1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Daft Punk/Vintage Swimmer on: September 30, 2012 04:06:54 PM
Hey all--

Long time lurker finally getting around to posting.

For Halloween, my friends and I are planning to go as characters from the Daft Punk "Around the World" music video:

I plan on being the swimmer, but I can't find an appropriate pattern to use. I've seen a lot of vintage patterns, but they are mostly halter tops. Also, the back is zippered.

Any suggestions/tutorials/patterns/advice you have for me would be awesome!
Thanks!

Thank you!

The shirt does need to be a little loose, otherwise it will get too tight. I just did two rows, but the more you do, the tighter the shirt will get. It really all depends on how fitted you want the end result to be.

Hey everyone...

This is my first post here...just a simple t-shirt recon inspired by Violentjayne. I just took a t-shirt, cut a hole in the back, and shirred around it twice. (I was just trying to practice shirring).

It's super simple, but I'm very happy with it! What do you guys think?

Normal t-shirt (it's black, even though my dumb camera makes it look blue):


But wait, look at the back!

Oops, I should have read the post...I see the tutorial now. I was just so blown away by the awesomeness of that skirt. Wink

I like it! What do you mean by straightened the crotch, though?

Wow, I love the purple and black together. What kind of fabric is the skirt part?

Nice! My boyfriend has a ton of shirts just waiting to be reconstructed into something cute and feminine. I love this one. Smiley

I love the origami skirt. Was it difficult to make?
