So i had this skirt that was plaid and had a banded waist. the waist sat up a little past my waist, because I am long-waisted and it was a small size for me. picture of the waist button and preventing my breathing:
and unbuttoned where i get my breathe back.
So i was sitting there looking at this skirt figuring out what to do... then i found this little black top. would have fit nice, if only the overside 3/4 sleeves hadn't existed and the shirt hadn't been so short.
So i decided maybe I would cut off the sleeves of the shirt, making it a tank top. then i cut off the waist of the skirt and sewed the tank top to the skirt:
everyone else on craftster complains about their stupid facial expressions so I decided to give myself a reason to complain =-p.
Then i decided to use the nice hemmed waist band and put it to use! I wrapped the waistband around my upper arm (the shredded/cut side closer to my shoulders) to measure. luckily, i had enough waistband to do both arms. I sewed on the sleeved, and ebcause of the hemmed band, i could make holes and sew on buttons to make button-cuff puffy sleeves.
here's the finished project in a lame action shot.
sucky photographer + sucky phone cam= sucky pics. but that's alright. you get the idea.
tell me what you think =D
