So I've been wanting a shirt to wear with this black tie w/ white pinstripes that I have (used to be my mum's) but I didn't have any that were cool enough to match it.  I was digging through my brothers' old clothes, once again, and found this white pinstripe shirt that had a weird fit to it.  It's been sitting in my room, waiting to be fixed but I didn't have a sewing machine until about 3 days ago!

so, I added a bit of shaping and made the fit better, shortened the sleeves, and now it is wearable.

shaping (please tell me that that is in fact, what it is called.):

without the tie:

Oh, and I added a felt heart on the pocket.  (btw, the pocket is on my left boob.)

this was my first ever sewing-machine project (minus the apron i made back in grade 8 in home ec.)

thanks for looking!

that is such a cute dress.

AH, I can't even stand looking at what it was before!  I'm so glad you made it better.

So, I've been wanting some checkered shorts for summer, and I see those reconstruct tees-to-pants here on crafster.  I've already made some out of a grey t-shirt that are sorta like sweats.  I finish the shorts (all hand-sewn; I don't have a machine) and mind you, I thought they were pretty cute.  I've worn the shorts a few times and last night I wanted to wear them to this event that I'm helping out with, so I do.

I'm standing there, listening to my friend explain what I'm going to be doing (and this is outside with lotsa people (the richmond night market) ) and I kinda feel like there's a draft around my er..bottom area.  Anyway, we go up the stairs to the stage (I guess I went up 2 at a time or something) and I really had to go to the bathroom so I excused myself and went.  When I got in a stall I looked at my pants and found a rip about an inch long along the butt-seam. Lips sealed Shocked Let's just say I was extremely grateful I had safety pins (my saviours) on me and that I'm never wearing those pants again. Embarrassed
