191  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: snap-off pants = dress on: May 22, 2004 07:12:38 AM
It wasn't that hard to do. 

First, I cut off the legs where I wanted the skirt to be.  Then hemed the crotch part on both front and back, and hemed the edges.

I looked at the legs I cut off, wondering what I could do w/ them.  I took them unsnaped them, then turned them around and snaped them together, so it was a tube.  And voila a tube top, just some hemming around the edge and thats it. 

It took me about two days to make, b/w two small kids and hand sewing it together.

I don't think it looks that bad.  The pants itself was stretched out at the waistband (because I wore them while I was pregnant) so I adjusted them and now they just sit on my hips.  I was thinking about adding a small belt or something, if it gets to be too big.  but otherwise I really like it.  Smiley

That's pretty cool. What does the bottom of the skirt look like close up? I love the idea of the bottom!   Smiley

I took this pair of athletic snap-off pants I had made them into a 2-piece dress, a tube top and skirt.   Just so you know I added no other materials, just the pants.  Here's the link. 
You should be able to find ur way to the pic.  Hope everyone likes it. Smiley
194  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Need help deciding w/ shirt on: May 21, 2004 09:18:37 AM
Can anyone tell me what I can do w/ this soundgarden shirt I have.  It's an XL, so its big.  But I can't think of what to do with it, since it has such a big graphic on the front, and all that print on the back.  It has a big multi-colored rectangle with the bands name on the front, and their tour from '94 the the back.  anyway, any thoughts or whatever would be appreciated.  Thanks.

I used sugar n cream.  I think its really a crochet yarn, but i'm not sure.  i think i made the choker a bit too wide, but i kinda like it that way.  It's rests a bit on the bottom of my neck, which dosen't look that bad at all.  Grin

198  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / my 1st attempt at reconstruction shirt on: May 18, 2004 07:56:18 AM

Here's my first reconstructed shirt.  Click on the reconstructed shirt link.  I made it one shoulder and cut off the bottom hem  to make a neck scarf, plus cut the hem off the one sleeve to make hair ties, but you can't see them in the pic.  Hope it looks okay. Smiley

Here's my version of the kitty cell cozy.  I attached a handle small enough so you can put it on your wrist.  I made it to look like my mom's cat.  Here's the link.  http://community.webshots.com/user/mommalion082

So quick and easy!! Smiley
200  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Cleo Halter top at Knitty on: May 11, 2004 06:53:16 AM
I'm planning on making the halter top Cleo from Knitty.  Just wanted to ask if anyone did this and how it went, or if you had any problems.  I bought the needle I need but what yarn could I sub?  Thanks. Smiley
