33  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / reconstructed 1940s-style brassiere on: March 02, 2009 06:59:37 PM
Hello all,
Recently I've become frustrated with shopping for underthings, especially bras. Nothing ever fits, and if it does, it's padded. I guess they assume that all us small-busted ladies are ashamed of our breasts and want a little extra help. Angry  I'm also too poor to shop at boutiques that carry higher end bras. $30 and up for a single bra seems crazy!
Anyway, I've always loved 1940s style, and I think these old bras let breasts look more like breasts than the padded, weirdly-rounded,  boob-smooshing things I find in department stores nowadays.
I've been working on this bra for a few weeks at least, and it's FAR from perfect, but I love it and I think I will do better next time. The bra itself is made from a cotton, button-down shirt with a bit of stretch, the straps are cotton twill tape, and the lace along the bottom is stretchy too.

Front:


Back (sorry about the white chalk marks, I was too excited to post to wash it off first Tongue ):


I hope you like it! I was so happy to see other people posting diy underthings this week, I hope more people start doing the same. I could use more inspiration!

Oh, and P.S.: I've gotten comments on my underarm hair before, and I'd rather not get anymore. Yes, it's there. I don't shave, and I don't want to hear about how I should! It's my choice and this is not the place to challenge me on it. Thanks!  Smiley

So beautiful!
There are a few competing for the word "favorite" in my mind: the heart pair at the top of the page, the wing tips, and the ladybugs.
I really admire your dedication and skill!
40  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / (potentially NSFW?) extra large tee => the world's tackiest apron on: January 17, 2009 05:37:27 PM
My boyfriend loves to cook (lucky me!) but is really messy when he does so, and after x-mas brought him lots of nice new clothes, we decided that he really needed an apron to keep the mess contained and his clothes intact.  Several unsuccessful attempts to find a cheap apron at local thrift stores later, I decided I could make him one. However, I procrastinated for a few days until he announced that he would be baking delicious Spanish sweet potato cookies this afternoon, and I ran into my sewing room, calling back: "wait!! I'll make you an apron!!!"

Five minutes and really awful old t-shirt later, this:

And look, he's already smeared stuff all over it, lol. Anyway, I hated that shirt. I think a family member may have given it to me a few years ago, and besides the fact that it is about 3 sizes too big, look at the design! Ugh.

Anyway, the specs:
The edges are all still raw, because I was in a real hurry. The collar is intact, as a halter, and the waist strings are braided. In fact, I didn't sew anything! My only tool was a pair of scissors. Here is one more pic of the waist ties:

....and, because they came out sooo good, the cookies!

I can't wait to eat them!
