1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Some simple skirts on: April 06, 2011 07:49:34 AM
(Sorry about the first photo- but when I posted this originally the thumbnail was just a close up of my chest and I felt embarrassed, so here is a detail shot of the last picture in this thread- SORRY!)



I've recently gotten into high waist skirts- I've posted them a bunch on my blog. I've just taken existing skirts, hacking them off and putting elastic around the top. I'm sure there is a tutorial someone wrote somewhere. I like doing this because you can sometimes get two skirts or 1 skirt and 1 slip out of 1 item. So here are some of my favorites.


(skirt- I made, top- old navy)

My tees were made using a tutorial I posted on here a while ago but can't seem to find. ^_^  


And just because I love them, this tee I made inspired by My Chemical Romance's song "Na Na Na".

Edit: Thank you Coma! I get so confused on how to find stuff I've posted- here is the tee tute - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=349525.msg4073670#msg4073670
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Flyin' Skull Steampunk Necklace on: January 29, 2011 02:55:45 PM
Hi!

This is my first post on the jewelry boards- usually I stick to the reconned clothes board. I just wanted to show off this necklace I did- I made it for my second ever steampunk event to go with my outfit. You can see the full outfit at my blog: http://sewingpixie.blogspot.com



It's one of my favorite things I'd ever made, so I'm really proud of it. ^_^

Lol- another boring recon from me! This was a 2X that I took in on the sides, put the sleeves back in, and then I added another neckline because I hate crew neck shirts.



I found a ton of these type of animal tees at the local Salv Arm for like, two bucks each and I decided that (like Pokemon) I had to have them all. I'm trying to get more adventurous- I think next will be a scarf out of a yellow wolf tee. H&M had one and I never got to buy it before it sold out.

EDIT: I did not make the cardigan- Old Navy did. ^_~
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Not much- just some sprucing up! on: November 30, 2010 03:29:34 PM
It's been a long time since I've posted on here!

I haven't been up to much that is super exciting, but I've discovered a lot of applique and have been using that to just give minor face-lifts to my old clothing.



Thanks to the lovely headless Lola for modeling. The dress was thrifted from a rummage sale and I appliqued on little patches by the neck.



Same rummage sale, different dress!





I also stenciled the little zombie girl, which is an original sketch of mine. ^_^ So like I said, nothing too exciting but something cute. I wear these to work all the time because they are so comfy.

I'm really in love with peasant style shirts because they have a nice scoop neck and they are flowy, which makes me feel good because I hate tight things. Because of my hate for tight things, I have a ton of L and XL tees just hanging around my apartment. When I saw a peasant blouse-type tee on Old Navy, I knew I had to figure out how to make one. I'm posting the tutorial, even though I might try and sell some in this style on my etsy, because once I made them I couldn't STOP making them. I LOVE this tute and I hope you guys like it too- it's kind of an instant gratification type thing because it only takes a few moments. Also, I've done a men's dress shirt with this tutorial as well and it is almost appropriate for the Renn Faire, which is good cause I have no money for a costume!








I also wanted to share this with you- for all the Twilight fans out there. My friends and I have been coming up with other vampire movies vs Twilight slogans and I made my favorite into a Tee. It's a Lost Boys Reference and a take on those tourist tees. So it's the outline of Washington State and the slogan is "WASHINGTON: MORE VAMPIRES THAN SANTA CARLA". Other favorites include "Team Barnabas" (from Dark Shadows), "Buffy vs Bella", and "Cullens? No, you mean Collins" (again, Dark Shadows).

6  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Blowfish recon- Best Boots Evah! on: January 30, 2010 05:41:23 PM
This is my favorite project I've ever done-mostly because I've never redone shoes. I love them, I've worn them every day, I'm so excited. I hope you like them, too.

I got a pair of Blowfish Miami's Humvee boots and they were too tight on the calves. I thought maybe since they were wool they would stretch out, but they didn't. So I split the back seam, inserted a panel of blue and purple plaid wool, and some ties. Now they are adjustable to go over jeans or wear with tights! Also, to be decorative, I salvaged a lace applique from an old lady top and stitched it to the sides. Now it looks embroidered! I LOVE THESE!!!!




7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Vest- but cool. on: November 05, 2009 09:47:51 AM
I went to the PA Ren Faire two weekends ago with my friend and we had a BLAST. I wanted to post pics of the outfit I made, but this is the only one I have. The blouse my mom made and I made the vest from gray twill and felt circles and Tshirt strips, and the skirts were both recycled/reconned. The green top skirt was bought from  me that day. The vest is my favorite part- I did the pattern for it, I embroidered the circles on. It has these ties on the side. It's not boned- it was supposed to be for Fairy Con last year where pretty much anything goes. But I liked it so much I wanted to wear it twice.



Oh and I made the horns and did the makeup too! The only thing I didn't do was the cape!
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Button Dress! on: October 29, 2009 07:47:18 AM
I took this plain, green checked dress that looked like a substitute teacher dress, tucked up the skirt with a bunch of buttons, and appliqued old heart fabric I had in the scrap bin onto the front. I don't have any before pictures, but here are the afters. I love it so!

I wore a skirt version of this to the PA Renn Faire this past weekend and had someone buy it off of my body. It was totally cool- that has never happened to me before.





9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Sweaters! on: February 16, 2009 02:11:42 PM
I really love to remake sweaters. They are my favorite thing to sew.



10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / A Sweater and A Button up on: February 16, 2009 02:05:35 PM
I'm boring. I've been really busy with school and stuff lately, but I'm really trying to update my clothes. Here are two things I made for me:



This is Maude. She is my absolute favorite sweater. Very low neck in the front, because I like to wear graphic tees and I like to show them off but still be warm.



This I made from a shirt of my boyfriend's. I made it smaller to fit me, but then I accidentally made it too small so I put pink plaid panels in the front and back.

Love-
Naked Doll
