1  granny nightie --> cute summery shirt. =D in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by ohthe_drama on: July 02, 2007 03:57:05 PM
i haven't sewn anything worth posting here for so long (mostly just shirt resizings), but i got this nightie from my step-grandma who recently passed away... she left me tons of sewing stuff and lots of things to recon. i was in love with the color and detail of this nightie, and knew it could be amazing if it was altered a bit.

before... as you can see it looks more like a tent than clothes at this point.

and after! please excuse my strawberry shirt underneath. =]

from the side.

and the detail... you might be able to tell from this picture that i made the bust a little too tight, but no one will really notice i hope. =/

thanks so much for looking, please let me know what you think!

2  Re: Show off your hair! And questions about hair styles! in Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions by ohthe_drama on: December 12, 2006 09:03:51 PM
sorry if this has already been asked... i didn't want to sift through all 340-some pages (yikes!) of this thread. i did a search, but couldn't come up with anything.

aaaaannnyways, right now my hair shape is kind of like this:

except a little shorter. that's about how long the layered side-bang thing is.

i want it to look more like ths:

of course not that extreme... just the bang part, where it goes over her face like that. but my hair is extremely stubborn... and i can't very well just flip my side bang thing over to make it go in my face... if you can actually understand what i'm saying.

i assume i have to go to a hairdresser and get it cut specially or something, but i was wondering if there's any way i can avoid cutting my hair (i'm growing it out for locks of love) and make it look less dull with a face-covering bang. sorry for being uberly confusing. Cheesy

OH, and, just so that you don't get mad for me only asking a question...

if you're looking for good pictures of hairstyles, hairfiles on photobucket (http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v480/hairfiles/) is the most amazing place EVER.

thanks for bearing with me. :]]]

3  an extremely non-emo girl with some very emo shoes... in Shoes: Completed Projects by ohthe_drama on: October 19, 2006 09:55:14 PM
Well I got some plain white keds (you know the kind i'm talking about...) from a thrift store to try and do something cool to them. I didn't really know what I wanted to do for a while... and then I decided to make some scribble shoes!

I cut the lace part and tongue off, painted them black, and wrote and drew all over them. I wore them to (Middle) school the other day, and got a lot of "why did you paint your shoes?" but mostly just "those are so cool!" so I decided to share them.

But one problem... it rained when i wore them, so the bottom of my jeans got wet and made the white paint smudge a teeny bit. Would just a weather-proofer work to prevent further smudging, or should I try something else?

4  why hello there, kitty! [[overflowing pics]] in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by ohthe_drama on: October 19, 2006 09:49:00 PM
I made my first Hello Kitty clothing item, hence the title, and I'm overly excited about it...



It's just plain yellow because I made the front from this AMAZING cape I found at Value Village. I think it was supposed to be a Halloween costume for a little kid... I'm talking LITTLE kid. The cape (which came with a built-in hello kitty mask) was uber small for me.

ALSO made a skirt, yipee!



From an old t-shirt. Thrift stores are amazing. Took me forever to get it to fit right (I didn't take any measurements, hehe).

Comments are appreciated... let me know if I'm doing anything wrong, these are my second and third recons.

5  One recon down... about a thousand to go. in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by ohthe_drama on: October 15, 2006 02:38:58 PM
Well, it's my very first recon! In fact, it's my first sewing project since I made a potholder in 6th grade home ec. I originally started off using this tutorial: http://static.flickr.com/48/141205078_64c508281e_b.jpg but ended up making a lot of adjustments because of my stupid mistakes and lack of fabric.

You want a picture, you say? Well, here it is. I can't post pictures yet because of my n00bish state, but you can visit the link.

The black tank top is seperate, but the black waistband at the bottom is part of the shirt. It started out as a humungous shirt from a thrift store, and the waistband came from one of those yucky too-wide, too-short shirts my mom got for me in San Fran. Please let me know what you think! I'm kind of scared to wear it to school (apparently being "cool" in Middle School means looking like everyone else) so your input is greatly appreciated. Yes, I'm in middle school. Like you couldn't tell from the non-boobs in the picture. ^_^
