3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Volumptuous Horses & Cable Lines.. in a geometric love dance. on: August 16, 2010 10:36:09 PM

heres a shirt i made the other day for a girlfriend Smiley
she basically handed me these shirts and said... just do what you do..
so i did..

plain gray shirt + AA funny graphic tee


she did say she wanted the horses in a L shape and some on the back, so i did that.
then i cut out the other horses and just placed them wherever i thought looked fun. (one of them is upside down Tongue)
i also cut slits across the neck of the shirt and one of the sleeves.. it needed more skin Wink

i also took some black fabric i had lying around and cut them into long strips and sewed the strips on to make a nice graffic pattern.
a lot of what i've sewn this summer has been very geometric and i guess that still stands Tongue it was hard for me to stick with the t-shirt form. i was soo tempted to do a tank/ 1shoulder but i dont have a modelllllllllllll.

I dont know.. at first i didnt really like it, but the more i look at it, the more im okay with it.... what do you guys think?

BTW, how did you make the bow?

After you've pieced together the skirt, the bow should be one of the last things you do (besides waistband)
Hope this helps:  Smiley

I love this!  So many of the pants-to-skirt recons just turn the crotch sideways and make it obvious it used to be pants.  This is just an adorable design that looks like it was meant to be a skirt.  I love the pocket and bow.  I wish I had a serger.  The exposed seams are just adorable.  Great job! 

Thank you! Kiss
I got lucky, the serger was a graduation present from my parents. If you ever see a serger sale, definitely pick one up they're amazing!! But I imagine you can still get a similar effect with the zig zag stitch on a normal sewing machine. Smiley

...maybe with a stretch cotton though- zippers aren't too friendly with me Wink

Last summer I made a camo skirt from my sister's pants. (seen here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=308873.0)
THIS summer; my sister doesn't have any camo pants for me to rip up so I went to Value Village and bought one for $2.99 !! Smiley

I made them pretty similar, but this time, the front pocket is actually functional  Smiley

BEFORE:   (pic taken halfway through cutting, lol. I got too excited Wink)


I basically took the pants apart at the seams, then cut out the pockets I wanted to use.
Then cut the pants into strips vertically, and from then, selectively cutting squares and serging them back together. Then I took some black stretch cotton, sewed a tube, folded it in half and pined, sewed it across the top. I kept the bottom hem of the pants intact so that I could use them for the bottom of the skirt. Smiley

Please give me your thoughts and any criticism Smiley

The skirt is really well done and cute! Cheesy But that shirt is absolutely gorgeous, I love the choice of fabrics and I would definitely want a bow like that on my clothes.

Cheesy Thank you!! I looooooooooooo0o0ooove bows and I like to add them in whenever I can ahaha. This is my favourite colour palette so far- blue and brown and beige  Cheesy Cheesy

For some reason, I have random sewing sprees.
and then make nothing for months at a time. =_=!!

This was made mostly from scratch, but the beige meshy fabric is straight off a shirt i never wore (it was too tight on the arms, so i chopped 'em off)  Grin I still have the body of the shirt, but that's a whole nother project.  Wink
Then I made a simple tube top out of the brown fabric and blue hounds tooth i am INLOVE WITH.
Then I put 'em together.
Took some lace. Tied a bow. Sewed that baby down.

..I actually made the skirt as well, but from scratch..
But if anyone cares, I made a tube for the waist-part and a strip of fabric about 1.5 x the length of your waistband part. Pin, sew.  Smiley

I love this shirt- it's gotta be one of my fav things I've ever made. It's sailor-ish but school girl.. but with a tad of lolita...  Roll Eyes

i finally received my package from pumkpinbear!!!

In the box was a drawing from her little ones, a cool dino button, and 2 notebooks with blank pages with dino tracings on the cover! She also included the softest dino quilt ever! theres a lot of dino fabric used, and i think she even upcycled some old t-shirts in there! i can tell it took a lot of time, theres a lot of little rectangular pieces:)
Thanks so much pumpkinbear!! the blank notebooks are perfect as pocket sketchbooks Smiley
