formerly size 2 regular fit black glo jeans, now size 0 super skinny fit reconstructed black jeans.


made entirely from scratch from some cute random vintage fabric i found in my basement. i just barely had enough fabric of the same print to finish it with. buttons are also vintage, circa 1950s from my late grandmother.


thrift store reconstruction...used to be REALLY ugly...i'll admit it looks much better on a person than it does hanging there rather pathetically...


i love saying things with my clothes...made entirely from scratch out of  the material of which a 2x t-shirt from jo-ann fabrics is made. yes, i'm a vegan and proud of it! i hope that's apparent...obviously...lol...


used to be a tacky dress made by dickies...i don't think i'm done with this one yet, it's a tad bit boring...

I like the thrift store reconstruct.  You really don't see enough dark green and black combos.

yes, i laid a pair of my own skinny jeans over them, traced with tailor's chalk, and cut around them. then i made them a tiny bit skinnier and hemmed them twice, locking the seams in the crotch and at the bottom hem of the legs  Smiley
