61  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / 50ish dresses on: October 10, 2007 09:20:49 AM

The paisley dress on the left is one I made last summer from some pattern I got somewhere (yea, I know that's super helpful...). It has a pretty full skirt like the cherries dress but you can't tell in the picture. The cherries dress is one I got at goodwill for $5. It used to be a halter but I seam-ripped off the straps, took it in a  bit, cinched the front a bit, and added the ribbon at the waist. I also made the earings.

And yes, we are doing the sorority lean (shh...don't tell anyone...)

Also, that is about the MOST unattractive picture of me ever...
63  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / $2.50 PJ pants on: October 10, 2007 08:49:49 AM
I just bought a new sewing machine with my summer internship money (a Singer 7444 in case you were wondering...). My old machine was some kind of 1953 Singer...so older than both of my parents. And while it was super badass, it could do nothing beside basic back and forth stitching. So to celebrate my new amazing purchase I made a pair of PJ pants. I like my PJ pants to be able to cover my toes when it's cold and I'm already pretty tall so I usually have to buy guys PJ pants, and they never come in girly colors...



I just traced around my favorite pair of way-too-short PJ pants and added 8 inches. Oh yea...the fabric was $1/yard and is super soft light flannel.

What about painting it with a wagon design from an old timey movie, like Professor Marvel's wagon from the Wizard of Oz or the manure cart from Back to the Future III?

I saw a set of bedsheets at goodwill that I absolutely loved...but I don't have a twin bed. So the next best thing was to make a skirt!



I made up the pattern, but based if off a skirt I had when I was little.
66  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / yay pretty clock on: March 31, 2007 09:02:18 AM
I had this ugly black and white $3 clock and took it apart and paint it pretty springy colors. I broke the second hand putting it back together, but who really uses the second hand anyway?




It's kind of crooked, but I don't use it for time really anyway...
