These are really pretty! My favorite is the Hollister one. The one with the sheep on it is is cute too. Smiley

Love the first one! It's so pretty - good use of the original design in the reconstruction!

Nice idea! I was thinking of doing something similar with an old blazer. I like what you did with the sleeves.

You could have added a strip of fabric on the INSIDE where you've already sewn.. it's what I would do.

Ah, yeah, but it would have meant adding a strip to the inner thigh area and I thought that would have looked funny... But.. argh... I could have used the fabric from the sleeves to match........  Undecided The only problem is that they're ankle-length pants rather than capris/gauchos, so I might have run out of sleeve material for the legs.

OH WELL!

Great tut and thanks for sharing!  Smiley

So, tonight I went ahead and took an old nightgown and tried the same technique to preserve the image on the front. Only.... when I sewed all of the seams up, I realized I'd made a HUGE error... I can't even get the pants on past my thighs, the waist is that tiny. >.<
Unless.. you have any ideas or tips for what I can do to increase the waist/hip size so I can actually get the pants on?
I know this is after the fact, but was the nightgown made from a stretch knit?  If not, maybe the fabric didn't have enough give to it?  Maybe try making the waistband from a different t-shirt that has some stretch to it.  Good luck.  Smiley

It's 100% cotton, but it's not really stretchy.. I've decided to just cut out the image, add strips along the legs, and replace the image with patches or pockets or something. Smiley

Ah! I've been looking for a tutorial like this for a long time! Thank you for posting this!

So, tonight I went ahead and took an old nightgown and tried the same technique to preserve the image on the front. Only.... when I sewed all of the seams up, I realized I'd made a HUGE error... I can't even get the pants on past my thighs, the waist is that tiny. >.<

With the old LiveJournal tutorial, I would have been able to add a 1-2 inch wide strip of fabric to the sides to help increase the waist/hip size... But with this technique, I really can't because the image is on the side.

Unless.. you have any ideas or tips for what I can do to increase the waist/hip size so I can actually get the pants on?

Nice! I have a lot of old sweaters with ugly embroidery on it. Covering it up it is a good idea.

This is adorable! I remember seeing the other tutorial, and this one is just as great, if not better Wink I love the color scheme and creative use of what could have been very tacky-looking sparkles/sequins! Inspiring for some shirts that have a similar look. Smiley

Wow, I love this!! Very creative way of using scraps. It even looks couture, to me!
