21  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / halloween costume, halter, jean skirt-pic heavy on: November 15, 2004 01:13:18 PM
ok so i know its late but i was never able to get pics of my halloween costume... i made a blue fairy skirt out of an old blue formal i bought at a thirft store last year for 8 bucks but never got to wear... so i reconstructed it into this:

sorry about the jeans under but i just put it on and stole my brothers cam

and it laying flat

i added the tule (it wasnt from the old dress) and it basically just closes with some velcrow (sp?) at the top waistband... i wore a black skirt under it and wore the same black top... and of course i had some wings! (got them from the 99cents store! woo)

ok next thing... a halter i reconstucted out of 2 t shirts, an old navy one (the light blue) and a tshirt store one (the darker) pretty simple, kinda small for me though...


and last a skirt i reconstructed out of 2 old pairs of jeans, it isnt my size, i didnt plan to make it my size (i so cant pull off a mini, even though they do rock) but i had a slight problem...


do u see the seam done the front left side (its on the right) yeah sucks, i need something to cover it up and i havnt figured out what to do... i dont want it to be too much with the pleats and everything u know? oh and theres a seem down the middle of the back that i have to fix (take in just a tad) cuz it came out a little funny with the pleats... but i do still rather like it! ohhh and it goes at a slight angle (this i love) anyways any ideas to help would rock...

hope u enjoyed!

23  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / clutch (i love clutches!) on: November 01, 2004 09:37:54 PM
just some fabric i had the all blue is a semi strudy fabric and the other is a basic cotton... all i did for the flower was cut circles and hot glue them together (i rather liked how it came out) and i hot glued a safety pin to the back and here we are... the pics will tell the rest (im wish i had put something in it to make it not so floppy...) oh and i didnt use a pattern i just kinda did it... however i did look at a clutch i already had to help determine the size... if anyone wants a tutorial, feel free to ask... however im not sure how good of one i can write up...

entire purse

layed flat


flower close up

there ya go...
24  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / too small shirt=new (semi)fitting shirt on: October 28, 2004 07:53:04 PM
ok so this shirt--

was to small for me, i got it free for a club i was in (co-president of...) last year and knew i wanted to do something with it and so i did what i could to make it fit! so the shirt was free and last year i took the material from my sewing class so basically this cost me nothing! lol awesome huh?
front, after

back, after

please excuse the ugly bum and the crappy mirror pics...the sleeves came out kinda funny and its too short for my taste, but i dont mind pairing it with a longer shirt under it! hope u enjoyed!
