21  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Wedding Cake Dress on: August 14, 2010 04:12:55 PM
I made this dress out of a vintage slip I got at a thrift store. The top is stretchy lace with shoulder pads. It's kinda weird because the shoulder pads aren't sheer but the rest is, but I think it looks cool. I kept the original skirt and added seventeen layers of ruffles... was more lace than I dreamed it would take haha.

I think this is really cool! I like the shape of it too.

I have that exact blender!! It's older than me! lol

I love you for doing this, by the way. Cheesy

Thanks!! It's way older than me, for sure. My mom has a similar one that has to be 35+ years old.
24  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / How to make a romper from pants on: July 26, 2010 03:52:37 PM
I had a lot of fun making this romper out of some ridiculous pants I found at my thrift store. The pants are a kelly green knit and they are vintage Express. They are pleated in the front and have side pockets, and had a really pronounced taper at the ankle. They are elasticized at the back.

So I made the top part out of jersey, it's just a really basic double scoop. I sewed on the shorts just like you'd sew a skirt to the waist of a dress and I hemmed the pants into shorts. That was it! The jersey is stretchy and the pants have elastic so it just slips on! It's pretty comfy. You just have to make sure the torso of the top is long enough so the shorts don't ride up haha.





Thanks!

LOL that's great.  Was your dad able to wire it so one of the blender buttons turns the light off and on?

Ahh I wish. I suggested it and he looked at me like he wanted to cry... it was kind of a tough project. It turns on with a silver toggle switch on the side, you can see it in the pictures.
26  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Have you turned that beautiful, avocado-green, vintage blender into a lamp yet? on: July 20, 2010 05:10:51 PM
YES.

My inspiration, of course, being the subheading of the Home Sweet Home Reconstructed board. I've been wanting to do this for years. We gutted the bottom part and took out the motor and all the electric stuff is hidden inside. My dad did all the wiring, I pretty much just did the idea part haha.

I love these! Very fun find for sure Smiley I love them as necklaces & I think they'd make a cute charm bracelet too

Ooh good idea, thanks!

I got these fabulous vintage drink markers at the thrift store today, and, as I always do, immediately went to town on them. I think they're 40s/50s era. I have about 30 of them and I can't wait to make them all into necklaces. I figured they'd be perfect for bachelorette parties or for bridesmaids. I will save one for myself for when my 21st birthday rolls around (eight months to go until my first legal... bourbon and soda? Maybe something more modern.)

Anyway, pictures!






I figured at the very least if you wear one of these to a bar you'd be in for some free drinks, even if they are outdated ones. "Oh hey sugar, can I buy you a rye and water?"

It's very cute and I love the olive color! You definitely have more patience than me to do all those pleats.

How did  you attach them Just love them they are so cute and very pretty. Great job.

Thanks! I just sewed right through the elastic of the original skirt, it was pretty easy. You just have to sort of stretch it a bit as you go.
