Da Skirt -

My initial idea did not come to completion with this skirt.  I tend to figure things out as I go and this disaster is an great example of this. I do believe an assortment of 4 different types of found jean material was use for this. Although it was great fun, I could have used more planning before cutting. C'est la vie!

The First Victim


Cut & Horror


Front & Back (after attaching panels)


I'm a short gal, so the A-line flare was giving me a very stout look. Decided to turn this baby into a pencil (skirt).


Before Hem


Da Shirt -

I hunted down an old men's undershirt and began haphazardly cutting away by first removing all hems.

Mutilation




Time to stencil, Woooo! I cut out my stencils from an Pabst box, then taped them directly to the shirt. I wasn't concerned with overspraying. I used Montana spray paint with several coats.


Ta-Da! The sleeves were sewn back on and a small black bow is added to collar. I chose not to weave the back stripping because the shirt was running slightly smaller than I expected.



Obligatory Action Shot!
