UPDATE [image heavy]:

I fixed the back of the dress, added lacing, and changed the strap on my pink dress.  Now I'm happy with it.  Also, since I have no business wearing my red tube top with the flower motif until I lose this winter chicken skin on my arms, I've joined the masses and am auctioning it off on Ebay.  Anyways, here's some other stuff I made recently:

A big shirt recon into a tank, with green watercolor and thread and bead vine embroidery

A hoochie, but easy draped neck halter (the one you see in all of the juniors's stores...see, they should just make it themselves...)  Just be careful when you bend over to pick something up. lol

A ribbon-tie painted halter that I'm pretty proud of..

And here's what I did with the rest of the shirt for the red tube top:

It's beaded, and can be worn both ways.

Hope you guys are doing well in your recons.  Wink

Here's another spring dress I made (not exactly a recon, but I need some advice anyway...):

What can I do to make the front more interesting?  And does the gather at the front look weird?  Should I put something there to cover it?   Huh

Hope you guys are coming along in your recons...  Wink

3  My First Recon in Craftalongs by strawberry_bliss_0 on: January 10, 2006 01:24:04 PM
First off, let me say that all of my stuff will be made for the spring.  I LOATHE winter... Tongue

Okay, here's my first recon...

Here's the shirt I started off with (sorry for the bad pic, but it's a deep red, not pink):

Adding one a huge white tshirt, this is what I ended up with:

I drew the design on the shirt, then traced the outlines in white fabric paint (Tulip).  I then handpainted the color with heavily dilluted acrylic paint (you know, the $0.50 tube at WalMart).  It kind of has a stained-glass effect.  Smiley

I'm pretty proud of it.  What do you think?  Cheesy
