351  Lotsa new stuff ,And the Best Pirate Fabric EVER! (pic heavy) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by violentjayne on: November 18, 2006 08:10:53 PM

Last month I went to some haunted houses with my mom and sis...One of them had the best line( yes I said line) ever! instead of being in the freezing cold rain.. it went through the isles of a THRIFT STORE where i got the most awesome pirate map fabric ever .. there was just this small amount
But amazingly it was just 25 cents!

So I made a mini ( not alot of options with such a small amount)

My Sister fell in love with the fabric and wanted something too ...So i made her this purse from the miniscule amount left over ..I had to do the back with a Skull and cross bones aplique I made from felt to keep with the pirate theme. and i lined the inside with fuzzy leopard and used an old belt for the strap

Here is the shirt I made myself to go with my pirate skirt ...Just another skull and cross bones from brown felt with gold stitching I made it kinda ragged on purpose ..to be more pirate ish..I also have a few ancor buttons I might add

This is a shirt I made for my cousin.. Its not really my style...but she is more girley and loves purple...I made yet another skull and cross bones applique only made this one from poka dot felt and added heart eyes and a bow I also added the straps..

 And while im posting here is another purse I made for my sister..

teenage mutant ninja turtles


I forgot to get a pic of the inside but its bright green fleece and has 2 inner pockets that zip and the whole purse zips

 here is a close up of the buttons I made from an old 70's make your own button kit

Thanks so much for looking
Have a great day

352  Rib cage dress and a little skirt. in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by violentjayne on: November 05, 2006 08:51:34 AM
  So what could be better than Halloween ? day after Halloween sales ! I found several cool t shirts marked down to 1 and 3 dollars so I stocked up on a bunch to recon ... here is the first one ... Many more to come.

The (black , orange, and white ) stripe area at the bottom is actually split , so its easier to get into and out of ... It fastens with the 2 little black buttons in the front.. the very bottom is black fringe, I wanted to use lace .. but couldn't find mine and was impatient .. I think the fringe turned out ok ... gives it kind of a flapper feel ...what to you guys think ?

side view

Gratuitous booty shot

This is just aquick skirt I whipped up for my little cousin ... It started as an xl womens dressy type shirt ...But i knew ( Aly) would love the sparkly fabric.

although she doesn't look to thrilled in the pics. .. she was actually pretty happy with the skirt .., ( she wasn't happy to be taking  the pics with her ( non matching shirt on ) he he !

so here they are

shirt tucked in

The pics don't show just how sparkly the fabric is ... its kinda see through so it as a gray satin underlayer .. she is demonstrating in this last pic

Thanks for taking the time to look !
 As always I'm a comment addict .. so feed back is much appreciated !
Have a great day

 so here it is ... its no wear near as good as the other corsets  that have been up recently .. . and it has no boning .. but none the less I'm really pleased with it .. please let me know what you think ...

 the front (Animaniacs)

355  Hot NURSE ! button-up mini-dress (with tute) pic HEAVY (now with bag) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by violentjayne on: October 21, 2006 08:35:21 PM
Yay! I finally made my sexy nurse dress! I'm really pleased with the way it came out I made the little red cross patch and added low pockets like on the front of lab coats. The belt is just one I had , but I think ill make one thats a little thicker eventually . I also want to come up with some more nurse/Dr type patches to put on the sleeve and maby a cool name patch too . so If you have any ideas please share them .also I REALLY NEED TO MAKE A NURSE HAT  to go with it so If any one knows how or knows a tute PLEASE HELP ME ! i would really appreciate it .I also took pics along the way ... its my first attempt at any kind of tute so bear with me ...

you can see the pockets in this one

Now to get started .. what I did was make a pattern dress along time ago out of some material I don't particularly care for .. just to get a shape I like for future reference . This one is pretty much a long t shirt that flares a little at the bottom...

I just double the fabric and trace the pattern dress

then pin and cut it out

then you remove the button strip and collar from an old  shirt
and pin it on... i reccomend to start in the middle of the back of the neck so everything ends up straight.

next just cut to desired legnth and hem , hem the sleeves and add your "hot ( insert theme here) button-up mini-dress" details and accessories..and wa  la !

Its super simple ! especially since the sleeves aren't separate pieces . I really hope that some one tries this and posts pics . I would love to see what creative versions you come up with ! I will definitely be making more also !

Thank you so much for taking the time to look.
Please let me know what you think .
Have a great day !

356  Hot waitress ? button up mini-dress! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by violentjayne on: October 21, 2006 01:56:18 PM
hello everyone .....

well today i finally got the white fabric to make my "Hot nurse button-up mini-dress" (which Ill be making this weekend and taking pics along the way for a tute) But I was board last night and had a black button strip and collar I wanted to use so ... I made this...It reminds me of a waitress .. what do you guys think ? these are all based off my original pattern for "hot camo button-up mini-dress". for some reason Ive been really obsessed with uniform theme dresses! no clue why . If I worked where i had to wear a uniform Id hate it ... but for some reason its fun when your not really working .. kinda like a Halloween costume for everyday use he he !

ignore my messy house and dirty aquarium ( i just got it last week ... and it had been seriously neglected ... trust me its looking better every day compared to the state it was in ... but blah blah blah I'm sure you guys don't care ... I'm rambling he he !

close up of fabric

back view .. i think i may add some corset lacing or something....

Thanks for looking
as always comments and suggestions very appriciated.

Have a wonderfull day

belt loops


And now close ups of the bag ... i lined the inside with fleece and added 3 pockets 2 of which have zippers.. I tried to do It kinda neet so I can reverse it if I want more orange ...I LOVE CAMO AND ORANGE..plus I added alot of orange stitching to tye it all in

358  Re: super-easy scrap skirt>>pix! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by violentjayne on: October 16, 2006 09:40:56 AM
I really like the mix of different fabrics ! If you are worried about exposing yourself Id try and add a simple square skirt underneeth and maby even more of the scraps if you have any left to make it like a more puffy tutu. here is a pic of one I made thats really based on the same Idea.
since she is a little kid I had to be extra carefull to make sure no panties show , But yours ofcourse dosnt look so kiddish because of your choice of materials. so I hope I was of help . and keep up the good work !

so here it is

the top has a little pocket with a skull stud its kinda hard to see in the pic.

and in case you couldnt see them good enogh a close up of my awesomely cool , but super painfull boots .. I do love them so !

360  New Halloween belt and accidental pirate shirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by violentjayne on: October 07, 2006 03:30:30 PM
Hello every one ,
 This first shirt is one I had for a long time I had ages ago cut the sleeves off and I never really liked the way if fit although I love the skull and cross bones. So the other day I decided to put striped sleeves on it. Really I never even realized it looked pirate ish it look until my bf said yo ho ho when he seen it . but I love it none the less and he really likes it to , it was even his Idea to add the black x stitch detail to the sides.

so finally here it is

close up of the side x es .. I did them in sharpie ... shhhh it looks like thread he he

 This is the best time of year me . I love Halloween ! and the great thing is all the thrift stores have cool costume stuff thats great to recon into wearable clothes. ...

 so hear is an awesome belt I made from some old skeleton gloves and a belt that came on some jeans

I know its not for every body but I really love it !

And ta da the back ...

As always I love comments ! please let me know what you think.

Happy Halloween !
