1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / cute green empire waist dress out of a bedsheet! on: November 26, 2006 03:14:28 PM
my mom gave me some sheets she didnt want anymore, and I loved the color of one so I decided, why not turn it into a dress?

and so I started...


two days later...


its one of the first things I had designed, and it turned out quite nicely.  Its super comfortable and I wear it all the time!

questions, comments, critiques welcome [=
2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / 8 stencils-stars, dane cook, airplanes, pocky, and more! picture heavy on: November 26, 2006 02:57:53 PM
just thought I'd post with some of the stencils Ive made over the last few months..

this was one of my first stencils, a birthday present for a friend.
 She came up with the acrostic for her name and asked for me to make it into a shirt. 


I did the huge letters with iron-on transfer paper, and touched it up with paint, since at the time I felt too lazy to cut out the larger letters. 
This, however, was a mistake.  After wearing the shirt a lot, the iron-on letters faded but the stenciled ones stayed the same, so now Im in the process of fixing it.

The moral of the story: stencilling beats iron-on transfer. 

another one of the first stencils I did, just an image from stencilry. 
I think it looks a little weird with the paint color being lighter than the shirt color =\

this was a portrait of my neighbor I gave her as a graduation present.  I created it off a photograph: 

and a quick airplane shirt I did with leftover paint:

I was about to head to a party, but had nothing to wear (ahahah). 
So an hour before I left I cut out some stars and ended up with this:


my friend loves Dane Cook, so I decided to stencil her a shirt for her birthday in July.  She loved it, but ended up turning it into a patch:


a banana pocky shirt I'd been planning for awhile.  It turned out pretty well:

And finally, another party came up and I found myself once again with nothing to wear.  Since I had just discovered the band Shiny Toy Guns, I made a shirt with lyrics from one of their songs:


and thats all!  questions, comments, critiques always welcome. 

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / dad's old shirt to cute skirt ! :D on: July 25, 2006 09:15:46 PM
I just joined this forum today, so I figured I'd post a recon I did recently.  My dad had a bunch of old button-down shirts that were old/worn out/he didn't want anymore, so I figured I'd try to make something out of one.  The result: a cute new skirt!

Here's the shirt before:  

...and then the finished skirt!

I stuck the pocket from the shirt onto the front of the skirt

a close-up of the skirt/waistband..

and another.  The waistband got sewn on a little bit crooked, but overall, I think it turned out pretty well!
