Alright so I finally got around to doing another photoshoot, first one since last summer. Here we go.

First I have a Used tee - Took it in and added sleeves. The sleeves are a stripy cotton with a really soft and fuzzy fleece at the end.






Balboa Island Tee - Started out as an oversized tourist tee from Balboa Island, CA turned into a tube Top with stripy and 'x' hand stitched trim. The logo is for 'Blackbeard's Tattoo Shop' {nonexistant, I believe.}



This one also shows the back of the skirt I'm going to show you next.



The skirt in that one I made from a pair of lounge pants. I cut off the legs right below the writing on the butt and sewed the legs together and make a circle skirt. The butt says 'Angel Patrol'



I thought I needed a pair of skinny jeans so I took some old jeans my sister gave me and attacked them. Not only are they skinny jeans now but they have customs holes and ridges and I sewed some ribbon in them.






Thankyou for looking and make sure to check out my other posts and my website please.

Looks great, but how did you turn the jeans into skinny jeans? Cut and re-stitch? Super cute regardless!  Smiley

I just kept taking in the legs until they were tight but not too tight....? I don't know I stink at explaining how I do things.

Crafting, Internet, and Pepsi are my weaknesses!
