1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / skirts into dresses [img chunky] on: January 01, 2010 02:23:35 PM
EDIT: I just realized I put this in tha wrong section, but idk how to move it><


My mom gave me these huge polyester skirts that her mom had in the sixties. I had no idea what to do with them until this morning when I just ripped one seam out, turned it diagonal-like and sewed it. It turned them into these Shocked :
The black one:






The purple one:




IDK where I'm gonna where them though!!! Lips sealed Huh

Tell me whatcha think!!! Roll Eyes
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Shrug(and tutu) on: January 01, 2010 01:17:26 AM
So I have this top I made from a huge t-shirt. Problem is: A, the straps make it against dress code at my school. and B, I had some fabric left over from the shirt. So I made this matching shrug today, in the photos I'm wearing the top it goes with. I'm pretty sure anyone else would have done this a billion times easier(and better), but it took me forever, and I got so frustrated, but I got it done, and I like it.

What do you think?


I made the tutu this morning, cuz I was bored:)


The front


The back

I decided for my senior prom, i wanted to make my own dress. ive chosen simplicity 3878, but im going to make it knee length. if anyone is familiar with this pattern, i was wondering what kind of fabrics to use? idk what colours i want yet, but I figure when we go, something'll pop out at me. but idk what kinds of fabric to be looking for!!

AND.....

i saw these plushies on hottopic.com and i wanted one ,but im low on funds, so i went to the scrap fabric pile instead. its kinda crappy i think. the wings didnt turn out right and the legs are two different lengths =S but i like him nonetheless

6  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / doggie batman shirt on: August 06, 2009 08:27:00 PM
i made this for my dog because i LOVE to sew (even tho im new at it)
the batman logo was inspired by this post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=296248.0
( i must give credit where credit is due =P)

i had to make the pattern for the shirt from scratch so it fits him (almost) perfectly
so heres what i did:

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / convertible top from huge t shirt on: August 06, 2009 04:04:22 PM
this is my first post, so if i mess up, please understand if its not up to par  Smiley
so me friend left this t shirt at my house last summer, so ive had it for a while and its become mine, so i took it, cut it up, and reconstructed it into this top that can be worn 4 different ways because of buttons on the back and buttonholes on the straps

it can be worn as a:
tube top- http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3459/3796680304_c2dd3fd270_m.jpg
halter top- http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2664/3796670154_ed4ff6f216_m.jpg
X back tank top- http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3479/3795857169_ddf12e1d31_m.jpg
regular tank top- http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2437/3796674030_a319bb2839_m.jpg

its not really that advanced, as i am a new sewer (XD sew-er, not sewer) but by reconstructing, im learning how to fit stuff custom for me, and gaining sewing machine skills.

what do you think?
