11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Mommy's shirt: Groovified (and another shirt and dress) on: September 16, 2009 06:24:32 PM
My mommy gave me this shirt a long time ago. She didn't like it and it had a bunch of stains. It was in my fabric box with some scraps from a striped shirt and I noticed that the colors were about the same. So I joined them together because I thought it looked super cute and made this long shirt/short dress!

This was my brother's old shirt. I made it smaller and more fitted, then I took the sleeves and collar off. Then I put lace on it. The lace on the bottom is covering an ugly logo. I couldn't make it any shorter, so I couldn't cut it off. But I think the lace is super cute there. Cheesy

This next one I made from an XL men's shirt. I used mouse123's tutorial here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=177288.0
There was an ugly logo on the shirt that I wanted to cover, so I made a belt for it out of old sweat pants.
I'm standing weird, but hwatever.

Also, I wove strips of the scraps to make the straps!

Thank you for looking. Cheesy
12  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Two very different high-waisted skirts! (: on: September 06, 2009 10:25:52 PM
I live in a house full of boys and my mommy and, being a girl with my mommy's short genes, I am the runt and I get everyone's old clothes. Grin
This striped skirt was made out of someone's(I have no clue whose Cheesy) old long sleeve button up shirt.

The body of the skirt is made of the sleeves and the front sides of the shirt. And the waistband is just the back of the shirt.
You can see the breast pocket is now on my tummy.

The little parts where the sleeves button became my flies. (;

Then I also made a purple plaid one! This was from a jumper dress my dad bought for me. It was way too big. I kept trying to make it fit better, but it would not work. So I chopped the top off and took in the sides a lot, then I hemmed the top. I like to wear it with suspenders, but they're honestly useless. It stays up just fine. It has a huge zipper in the back.

And just for giggles:

This was one of my first reconstructions. I did it about four years ago, when I was thirteen. I used a black t-shirt for the body, old toddler tights for the sleeves, an old shirt for the trim, and a scrap of fabric for the pocket. Then I sewed a bunch of buttons on it. I was too lazy to make button holes, so I also sewed snaps on it to shut it. I was quite proud of it at the time and wore it all the time.
