I made a bag out of a pair of pants! yay! I took the bottom of one leg and cut it off
here's a pic:

then I cut the waistband off because it had a pretty floral print on the inside, and I used that for the straps and then sewed on a button

43  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / wrap skirt to top on: April 03, 2008 12:22:13 PM
I had a purple wrap skirt that I didn't really like, but I loved the fabric...it's all shiny with little mirrors sewn on....I love shiny things : )
anyway...I made it into a top...I like it, but sometimes it looks kind of flumpy....yes, I just invented that word : )
so, anyway, here's the pictures:

and here's one of the back:

the one of the back isn't a good picture...I'm slouching : )
if anyone knows how I could make it less flumpy please comment!
44  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Dress to shirt thing : ) on: April 03, 2008 08:15:52 AM
Ok, so I had this blue silky chinese dress thing that my grandma gave me when I was like 3, and it finally fits me : )
but I don't really like it, so I cut it and hemmed it to make a shirt thing...
I know, not a whole lot of effort on my part, but I like it...
I'll post pics later....

OK: here's the front:

and the back:

comments would be great!

Hi! I live in canton, new york, which is like a half hour from the canadian border...
I'm 16, homeschooled, and I love going to the thrift store, buying clothes, ripping them apart, and sewing them back together again...as something different, obviously : )
I love this site too!!!
