1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Three t-shirt reconstructions! Space Invaders, Mario&Yoshi, and Batman! on: June 23, 2010 08:50:59 PM
I haven't posted a new topic in ages!

I reconstructed a few shirts this summer among other things. It seems like just as school ends, you want it to start back up! But I'm filling my time with sewing! <3

This is a Mario and Yoshi shirt I reconstructed.  Cheesy

Next up is the Batman shirt! I've been meaning to make this for ages! I'm glad I finally got the chance!

Finally the Space Invaders dress! I think this one is my favorite out of the bunch. I love the colors.  Smiley

Thanks for looking!  Cheesy
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Mod 60s Cowl Neck Long Sleeve Polka Dot Autumn Dress! WOOSH! on: November 01, 2008 12:00:08 PM
I made this dress from scratch using REALLY soft knit polka dot fabric. I also used mustard yellow knit for the waistband and sleeves. The neck is cowl, as you can see in the last picture (with me hiding my face with it). I made puffy long sleeves and a high waist. I made the headband really quick before school...it's a bit crap, but it looked okay. I hope you like my dress though!

Some of the pictures I just put because they're a bit artsy and I liked them. hehe
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Batman // Dark Knight Dress on: July 22, 2008 01:26:07 AM
Helloooo! So...I, like many other huge Batman fans, went to see The Dark Knight on Friday, BUT since I'm such a huge Batman fan, I decided to make a dress  Cheesy

--Ignore my face...hehe--


I made this dress out of cotton Batman fabric, with a back zipper. The front panel is made from black vinyl and the strap is just black lycra...I'm wearing a top underneath in these photos. The belt is just from a kid's costume that I wore for Halloween  Tongue

Comments appreciated! I hope you all like it!  Smiley

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Jack Skellington-esque Skinny Pants on: June 25, 2008 07:53:39 PM

These are the most awesome skinny pants ever. They're just like Jack Skellingtons! I made them out of black and white pinstripe lycra, with a black lycra waistband.

I hope you like them!
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Gir Shrug and Social Distortion Capris on: June 25, 2008 07:50:42 PM

This top is PERFECT for summer. I reconstructed a GIR shirt into this cute shrug. I made puff sleeves out of green jersey and used black lycra for the trim. The front is white with Gir print, and the back is all green jersey.


I made these capris using an XXXL Social Distortion tee. I added a red jersey waistband.

Thanks for looking!  Cheesy
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Two Dresses Reconstructed from ComFest and Nintendo Shirts =) on: March 04, 2008 03:55:46 PM
I haven't sewn for ages (about 5-7 years) but I recently decided to start up again. I started on Saturday making a dress, and I made another one on Sunday. I think they turned out really good, though the craftsmanship is loads better on the second one (the first was more of a practice dress than anything). For the first one I used a yellow ComFest shirt (it's like a hippie festival thingy...in Columbus...but I didn't go there myself, a few of my siblings did) and I also used some purplish fabric I found in my attic, and two cute yellow buttons.



I messed up a bit on the top part (too tight) and a bit on the skirt (too loose) =P

The next dress I made out of a red Nintendo shirt I found at Goodwill, some zebra fabric, red lace, and two red buttons. After I had made the dress my boyfriend got upset because we couldn't match anymore (he has the same red Nintendo shirt), but I consoled him a bit, saying we could still match only I'd be a bit more girly. I should convince him to buy zebra "cigarette" pants =P . Well, enough jibba jabba, here be muh dress yo.


oooo, Converse =P


YAY! I hope you like them =) . Oh, and be gentle, I've never reconstructed shirts/made a dress before.
