1  Reconstructed Cowgirl in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by SeasonKay on: January 10, 2008 09:05:34 PM
I just wanted to share some photos of my latest project. This is a costume I just finished for an upcoming charity fashion show. I made the entire costume out of clothing, fabric and other notions from a local thrift store. It's 90% recycled (except for the corset boning and thread). I am so proud of this costume I almost don't want to put if up for auction.

2  First attempt at embroidery since I was about seven... in Needlework: Completed Projects by SeasonKay on: July 15, 2007 07:16:43 AM
My grandma taught me to embroider when I was a little girl, but I haven't done much since. This is my first attempt in years.

I've been working on this piece for the last few days. I didn't use a pattern. Just drew the design and started stitchin'.



It says "Bad man, bad heart." in the banner. My boy friend thought that was pretty funny...

Here are some more photos of my line at the fashion show.


ballerina in progress. My model was only 4'9" tall and aproximately a size 0-2. The dress that I wanted to use was floor length and size 6. I had to do a bit of altering.



I loved making this cloak. It was a lot of fun.



My boyfriend made the Chariot. He used some old schwinn handle bars and bike wheels that he found at the landfill, hockey sticks for the handles and pipe to form the shape (it even had two beer holders). He's very talented.


AND heres a link to the Wabi Sabi 2007 Fashion Show.

4  Beer can costumes... in Costumes: Completed Projects by SeasonKay on: July 12, 2007 07:15:38 AM
Last fall I was asked to be a designer in a fashion show charity fundraiser sponsered by a local non-profit thrift store. I jumped into the project with both feet and created four costumes out of aluminum beer cans, pop tops and recycled clothing. Everything turned out great! AND I made over $1000 for the fundraiser. It was an honor after all that hard work.
Here are some photos of my designs on the runway.




The royal court. The queen was pulled out on a chariot.


I made this costume out of PBR cans and pop tops. It turned out so good. Aluminum is surprisingly simple to sew on a machine.



Me and the queen.
