1  ratty old dress form turned christmas tree/art in Completed Projects by cheery_vagrant on: December 13, 2008 01:55:57 PM
I don't post on here a lot, I need to change that. I'm STILL not up to 10 posts yet! Alas, it's still links for me  Sad

So a few years ago, I got this old dress form from my grandma. Sadly, upon closer inspection, it was revealed to be broken and shedding dry-rotted foam. Yuck. So I proceeded to set it in my hallway where it remained as an eyesore and hat rack for a couple of years. Today I was rummaging through some old stuff and found my green Christmas lights and wondered what on Earth I could do with them. Then I got this idea...

Broken, so sad. I'm stripping off the old, nasty fabric.


Halfway there! All duct taped together.


Final product!


You can't really tell from the picture, but the lights are very bright. And contrast with the orange dress in a fabulously tacky way.  Smiley

2  Red jumper, my first real project : ) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by cheery_vagrant on: August 07, 2007 09:17:42 PM
Soo like a month ago I bought this remnant of red synthetic type stuff. And was like Hey! I can make a dress! So I did. And I finished it in two days. But I'm a slacker and didn't reinforce the straps until tonight. Oh well.

Regular old action shot...

Ha..chest shot. Just ignore that part.

And of course, the mirror shot. I had to do it!

And if anyone is wondering, the black and white shirt isn't part of it. Just a random shirt I have that I thought looked pretty with it Smiley

Oh and if there's any trouble with the links, let me know.
