1  flowers on my recon- tee -cami in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by organic_sistah on: April 04, 2005 02:14:07 PM

Here is another top  I made  using a tee shirt. I dyed  the white tee with rit. Added a  waistband, some lace trim  and used  the remaints from the tee shirt to make the flower details.

I know this is prolly a dumb question, but what exactly is a "ruffler"? I'm assuming it's something that helps you add ruffles to your clothes but do you attach it to your sewing machine or is it separate?  Embarrassed

Btw, that skirt is really hot  Wink
Yep! A ruffler  is a  little attachment for your sewing  machine   that looks  like this
You put it on the presser foot thing on to make instant  ruffles and Pleats.

It's like  upgrading from dail up to high speed internet.

you can make them out of  denim jeans.
Like  these I made  for  my  friend awhile ago. 
These were easy to  make just cut the pants off of some jeans. (sorry that you can't see the details with this  crappy picture) but  I sewed on the waist band  from the jeans around the top and added a button w/buttonhole to fasten  the  closure at the calves. You can funk it  up  more  by adding denim jean pockets, rhinestones, sequins  and  such.

First of all check fabric for tears and bleach spots. If fibers have not been damaged beyond repair by bleach, use to remove or reduce the browning.
 FYI when when dying with bleach rinse in 1 part vinger 2 parts water to oxide the bleaching action and its easier to  rinse out.

Bleaching may be to hard on the jeans. Use or instead to lighten or remove the color as much as possible. Repeat the process if necessary to get it white.  Then redye it with a color with grey Rit Dye Color.

Thanks guys,  its feels really nice to  know that there are some folks out there that like my creations. Cheesy

Here are enlarged photos of the front and bottom for you to see the details

  I wish I had a shot of the back to  share with you but  I don't.  I  had these taken  because  I'm in the  process of  creating a look book and website.
Trendydiva> that  is exactly  what  I did...I sewed  some netting like and nylon fabric  on the bottom of the  bra to lenghten it  and  then I made it pretty  with some lace, Sequins, denim and faux flower details.
I wish I could keep it for myself but it does not fit  my boobs. Cry so some other Diva would just have to wear it.

7  mascra and old bra makes a sexy cami in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by organic_sistah on: January 03, 2005 10:49:28 PM
I made this little apron like Cami top with a VS bra that I could no longer fit  into my post pregnancy bust.
The front  has denim details around the bust line. A removable Faux flower and black lace corsage. And I replaced the straps with sequin string trim
here is  a close up of  my sistah friend in it applying  her  mascara

The back is open and I replaced the hook~n~eye closure with a button on denim base.

The bottom has  layers of  pink and black stretchy nylon  fabric with pink lace trim.

9  afro funk denim recon skirt (new images added) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by organic_sistah on: November 23, 2004 01:04:20 AM

As promised on  a human  model. This  pic was taken  last weekend at a fashionshow where I  showcased  my  designs.
The top is  a Shrug worn  back to front. The shrug was  also reconstructed from Old jeans that was treated in the  same matter  as  the skirt.

 I made this  skirt from a pair  of  old jeans that I cut,  flip around  resewed and airbrushed  with  fabric paint.
Here  is the  back of the  skirt ( my favorite) styled  with lace, an army patch  next  to a applique  I made from a piece of flowerprinted fabric. Also some  denim, red and blue sweater fabric that into appliques.

this is the  front
I sew a long red dress zipper, black lace red strip of  akoke' afrikan print and a green stripe woven trim

10  patchy skirt and tunic dress (new images in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by organic_sistah on: November 14, 2004 07:12:23 PM
this is what  the tunic concoction looks like on a live model

here is the back of the concoction

While purging my crafting abode I found some Denim and Jersey scraps amongst the miles of fabrics that  have  taken  over  my  space. Not wanting to part with these findings, I remixed and intertwined it with some colorful  lace and sequins trims then  brighten it with bleach and fabric paint.
