11  HELP ME FIND... in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by lollie_pollie on: July 06, 2008 06:46:54 AM
I would like something that I can use to create a corset effect. I believe it is called lacing tape, however I do not want the kind with eyelets. I want something that I can sew into the side of a dress to give me this type of effect:

Does anyone know A)what this is called and B)where I can get it? Huh Huh Huh

12  Giraffe! [Pic Pregnant] in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by lollie_pollie on: July 05, 2008 08:12:33 PM
So...today I didn't have to work! How fun. So, I pulled out this awesome [but tiny] child's tee with an awesome stuffed giraffe on it.

Close-up of the awesome giraffe: [I've named him Henry.]

Before: [Along with the plain tan tee I used.]


I added 1 in panels to the sides to make it a bit roomier. And, of course, it was too short, so I added about 3.5 in to the bottom.

Then, I found it was still a tad tight in the bust area, so I added the keyhole back to give it a bit more stretch.

QUESTION: The keyhole is kinda sticky-outy. How can I make it lie flat?

Edit: Side panels are super easy. Just chop off the seam all the way up the side and the sleeves.

13  The twins. From Juvenile to Kick Ass. in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by lollie_pollie on: July 02, 2008 03:07:46 PM
So...I started out with two identical jewelry boxes (why I have two is a long and complicated tale) from my 13th birthday.

However, as I am no longer 13, the juvenile feeling of these babies had to go.

So, I used my trusty Marie Claire and Elle magazines to form these wonderfully preppy jewelry boxes.

14  Music Notes + Zebra Print = Revamp Love in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by lollie_pollie on: June 10, 2008 10:52:55 PM
Sooo...I had this old jewelry box. I love it. However, it wasn't very attractive and the hardware had all broken and fallen off.

[I had already taken off one door and all of the broken hardware.]

[Great shot of the broken junk.]

So, I found some awesome fabric/ribbon at Michael's. My total for this amazing project was about $6.

[Isn't she beautiful?]

[Close-up of the awesome new drawers.]

P.S. There is still a red/gold design on the windows, it's more obvious in the before picture.

What do ya'll think?

15  WEEKEND PROJECT! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by lollie_pollie on: April 27, 2008 01:58:45 PM
This is what I did this weekend: Wink

The before materials. I used an XXL yellow shirt, an ugly long sleeved striped shirt, and the too small Gurious George Shirt.

Then, I turned out this. And I must say I'm damned proud of it! (Ignore my horribly messy teenage room.)



Bust (I used this tute http://www.whatthecraft.com/tuts/cbust.htm):

What do you think?? Grin

P.S. I found some old (we're talkin' wooden spools) but GREAT quality thread at a local thrift store. I think I got like 10 spools for $0.50.

16  My First Dress Recon in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by lollie_pollie on: April 26, 2008 10:30:21 AM
So, it's nothing amazing but I love how it came out.

I got this dress in a swap online but it was too big and too short.

So I added to the bottom, took in the sides, and added some embelishment on the sleeves.
Ignore my messy teenage room.

Yea. Had to get one in there with my tan line. Haha.

What do you think?? (Sorry pic quality is not so great.)

17  Pink Polka Dots and Houndstooth in Shoes: Completed Projects by lollie_pollie on: March 29, 2008 10:21:39 PM
So, I bought these flats at Claire's for $3. Grin

Then, I realized they were uncomfy and tacky. (Yes, they're clear.) Sad

So, I found this AWESOME fabric at Walmart for just $1 per yd. Grin

I used my trusty glue-gun and some ribbon to add extra spice! Shocked

What do you think??? Huh
