1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: "Mom jeans" recon to LowRise with tutorial (tons of pics) on: May 22, 2017 11:17:46 PM
Very easy to find the low waisted right now, but I remember when it was nearly impossible to lay my hands on a new pair! (smacks head) Why did I not even think of doing this? Thanks! It may come in very handy!

Nice to see the alternatives in the drawstrings in your pics!  That is also helpful.  I might try to put one of these together for my daughter from some t-shirt knit. Good to see how nicely they came out for you!

I am thrilled to see that someone else has tackled it at home on their own and mastered it. Doesn't look terribly complex, but I have thought that many times going in and been so wrong! lol  I too intend to give one a whirl. My daughter and I adore these and they are far too spendy for us, though I am sure they are reasonably priced for materials and time. I have garnered ideas for years and implemented what I can on my own. Not to sell or break a copyright, but for my use, which is perfectly acceptable as I know it. You did well. Wear it with pride!

Well done again. You've convinced me to try this. Need to sort through the rag's bag for some decent t's!

The patterns you added to hide problems actually tie it together by crossing over the panels onto the next, making it look totally designed that way! Well done!

Just did the same thing! The sewing Grandma!  However gals, it is so easy to sew up t-shirts that adding a bit of extra fabric for the front cover will be much cheaper than buying two shirts if you can make that much time! Certainly understand when you can't!

Always having a bit of tomboy running in my veins I find myself in very "un-ladylike" positions and these are wonderful to me. Best of both worlds because they look nicer than shorts, but have the advantages.

Love the waist band and two color option you used, splendid choice of detailing. They look great on you and will be ideal for biking.
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: Circle skirt (with tutorial images) and maxi skirt. on: March 08, 2014 10:52:37 AM
I adore the fabric in the first skirt, it is beautiful and works splendidly for the circle skirt.

I tend to wear the longer skirts more often and was fascinated by your comment that the maxi has a drawstring waist! I'm going to have to give that a try, maybe some 3/4" elastic in most of the casing with bulky cord on both sides so it holds up the casing like a waist band but has the comfort of a drawstring? Thanks for the idea.

Come to think of it, I'd love to make a romper but I'd have to find two of the same shirts probably!

Not if you did some color blocking like a quilt. Use an accent solid for a panel with matching casing on the top for the drawstring and on the hemline, with a rectangular section in the middle to lengthen as necessary. Then use the sleeves on the rectangle for patch pockets, in the same shape as the top ones if there are any, to reintroduce the color.

This could be a good summer top or dress pattern for wheel chair bound since it has buttons or snaps to be put on easily. Carry a shawl for evening.
10  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Sweaters that don't fit. on: April 14, 2011 05:44:38 PM
Not that you can wear them, but the ones I love too much to part with I turn into pillow covers, since they are washable.  I could not afford pillows so wonderful.  I use the others that I don't send for others to love and the parts left from my pillow making to make gloves to donate.  The cuff and collar work at the wrist, but there isn't enough, so make them longer and turn over for two rows of elastic or use ribbing.  I like to make them large and double the layers for really warm mittens since it gets very cold here.  They make a wonderful lap warmer for the car if you stitch a couple sections together that don't clash.  Have fun!
