Wardrobe Refashion sewing projects - Vintage to new

Here are some photos of my recent sewing projects. I'm sticking with my Wardrobe Refashion pledge to not buy any new clothing for 4 months and to only make my own clothing. So far, so good and I haven't even bought any new fabrics either, I'm just using what I already have. Click on the images for some more details on each of the items. The dress was made from semi-newish fabric from my stash and the other items were all made from vintage - a dress cut down to a skirt, a man's pajama top and women's pajama bottoms both became tops and so did a vintage tablecloth.

I love you tablecloth top! If it is not to much trouble, I would like to know how the back is finished? Thanks!

Wow! You clever thing you! Your designs are fantastic. The tablecoth top is a HUGE hit and I really like the Martha Stewart inspired top. I saw your post on the Wardrobe Refashion site and recognised your mannequin right away! You're going to be the belle of Strathmere - actually, I'm sure you already are!

Wow, two comments!
I'm glad everyone likes the tabelcloth top, it did turn out really nice. The back looks exactly like the front. I followed this pattern - http://www.flickr.com/photos/suzdeth/tags/tutorial/
But I didn't do the little tucks because of the thickness of the tablecloth fabric. I also cut it a little narrower on the sides so that it wouldn't be as full as the smock top.
I haven't worn tha tablecloth top yet, but I did wear the rayon top made from the vintage pajama bottoms. It's very comfortable and the fabric is nice and cool for the Summer.
I did some more sewing this weekend, including some crafty things. I'll post photos of those tomorrow.
