1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Class to Trash II...the shirt (photo obese) on: February 14, 2006 02:10:05 AM
But how is a sex suit "class?" hah

yeah. i guess the sex suit was pretty much the farthest from class one could find oneself...but the other shirt (before i cut open the front) was very conservative and i suppose classy. Smiley plus it matches the skirt, so it has to go by the same catchy title. or i would have upset the balance of the universe. we can't have that, now can we?

Well, my last post was the skirt with chains and lace. The skirt loved it's new life in the trash lane (the good kind of trash!), but it begged for company.
I took a trip to the local thriftstore, and I picked up this creepy sex suit (i don't know what you call it, bodice?), and cut off the panties part that buttons up coz...ew. and then, i sewed some of the lace from the bottom to the chest area to make it less see-thru. I also took this ruffly top i've had for the longest time, and I cut open the front. I then sewed it to clean it up and added eyelets out of some black material. The final result is a sort of reverse corset that LOVES my skirt.

Here's the visual explanation (i took off the before pics coz y'all use up my data transfer limit):

the end result.

a non-blurred picture of me clubbing in my recon. unfortunately, u can't see the skirt. but there's the shirt!

may i suggest posting descriptions of some of the items or listing the materials u have to work with? even pictures might be nice. Smiley

if you are into making some small purchases, i suggest some of the following: neat buttons, rhinestones and glue or those spikey backings, fabric paint (u can get fabric paint in metallic pens, which i find really neat and more mature looking that puffy paints...which are cute too), lace, ribbon, etc. you can even use things around the house like jewellery. i once took a playboy pendant off of a necklace (got sick of wearing it) and sewed the pendant onto the back of a thong...hehe. ooh one of my favourite things to do (i did this recently to jeans) is to go through tattoo galleries online and find a really neat design and then paint it onto the jeans. i used a silver fabric pen to do a dragon on my jeans leg and it looked sexy. i applied rhinestones on the eyes.

hope this was inspirational. i can't wait to check back for your responses and maybe find some new ideas for moi. mahahaha.  Kiss
