41  Ahhh, the things we'll do for fabric. . . in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by SaccharineSunshine04 on: March 18, 2006 03:29:51 PM
So, I was searching my mother's give away pile and I saw these nice pinstriped pants. You can't give away nice pinstriped pants, so I snuck them into my room. They didn't quite fit right. Recon time!!!

From frumpy high-waisted pants to. . .

Gorgeous skirty glory!!! You can't really see the pinstripes, but they're silvery on black.

42  It's hard out here for a. . .er. . . dressmaker! in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by SaccharineSunshine04 on: March 15, 2006 10:13:11 AM
I started making a dress from the lining of an old dress. . .

The old dress and

The lining. It's such a pretty pink and I didn't want it hidden under all that black so I cut it out. But then I had a crafty moment after I finished the skirt. I have three different skirt options and I need help deciding. . .

Option 1 is my original option. But the tulle doesn't really show enough and it's not a poofy as I wanted so,

Option 2 is to let the tulle peek out in the front. I like this one the best, but if I do this one, I'll need black fabric for the underskirt. And finally,

Option 3 is to let the tulle be on the outside. This one's pretty, the dress is poofy enough, and the pink shows through fabulously, but I don't know if it really looks "right".
Comments are appreciated and sorry about the blurry pictures (I was taking them while standing on a chair.)!

43  Fairy Tale Purse (lots of pics!) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by SaccharineSunshine04 on: March 05, 2006 03:54:17 PM
Once upon a time a princess decided she needed a pretty purple purse. All the other purses were boring black or not special enough, so she made her own. . .

I photoshopped this one. Does it look like colored pencil?

Front

Back

I put pearls in the center of fake flowers and lace around the bottom.

I don't know what this is, but I call it a pearl pouf!

There's a string of pearls hanging off the left side.
And she lived happily ever after with a purse she'll never carry. The End.

44  What I was born to do. . . in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by SaccharineSunshine04 on: March 05, 2006 03:42:54 PM
Which is run around my room pretending to be Mimi from Rent!
In the "La Vie Boheme" scene Mimi has this awesome blue shrug which I wanted so I cut up my sister's shirt (It was a pajama top, which explains the comfiness. We were cleaning out her dresser and this fell out. It fit but it was too short for either of us.)

I turned this comfy blue shirt into Mimi's shrug!

I know. . .mine's lighter and not as big. . .but still, it's mine!

Me modeling it. Excuse my messy room. I don't believe in cleaning.
*sighs* Now if only I could get her cool tights. Cheesy

45  Star Wars + Tulle + Pleats + Me = Another (Awesome) T-shirt Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by SaccharineSunshine04 on: February 28, 2006 07:17:44 PM
Yes, another one. But this one is for Brittany. I hope the measurements are right. . .

Star Wars T-shirt Dress!!!

I messed up the bottom pleats (not enough fabric) and decided not to sew it together but leave it and add a bow! And there's tulle layered underneath the pleats.

Close up of sleeve. I made it corset-like!

Me modeling it in my mirror. Brittany will lahv it!
What do you think?

46  Luxury Items kinda bite. Let's DIY! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by SaccharineSunshine04 on: February 19, 2006 04:55:05 PM
How often are do you browse through magazines and websites and see something totally gorgeous but it costs waaaayyyy more money than you're willing to spend?
I took this Rent test (which comes out on DVD Tuesday!) on Alloy.com to see which Rent character I am (Mark, btw.) but with the test Alloy gives you a list of accessories that match your character or whatever. I saw this velvet paisley hobo and fell in love with it. But it costs $26, $17.99 on sale. Puh-lease, I'm a DIY girl. . .

The original bag and my version!

I just have to figure out how to do the ruching and I'm set.

47  Innovators and Moochers. My first post. . . in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by SaccharineSunshine04 on: February 17, 2006 08:04:42 PM
Myself being the innovator, Elphie-Bay being the moocher.
I made this T-shirt dress from 2 old Tees. . .

The Bailey, my Broadway buddie asked me to make her one in Wicked colors, so I came up with this. . .

The sleeves are puffy with slashes to show the green fabric underneath. I like hers but it needs something more. Any ideas???
I have no idea what happens at the bottom left hand corners. They turn out wonky but it looks okay if you're wearing it. . .
