1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Leather and Chiffon Cocktail Dress (made from leather coat) on: August 25, 2014 06:58:38 AM
A couple months ago, I was invited to an independent artists event, which required "cocktail attire". Of course I wanted to make my own dress for this. I had a design/style in mind- a black dress with a leather bodice and a gathered skirt with a sheer overlay. I only had a few days to make the dress so I had to keep it kinda simple. I cut up a used leather coat for my bodice fabric and bought chiffon and some polyester knit for the skirt. Well, I wasn't able to finish it in time! I had to put a zipper in the back and didn't have an invisible zipper foot! D'oh!

But I finally ordered a foot and finished my dress recently. Here it is!

This is the leather coat I cut apart:

This was my second time sewing leather. There are a lot of things I know to do differently for next time! Like, I should probably put boning in it! Despite the mistakes, I'm still happy with how it turned out.

Thanks, everyone!
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Bra Top and Booty Shorts Set with Sheer Panels on: August 20, 2014 08:45:39 PM
I'm used to posting on the "Reconstructed" board but these are made from new fabrics! First, I made the bra top/bralette/bikini/whatever you wanna call it. It's a stretchy "wet look" fabric and I added some sheer sections. I didn't use a pattern but I did make my own as I went along. I was pretty happy with it but wanted to make matching bottoms! I decided on some booty shorts and gave them sexy sheer panels on front and back! Rawr! Oh, and I put a crotch lining in the shorts.





Modeled by Sebastian:




What do you think? I'm working on more like these and will probably make some with slight variations in style.

OK, I made a second halter top. This one is a smaller size and I changed my pattern slightly so there is no gap between the triangles and the band has curves.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / SID VICIOUS T-Shirt Bodysuit Cut Out Sides on: August 18, 2014 05:49:58 PM
Another t-shirt bodysuit! I gave this one halter style straps that tie behind the neck. Also, I reconstructed it to have a "cut out" back and sides!







Looks best on a real person! Modeled here by Canadian SG Hopeful, All Mighty Sif! I love how the cutout shows off her side tattoo perfectly!
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Emperor T-Shirt Bodysuit with Lace and Lace-Up Sides! on: July 23, 2014 05:32:09 PM
I made this from a men's sized Emperor (metal band) t-shirt. I only used the back portion of the t-shirt when I discovered how perfectly the logo and lyrics were placed/spaced! I used a stretch rayon fabric for the back half of the bodysuit and added stretch lace trim. I also gave it lace up sides with eyelet tape. And it's got adjustable elastic straps. I love it! It's kinda lingerie-esque.

Thanks, jexxican! That is some responsible parenting on your part. Maybe once the kids are in school... then you can rock out to Tool all you want! Right?
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / The Cramps Bodysuit from a T-Shirt. Cutout Back on: May 20, 2014 05:20:47 AM
I scored an awesome used Cramps t-shirt from a friend's record shop (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Rock-Roll-Graveyard/188016344569315). I made a hot bodysuit out of it for a friend. I sooo badly wanted to keep it for myself!



Back view. I cut out a portion to show some skin!


Side view with cut out sides. It was made for a bigger size than what I am so it's kinda baggy on me but you get the idea:

Looks like I never posted this one. Another one of my t-shirt corsets. Made from a t-shirt. Added a cotton lining, plastic boning and some metal zipper trim.

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / IRON MAIDEN Tank Tops Lace-Up Sides, Garters, Fishnet on: April 18, 2014 09:12:12 AM
Maiden is one of my favorite bands! So I had to do something awesome with these men's sized t-shirts. The first one I did most recently. I made it a garter tank, gave it lace-up sides and added elastic trim. Oh, and I positioned "The Trooper" across the bum!

Here's a great pic by photographer Kev Cool (NSFW!). My top was modeled by alternative model, Danielle Paine! It was great to collaborate with these talented people!

This one I did last summer. Basically just made it a fitted tank with adjustable straps.


I added fishnet/mesh fabric to the back:
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Skeleton Rib Cage T-Shirt Corset on: April 17, 2014 01:46:24 PM
I made a similar rib cage corset before. This new one is just a bigger size and it doesn't glow in the dark like the other does. It's made from a skeleton print t-shirt, has boning, and a lining.

Photographer Kev Cool (link is NSFW) recenlty captured some awesome shots of a few of my handmade items. Alternative model, VooDoo Jes (link is NSFW), rocked this one! I love how she layered it for a glam/punk vibe! Brie Godbout did the hair styling.


My awesome friend modeled it, too!


Slashed detail on the back! And a lace-up closure:


Another one from Kev and Jes!:


Thanks for looking!
