oh crap and i almost forgot... here's an update.

i haven't touched the nekromantix dress since that night. got distracted by... men. *sigh*

but last week i whipped this up in time to wear to the GBH show.

here's what inspired me. I bought this headband like 4 years ago knowing it would come to good use for crafting  Smiley i tried thinking about what i could do with it...

"checkers hmm?" so i dug through my box of 500+ (yes five hundred) t-shirts to find this one.

one thing lead to another and 1 1/2 hours later...

i loooooove it... and i've worn it 3 times already. finally something i made that i like wearing  Grin
only thing wrong with it is that the red fabric is waaaay stretchier than i thought and it fits a little loose so i need to take it in.... eventually. haha

2  4 punk recons from old tees! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by kellieperson on: May 24, 2008 01:05:09 PM
(1) I'll start off with my most recent one. i just started & finished this one last night. Unfortunately i have a huge ass and it's a bit too snug in the hips so it's gonna be sold. but i'm really proud of the way it came out. still debating on whether or not i should put a zipper in the back. what do you guys think? it would be only 5 or so inches long, opening from the bottom.

(2)  this dress i made a couple weeks ago to attend a show... only to find out i'd have to take the bus home at like 4am. & thats not happening so it's been hanging up with the rest of the stuff i've made.
it's still really unfinished. I was going to put a band of polka dots around the top... but it came out all runched up. i guess i have to cut the fabric at a curve? and also was debating ruffling the bottom or something? (im obsessed with ruffles lately!)

(3)  now, this dress, i started making about 2 1/2 years ago... but life has distracted me and finaly i finished it back in Feb. it started out of course as a ginormous t-shirt. then i cut it into a pillow case, then a skirt (pretty much a pencil skirt), then it kinda sat around for a while, and i FINALLY finished it up. the ruffles came out horrible but my friends think it's amazing anyway. someday i'll actually wear it out.. *sigh*

(4)  oh wow, here's another one i found. i made this a couple years ago. the band is a buncha friends of mine and they're young kids so they couldnt afford shirts. i decided to stencil one. they were so excited about it. i wasnt. soo i cut up the shirt into this!

i should take better pictures but you get the idea. the edges of the top part had to be done by hand because my machine hates sewing spandex. i made the stitches little X's. All the guys were AMAZED when i wore this to their show.  Smiley

(5) and lastly this discharge dress i made over the summer. took a lot of work. these ruffles came out perfect but i havent been able to make em as good since =(

i have to fix the back. it's got elastic along the top and it keeps runching up the words and folding over.
