Rigor Mortis gets you STIFF!

Hey crafters!! It's been awhile since I've posted some new things, my camera broke so I had to wait until I got a new one! As always I'd love to hear what you have to say. If you have any ideas you'd like to see let me know, I'm always up for a challenge!

This started out as just a normal Andy Warhol shirt that I found, but it needed to be jazzed up a bit, I did so with black lace!


This checkered number started out as a skirt but it flared out at the bottom, it wasn't very flattering, so I turned it into this vest thing.


I really love the rose fabric I used, it was from my mom's old gown, and the top is crush velvet.


Of course hello kitty! My sister in law gave me this Hello Kitty shirt when I got out of the hospital so it's special so I turned it into a dress.. I find them more comfy

This is two pieces, the pirate shirt and the red dress over it. Their meant to be worn together, but I really like mixing and matching Tongue. Plus I love sailor esque things. The red dress was a different sailor dress but the halter top was not cute on me what so ever.


This blue vest i got at Steve and Barry's when it was still open, but it was boring. So I added burlap and I molded polymer clay and made those hearts for it and added some chain. This one has a couple different pictures :].




If you couldn't tell I love red, white and black. ha ha. I'm sure everyone has seen the tux shirt somewhere. Well I merged it into a dress as usual!


So this last one is actually really funny. I love cardigans. this just came into my head, and it is now called the metal cardi. HA HA HA



This was just a boring cardigan, so I added chain on to it!


*BONUS!*
My friend needed a model for a project. It was a 40's pin-up lion tamer. So I made both pieces. I thought you guys would enjoy these shots!




If you have any questions feel free to ask!
Remember! Being a crafter means never being bored! Cheesy!

Trust me, I started sewing by hand when I was younger, then probably by the time I was 15 I finally got a sewing machine. I had no idea how to work it and ruined so much at first :].
