21  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Myssi's take on Pants -> Skirt on: December 09, 2006 05:37:07 PM
Whoopsie I guess, I made this...well....I started in August I think....and lets see...homecoming was in September...So I finished it about the end of September {Due to homework, boyfriend, and complete lack of motivation} Anyways, it was a pair of gorgeous plaid pants that my sisters ex boyfriend's older sister had given me. The only problem was that they were too big. So I took of the waist band and came up with this, {Please excuse the mess! Embarrassed}:

{Before, on my bed}



I shorted up the waist band to fit me and made a new button hole. I also used silk-like black material I had leftover from a project like...3 years ago and torquoise thread just because it was a pretty color. I'm also working on a petticoat to wear underneath to make it puff up. Cheesy

Thanks for looking!

P.S. theres some action shots in this post->>https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=149768.0

23  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Grandma's Old Jean Jacket on: August 01, 2006 08:38:38 PM
Okay so my grandmother gave me this jean jacket, never worn, and told me to make it into something for myself because it didn't fit her. The only problem I had with it was 1. it was boring 2. the brand name was all over it and 3. the sleeves were too short.

Number three was fixed first. I took off the sleeves and sew in a piece of black fabric.
Number one was fixed by adding little touches to make it mine{i.e. An old sugar sack safety pinned to the back, buttons, running a chord down the sleeves for a corset effect, etc.}
Number two can't be fixed but I don't care anymore.
