Posts Tagged ‘vest’

so, i’m in fashion school now. this week a teacher asked if any of us were bloggers. i tentatively raised my hand. & decided that i really should resurrect this thing. as much time as i don’t have. i’m not sure yet if i’ll continue with my old regular segments or do more spontaneous posts. i kind of love the idea of spontaneous posts. what do you think? speaking of, thank you so much for still checking my blog! my stats page was nowhere near as sad as i expected it to be.

here are some things i’ve sewn lately:

my jeans from last year got unbearably baggy. & i really wanted some kind of sleeveless jean jacket/vest. so i reconstructed it. i LOVE how it turned out. it was nice & easy to make too. i used a pre-made burda pattern for this one. it was one of those super rare occasions. the only other things i’ve ever used pre-made patterns for are an over-bust corset, a pair of pants, a button-up shirt, a hoop skirt & one other vest like this.

this is what it looked like before:

it had been very comfortable, for a while.

another reconstruction. reconstructed from a wednesday 13 t-shirt attempted reconstruction to a faux motorcycle jacket. that poor ruined shirt had been sitting on my to-fix pile for, what? nearly two years? then i saw the murderdolls two weeks ago (in germany! it was ah-maaah-ziiiiiing) & in that murderdolls/wednesday’s-bands-in-general mood i thought the time was ripe to save it.
this hoodie was very much inspired by angrygirl gear. i love her work. i made this a little roomier than usual (& with nice warm fleece), because i wanted just one comfortable non-fitted hoodie.

& that’s almost all i’ve sewn since that last dress. it’s ridiculous. otherwise i’ve only resized a few things & made a totally plain pink racerback top. hopefully i’ll get to do more this weekend.

thanks, as always, for looking!

p.s. for those of you who may have noticed & were wondering about my now empty shops, yes, they’ll absolutely be restocked. soonish. & customs are back open! (help a poor student out here)

this week, all black & silver & gothy things! :] all from etsy. it was very hard to find good things that fit that criteria between all the badly unoriginal overdone crap that passes for goth nowadays. but those that are done right… goddamn can they be good.

enjoy!

click on those links! heart them! buy them! & make people happy!
remember that i can see exactly which links you clicked or didn’t on my lovely wordpress dashboard!

& i tried other expressions than my default cute half smile! :p made this little photoshoot a lot more fun.

the vest is my favourite. it was really tedious to make. especially all those pockets. but it was totally worth it :] i love the crazy polka dot & stripe-ness. and the pockets! it has five! i’m so jealous of whoever buys this. i named it corey. why?! well, when i was making this i mostly listened to stone sour & slipknot & thought about how smart & awesome corey is & how much i loved him. then i had the inevitable thought: “i’ll name this vest corey!” so i did :p

the skirt is a lot simpler, but still awesome. and it actually has neatly finished edges! see, i can actually do those :p i just don’t like neatly finished edges as much. this one is called franny. i couldn’t really think of a name for this one, so i just took the one from one of my oldest friends. & it actually fits!

& i did NOT make the blouse, it’s just from american eagle.

i actually made this quite a few months ago, but didn’t take proper pictures or put it for sale ’til now. the only reason i reconstructed this to sell was that my dad accidentally ordered two of those shirts, so i had one that i didn’t really do anything with. i think i’ll reconstruct more t-shirts to sell though, despite the many others who sell reconstructed t-shirts. but i haven’t come across any others in holland yet, so i might have a monopoly here :]

anyway, that’s all i have for you today. i rhymed! it’s not a lot, i know, but there’s more on the way! really. i still don’t know what to do with that swing dress, but i started with a polka dot pinafore yesterday & all i need to add are buttons & pockets. i hope mom can give me money for buttons… or hopefully i’ll sell something tonight :p because i’m broke! & it sucks.

oh! speaking of selling, i also have a shop on etsy now. (thanks mom!) it really was for the best.
