14  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / (Really) Little Black (Tshirt) Dress on: August 18, 2008 05:34:13 PM
thumbnail for previews =d

So i've literally had this shirt since i was in fifth grade. HEre's the before pic: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/45/Dare_tshirt.png
They give it to us for finishing the DARE program, and since they ran out of all wearable sizes, i think i got like.. a XL or something. So i gave it to my dad and its been sitting in his closet for like.. the last seven years. OH and it was also the shirt that got me started on sewing! The first time i've ever heard about reconstruction was when I saw a halter that a girl had made with her Dare shirt and I was like "wow that's pretty cool!" and after that, I got into reconstruction, and from there, progressed onto sewing XP.

So i've been on a crazy dress obsession since... like.. march, and this is the first OFFICIAL dress i've made since then. A homage to sewing, for me, i guess you could say. The shirt wasnt long enough to turn into a dress, so i had to add part of another white tshirt, but the tshirt was OBNOXIOUSLY stretchy, so the white part of the dress was all warped and stuff. Hence the belt.
But after adding the band, the shirt was STILL not long enough to be a dress =___= so here it is in its micromini glory. Should i make it longer? >< >< I have enough fabric left over from the sleeves to add another .. two inches i think.. but i'm scared it'll look puffy and weird (From stretching) ><;

closeup on the ruched front! yay

close up on the top

close up on the strap! they're slightly ruched, and supposed to fan out over my shoulder. I was thinking of adding a flutter sleeve, but I saw a DKNY dress that looks just like my dress (except with a tie, not a belt, and.. much prettier =d ) with flutter sleeves, so i decided not to =d Ignore my brastrap please Sad

I kind of wanted to insert triangular panels on the bottom (kind of like.. pleats) kinda like this => but the pink would be white..
what do you guys think?

asdf comments critique?! please =d thanks XP

15  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Skirt or Top? HELP DECIDE on: August 11, 2008 08:17:12 PM
So I dug out this skirt from my closet yesterday... its about five years old, and back then, i REALLY like hte asymmetrical hem. now i realized.. not so much. So i was thinking of ways to recon it, and all of a sudden, i thought, "Why not a top?!"

theres two ways i could wear this skirt as a top, and i'll show you it as a skirt as well:

pardon the shortness (and my lack of .. er.. pants o.o;) I promise you won't see too much =d .. and i'll wear pants underneath! OH and sorry about the bra strap exposure, for those of you who might get offended >< I'm not comfortable with bralessness at ALL, and i misplaced my strapless bra =d

as a skirt:

as a top: seam FRONT (so i was thinking of covering the seam with a piece of contrast fabric, maybe dark green, or white) and adding some buttons

as a top 2 : YOKE front (i dono what i'd do to change it though...)

Even though i think wearing it the first way would be a bit more bothersome when  it comes to reconstruction (sewing buttons over a SEAM? ew Sad i think it'd be kinda cute..
but i really like hte way the SECOND one skims over my hips :

OPINIONS PLEASE?!?!?! and suggestions on how to recon? SadSad any ideas appreciated! THANKYOU

17  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / first time with pattern = purple and silver dress on: July 25, 2008 03:04:26 PM
LOL so i call this my slut dress only because its a) the shortest dress i own =d  and b) I shortened the hem about.. 5 inches from the original pattern.

I used Simplicity 5112, but i modified it a LOT [since i used stretchy fabric, i got rid of the zipper, moved the hem up, added a little silver bow]. It was my first time ever working with a pattern, and.. well personally i feel pretty good about it Cheesy

I made this for the season premiere [back WAY when] of America's Best Dance Crew. Since one of the girls on Kaba Modern is one of my school's dance instructors, a whole bunch of us from the dance team went to the live auditions to support her Cheesy since the dress code was "Club wear".. and I dont really own anything particularly clubby... i made a dress! Cheesy so here it is.

I didnt really get any shots of just me... so.. yay for action shots! Cheesy

And i think its necessary for me to mention that i had the third shortest skirt at the entire speech banquet Sad hahaa

comments? critique?

19  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Re: ROY ROY ROY OVERLOAD! (image heavy) on: July 15, 2008 08:41:33 PM
LOL the comic on the first pair of shoes is actually also a mural on one of the walls at my highschool XP
i never knew it actually comes from something LOL

but yeah. great job!!!
you really just use acrylic paint? doesnt it bleed if it gets wet? or are these like.. just for display. and do you know if it cracks?
i use acrylic paint mixed with textile medium, but i havent heat sealed any of my shoes yet.. so idk.

if you have any more info on how you paint shoes, please do indulge me! Cheesy

Awesome shoes!  A girl I work with recently painted a pair of plain white shoes she got from Walmart!  I love your design, they are super cute!  I would totally buy those!

would you really? cuz i'm thinking of doing like.. custom shoes / shirts / whatevers for sale, and i was kind of wondering if people would pay for stuff like this. =P
how much would you pay for something like this?
