1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Reconed Tees..... on: March 25, 2011 10:05:44 AM
I feel like it has been FOREVER since I posted. I have a few tees I want to share that I reconed, with more to come!

I cut the back into strips, and took a piece of elastic to rein it all in. It is simple and sexy.

I took this tee and added a sweater band at the bottom, sleeve and made it into a v-neck.

Isnt this fun? I love the diamond effect in the back!

This is simple to do and fun to wear!

I only got  shot of the sleeves with this one! It is a Bob Marley tee that is tunic length and hangs off the shoulder, I will post more of this one!

All those little diamonds have lace in them, it is very cool on.

Thanks for checking me out! I will be on here more from now on, I love seeing what all your curvy ladies make!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Fleece Cropped Jacket and Some Tee Re-Cons on: October 25, 2008 10:27:10 PM
I made this today from some Fleece I picked up at Jo Anns. I used a pattern, but cannot remember at the moment what it is. I modified it a little, and didnt use interfacing, but I like it, it helped me figure out how to attach a collar.

Front View...

Close Up


Im trying to figure out if I like it enough to wear it.

I made this from a mens tee and some black knit.

Added some long sleeves.

Made it peasant style.

I made this batwing esque top and i loved it! I sold it Sad, but I know it has a good home now..

Zip Up Shirt with Elastic under the boobies...

Pink Floyd Top with ruching by the collar and on the arms.

Thats it! Thanks ladies....
3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Tee Re-Cons and Dresses...FRIKIN Image Heavy on: May 23, 2008 03:19:30 PM
I did not want to add to my old thread, so here is a new one! I go through spurts of making things, this is my tee spurt once again.

I MADE A DRESS...It is so darn cute on. I made it from two tees and some knit. It has wonderful cleavage showing!

If I did this again, I would not of cut the strips on the sides to lace up so small, it took an insane amount of knit to get it to lace up.

Took this in and gave it a scoop...

Same as above, but with elastic in the middle.

Made a dress from Vintage fabric

Ruched the sides....

Peasant Blouse

I love this shirt. It has a keyhole neckline and ruched middle

How great is this? I added grommet strips and some to the shoulder. A wonderful accident.

I kept this one. I took in the middle as well as added some ruching to the sleeves.

I loved this one too. I added some pink striped knit and made it into a hoodie.

Basic Tank

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Recon Mania- Harry Potter Shirts, A Tee Hoodie-esque Top, Boring Tank on: April 20, 2008 04:59:18 PM
I usually am over the curvy chicas boards, but I wanted to post here and show off my love for tee reconing again.....

Without further ado...

Gryffindor Top with Fluttery Sleeves

Who Will Die? This is from the Harry Potter Book release....Into a tank-ish top with thick straps.

Simple Tank from CBGB Top

I am so proud of this. I usually just stick with the t-shirt material and this is my first time really using something different.

This is me...CHEESE!

Thanks for the look chickies!

5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Super Simple Shirts-Added Some NEW TEE RECONS AND TOP! on: February 08, 2008 08:19:51 PM
The usual story. I bought a shirt from Old Navy I loved the shape of. Made a pattern..Which was super simple. Think...Bear Skin Rug. Sooo...

How it looks before I sewed it, this is after I cut it.

After! This is way cute on. I am probably going to add something...it needs...something.

This is way to much flowers for me...

Yay for stars again! I no longer have full yards of this fabric...boo.

ACKSHUN shot....

Have not made to many things as far as clothes lately...been making alot of bags...but I am back on a clothes kick!
THANKS for looking ladies...you guys ROCK!

Thanks for the look see!

ETA on April 11, 2008

Ok, Rather than add another post of tee recons and things I have made, I decided to just add to thie one.
So...Here they are....I have more, so I will probably update again.

I made this out of a Harry Potter Tee, it says, "7-21-07 Who Will Die?"

Same, Harry Potter Tee, But Gyrffindor Love. I have another HP tee to kill too!

Ok, initially this was supposed to be a skirt. Too big at first, so I fixed it...and made it to small. So, Pull up, and HAY! A tank....Yeah....I Love it. I am going to make some more like this....

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Skully Obi-Belt on: October 16, 2007 09:57:56 PM
I used the last of my fabric of this to make this obi-belt.
I used this tutorial after a google search and it was actually easy. It took me about, 45 minutes including cutting/ironing/sewing time.

Here it is just hanging out.

On me. I had to modify it, you know, me being a big gal and such.

I will wear it layered like I did here though, but maybe on it's own with a dress or something.

I am now, offically, on a belt kick.

7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Polka-Dot Messenger and Skully One too! on: October 04, 2007 10:23:39 PM
I am not new to making purses, but I am new the the whole messenger bag process.
I like the way this turned out. It was not as difficult to make as I thought, and this is a guina pig one.
So, now I know what not to do on the next one.

Skully Bag I made tonight too...I made this after I made the other one below.

Inside pockets!

On my mini-me Chelle.

The inside with a few pockets so I do not have to go around and find my buzzing phone.

I got the pattern from a purse I had used and tore up, but loved the shape of it. So, I butchered it and made a pattern. I learned the basics of putting the curved edges together from tuts.

Thanks for looking at the 1,000,000 messenger bag on here!
8  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Hoodies From Scratch *NEW PICS ADDED ON 9/28* on: September 17, 2007 09:08:09 PM
I used this tutorial I found on the board, https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=177602.0 , I eyed it for awhile, and then thought...WHAT THE HELL?

So, here it is....this is the first one I made.

On me...it fits PERFECT. The fabric is sweatshirt like with sleeves and the bottom and such I took from another tee.



I made this from a sheet I got at goodwill and some stretchy poly stuff, but it is to small for me Sad. I think because it is not stretchy at all. DAMMIT...I probably will sell it.

I made this tonight out of some $1 yard fabric from wal-mart. It is knit and it is sooo darn soft. The sleeves kinda bunch up and it is cool. I forgot the pockets, oh well!

Sorry for being such a post whore lately Undecided....I just am so bored at home...lol...THANKS for looking at my things ladies.

This is so darn cute, the fabric has little stars on it.

I am PROUD of this. It took me two days and it I love the color combos!
9  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Dress Form From Duct Tape and Pea Coat Re-Con on: September 08, 2007 03:09:16 PM
I attempted it. And I was actually surprised that it came out so well! My friend Rochelle came over and helped me out with it. She wrapped and wrapped and it took about, 45 minutes from start to finish. It did get caught under the squishy side of my arm and i got a big ol bruise from it!
You are supposed to do three layers, but we only did two because we got impatient!

Me all wrapped up in glory!

I had to masking tape it because it did not quite have my curves, so I measured and taped in the right places.


Side View

I am happy with this. I am going to call her Chelle, for my friend Rochelle who wrapped me! I would suggest you do this with someone you trust...they have to cute you out for crying out loud AND see you in your bra! I put a cardboard base in it, stuffed it with Poly and got a PVC pipe to hold all that weight.

Cost=$22.00 all together.

ETA- I used the form to make this pea coat re-con. Imagine a boxy, boring mens pea coat. And I chopped and sewed and chopped. This reminds me of something I can get at Old Navy. No lining, but this was ambitious for me.

On me, all you get is my smile!

On The Dress Form!
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Fun Shaped Polka Dot Bag, Tote Rainbow Goodness on: July 03, 2007 08:36:22 PM
I just made this bag and I love the shape! I have been on a tote bag making kick lately, but I saw a cute bag on Etsy with this shape, and looked and looked and made a pattern and HERE!

It is 16 inches by 16 inches, a good size for me. I made a smaller one, but it did not fit to my scale, since im a big girl. It has three pockets up front with snaps, a velcro closer. I love it, I would buy it if I saw it in a store!

Also, a mini heart patterned hobo with a zipper that I have not quite got the hang of yet.

I do not know if I posted this one yet, but I made it for my little sister for school. I hope she likes it, she is 14 and very hard to please!

I love the pattern on the front. It was an iron on I got at Jo-Anns.

Thank you for letting me share!
