11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: 3XL tee shirt to size 6 dress. on: April 07, 2009 10:03:45 AM
Amazing...I just bought 7 3XL tshirts...so I can't wait for a tutorial.

I have so many ideas for these!  I just hope I don't mess them all up.

Wow. =]
I hope I can make one soon. I would love to see them when you are done.
The internet at my house is cut off so I can only use public internet for now. Embarrassed

Love the style!! Do you have a tute??

Not yet. I will eventually post one. I am trying to get my bf to give up one of his Monty Python shirts( he has 2 of the same one and never wears either). I have to get another huge shirt first. He wears an XL but I think I might be able to work with it.

there is one where u can make it with duct tape, which is really inexpensive.  or maybe u could get a craft fairy to send you some  Wink

yeah, that's the one I want to make but duct tape has gotten to like $7 a roll now. It is rediculous. And all I have left to my name is $56...I lost my job a while back and haven't been able to get another one.

That is downright ADORABLE!
how exactly did you make the sleeves? With all my crafting prowess (read: none) I can't figure it out.

Well, the dress was tank top style so then I just cut out rectangles the length of the straps plus a bit and sewed them onto the bands around the shoulders and bust area.

BTW, I am soooo happy with this now. If I could market these I would. I went to an All Shall Perish show the other night and they were selling "girl shirts". Which were basically the $15 tee shirts made into halter tops with lace and they wanted $45 a piece for them...I think not...I can MAKE THAT. Grin

I had to register just to tell you how awesome this is! Cheesy
I love every bit of it!
Now, off to see what else you've been up to lately. Cheesy

Thank you sooo much.  Grin I haven't posted much of my recent work. I have dial-up so it takes forever to post items.

Oh man, that's brilliant.

You should give a tutorial!  Wink

agreed! it's an awesome dress!  Cheesy

If I do another one I will definitely post a tutorial. But it might be a while. I have no money to buy another shirt.Maybe I can steal one of my boyfriend's old shirts.
It was pretty simple but figuring out a tute might take a while since I just sort of winged it. Smiley

Thanks again for all of the nice comments. This has given me a lot more confidence in my sewing.

I also posted a Transformers halter type dress a while ago.

I love the dress, it looks great on you.  I haven't gotten brave enough to work on clothes yet.

But my reason for replying was to ask, have you looked over craftster for the tutorial to make your own dress form?  they are here, it would require some work, but it should be faster than adopting  Wink  If I knew where it was I would get you the link, but not sure where its at.......?

I have found a few but since I have been jobless for almost 8 months now and I am moving in with my boyfriend this summer, all of my money is gone so I can't afford to make one. Hopefully  I will get some graduation money. Wink

Thanks for all of the awesome comments. Grin I think this is the most responses I have ever gotten in one day.

I have NEVER seen a shirt that HUGE!! lol Cheesy

great job with the recon! do you plan on doing anything with all that extra fabric?

I basically used all of the fabric. I didn't really know what I was doing since I didn't have a pattern or dress form. I made it how I thought I should and then took it in a lot. So I ended up with a lot of funny shaped pieces and I used what was left for the sleeves. Next time I think I will by a 4XL.

I have several things to say about this..
numba 1: it's super cute.
numba 2: you're super cute.
numero 3: I LOVE how TMZ is on in the background (that's gotta be one of my bf's favorite shows hahaha)
numbrero 4: your tattoo is pretteh

Thanks. I just got the tattoo in February. It was my first and I LOVE it. =]

TMZ is my mom's favorite show too. I interrupted her to take pictures for me.  Cheesy

Well, I was bored so I set out for a task...and I found it in this $3 tee shirt.
It took a lot of work but I am pretty pleased with how it came out. This shirt only reminds me of how much I need a dress form....but I can only hope that I will find one someday and adopt it.  Grin



17  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: what do you wish people told you before you became a vegetarian/vegan on: March 16, 2009 02:29:40 PM

Has anyone had that experience with former veg pals?  .

Yes. My best friend and I both became vegetarians last year around the same time. We actually did it without telling each other. haha...
Well, over Christmas break she gave in to chicken and has converted back to being an omni. She thought I would be mad but I wasn't. I will admit that I sometimes forget she does eat meat now and slip up and say how gross it is or how she should try this new vegetarian place(which she doesn't mind as much).
But I still love her the same. Grin

wow...those awesome. I reall like the second two.
Especially the last one. I am always looking for new ways to reconstruct my band tees as the smallest death metal shirt I have ever found was a Youth LG. Usually I have to buy the Men's small. BTW, I am a juniors XS.lol

I love when I wear my recons to shows and everyone is like "WOAH!"  Grin

There is always red beans and rice.
My favorite breakfast is a smoothie or wheat bread with peanut butter and banana slices on top. yummy

Tofu is fairly inexpensive in the states...And you can make a few meals with it.

You can use fo burger crumbles in any meal you use real beef.

I make a yummy shepard's pie for my british boyfriend with for meat. He loves it and it almost tastes like the real thing.

There are always salads. Spinach and grapefruit salads have TONS of vitamins.

Make take-away at home.

MY local chinese rest. uses spinach and silken tofu with some salt and pepper to make an AMAZING soup.

I agree with the pajama thing.
My bf thinks I am dead sexy in pajama/yoga pants or shorts with a little tank top. I actually feel pretty attractive too...
