Note: all my stuff is HAND-SEWN I do not have a sewing machine, these things take hours. I don't use patterns, I have very little money so I use crappy material.
My pictures will never EVER reflect the actual clothing, it doesn't do them any justice.
edited in photoshop for clarity purposes only.
ANd most of my stuff is SUPPOSED to look grungy and dirty.

Here is a hoodie I sewed to a plaid shirt, cut the arms off the hoodie and did a design on front and back. take a look at the zipper too.

Design was done with nail polish, fabric paint, embroidery thread and Mountain Dew.

That looks really cool. The eclecticism (if it wasn't a word it is now) is charming. An action shot would be great.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

That is a really cool design. And I have to say I would never be able to hand sew anything for any length of time. And the pictures look fine, but I would like to see the garment on someone.

I'm all for chaotic desings, so I really like it, and I admire your patience to hand sew everything, and I think that on close like this handstitching adds a little funkiness, which is great!

i handsew everything too - i can imagine how much work you would have to put into that (and it definitely shows).  it looks great!

my one question is how on earth did you paint with nailpolish??? that sounds like a nightmare.

its a bi-atch sometimes, but I like it better, plus its not as disasterous when you hurt yourself.
Um, actually, the nail polish itself I used toothpicks and dipped them into the bottle for the fine work with it. then the spirals and swirls on the back were done by just taking the bottle upside down and splattering it everywhere, although I did have a specific design idea in mind. I also used nailpolish on the buttons on the two side pockets, as you can see from one of the closeups.

thanks!

That's astounding... a beautiful mix of nonchalance and fastidiousness... Cheesy (recently finished yet another lit paper, sorry)

The mountain dew part made me laugh, if I only had a fiver for every time my clothes had some sort of syrupy decoration.. XD

heh, actually I meant I used it to stay up to finish the project, I actually am very careful not to spill anything on what I make, as most of it I have to wash by hand, but mine have a lot of syrupy decoration too X3

So, the Mountain Dew is used like bleach?  is it drizzled around on it?  that's the only part that confused me...

I adore that most Craftsters here are finding ways to cover up their stains on their clothes by reconstructing, and you do the opposite.  Make what you want to wear, right?  Smiley
