This is regarding the performance more than the sewing, but when you're picking out fabric, keep in mind that white is difficult to light.  If it's a big stage then I assume there's pretty complex lighting?  White fabric will take on the color of the lights or reflect them.  I don't know a whole lot about it but you might want to talk to your lighting people about colors and patterns.

Oh gosh, I want one!  I think I understand how to do it, but if you have time for a bit of a tutorial or any pictures of the process, that would be fabulous.  I think I have a skirt I could do that to...

Anyway, great job!

Usually when people recon T-shirts they end up looking punk or edgy or whatever, but this is a new take on reconstruction and I love it.  It has almost a fantasy feel... like if the elves in Lord of the Rings had T-shirts, they would wear something like this.

This is so adorable.  The ruffles are a nice touch.
Also, not too hipster at all.  Wink
15  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / button bracelet made entirely from stuff around my house on: August 07, 2007 09:38:59 PM
Inspired by the crazy button-ness in the most recent issue of Adorn, I randomly decided to make a button bracelet today.  I have a lot of buttons that my grandmother's friend gave me a few years ago, so I think this is a nice little thing by which I can remember her. 

I had the fishing line and the clasp just lying around, and had bought the beads for another project but ended up not needing them.  I just threaded and re-threaded the buttons until the bracelet had roughly the shape I wanted.  It's not as flat as I'd like it to be, but otherwise I'm quite happy with the results.

"Action" shot (I'm as white as the buttons!)

I'm sure this has all been said before, but I just wanted to add that the craftsmanship on the dress looks amazing and your whole outfit is perfect.  (and your hair!!  zomg!!) 

My graduation dress was from the Gap and it was about a thousand degrees in the auditorium, so I was sweating and about ready to pass out.  You are going to have absolutely radiant graduation pictures for posterity!

In Bangor there's a place up the hill from the library called One Lupine Fiber Arts that I've been meaning to check out.  Also somewhere in Orono is Fiberphilia, which is supposed to be epic.  Unfortunately I don't think there's much for crafty stores outside of that.  I would love to have a paper crafts store that's not dedicated solely to scrapbooking.

Has anyone been going to the artisan's markets in downtown Bangor on Thursdays?  I think there's one left next week (August 2).

Cute!  I'm going to have to try this.  Did you make the strap out of sweatpants material also?  Does it stretch out if the bag's heavy?

That looks really cool!  The buttons are a nice touch.

What did you use for lining?  I recently made a T-shirt bag but lined it with another T-shirt, and so it is very floppy.  Should have thought of that...
Plastic bags only cost a store a penny to produce, but comparatively cost the public 17 cents apiece to deal with as waste because often they can't be recycled.  This is an AMAZING way to deal with the waste we all have.  Trash to treasure, indeed. =)
