1  Nighties are cuter than sweatshirts and pants. in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Sunray on: April 03, 2008 01:13:53 PM
This is a fact my boyfriend hasn't let me forget :p

So after seeing ladykat's awesome little nightie, I had to make my own!
But I didn't have a giant t-shirt, nor the fundage to purchase one.
What I *do* have is a very, very LARGE collection of fabric remnants that I impulse buy with no actual reason to own 'em, and I want to use up as much fabric as possible before summer, so I figured I could get a few things accomplished at once, and tried my hand and nightie-makin':

Simple black I-don't-know-just-how-to-describe-it-non-t-shirt-material that's super stretchy and light, with a comfy thicker-type-cotton-y gray band around the top.  There's a purple and black heart button in the center of the top band for interest, and the straps are super-soft braided purple yarn.

Yay the back! It was a little too tight in the chestal area before, and I think this way is more visually appealing.

There's the detail.

I'm going to visit my boyfriend tomorrow and take this along, think he'll like it?
Please comment/ask questions/criticize as you so please

2  The Pink Spiders!! [Now, with added pinstripes and extra-girly-goodness!] in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Sunray on: March 21, 2008 02:09:11 PM
..and I don't even usually DO girly.

But, being girly every now and then is no crime.
Especially when you're, y'know, a girl.

Anyway, pictures, PLEASE excuse mirror smudges and stupid faces?

So, I saw the Pink Spiders, and this particular t-shirt design was by FAR my favorite for no reason at all, but he's all, "I only have XL in that one!" [apparently it was quite a few others' favorites as well] and I'm all "Psssssssssh ok" and he's all "I like your style!" and sold me this huge t-shirt:

Yeah, I know, huge.

Anyway, totally different story that'll be relevant in a line or 3, this girl in my building gave me like 5 bags worth of old clothing to chop up as I so desired..and one of these things happened to have pink sleeves.  Now, I haven't worn pink since I was 5, but I wanted to add pink to it. And after being inspired by this by TrickyMcVomit....well, see for yourself:

I swear those sleeves are a pale pink, but not as pale as in these pictures.  Just trust me.

And the back is some kind of super dark blue-y black fabric with purple and blue pinstripes that doesn't match at all, but somehow manages to look alright regardless:

Now, you can't see in these pictures I don't think, but there are hot pink buttons [my mom wins at Christmas, I kept raping shirts for their buttons so she bought me huge packs of multi-colored buttons, that happened to come with the previously offensive pink color].
On the back, there is one button on each part of the black t-shirt scrap.
On the front, there is one button practically in each armpit.
My roommate likes them though.


So thank you for looking and stuffs.
Comments/questions/concerns/complaints please and thank you~?

3  Thrice off-the-shoulder halter hoodie...thing! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Sunray on: March 06, 2008 07:41:26 PM
Practical? Not at all.
Do I care? See above answer!

So usually I don't buy shirts of bands I've never seen live, buuut.
This one was.
A dollar.
So of course I had to, right?

But the problem was.
A) I have too many shirts that are dark, and black, and dark black and gothy.
B) For some reason, t-shirts as they are make me look 16, and though 18 isn't much different, I've finally made it past being called "jailbait" so the last thing I want to do is go BACK IN TIME.

And I wanted to try out this design, which I thunk up in my head one day.

There are little buttons on the kanga pocket's upper corners btw.

My solution to EVERYTHING..if it's too short/small/tight, just lace it up!

First lined hood evar. Its so warm and soft and cozy comfy awesomeee.

The back.

The stripy awesome stuff was discounted at JoAnne's, and I had a giftcard, so I really did only spend a dollar on this thing.
And I don't know why people say stretchy knit is soooo hard to work with, it cooperated with me? Maybe I lucked out.

Thanks for looking!

4  I collaged my BIKE [TOO MANY PICTURES] in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Sunray on: January 10, 2008 09:00:27 PM
It tells a story.

"The Death And Destruction Of Hardcore."


The beginning:

The turmoil:








The Aftermath:

The Bottom [not actually part of the story, just...there.]:

There are a lot of very important scenes and specific pictures, but the bike is already loaded into my car, ready to make the trip from the most western side of Colorado to the most eastern side of Missouri [it's a hellish drive, I swearz].

PLEASE tell me what you think?

It's reaaaally very hard dying your hair in the dorms and washing it out in the kitchen sink, but, I did!

I was going to do it white, but, maybe next semester hahaha.

6  Strappy...leopard-y...pirate-y? [Cue the camwhore!] [Shirt -> Much Cooler] in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Sunray on: November 06, 2007 09:29:52 PM
Alright, so.
Phathom is a pretty cool band, and I bought a t-shirt of theirs...larger than myself, of course.
On to the shirt! It's a bit different than my standard.
And remember, I currently have no machine, so everything was handsewn, including the sides. Bleh, huh?

So, side one. It's flowy, loose-fit, nice straps to accent the words...but definitely not my usual style. What am I up to?

Side 2.
Didn't see THAT coming, did you?
...well, lets just say you didn't.

From the front, you ask?
Time for stupid faces!

What a diva.  Just the littlest bit of leopard for embellishment, and a nice tie-in for the grey in the shirt's graphic.

Speaking of the shirt's graphic...

And now, drumroll please...
Yes, I'm sorry, my face looks silly, but I couldn't help myself.

I'm sorry these are all cell phone pictures, my camera COMPLETELY broke so I'll be waiting a few months...my parents got me one for my birthday/Christmas, though, I already know

Please please please.
Or else..
*le gasp*
So, go for it!

7  LIME GREEN, FUZZY hoodie. Hand-stitched =O in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Sunray on: October 10, 2007 10:51:07 PM
Hey Completed Projects: General forum!
Usually I recon things, but I found this amazing fuzzy lime green stripey fabric in the remnant bin at Walmart [I hate Wally World, but, sometimes you just gotta deal with it] for $5, and bought it, knowing I had no machine and having not a clue about what I'd do with it.
I was thinking, you know, recon a shirt, make fuzzy sleeves and accents or something. Or maybe make fuzzy hotpants, for a rave or something like that.
And all of the sudden I thought - hoodie? Oh hell yes.

So, now that we've gotten past the wordy introduction and backstory, I present to you my first ever made-from-scratch article of clothing!

I'm probably going to put pockets on the front. And I've been on-and-off debating sleeves, probably won't make them, or if I do, maybe like..detachable ones or something.

Oh, and, I have enough fabric left over for a pair of hotpants after all =P

8  Big D and the Kids Table - signed shirt, recon'd in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Sunray on: September 25, 2007 10:17:14 AM
Yep, that's right.
I have a shirt, a Big D and the Kids Table shirt.
And when I bought it, the entire band *happened* to be there, signing stuff.
So they signed my ginormous shirt.
But I wanted to wear my shirt, signatures or otherwise.
So what'd I do?

Hack away of course!
Sorry they're sideways ><

The shirt doesn't usually wrinkle, I just don't understand the concept of standing straight and taking pictures of myself =P

The sides of the shirt are machine-stitched, all the black pieces are done by hand.
As usual, I didn't measure or draw lines or anything, I just kind of..guessed how much to lop off of each side and the bottom. Lucky for me, I guessed correctly! Yay!

Close-up of shoulder and hood. I always thought white with black looked cooler than black with white, just a bit.

Thanks so much for looking!
Please please please leave comments/questions/complaints/concerns/all of the above?
I'm not above begging.
Haha, joke.

9  Mock-underbust tank: Best. Recon. Ever. in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Sunray on: May 11, 2007 11:15:12 AM
Ok, so, those of you who are used to seeing me, it's been basically rip-and-tie reconning with sucky hand-sewing.
But this time.
I actually managed to make nice with my machine.
The result?
My personal best recon to date:

That spot on my boob?
Yeah, don't worry, that's just a mirror-smudge, it's not some weird shirt stain.
And that big white blob?
It's a small-fishnet star.

A close-up of THE MOST BEAUTIFUL seam I have ever produced.

The back, which looks funny because you have to sit funny to take a picture of your back.

And...one more picture because I'm really very proud of myself.  I wore this shirt to school today and people were all "WOW, you made that??" and I'm like "yep, I don't TOTALLY suck anymore, just for the most part "

What went into this shirt?
-one extremely large black t-shirt [had to chop 5 inches off of each side]
-two panels from the shorts part of a skort
-a fishnet armwarmer
-the belly of another shirt [as a back patch]
-two converse shoe strings

Comments pleaaaase and thank you, and thanks very much for looking!
