You did a great job!  I really like it!  Cool combination

Thanks!  I thought it'd be interesting to have a different type of closure on it instead of just tying it! : )

So I just made an apron!  It took approximately 1.5 hours to complete!  It is made of outdoor upholstery fabric, a belt strap and a parachute buckle!
It cost about 7.25 to make.  A little expensive, but I really like how it came out.  Please tell me what you think!  [Please excuse my fat butt!]

Hey!  A while back, I worked at a certain candle company.  I happened to save these signs from being trashed.  This was about 1.5 years ago!  I have yet to find something to do with them!  As seen in the pictures below they come in many vibrant beautiful colors.  They have tasteful words on them as well.

What would ya'll do with them?  They are 5"x7" and there are about 500 sheets all together. 

I really want to do something pretty with them, but I am unsure. : 0  I just didnt want the SM to throw them away because they were made of high quality paper and had beautiful hues amongst them!

You should be proud of yourself!

20  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Medium Chefcoat, now more formfitting. Still in need of assistance! on: January 19, 2009 08:16:13 AM
So, I walked into the scrub store and I was like Yeah, I need that Chef's coat, and I'm probably a small.  The lady looked over the counter at my hips and made eye contact for a second.  I guess she thought she wanted to let me find out for myself that it wasnt going to fit.  So she takes it off the hanger and unbuttons it for me.  I try it on, and I'm like, Alright, it fits.

Its gotta button over your hips.  She says, eyeballing my hips. 

So I proceeded to try to button the jacket over my hips.  No way in hell.  I lold and tried to pull it off.

She handed me the medium, and it buttoned fine. I paid 27.50 for it. 

I got it home, tried it on once again.  I had to stitch the arms to make them narrower and I had to stitch from the armpit to my bellybutton to make it more form fitting.  Damn men with their broad shoulders.  I didnt want to narrow up the shoulders because there is this big label on the chest of the coat, and I didnt want to mess up the investment I just made.   

I was telling my grandmother that I was making all of these modifications, [It was really only 4 stitches, but it took forever, because I dont think the BF could pin the excess of the coat properly, and I had to do it myself.]  and she was like, Maybe you should have gotten the small and moved the buttons over.

It made sense, but I really hate sewing buttons. : ( 

Any suggestions on how to modify the shoulders so they are a bit more narrow?  I'm not an expert on things of this matter, but I can sew.  I'm a little nervous because there is a bit of embroidery about 2.25 inches from the seam of the arm.  Would I have to take the arms off and restitch but an inch off of the shoulder of each arm hole?  I've never made a jacket or a shirt before, because I'm nervous about he arms holes.

Also, Im thinking about keeping the sleeves rolled up above the elbow, do you think its a good idea to make a small stitch to keep it up?

Here is the picture of it [Mind my messy appearance, I just woke up.  At least the pants are ironed : ) ]::
