1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Easy bubble-type skirt from a badly fitting shirt on: June 08, 2007 11:23:45 AM
I had bought this shirt in London on vacation, thinking that I would like the fit with a large belt to keep the bottom part under control.

Come to discover that first of all, it practically hung loose on me and second, a belt did nothing for it. However, since I hated to think of wasting about ten dollars, I decided to turn it into a skirt. And since I had no school and didn't/don't have to be at work yet...I decided might as well today.

The front (obviously).

And the side.

It took me maybe forty minutes in all, most of that fiddling with the semi-slippery fabric to make it a fairly even hem at the top. Fortunately, with the bottom the way it is--loose and bubbly, I got away with just a fairly even hem. I added a bit of a dart in at the hips because I have wide hips that mean everything fits there and is loose at the waist. Grainy pictures because no one else is home to help me take pictures. It may well get worn tomorrow to the fair, since it's getting wicked hot and humid.
2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / First stencil...and first craftster post. on: May 01, 2007 07:09:51 AM
Well, this is my first craftster post, about my first stenciling attempt. I'm a fan of Hello Kitty and when I found this image online, I had use it. Next stenciling attempt, I think I will use a different material for the stencil, but live and learn I guess. Sorry about the fuzzy picture.
