772  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Beatles criss-crossed top on: March 24, 2010 03:48:25 PM
Just a tshirt recon I did.. took a beatles top that had pretty silver lettering, cut off the back and added a new one out of this gorgeous grey material with black and silver designs on it!

Front.. looks normal

773  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Easiest skirt ever made on: March 24, 2010 03:44:03 PM
Hey! So I had this crazy pink and blue striped material, and decided to use some to make this skirt.. too easy! haha. I didnt hem it (top or bottom) its stretchy enough I didnt have to add an elastic or zipper.. all I did was sew one stitch.. thats right! ONE down the back, and pulled the extra material over, pinned it on each hip and added a little bow made out of matching blue fishnet and a glittery star button.

The stripes probably make my butt look HUGE but I dont care, haha. I love it. Super comfy but really think so gotta get something to wear underneath.. thus the silly pink tights in the pictures.

Please let me know what you think Smiley

Pixieval! Theyre super easy. Just measure the length you want them to be (adding extra for the point to cross over) sew the edge, and throw some snaps on. Takes no time at all =)

Thanks for the feedback!

I love making these!  I used a skinny end for a watchband once if you have the kind of watch that slides on a changeable band (although the band is getting worn and the watch has run out of batteries).  Those button snaps look smart.  Where did you find them?

The snaps I just got a fabricville (its called fabricland most places but we use the french name here) bought them in a pack of 6. I dont know if its only a Canadian company or not though.. liking the watch idea too, will have to give that a try!

Hey guys! A SUPER quick project that I know Im going to love showing off.

I recycled an old tie I had into a set of wristcuffs.. I dont know if anyone else put up something like this before or not (not that it matters though Tongue) but I think theyre quite groovy and Im going to wear them to death.

Let me know what you think!
Thanks for looking Smiley
778  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Patchwork/Gibbous inspired top hat? pic heavy on: March 23, 2010 03:49:54 PM
So I have this obsession with tophats.. and I always wanted to make one. And then I discovered (through people mentioning it here) Gibbous, and wanted to make something kind of like that too.. so I ended up with a very strange tophat that I just adore!!! I used black denim and a red and black plaid material, and interfacing inside the brim and for the top part of the hat.
You can also see when I have the hat turned upside down to show the side of the brim, that I have a ring inside where I was going to put boning to keep the shape (but it ended up being not needed) and also you can see that I get lazy sometimes and dont change the thread in my serger to match what Im making.. haha.. oops!

Anyway, please let me know what you think  Cheesy

Would have gotten better action shots but its hard to take a picture of yourself wearing a hat..

some of the patchwork and the brim

one of my favorite parts

check it out, olive green thread.. haha. but you cant see it when you wear it and thats the important part!
