1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Broken serger on: July 27, 2006 01:20:52 PM
My serger's not feeling too well right now...
I'm working on a sweater, and a few other garments.
Is there a way to finish the seams just with a sewing machine?
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Metallica Pants on: July 19, 2006 12:32:45 PM
Another Tshirt>>>Pants reconstruction...got the shirt from a thrift store. Waistband from another shirt from a thrift store...made the waistband a bit too big, gramma gave me these wild laces to use for drawstring.

Honestly, does the wacky drawstring look okay?


Bad Ass pose (i know you love my 'do):

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / another sweater from scratch on: July 17, 2006 11:54:13 AM
It's black jogging fleece...with felt stars/gun cut-outs sewn on by hand.
I made it from scratch...without a pattern, which is how i make all my hoodies.
This one was for a personal swap. Excellent!


It was before i discovered ribbing, so I just hemmed the bottom and the sleeves. There are also some stars on the back of one of the shoulders.

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Black/Camo sweater for Bro on: July 13, 2006 11:05:18 PM
I made this sweater for my little brother. I've got a habit of making things for people, like all the time. After I made it, I got him to try it on, but the neck hole was way too small...so then I re-did it, and it fits him perfect.

Here it is on the floor:

And on my brother:

lol i didnt realize until i was putting up the pics that his shorts are also camouflage.

thanks for lookin'  Wink
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / More stripes... on: June 29, 2006 06:20:15 PM
I was bored so I made this skirt today...I think that's all I'll be doing until I find myself a job for the summer:

here it is up close:

and another pic for fun:

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / black/white striped summer dress (big pics) on: June 28, 2006 10:03:55 PM
I don't own a dress...so I decided to make me one for summer. I was hoping to get sort of a 'beetlejuice' effect with the black/white vertical stripes (I dont know if I accomplished that). I used big pics to show the stripes better. I made it following Lamby's fantastic tutorial and I'm very happy with the way it turned out.

The camera sort of skewed the stripes, they're very thin black and white stripes.

This one shows the stripes the best, and it shows the back with the zipper and where it ties with a bow.

This pic was just for fun Smiley
7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Hands/Heart tank top...and then some on: June 18, 2006 09:47:13 AM
I fell in love with this stencil I found on Stencilry so I decided to put it on a tank top:

And then here's a few I made for some swaps I was in:
This shirt I stencilled a Celtic knot onto it, I had a heck of time cutting it out, but I think it turned out nice:

And here's another one...the front is a little test tube with precipitates in it:

And the back says, "If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate":
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / 2 recons...shirt and sweater on: June 18, 2006 09:33:41 AM
Here's 2 things I reconstructed:

The original shirt was all white with a HUGE graphic on the front that was pink and sparkly and said "Baby Boo"...so not my style, but I liked the way it was made (a tank top with ruffles along the bottom sort of like a skirt and a shiny belt buckle thingy on the side). WHat  I did was cut out the whole front of the shirt, and cut some stripey material into the right shape and sewed that in. There was a bit of a hole left in one side, so I went over it and it turned out a little messy, hence the  black bow to hide it. I'm thinking it's missing something...maybe a stencilled pic on the front, but I'm not sure...any suggestions?

Then...from the thrift store I found a men's huge sweater...first I resized it to fit me, then I sewed on a piece of scrap fabric that I had stencilled guns onto, and then I added a zipper (because I dont have a sweater with a zipper and really wanted one)...I think I still might make it just a bit smaller to fit better.

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Checker-y Skirt!!! on: May 27, 2006 05:25:45 PM
I made this skirt for myself (i think it was last week) because my friend wanted to wear a dress to school the next day and said 'you wear one too' so I said 'Okay!' then I realized I didn't have one to wear, so I made this that evening...just your typical circle skirt with quite a wide waistband (i have to admit I was scared to try a circle skirt because I thought it would be too short) anyways I decided I wanted to be unique so I gave it a lace-up front so it would fit better. Now for the pics (sorry for the crappy picture quality):

The front (you can sort of see where it laces up in the front):

Back shot:

And the side:
I know I didnt line up the skirt and the waistband together too well, but it's my first try at a skirt.
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Pink and Black and White and Stripes! on: April 30, 2006 10:09:02 PM
I bought a black and white striped collared shirt from the thrift store...as much as I love stripes, the shirt was awfully unflattering and way too big on me, so after bringing it in to my size, I cut off the sleeves and added pink fleece sleeves as well as pockets and a waist-band (with a drawstring) from a hot pink fleece skirt from another thrift store (why would someone have a fleece skirt, really?), and this is what I came up with:

the camera made my eyes look all wonky because of the glare from my glasses so I made them look even more wonky just for the fun of it.


Edit: oops! I just realized that this probably should have gone under "reconstructed", sorry!
