11  a shirt, yay! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by piratestooge on: January 17, 2006 05:02:57 PM
Alright, so I definitely did not get to do as much sewing over the break as I wanted to. But anyways, one thing I did do was cut up and re-sew this one shirt. It was basically a collared shirt that I had to buy to wear to this job that I quit. So I decided that since I don't really like collared shirts, I'd change the neck. I wanted it to be kind of loose looking, kind of like a scarf or something. I don't know if I like it a whole lot though, but it was a fun experiment. So here's some pictures, whoo hoo!

Closer look at the neck:


oh yes, and I forgot about this, but I also turned a pair of black pants that were ruined from the knee down into a skirt

12  just one simple shirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by piratestooge on: December 05, 2005 05:07:30 PM
well, I don't know if anyone remembers me. I used to post quite a bit more often, but apparently college (while way more fun) is a lot harder and sucks up more time. So I haven't really been able to sew a thing lately. However, I recently had some spare time, and to re-test the sewing waters, I cut up a free t-shirt because you never feel bad about ruining free things. It was rather large, rather yellow. I made it smaller and did black sleeves instead because I thought it would look just lovely

Back (same problem):

So I haven't really made anthing too terribly interesting, but I figured it's been months and months since I posted so why not?
Anyway, I had this t-shirt since freshman year and since then i've gotten very bored of it so I decided to change it a bit for a new freshman year (college!). And I saved the design because GIR is cute and I'm sure I can use him for another art project. I forgot to take a before picture but imagine this without the blue parts though because that's part of what i added in:

So then I took some fabric and then some other fabric and made it into this:

And here is what it looks like on a person who is wearing their ugly pajama pants as well!:

And here's a more detailed view of the lovely fabrics:

And then there's another shirt, which is equally dull and started out as one of those plain ones you but from the craft store to do crafts with. So I cut it a bit and added some little star sequiny things and added the wings on the back because I saw a tattoo like that and it was really cool but not permanent cool and one tattoo is enough for me as it is. So anyway this is my new shirt (PS I got a haircut in between taking pictures of these in case anyone cared):

Here's so you can see my wings!:


and thats the end of that

that guitar strap is way cool, and the t-shirts are awesome!
thanks very much, i think the guitar strap s my favorite thing to come out of that fabric, although it did make great lining for this purse

it kinda isn't as fresh or anything but it's still good enough to wear again

thanks for the super idea, i like how everyone did a music related thing so i decided to jump on the bandwagon, however, i screwed mine up a bit and forgot that irons get pointy on one end and so some of it didn't really get covered but i like it anyway

I don't know if anyone will be able to find this pattern because I found it in the garage from way back when my stepmom used to sew and was conveniently about my size. The whole pattern only requires you to cut three pieces of fabric and there's just a little tiny bit of sewing. For all you people who are brilliant at this, you could probably make it in about ten minutes. Here's a picture, sorry it's blurry, my digital camera is slow at taking pictures and has no stand, my hands are always jittery.

I like the way the dress fits and everything, I'm just not so sure i like the fabric. The fabric also came from garage storage from my stepmoms sewing days, it seems kinda old lady like though

i added the panels to the sides and the top, so the back kinda just has a white rectangle. Taking pictures in a mirror always messes with lighting so I have a picture of it on the hanger as well, the fabrics all plaid like and cool:

and the original shirt I got at Ross my most favorite store in the world for only five whole dollars. I'm quite glad other people who aren't me like it, I was having difficulties at times putting it together

20  Vogue V7879 (lots of sewing lately) in Sewing Pattern Reviews by piratestooge on: August 22, 2004 03:53:46 PM
This is so my new favorite skirt. In person it looks a bit more purply colored and dark but oh well. The pattern was easy to follow as this was a very simple skirt to make and it fits really well. Actually something weird happened at first when I made it, the facing was smaller than the skirt but i was able to fix it so oh well. The front and back look pretty much the same but i'm posting pictures of both anyway.
