1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Men's button shirt -> Cute cap-sleeved top *DETAILED TUTORIAL!* [image obese] on: July 19, 2011 03:45:56 PM

I'm just so appreciative that you posted this. Have wanted to do something like that for awhile but have been scared silly by the buttons: even though it's not sewing buttons and button holes, feels like something's trickier to sew even if it has existing buttons with button holes on it.

Yup, we're all scared of something.

But now if I get in a shirt modifying mood I'll get to it with more confidence... AND your tutorial in front of me Smiley

Oh. No.

Minor crisis.

Was looking for these tops (and all the other clothes I'd modified) and remembered I gave them to an op shop because I changed my taste in clothes.
Didn't recon them further, didn't dye them, didn't wait to see if my tastes changed back, just got rid of them.

Won't do that again. Lesson learned. Have to get to modifying a new wardrobe. Fresh start.

Wait, did I actually start this by saying it was a crisis? Wow, well if this is bad enough to be considered a crisis in my books then I'm pretty lucky to have such a crisis free life!

Thanks for all your supportive comments, makes me feel like stitchin' Wink

They look fantastic, especially the pinkish image on they gray skirt: it's really effective!

If I was going to wear anything along the lines of a suit I'd want it to be a replica of that skirt suit! It's very flattering! No wonder you won, well deserved.

That pin is very very very cute. It looks good on clothes and I bet it would look just as good pinned to a bag.

I love the way those flowers just drift down the side, like they fluttered down from some kind of tree.  BEAUTIFUL.

that's EXACTLY what I was going for! Yay!

I love that!  I have a thing for jeans skirts...can't get enough of them.  I love to see people go somewhere besides the tried and true method.  I'm so inspired by your jumping into things!  That's the way I work, too!  And that dragon...yeah, he totally makes the skirt.  What a find.  Great job on the top, too.  Way to take what's great and leave the rest.

hey thanks! So nice of you to say  Smiley

I cut the straps off a gray singlet, took in the sides, made a bow and straps and a band of fabric for the neckline all from material salvaged from a horrific top I loved the material of from the op shop. Sorry you can't see most of the bow but I promise it's there!

This top fit to start with so all I did was cut out hearts, placed them on the top, found a thick yellowish thread in the depths of my sewing box, zigzag stitched around the hearts with my machine and then hand stitched a few sections Id missed  Embarrassed Decided it isn't sloppy stitching, it's charmingly rustic  Wink

Thanks for looking, hope youre all having just as much fun with your own recons!
