From a large Wednesday 13 shirt. Spectacular, I know xD
Oh, and I got the red fabric from a Hell Bunny skirt I never wore and had dissected.

It wasn't hard to make at all, once I had figured out a pattern. At first the back part was too big ("I" and "want" were on separate lines), so I had to cut all of the words out and sew them on the back of another piece of fabric. That turned out really good. And I had lots of fun with the eyelets xD I recently bought a Crop-A-Dile which I had been dying to test it out and this was the perfect opportunity! I love that thing Tongue Speaking of, the four extra eyelets weren't intentional xD I just ran out of ribbon.

I think it turned out pretty good. Except the white strip at the top.
It was so stupid; first I had made that part out of the red tartaney fabric and the straps out of the white fabric and it looked awesome and was completely finished on Thursday and I thought: "Wow, for the first time I won't have to rush my outfit the morning before the thing." (I was going to my fourth W13 concert the next day and wanted to wear it then)

BUT. I had overlooked one teensy little detail. THE RED FABRIC DIDN'T STRETCH. So after I had forced myself in it, I came to the sad conclusion that the top part was wayyyy too tight and looked like crap. Then, about an hour before I had intended to leave, I had to neatly get that part off and make a new one out of fabric that did stretch. Which is why it's so crooked now Tongue

It didn't look so bad when I had it on though. In fact, it was a perfect fit Smiley I don't know why it looks so big on my dress form. It's my size. And I got lots of compliments on it ^^ Shame I didn't see Wednesday himself after the concert this time...

Ahem, anyway. Here's a virtual cookie if you actually read all of that xD
I tend to ramble with these things.

On with the pictures!

Side:

(The white square with the star is a pocket. I can get so annoyed at pocket-less clothes, especially at concerts)

Back:


So, what do you think? As people who are not Wednesday 13 fans who can't sew themselves Tongue

I've always wanted to make a dress like that but I'm too afraid I'll mess it up Sad

I love yours though!

wonderful! I love wed 13 and this is a great way to show your love! He makes all his own stage clothes so it's always nice to see fans that do the same!

I made a bauhaus tee into a skirt when i went to see him last year and some chick showed up in an all bright pink playboy outfit with her cheeky buns hanging out.

>Tongue

great sewing, wish I could do that!

THUMBS UP!
