2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / halter and tshirt -> tshorts on: May 24, 2005 11:26:11 PM
being the procrastinator i am, i reconstructed clothes instead of doing homework. they're nothing special.

this is out of a shirt that i never wore. i probably still won't wear since i don't really wear halters.

these are a pair of a shorts i made out of a tshirt and a piece of scrap fabric.

i made them out of a tshirt and a piece of scrap fabric. it's practice for another shirt i wanted to make into shorts. i'm not sure if it's worth using another tshirt for..
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / my first not-formalish dress (now w/ tutorial for the back) on: April 18, 2005 01:39:52 PM
my spring break just started [yea i know, kinda late] and i haven't made any plans yet, so i decided to make a dress. since i'm too young to drive and my parents have to work i had to use stuff from around my house. i happened to have a pattern that my sister was going to use for her prom dress but didn't. so here it is:



back again

close up on the back

it's supposed to be a zipper on the side, but i cut open teh back and used velcro since that's all i had. the velcro is under the 3 strap thingys that go across the back.

i just made this for fun and don't really plan on wearing it. so what do you think?

edit// tutorial for the back is on the next page
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / first clothing reconstructions on: March 19, 2005 11:18:13 PM
these are my first attempts at reconstructing clothes. nothing special but i guess they turned out okay.

this was a long sleeved shirt and bits of a black tshirt

this was resized. originally XL-ish (minus the brown l/s shirt underneath)

skirt from an old pair of pants

and of course a matching bag from the pant legs

so, what do you think?
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / first sewing project, messenger bag. on: February 23, 2005 06:28:59 PM
this is the first sewing project i've ever done.

it was made out of a denim skirt, an pair pants and an old sheet. the pissed off calvin is from an old shirt. it isn't that great, but i guess it turned out okay for my first time on a sewing machine Smiley feedback would be nice Grin
6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / spike, the three-legged sock...dog? on: February 23, 2005 05:29:39 PM
okay this was my first stuffed toy. he's made out of a pair of socks. he only has 3 legs since i got lazy and didn't feel like sewing on the 4th leg. Cheesy he's wearing the toes from toe socks on his feet, but they're really there to cover up the horrible job i did sewing it up Embarrassed his ears tend to stick up and he doesn't really look like a dog..but o well Grin
