1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Flirty skirty overall recon (for the curvy gal) on: May 24, 2008 03:58:47 AM
This was an idea I copied from violentjayne. Only mine is for a much more mature & plump figure. Very comfy to wear!!

From a pair of overalls that were too short in the legs, I cut the legs off right at the crotch saving the pockets. Then took a piece of fabric, sewed it into a tube. Gathered one end & attached to cut overall bottom.

Fun on the beach & the skirt already wet from romping in the ocean. & the bag was also home made by me.

Shaded, but to give a frontal view of creation.

Doesn't that torso look so thin?! ;> The grey shirt is also home made. & now that I'm 40, I get to wear ol' lady hats to protect my face from the sun. Fun!

eta a little sample of skirt fabric.
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Cool purse from cord pants on: December 04, 2007 05:24:16 AM
Here is a bag I made for the Christmas Stocking Swap for The Jenya. I started w/ a scrap of green cordery from my local Goodwill store. The belt is also from Goodwill. I used a pattern for a sling bag for the shell of the purse. The lining is a scrap of flannel & had around the house.

For the inside pocket I used the front pocket from a pair of black cordery pants that were handed down to me from a friend.

And the best part is the bottem of the purse in which I used the back pocket from black cordery pants. I left the tag intact & the pocket is still functional.

Pretty dang cool I think.

This is my version of McCalls 2250. The top part is a scrap of fabric I found at Goodwill & the skirt part is pieced fabric from JoAnns. My favorite dress so far.
