all of these made a while back, but i didn't get around to posting before.

so, i really, really wanted a sleeveless jean jacket/vest, while i had vowed not to buy anything new for at least a couple of months. & then i remembered that i had a pair of jeans in my closet that was much too big to wear anymore. & i made this:





i love it so much!

before:





i don't usually use store-bought patterns, but i did for this vest. it's one from burda.

& the t-shirt reconstructions:









made from a cancer bats t-shirt. it's one of my all-time favourite dresses. it's SO comfortable & flattering & colourful. & you know, has one of my very favourite bands on it. i only forgot to add pockets.
i wore this the last time i saw the cancer bats. liam (the singer) said it was awesome Smiley







from an evelyn evelyn shirt. it's kind of inspired by wearydrearies. i love wearydrearies. contour bust part i learned to do at whatthecraft.com. flower thingie was a hairclip.

I love, love, love them all, I think my favourite is the dress.  Do you use patterns for your creations or just wing it?  I would really like to see how you constructed them my daughter would go nuts for stuff like this if I could make it for her.
