1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / sewing machines are NOT my friend on: May 15, 2007 11:35:32 AM
So today I got this glorious idea of turning my Siouxsie and the Banshees shirt into a dress. I've been turning this around in my head for a while, and since I had the day off I decided to act upon it.

It was originally going to have a corset-like back to it, but when I started to sew it, I made the mistake of sewing it backwards and all the loops were now inside my shirt. Plus the fact that I'd accidentally sewn the front to the back just a little.

So then I decided "Hey, I'll turn this into a tank top!" and got another shirt to do the back with. After about a million tries on getting the sides right, I decided to add a little insert of black fabric on each side to make it a little bigger. I started to sew that up and found myself sewing into the other side of the shirt AGAIN.

So I once again pulled out the seam-ripper and decided I was just done. Maybe sometime when I'm not so pissed off I'll try it again, but I think I'm going back to hand sewing it. At least I can pay more attention to that, even if it takes longer.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / help me robert smith! on: August 03, 2006 12:17:55 AM
So I have this amazing The Cure shirt, with the most adorable picture of Robert Smith ever.

(crappy pic, I know)
Anyway, it's too big on me, seeing as how it's a Large and I am a tiny girl, only a Small.
I want to resize it but I was wondering if anyone had any interesting ideas for it. I'd like to do something fun with this one.
Thanks a lot!
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / A question about pants on: July 02, 2006 11:12:03 AM
So I have this pair of really baggy pinstripe pants. I completely adore them, but being the tiny 113 lb. self that I am, I look pretty silly in them. I want to resize them to make them tight fitting. I even have a pair of skinny jeans I can work with to get them the right size. But my problem is in the crotch region. What can I do to keep it from looking all saggy? Any tips would be very helpful
4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / my chemical shirt (first time poster!) on: July 01, 2006 09:01:01 PM
I've been into this site for so long, but I haven't actually gotten around to registering or posting until tonight. I love you guys so much, everyone here makes the most interesting clothes!
Anyway, so last summer I got my first pack of t-shirt transfers and ended up making this really awesome My Chemical Romance shirt. I did the image myself on the computer, and I must say, for a MS Paint picture, it came out pretty darn well.
Excuse the bigness and my dorky face.
