1  Nightgown Re-Con in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by misscynthia93 on: March 10, 2014 12:36:22 PM
 I've been wanting to try to my hand at re-constructing clothes into something fun and out of the ordinary.

I had this perfectly respectable flannel backed satin nightgown that I hardly ever wear and thought it would be cute as a babydoll nightie.  I cut just enough length to get the fabric I needed for the bloomers, added lace and here it is.  

Still think I might take the sleeves off, but given that it's flannel backed I might just leave it as it is Smiley

2  Re: Sheer blouse and polka dot circle skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by misscynthia93 on: March 06, 2012 12:59:22 PM
That looks so pretty!  Honestly, I can't see any unevenness due to the the way it folds.  I thought it might look too full without the petticoat but I think it hangs beautifully.  Thanks for posting it Smiley

That would be great!  I'd love to see another pic.  I like the idea of a circle skirt but never attempted making one for the same reason - that it needed a petticoat.

Here's a photo as promised  Smiley
I am wearing a relatively narrow slip to keep the skirt from being see-though but no petticoat.

I think circle skirts look great without petticoats too, I just like wearing petticoats Tongue
If you look at the hem of it like this, you can see how some parts hang lower than others - that's because it stretched on the bias, so watch out for that if you make one (it's best if you can let the skirt hang for a day then mark the hem while it's on a person or form so it hangs stretched). I think you should totally try making one if you like the idea!

3  First Project - Ruffled Apron in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by misscynthia93 on: October 26, 2009 02:57:42 PM
This is the first project I've posted here.  Recently, I've become obsessed with aprons and all things vintage.  Please let me know what you think.  Thanks
