11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Button belt on: December 04, 2008 03:53:35 PM
Hey! So I actually made this a few years ago, but I still wear it. The front buckle was vintage and it broke. =^C But it is still functional, I just didn't include it on the shots.

12  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Huge sweater transformed into a sweater dress (img heavy) on: December 04, 2008 02:13:05 PM
So at the thrift store the other day I saw this huge sweater for $1. I really like the colors and the way it opened...well it just really got my creative juices flowing...so today I made this:

It's one of those "too long to be a shirt but too short to be a dress" tops that you wear with leggings.

AND I made these uber cute leg warmers:

AND I made a bikini top as an after thought!

It all came from this very frumpy sweater:

I resized it using a very fitted T-shirt and baste stitching around it:

Once I tried it on and figured out how I wanted the sleeves and such I sewed the outline twice to prevent freying using a very small stitch on my machine.

I realized as soon as I cut off the sleeves that they would make great leg warmers, and the bikini top was made from the scraps of the leg warmers!

I think this is very cute with leggings but it is also cute with just jeans. What do you think?
13  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / The Professional: Matilda and Leon on: November 01, 2008 07:29:23 PM
So me and my boo were Matilda and Leon this year. Now, I must admit, the amount of crafting in this is minimal. I made the choker and reconstructed the shorts from a pair of pants for my half of the costume...not very hard. For his half I reconstructed his hat from a thrift store hat, and I made the Styrofoam guns from somewhat gun shaped pieces of Styrofoam I found in the woods. Yes I am serious; I found gun shaped Styrofoam in the woods. Creepy.
Also I cut my own hair, and that is kinda like crafting I guess.

I also want to note that he does have suspenders on.

14  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Leopard stretch denim pencil skirt and unicorn shirt. on: October 14, 2008 06:41:01 AM
Yes, everyones favorite leopard stretch denim from  Jo-anne fabrics is now a pencil skirt for me. I am so proud of this, it has darts and a zipper and everything! I made it kinda long on purpose because I am very, very tall. I have also paired it with a shiny Las Vegas unicorn shirt that i made from a 2xl t-shirt. enjoy!

I also love recycling and board games as you can see from this photo.

heres a dart

here's that fabulous unicorn shirt. It doesn't make any sense, why are their unicorns in Las Vegas? Sorry for the blurriness.

And here is the back! I swear my room is not that messy, just that little corner. the rest of it is pretty clean.

15  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Tips for oil cloth? on: May 27, 2008 06:48:41 PM
I just got the CUTEST oil cloth ever and want to make a pleated tote bag. I have never sewn with this material before and barely have any to spare...any tips before i begin? Thanks!
16  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Matching bikini and circle skirt on: May 24, 2008 01:22:28 PM
Yay! my first post!

A few notes: I am a super lazy sewer. Also, I am like 30 pounds heavier than i would like to be. Lastly, I haven't sewn in about two years. OK here we go

Excuse my facial expression, I don't know whats going on there. The top is from the "Generation T" book. I made it from the sleeves of an old baseball T and the scraps from the skirt as the string. A warning; the pattern in Generation T is definitely for A cups...I am a C. Thankfully i measured the cups to my boobs before sewing.

The skirt was made from some jersey knit I have had forever, and usually wear by just securing it with a safety pin. But I decided to make it an actual skirt, drawstring style.

Twirly action shot!

You cant really see it, but this outfit matches two star tattoos i have on my hip!
