1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Can someone tell me if my RECON idea will work? on: June 22, 2012 08:34:13 AM
I have very little sewing experience, but I love the idea of reconstructing clothes...I always have, but I get these ideas, and I'm just not sure if it will work, so I chicken out.

Here's what I'm wanting to try, I've seen several people have reconned tees to add a strip of fabric along the sides, but I want to cut a T-shirt up both sides and sew a wedge shape of fabric onto each side to make it an A-line (and to make it bigger around the stomach area).  Will this work?  I keep trying to imagine how it will look, and I have this horrible image that it will be awful, and I will have ruined 2 perfectly wearable shirts to try it.

Has someone tried this?  Can you share pics?  Tuts?
2  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Yarn....lots and lots of it on: June 22, 2011 05:13:34 AM
My MIL gave me a huge tub of yarn, and I'm tired of making scarves.  That's all I really know how to knit, and I'm not a fan of crocheting.  What are some other crafts I can make with yarn?  I've tried doing a search here, but it always leads me to the knitting or crocheting forums.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My first recon! NOW with PICS!!!! on: June 14, 2011 05:21:34 AM
Sorry for the crappy pics, they make me look even wider than I really am. Shocked

You can't tell in the pic, but this shirt had a belt that was sewn into it that reminded me of a bandeau top which inspired me to do this.

BEFORE:



AFTER (with a black t-shirt cut off at the armpits):


I wish I would have made it a little longer.
C&C's welcome.  I'm actually working on a couple of other projects with the rest of the shirt.  I'm making a shrug with the top and sewing the bottom ruffle onto the bottom of a turquoise tank.  I'll post those when I'm done, IF they turn out ok.  lol
