21  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My first hoodie!! on: August 01, 2008 11:37:56 PM
I made this a while ago actually... but i want to show it off because i never wear it out. The shirt was on sale at Hottopic and i bought it for my boyfriend. it never made it to him because i was feeling rather creative and it was the first shirt i could get my hands on.
it was my first time sewing a hood, zipper, pockets, and sleeves. i'm proud of it.
i used some really cheap and thin black fabric for the sleeves and hood and i'm thinking of taking it apart and using some better fabric and maybe even line it. YEAH! so here are my pictures:

Thanks again everyone for your comments! i'm too afraid to go in and add pockets (i've never added pockets to a shirt) but i can try if i make another one. i liek the idea of lining the pockets in red.

 and, yeah, the hood is too small. It's just mostly for show.

i had originally planned to make the shirt into one of those heyhole tops, but something went wrong. i already had a big circle cut into it and instead of tossing the shirt i cut it up to the neckline and cut off the original collar of the shirt. i measured what was left of the neck whole and made the bottom of my hood match that and sewed it on where the rest of the collar had been. i traced the hood of a jacket and changed it up a little bit. i hope that helps, Caddylolz!
23  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / pants to shorts and a waist cincher on: July 31, 2008 06:08:03 PM
My friend gave me an old pair or pinstripe pants she had and i turned them into shorts and a waist cincher (i'm not really sure that's the right name for it).

here are the pants:

and the shorts:

They're just cut offs and you can see the chalk where i marked the length i wanted them to be. I made them a little longer.

Here is the under bust corset waist cincher thing:


and then another picture just for kicks:

sorry the picture angles are so weird, i had to take the pictures myself.

I'd love to hear what you think!  Grin

thanks for all the feedback! I do like the idea of pockets, but like marieC said they might turn out like those ugly stretched out looking pockets (and with my luck, that's what they'll be). I'm so glad you all like it! It makes me really happy.

made from scrap fabric and an extra plain black t-shirt. i feel like it is missing something, but i don't know what. the lace is not part of the shirt (i didn't make the lacy thing either).

comments? suggestions? i'd love to hear them!

your dress is beautiful, and the suit looks good. I like the colors you chose for the dress.

congratulations to both of you!

also, it might be just my eyes, but do you both have purple hair?
