21  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / So full of awesomness you may not be able to handle it [PIC HEAVY] on: March 13, 2008 02:15:08 PM
Okay, so I decided to finally get off my bum and actually post stuff.

So this was a gianomorous blue t-shirt from Michaels.  I saw this:  http://i32.tinypic.com/2r4ndiw.jpg and thought, 'Wow, I could kind of make that,'  And then...I did....kind of.  It's pretty much the same but I had three buttons on each side (you can't really tell in the pics due to my crappy photography skills, but one button kind of fell off.  oops) and it doesn't criss cross in the back.



Buttons (the good side Tongue):

Bodice close-up:

Onto the next surgery.  So, I made this dress.  Cuz I was bored.  That's pretty much it.  Oh, well, I used 1 giant black t-shirt and some rad plaid fabric I had.


Bodice (or as my friends and I like to refer to it:  the booble region):


This one was for V-Day.  Um, I used a big pink t-shirt, and I wore a shirt under it and this belt.  The binding is from the rib knit in the original neckline.  Um, the straps aren't finished cuz I was going for the 'punk-edgy' vibe (actually, I was too lazy to Tongue)




Okay, this one has a story.  I bought this shirt in a thrift store and was like, 'I should make a hoodie out of this.'  So I cut the shirt in half on the non-graphic side and tried to put a zipper in.  then my machine decided to eat my t-shirt.  so then it was all holey and too small to make a hoodie, but I had already cut it.  So I set it aside, and behold, I found it again and came up with a solution!.......


And then VABAMM!!!!!!!!!!  Add another t-shirt to the back and you're good to go.

And so you can see the awesomeness of TWO colors (At ONCE!-kinda):

And now just for your amusement, my dog wearing a little hat I made for him out a Post-it note, and clearly not too happy about it.

What do you think?

Hello everyone!  For a while now, I've been making banners in Photoshop and thought I'd offer to make free banners, etc.  I know other people have been doing this too, but I really enjoy graphic design, and thought I'd offer.  Anyway, if anyone is interested, jut PM me!

3/13/08:  Just an update, I can still do some more banners, if anyone would like any!  I upgraded my archive-thingie: http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v344/cooleoest/Archive/?albumview=slideshow

Ah procrastination....midterms are next week and I probably should have been studying instead of making this.  Anywho, I used some cottony star fabric I had lying around (I was gonna make a skirt, but yeah...never did  Tongue)   I used Roethke's tut, but instead of using plastic from cartons, I used the tops of old hanging file folders.

Anyway, here is the results of my procrastination:

Comments welcomed Smiley

You could use this pattern w/o the waistband, tighter sleeves, and just add buttons: http://www.mccallpattern.com/item/M5137.htm?tab=dresses&page=3

You should cut off the sleeves before you resew the sides because you're going to need to make the sleeves smaller and the armhole smaller too.  To fix the sleeves, measure the circumference of the widest part of your arm and divide it be two.  Then fold the sleeve in half (so it actually looks like a sleeve) and cut that number you calculated before off the bottom.  Then line the sleeve up (still folded) to the shirt and mark the sides of the shirt so that the armhole will fit your new, smaller sleeve.  I suggest you cut off the extra (unless you're unsure of sizing, then wait until you've sewn it and tried it on to cut), and then sew on the sleeves.  Lastly, sew up the sides.

Sorry bout such the long post.  I hope that made sense.  If it didn't, there's a tut. here: http://www.whatthecraft.com/
