1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Class to Trash II...the shirt (photo obese) on: February 12, 2006 09:52:11 PM
Well, my last post was the skirt with chains and lace. The skirt loved it's new life in the trash lane (the good kind of trash!), but it begged for company.
I took a trip to the local thriftstore, and I picked up this creepy sex suit (i don't know what you call it, bodice?), and cut off the panties part that buttons up coz...ew. and then, i sewed some of the lace from the bottom to the chest area to make it less see-thru. I also took this ruffly top i've had for the longest time, and I cut open the front. I then sewed it to clean it up and added eyelets out of some black material. The final result is a sort of reverse corset that LOVES my skirt.

Here's the visual explanation (i took off the before pics coz y'all use up my data transfer limit):

the end result.

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / *first post second try...:)* Class to trash, and proud of it. on: February 03, 2006 03:59:05 AM
well i guess this is actually my second post since my *&^%$#@! mac conked out and now i have to do it again. sorry for the semi-flood here, folks.

anyway, i found this skirt at a sally anne a while back and got more than my $5 worth wearing it in offices. however, there was always something off about this skirt. something about it just screamed "i am a slutty mini born in a business class pattern. help me". i couldn't disappoint the skirt, so after much needle pokes and unladylike words muttered...

not the original skirt, but a very close approximation in drabness and lack of fun. (i don't have a pic of the skirt pre-op coz my previous recons have been hideously disfigured and i didn't expect this one to work out).



"i may provoke a nasty look shot in your direction from time to time when you wear me, but...oh, you know you like it." now that's a skirt with attitude. and...it talks... Undecided



anyway. hello, craftster.    Wink
