1  Sawed this shirt... in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by shinekomi on: October 21, 2006 11:29:01 PM
Alright, I'll stop lurking.  This forum is such an inspiration, and I admire the work that everyone posts here.  Too cool.

So this is my first successful reconstruction.  Go me.  
Anyways, I was pretty wired one night, and was musing about Halloween costumes.  I decided to dress up as a Gothic Lolita/Aristocrat (still deciding).  So I hacked up a huge black t-shirt I got from Comic Con to make a 3 tiered skirt.  Not a big fan of Saw- I haven't seen any of the movies.  It's just when you're at a convention, you can't help but look for free stuff.

Here's the shirt:

And here's the skirt:

Here's me standing in front of my grimy bathroom mirror modeling the skirt.

And the tutorial I used:

I haven't decided if I'm going to gather the sides.  And I'm planning to put some lace on the middle tier after I make a run to my local Michaels/Value Craft/JoAnn's.

It's not professional at all (there are so many mistakes), but at least it's decent.

Operation T-shirt to skirt = Success.  Now I have to go about making a petticoat so the skirt will go poof!  And I'm turning to the tutorials here.  Go Craftster.

Thanks for viewing!

I started on this too!  Here's my progress!

Actually, I've made more progress on this since I've posted this.

I like this pattern. I'm reusing the yarn I used to make a Tempting to make this. The yarn is a cotton acyrilic blend, and I don't remember what brand or percent. I just need to find some time to finish it.

I like the ones started so far. Cheesy

Longtime lurker at Craftster deciding to pop out from the shadows. Hi everyone.

One time I was browsing through the knitting section, and found this:


This pattern looked like a good introduction into knitting lace patterns, so I decided to give it a go. So I reached into my yarn stash and pulled out my floppy Tempting that I made a year ago and decided to frog it. I figured that I wasn't using it anyway, so I might as well use the yarn for something else. So, I'm not really eliminating my yarn stash... but I am using what I have! And this pattern is really fun to knit. Smiley
My progress so far. And I'm frogging the tempting while knitting the cami. Not the smartest thing to do, but fixable, no?

I also made this http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring06/PATTsakura.html for my mom, substituting the brown for a really deep green and the pink for white and purple for red. I think the white and red combination for the flowers go really well with one another. I just have to felt and assemble it, and it will be finished. It's amazing what you can finish in a weekend (especially while on a plane and/or at a fencing tournament)!
