1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Two Shirts Into One I'll Actually Wear- GREEK WEEK 1989 on: October 21, 2007 08:21:11 PM
I had a blue and white fitted baseball shirt with a design I don't like and an XXL shirt with a design I really enjoy.

I just cut out the front of the smaller shirt and sewed on the front of the bigger shirt. Does that make sense?
Haha, wonky collar-

The front was going to end up longer than the back so I added a stripe onto it. That makes me happy.

Here's a better picture of the graphic-

Here's another shirt I found thrifting and sized down to fit me-

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Resized Tee with Bleached Pattern on: October 18, 2007 10:43:42 PM
Took a t-shirt with a colour I loved and sewed it down to fit me. Sure it was nice, but I wanted to make something that stood out more.

I used a baby gate fence.. thing and brushed it with bleach and then laid the shirt on that for a few seconds and got this!
Look at me, being all creative and such.  Roll Eyes

Here's the side-

I love wearing this under a hoodie or a blazer.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / my first non-pattern peice: a hoodie on: June 28, 2006 06:58:42 PM
i had a hoodie that i didn't really like. it was too short and it didn't fit right at all.

so, i cut it up.

i used the peices to help guide me to make this:

i like it better closed (it's not as tight as it looks around my waist)

i lined the hood with light blue

i couldn't find any wood buttons small enough, so i took brown plastic ones and scratched them up with sand paper.
i think there's something wrong with the tension in my sewing maching thouhg, 'cause towards the end it started to pull some of the fabric and it bunched up. i pulled and ironed out all the bunches, but they left some wonky lines in my flower (as seen in the last picture).
can anyone point me to some help for preventing that?
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / red and white, tube top with wraps... on: January 17, 2006 04:11:03 PM
i made this over the weekend. when i wear it i want to put a hibiscus behind my ear and lay out in the sun...

i put a little zipper in the side where i attached the long tube of fabric. there's another tube on the other side, but no zipper.

the back, where it can tie around my neck.

this is the fabric, with little boat steering wheels.

this is my most shining patternless achievement! i love it.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / too short skirt- *finally fixed* on: August 29, 2005 06:35:06 PM
i started out with this pillow-case circle skirt: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=45663.msg413628#msg413628

with a little help, and the awesome donation of another pillow-case from cataway, turned it into this:

sorry the colours came out weird  Undecided

it's not a lot longer, but it sure is way more wearable than before.
what do you think?

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / batman pillowcase into skirt on: August 03, 2005 06:35:04 PM
i made this last night. sure, it's plain, but i love it.

i like the cinching at the top, it's easier to wear.
the back has the same 'bat-mobile blueprint' background, but it has batman flying instead of the car.

close up of the fabric

it used to say "batman returns" on the bottom on a big red stripe, but i had to cut that off so i could walk
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / too short skirt on: July 29, 2005 03:37:32 PM
i've decided to quit the lurking and ask for some advice-

i made a skirt recently, and it's way too short. the fabric is from a pillow case, and i used all the fabric to make it, so there's no more.

i don't know if you can see it, but the bottom has two layers of fabric.

i really love this skirt and i don't want to trash it at all, but i can't wear it in public with my bum hanging out.
how can i extend it?
any idea's?
