462  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / What are some cool ideas to fix sleeves when resizing tee shirts? on: April 13, 2006 10:12:53 AM
I'm off from school today so I'm resizing all my huge shirts. A couple of them are fine because the sleeves still look normal but some of them the sleeves are a) way too long b) where they attach is like way lower than my shoulder.

What can I do to make the sleeves look better? So far my ideas are just cutting and hemming the ends shorter or cutting them off and closer to my shoulder and then reattaching sleeves of a different fabric.

Ahhh.. the "prom dresses these days are boring" post that I did is a gothic lolita dress from VictorianMaiden. I discovered this girl's livejournal (Totedum.livejournal.com) and was introduced to the world of gothic lolita. Let's just say I'm OBSESSED now. Some of it's too frilly for me, but I'm still in love =)

So, I made my own.





It was based on a dress from Victorianmaiden.com .. I started with a basic tube top dress pattern from McCalls to get the bust fitting right and then altered the pattern for a much bigger skirt and a slightly larger back so that a zipper was unneccessary and I could fit in it with just the corset. The bottom is lacy and then gathered with a bow but it's hard to see in the pics ... sorrrrrrry. The underskirt consists of a normal slip with a giant piece of toule sewn on top. We sewed the toule, then pulled the thread to gather it and make it extremely poofy. Halfway down from the toule we sewed beige muslin so the toule wasn't visible.



This was my first attempt at ever sewing basically. My friend helped a lot but I think it was very successful.
