1  20 minute skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by chicas on: September 24, 2006 06:03:57 PM
So the other night I was headed to a theme party, but I am also fashionably challenged, so I had nothing to wear to it. The theme was professors and schoolgirls. Considering I go to school in the middle of nowhere, our shopping options were very limited. I went to the cheap clothing store and found nothing, but my roommate found some plaid material for $3 a yard. I got two yards, and in 20 minutes, whipped out a skirt and bows for my hair. [also, i had no sewing machine, so the whole thing was made by hand!!] It's really basic and really slapdash, but here it is.

the other girl in the picture is my roommate, who went as a professor.

so, yes, I realize what we look like. But I am pretty impressed by my last-minute crank out a skirt abilities.

2  life aquatic hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by chicas on: August 03, 2006 03:49:35 PM
so i found a pattern online for the ned plimpton [kingsley zissou] hat from the life aquatic. my friends are completely obsessed with that movie, so i decided that since i just got my wisdom teeth out and i have bunches of spare time, i'd make one. unfortunately, the pattern was not made for my abnormally large head, so it's a little short. if i could do it again, i'd make it slightly longer so i could roll the bottom lip up and attach the buttons to that. but either way, here is my first forray into headwear.


that page has a picture of what it's supposed to look like. and if anyone wants the pattern, let me know.

comments appreciated!

Hey. Normally, I have sideswept bangs that are slightly too short to tuck behind my ear, and are slightly too long not to be annoying occasionally. However, I love the length that they're at. Occasionally, I want to get them out of my face, and I've liked what I've seen of peoples pomps. I just don't know if it looks normal on me, because I have these strange wispy bits on the corners of my forehead.

What do we think, kids? I like the smaller pomp on me... I don't think I'm ready for a full-grown one yet.

4  shirt dress? mebbe? in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by chicas on: July 04, 2006 04:26:40 PM

So, stealing the idea from  here ( https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=16741389.0 ), I made a shirt dress out of a men's shirt. My only issue is that since I'm semi-tall, and the pattern that I fell in love with only came in extra large, the dress is a little shorter than it should be. I was intending on wearing it with jeans anyway, but it just looks like a smock at this point. I pinned the sides in until they fit me nicely, sewed them and cut off the excess. I left the sleeves the original length, and just roll them up when I wear them. Finally, I moved the pockets down to hip-level where I can use them.

comments on the length or anything appreciated. and thanks so much to stopthefacades!

Ok, so I need advice. I want to cut my hair before i go back to school in August, which is when I usually get my hair cut anyway. My only problem is that I always want to do something different than I normally have it, but I always chicken out. Lately, I've been dyeing it a dark burgundy color. Either way, I've wanted to go semi-short for a while, so I need some help with what would look good with my face. I have a really round face [yeah, i hate it], and i feel like short will just make it look rounder. Any advice would be fantastic. Thanks!!!

this is the most recent picture of my hair down. OH, THE EMO-MYSPACINESS OF THIS PICTURE!!!! sorry about that.

7  old, oversized shirts to... well... still old, but not-so-oversized shirts in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by chicas on: June 03, 2006 05:30:24 PM
this one was pretty extra large, but i loves me some ketchup, so my aunt got it for me anyway. lengthened the sleeves, painted a heinz 57 on the back.

this one was just semi-wide and long, but i never wore it because of that. added 3/4 length sleeves, resized it, and now i wear it all the time.

thanks for looking!!

8  fingerless gloves surround me in Knitting: Completed Projects by chicas on: May 19, 2006 10:53:49 PM
 just restarted knitting after a year or so. these are pretty simple. the grey ones are too small, and i wanted them in maroon anyway, so it worked out. got the pattern from an ohmystars (http://ohmystars.net/craft/indexknitting.htm) tutorial, an excellent, excellent source.


and i promise, my hands aren't really deformed.

9  wearable rolling stones? in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by chicas on: May 19, 2006 10:48:06 PM
so i had this rolling stones t-shirt from a while ago that i never wore because shirts never like to fit me. the other day, i got bold and just attacked it. this is what happened to it.



sorry about the boob shot, but it was either that or a face shot, and my face is not so good. also, i realize that it's not sewn so wonderfully, and that the design is slightly off center... or maybe that's just me being paranoid... anyway, comments appreciated!
