21  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Beatles Umbrella Kimono Top on: July 07, 2006 01:56:04 AM
I had an extra-large beatles tee with the "winter" shot from the cover of Beatles '65
I adored the shirt, but I couldn't wear it anywhere nice.
So, combined with a tube top I got at Walmart years and years ago, I made a kimono top:

Detail of Paul looking up at me :p

George is my favorite Cool
22  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / First generation T projects... on: July 04, 2006 10:18:00 PM
My dad was kind enough to lend me his Borders gift card yesterday so that I could purchase Generation T and put a dent in my T-shirt collection (and stop buying so many damn new clothes when I have too many as it is).

So here you have my version of the cover girl shirt and the flare skirt, Patriotic style (and Memphian style).

And my little holiday card that I made for my blog readers:
23  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / Lois Lane Dress/Top on: July 02, 2006 01:33:08 PM
I'm totally in love with Lois's Pulitzer dress in Superman Returns, and I'd love to make a blouse of the same style, but I'm still in search of a pattern to use. I'm not very familiar with places to find patterns (besides Simplicity and McCalls), so any other pattern sources would be excellent.


Has anyone seen any patterns with a similar design?
24  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Flavored Iced Tea recipe (EDIT 7/2/06) on: June 30, 2006 05:30:37 PM
While dining at Davis Kidd's bistro, I got the inspiration to use flavored Bigelow teas for iced tea.
I love cinnamon, so my first venture has been Cinnamon Stick tea, but there are tons of other flavors that I think would be awesome tea flavors.

 (EDIT: Pitcher should be 2-quarts)

Here are some other flavors I noted:
raspberry royale
french vanilla
vanilla hazelnut
vanilla almond
vanilla caramel
cherry vanilla
orange & spice
perfect peach
cranberry apple
pomegranate pizzazz
blueberry harvest (must try that one for my dad; huge blueberry fan, that one Cheesy)
25  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Disco-Ball lattice-back top on: June 28, 2006 11:32:29 PM
I got this gorgeous silver slip dress for a semi-ball back in 2000. I wore it again for my senior pictures photoshoot. Here's a before-shot:

It got WAY too short as I continued to grow after high school (craziness), so I decided to make it a sexy top I can wear out again without worrying that I'll catch a draft.
I ripped out the back seam and took it in on each side and added pieces of a satin cord into the seams and laced it up with the remaining satin cord.


Right now, I can't take it off  Cheesy
26  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Superman Halter Top on: June 20, 2006 02:11:33 AM
Today I completed my very first T-shirt surgery, and I'm still freaking out that I actually did it. A year ago, I could only dream about making such lovelies out of my scraps. Now I have the sewing machine to do it!

My boyfriend is a Superman fanatic, and next Tuesday, we're going downtown to see the first showing on the big-big screen. When going downtown, I like to dress up, and I loved the idea of surprising him with devotion to his obsession (combined with fun glittery silverness of course).

My friend Bethi had a Superman shirt that was shrunken and yellowing in spots, so I cut up the front panel, added it to a tube top, stuck on a ribbon neck strap, added sequins to the borders of the panel, and used an old too-short disco-ball dress for the top and bottom. End product:

(forgive my boyfriend and his film studenty angled shots)
