1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Sawed this shirt... on: October 21, 2006 11:29:01 PM
Alright, I'll stop lurking.  This forum is such an inspiration, and I admire the work that everyone posts here.  Too cool.

So this is my first successful reconstruction.  Go me.  
Anyways, I was pretty wired one night, and was musing about Halloween costumes.  I decided to dress up as a Gothic Lolita/Aristocrat (still deciding).  So I hacked up a huge black t-shirt I got from Comic Con to make a 3 tiered skirt.  Not a big fan of Saw- I haven't seen any of the movies.  It's just when you're at a convention, you can't help but look for free stuff.

Here's the shirt:

And here's the skirt:

Here's me standing in front of my grimy bathroom mirror modeling the skirt.

And the tutorial I used:

I haven't decided if I'm going to gather the sides.  And I'm planning to put some lace on the middle tier after I make a run to my local Michaels/Value Craft/JoAnn's.

It's not professional at all (there are so many mistakes), but at least it's decent.

Operation T-shirt to skirt = Success.  Now I have to go about making a petticoat so the skirt will go poof!  And I'm turning to the tutorials here.  Go Craftster.

Thanks for viewing!
