it with basically the same method as the fabric covered box tutorial I use all the time to cover boxes.
I made a miniskirt!
A little while ago, I came to the conclusion that I need some party clothes…short skirts in particular. Oddly, among the plethora of clothing I do have, only 1 is a short, party-appropriate skirt. So I began my mission with a cut of tan corduroy fabric and a polyester lining.
It’s pretty versatile since it’s in a neutral color, and I can wear it to parties or around campus depending on what I wear with it. I just used a basic pencil skirt sloper to make it.

Plaid shirtwaist dress
Yay! Finally made a new dress! It’s made from a plaid shirting I got from a friend for free :-)
Pocket detail….it’s a kitty!
Yet another Modcloth knockoff
I was browsing about Modcloth a few weeks ago and discovered this gorgeous dress:
Plum Major Dress from Modcloth.com
And…I decided I wanted one like it, so I began devising a pattern! This is how it turned out:
A bit different than the original, but certainly just as awesome (if not more?)
I had difficulty finding the right color for the dress. Even this color doesn’t completely match but you wouldn’t believe how few plums and burgundies I could find online within my price range!
I wore it for Thanksgiving (twice! - I attended two Thanksgiving celebrations).
