21  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Polka dots are so cool. on: January 17, 2005 06:35:41 PM
I got out of school at 1 today, so I though, hmm, what can I do with my polka dot fabric? Make a spiffy skirt, of course! I spent about 4 and a half hours total on it. The red stripe along the bottom is bias tape, one side is pleated, it's got a zipper (my first in a skirt), and a little extended tab closure with safety pins. I'm debating whether or not to put a black ruffle under the bottom hem, so it looks like I've got something on under... the ruffle's edge is zigzagged with red to match the stripe and the polka dots.

Me, and my ugly legs in the skirt. Please forgive my hastily thrown on top. Heh.

I think my bed makes a better model.

22  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / The WHO? *hehe* on: November 14, 2004 04:02:26 PM
Well, I made this a while ago, but my sister just recently sent me the pictures. All I did was cut open the sides, put in white panels (the shirt was WAY too small for me.) and then I added a waist band so I wouldn't have to hem it. Sorry about not having detail pics, I wasn't thinking about that. lol.

That one's kind of blurry, but you get the idea.
23  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Warning tee...my first transfer on: August 28, 2004 03:16:48 PM
I've never done one of these before, so I thought I might as well give it a try. I just used a plain white tee (fotl) and the fonts "Famous Logos" "The Kids" and I think one called "Eight Track" but I'm not sure because I can't find it. lol.

24  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Teeshirt into halter...not to bad! on: July 02, 2004 10:14:41 PM
It took me a total of 3 and a half hours to do, because my sewing machine has evidentally gone out to pasture...  Cry But I think it turned out pretty well. I made all the stitching on the outside because I like it that way, I think it makes it look more reconstructed. I made it out of a too long, to small shirt from my one season as a volleyball player. The shirt shrunk, so I never wore it anymore, and I was like, this is still a nice shirt. This is what I came up with:
Back:

Side ties: (Left side only)

Whatcha think? I thought it was pretty good for not using a pattern. I can try to make a tutorial if anyone wants me to. And, brownie points, my DAD thought it was cool. lol.

26  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Teeshirt help.. :D on: June 16, 2004 11:47:33 PM
I've got an old volleyball jersey. It's got a v-neck, and it doesn't have sleeves... I want to reconstruct it, but I don't have any ideas. It's also got numbers and screen printing on it, and I don't really want to mess those up. Any ideas on what I could do to it?

Thanks, Caitlin
