I found this website today, and I must say, I'm completely in love with it!! I've taken a fashion design/marketing class at school this last year, and was able to sew to my hearts desire there, but at home I don't have a machine. So now that school is out, I really don't know what to do with myself now that I can't sew! I've been planning projects and buying supplies, but it's all really useless unless I have a machine.

Anyways. So, in inspiration to do something crafty, and the lack of a sewing machine to do my projects, I resorted to cutting up old shirts Smiley Which was great fun!

Here's a tank I (literally) just did. I wish I got a before picture, but I got too carried away with the cutting.. :/  It was a baggy boy-style tank before..

And here's the after pictures!




I have a summer dress from Wet Seal with that same style back, so that made me happy. I'm not too pleased with the front, however. It seems very plain... I'm thinking of adding some sequins or something. Any ideas?!

It's totally cute Grin, how did you get the back done? I think sequins is a great idea, or maybe an iron on picture.

Sequins could be cute, you could sew them on in like a flower shape or something, like maybe in one of the bottom corners.. by hand of course  Wink

It was really easy - I just looked at the back and cut two lines, dividing the back into three sections. Then I cut diagonally on each section. Then Tied them together!

I really hope that made sense.. I guess I can draw it out to make it more easy to understand.. I'm kinda bad at describing things :/

I like the top...and your hair!  That's what I want mine to be like, except my bangs are toooooo thick!

nice top- and i remember when i first found this website- it was a feeling of elation, quickly followed by the realization that i would be craftster addict. Tongue

youlittlerabbit: Yes! I've already cut up two shirts, made patterns for a dress and a skirt, tried out stenciling, and decided that I need to make my own earrings. Haha! I did all that yesterday! It was almost ridiculous... almost..  Smiley

someperson and guitar*girl: Thank you so much about the hair comments! I really do love my new hair. And I say new because I'm naturally a blonde..  Grin

When the backs of the shirts are done like that they usually look really..slutty? But that looks compleatly awesome...It must be becuase the strips of fabrics are bigger...I looooove it!!! Might go try it.. Awesome though!

Well...Damn The Man!!!

I agree with crazyfool. Those tops I normally dont like, but you pulled it off quite well and I think it's adorable. I know what you mean about the whole craftster addiction. Now that its summer, I check back about once every hour to see if anyone has replied to my posts, but thats partly because I dont have ANYTHING to do but craft. (But who's complaining?)

To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong.
