1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / What are some options for making a too-short dress wearable? on: January 19, 2015 10:41:39 PM
I bought a dress, this one: http://www.hottopic.com/hottopic/Clearance/GirlsClearance/Bottoms/Disney+Tangled+Silhouette+Skater+Dress-10213674.jsp

Just in case that link ceases to work though, it's basically a stretchy skater dress with a tank style top.  The top portion fits me perfectly, the problem is my big ol' butt takes up too much skirt real estate. I kind of guessed from the picture that I'd need to wear some tights under it, but even with tights you still want your whole butt covered. It's just long enough that when I stand perfectly still and don't move at all, it covers everything.  However, if I lean ever so slightly to one side or another or heaven forbid, forward, I'm putting on a free show.  So I considered letting out the hem, but there's hardly anything to work with.  I also considered adding maybe a wide solid black border around the bottom of the skirt, or even cutting the top from the skirt, inserting a wide black band into the midsection (but that sounded really, really hard.)

P.S. I know nothing about sewing, so the simpler the solution, the better (although I'll probably recruit my mom anyway, who would not consider herself a seamstress but can actually follow easy-moderate patterns successfully.)
2  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Used flash cubes? Polaroid negatives? on: January 04, 2012 11:56:26 AM
So I found a 1960s Polaroid camera that I've been playing around with lately and I bought some flash cubes for it off of ebay (like these: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Magicube-Modified.jpg) But can anyone think of something to do with them once I use up all the flashes?

Also, this is one of the packfilm style Polaroids where you have to peel the photo off of the negative, which I think looks pretty cool- anyone have an idea for what I can do with the negatives?

Longtime lurker, 1st time poster!!!
Anyway, this is what you get when you mix some beat up Chucks, fabric, fabric paint, ribbons, sharpies, and one chick who seriously loves Across the Universe:

My boss Smiley


Sorry no before pics, just imagine the standard pink high top, but covered in dirt, failed temporary tattoo attempts, and general wear and tear.  
The tongues are covered w/ some music fabric leftover from something else, the laces are ribbon from another project, the red letters around the sole are the lyrics to "Hey Jude" and I guess that's about it.
So what do you think?
