11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Lace Covered Sunglasses on: May 28, 2012 05:50:32 AM
You can see with them on but not well enough to do any sort of activity.

You will need the following:

- Lace
- Hot glue gun
- Scissors
- Sunglasses

I carefully applied the hot glue the outside of the lens, keeping close to frame.  I pressed a square piece of the lace into the hot glue and let it dry.  I trimmed away the lace as closely to the frame as I could.  With the edge of my thumbnail, I pressed the rough edges of the lace into the crease between the sunglass frame and the lens.  Repeat with the second lens and you have some really nifty sunglasses!

13  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Refashioned Red Dress on: May 24, 2012 03:51:59 AM
This was one of my crazy cheap purchases from the school yard sale back in April.  I removed the shoulder pads, sleeves, and fake breast pockets.  I hemmed the sleeves and sewed closed the holes in the chest.  After some thought, I decided to remove the collar.  Next, I removed the buttons from the front of the dress and sewed it closed.  Because I did such a poor job on the front of the dress, I decided to turn it around.  This looked much better.  The only problem was that the neckline was too tight. I fixed this by seam-ripping about an inch down the shoulder seam.  To streamline the neck, I folded the ends of the shoulder seams into the dress and sewed them down.  After hemming the neckline, I removed material from the bottom of the dress until it hit above my knees.  I hemmed the bottom of the dress and lastly needed to do something about the back (previously the front) of the dress.  I took a piece of lace and gathered it until it was short enough to run from my neckline to waste-line.  I sewed it to the dress and it just barely covered up the hatchet job I called sewing.

14  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Refashioned Pearl Snap Top on: May 21, 2012 05:36:54 AM
So my pearl snap top was in need of updating and lately, lace has been my best friend.  I took some scrap lace and pinned it to the shirt across the back.  I sewed the lace down following the seam around the shoulders and arms.  I then cut the lace as closely to the seam as possible.  Using the zig-zag stitch, I sewed over the rough edges of the lace, simultaneously reinforcing the lace and preventing fraying.  I was so thrilled with the back of the shirt, I had to add lace to the breast pockets and shoulders.

Thank you! 
16  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Refashioned Nightgown on: May 06, 2012 02:52:30 PM
This was my very first refashion.  I bought this nightgown at a yard sale for $2.  I removed the buttons, the sleeves, and several feet of material from the bottom.  I'm pretty sure I also folded the lapels down to form a V in the chest.  The last thing I did was pleat the back.  I removed the pockets and I am kicking myself now because I love pockets.  I think I did this though because the dress was sheer. I love this refashion as a coverup!

Thanks!  I was just wondering that myself.  I think it is sitting in my scrap pile but I am not sure.  A while back, I gave a friend's kids a lot of my scraps to play sew with so it might be with them.

I bought this dress at a yard sale for, you guessed it!  a dollar!  This dress was made for a very tiny woman, not me!  As you can see, it is very snug in the chest and very, very snug in the hips.   I figured this dress would make a cute tunic so I cut the material so that the bottom of the tunic nearly meets the bottom of my bottom.  It still fit really snug at my hips so I seam-ripped up the side seams about four inches and hemmed all of the rough edges.   Voila!  Super easy top!

Well thank you!  To be honest, the plastic was pretty awesome.  I'm still working on some other items from the same plastic so I hope the rest of my items live up to your praise!

Thanks!  It makes me want to rethink my floral bracelet.
