11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / tube top recons! on: April 14, 2010 12:52:20 PM
I have two new recons, inspired by my new strapless bra.
I have really big boobs, so finding a strapless bra that fits and actually works is something to celebrate about!
What better way than with tube tops  Grin

All these are hand sewn, so.. that's my excuse for them looking kinda funky.

This one was a large men's tee that said "My balls itch" or something. It was retarded so i cut it off and used the rest of the shirt to make a boob tube

(very serious expression, for a very serious picture)

This one was a GIGANTIC shirt. Like, I've never seen a shirt so huge. Like, the entire tube top is just the front side, and bottom half of the shirt.

I don't really know what the print is on it, but it's pretty awesome so whaaatever. :3
12  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / a series of t-shirt recons on: February 17, 2010 08:28:09 PM
I have a terrible addiction, I can't even lie.
I could pay someone's salary at Camel.... but that's a story for another time.
This is my goodwill addiction. They have giant t-shirts.... for a buck fifty.... they're basically begging to be cut up and colored on and tied up and destroyed by the evil likes of bored craftsters >:333

I have at least a dozen giant men's goodwill shirts laying around my apartment. This is my current "to-do list":

(i'm especially excited to do something with the poker playing popeye one. look at him! he's so hood!)

 I'm slowly but surely working my way through the pile. Pretty much whenever I get too lazy to wash clothes I make something.

This was a standard white men's tee. I saw some dude with the most kickass shirt, it was just a big skull but for some reason I didn't ask him where he got it from... so I had to rip it off, of course. some walmart spraypaint, cardboard, scissors, and like 30 minutes later....

What crappy stencil job, but I don't mind it. It looks intentional since I frayed all the edges and did some blowouts on random parts of the shirt.  Grin like a boss!

I have a couple other recons I've done in the past few days, but I haven't taken pictures yet. I'll do all that tomorrow and post some more. It'll be like... the evolution of mivzi's t-shirt reconning skills! hell yeah!

I really love that coke shirt! Would you do a mini tutorial of how you did that? I have a shirt it'd be perfect with, but I can't figure out how you did that. Would it be okay to hand-sew it, or does it need a machine?

super cute!  Grin

That dress is adorable!  Smiley
18  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Help me make this wrap and snap sweatshirt!! Patterns, advice? on: November 07, 2009 07:02:49 PM
It looks like it just has snaps on the top corner of either "flap", so that when it's wrapped around the top corners meet at the middle and have snappies on them.

But while you're folding the bottom flap over, you would have to be careful to keep the top one over it so it doesn't roll up under it. I just tried it with a scarf and it seemed to work, but I'm not sure.
19  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Hoodie help please! (recon) on: November 07, 2009 09:46:40 AM
Yeah, the tag says the inside is 100% poly and the outside is 100% cotton.

Where would I find Procion MX? Is that the kind of thing they'd have at the art store?

I'm pretty lost on this, and could use some help. I've seen different posts all saying different amounts of fabric needed. As little as 2 yards, to as much as 11 yards!

I want to make one that's pretty short so I can wear it as a shirt, then try again later if I want a longer one. Would 2 yards work?
