1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Modified Mickey Mouse Sweatshirt on: September 22, 2012 06:56:35 PM

I found this little treasure in the little boy's section of my local thrift shop.  It fit pretty snugly, but I felt like I was choking from the tiny neck opening so I chopped it off so it hangs off the shoulders.  There's two rows of topstitching just around the neckline, a detachable bow brooch which I crafted out of some leftover fabric I had used for my pillowcases here and padded it with the fabric from the hoodie I chopped off.  I also added a few studs to the bottom right along the seam, just because I felt like it.

This was a really quick and easy project, and what's great is that the fabric doesn't fray so it can be left unfinished/raw.

What a beautiful dress! It's very whimsical and fairy-like Smiley

Thanks Smiley I just cut a straight line across the leg for the shorts, then cut off the seams and cuff from the legs. This left me with 2 rectangles which fit perfectly around my belly, and the other 2 pieces I shaped into 2 long trapezoid-like shapes for the bust. I made a quick sketch of what I did.. hope that helps!

Hi everyone! I've got another refashion up for you! This used to be a pair of capri pants that I found. But lately it has been way too hot for this kind of clothing, so I decided to cut them into shorts, and I turned the leftover fabric into a halter top. Now I can stay a little cooler while lounging around the house Smiley

Before picture and other refashions can be found on my blog!

Nope, I pretty much just guestimated using my measurements.  It's stretchy, so I figured the measurements don't need to be exact anyway Smiley

I finally finished my yellow floral dress this afternoon Smiley The waist is elasticized as well as the shoulder which is designed to sit off the shoulders.  I paired it with a belt I picked up from the thrift store and the denim purse I finished yesterday.
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Has anyone come across a pattern or made a dress like this before? on: August 01, 2011 05:07:45 PM
I've made a couple of dresses similar to the top on the right.  Very simple construction and you can pretty much whip one up in a couple of hours without the use of a pattern. Smiley
