Here is today's rainy day project and my first post (and first attempt) in stecilling. Homage to one of my favorite household names of all time. It started as a free-hand drawing that was based on the cover of his autobiography. The book is next to the stencil for comparison:

and on a white jersey tee (still drying):

Suggestions/comments are most welcome....

I cut the back too. It didn't stretch out in the wash, but it had been washed several time before I did the recon and I made it a little tight just to make sure it didn't. I was also thinking about putting some kind of shelf-bra in it just so my ladies have somewhere to sit, but I haven't done so yet....

Thank you all for your comments. I'm annoyed that there are a few out there who don't respect my choice not to shave and feel it neccessary to tell me so in a backhanded way over my recon'd shirt. I think you might be on the wrong forum. But thanks for the support to those of you stuck up for me and the integrity of Craftster.  Kiss

157  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / knee pads for the bipedally challenged (or for gardeners) on: June 12, 2006 03:48:21 PM
Surgery on my foot has left me on crutches for the next two months. Finding them to be annoying for quick trips across the room, I started crawling around, until my knees got raw from the carpet. Solution! Practical and stylish. I might keep wearing them once I'm off the crutches as a weird accessory or when I'm in the garden. They're made from the legs of a cat suit that has long since been trashed, folded a few times for padding and patched with green upholstry fabric scraps. My knees are eternally grateful.

I love the museum t-shirts that grandparents and other often clueless relatives give out in sizes that might seem insulting if you're sensitive about your weight, but that's why the Great Spirit invented recon:

sorry for the poor picture quality.

Inspired by the amazing creations I've seen on craftster and the lack of dresses that fit my shape, I decided to make something too....

trying to show the details of the bodice without much success:

and a detail of the back:

I didn't use a pattern, I just winged it. The paisley material was something I found on the side of the road, maybe it was a tablecloth. The green is an old t-shirt and the brown I bought at Joann's. I might add a few details like a paisley hem on the skirt, i dunno. Much of the bodice is handsewn because I'd just had surgery on my foot and couldn't work the pedal on my sewing machine. The surgery also explains the stork pose; I'm not supposed to put weight on my foot (crutches were cropped out of the photo).

Whaddya think?
