I have never tried to alter clothing until now.  I understand why everyone here loves to do this.  It is much easier to alter  clothes than to start from scratch.  I will be making more of these because it was fun to design my own. 

Step 1: Things I Used

I used basic sewing notations and a sewing machine.  I sewed some things by hand because my machine won't sew some things.  I used old jeans, a formal gown, a shirt, old 80's fabric, a dress, neck ties, inner tubes, snaps, and old buttons.

Love your outfits!<br>
They were so much fun to create and make. I love the inner tube one. Thanks for commenting and have a great fall!<br>Sunshiine
The inner tube skirt can be machine washed on delicate with cool water. I have not used a dryer to dry it but I think it would be ok on a very low setting.
Did you machine sew the inner tube? Do you know what needle size - sharp or blunted? Thanks! Really cute!
Thanks for commenting! I used a heavy needle designed for leather I don't recall the size but I think it was 18? I don't know what you mean about blunted. Never heard of that before. Yes it is machine sewn. Have a great day! Sunshiine
