15+ Gifted People Who Made Themselves Some Stunning Clothes Out of Nothing

When the heroes of our article can’t find a piece of clothing they need in a shop, they make it themselves. And their talent goes far beyond sewing: they know how to make a fashion masterpiece practically out of nothing. Bed sheets, tablecloths, dinner napkins, and even sleeping bags — anything can become material for their stunning handmade designs.

We at Bright Side got inspired by these 16 sewing projects, and we are already searching our homes for bed sheets and tablecloths that can be turned into gorgeous clothes.
