reconstruction

i have no before and after of this, but it's pretty simple. the top of the skirt was a pair of jeans that my daughter grew too tall for. they still fit around the waist and had cute booty pockets, soooo i took some of hubby's-or maybe some of my sons' (i don't remember) jeans with holes and cut flares .
cute booty
i sewed it inside-out to leave the seams exposed for a fun frayed look. new skirt from worn-out, out-grown clothes. woohoo :D

summer dress i found this dress at thrift for my daughter for something like 60cents. the dress is well, rancid. but the fabric is rad.
hideous with great potential:
wrong
detail
sweetness:
sweet dress
i took off the sleeves and ruffles... wow, that makes it sound super simple. it was actually a pain in the butt. do i at least get a pat on the back for recognizing it's inner dress? :D

do you remember grease2? remember the song reproduction? read the title of this post again... there ya go. singing it now? i just didn't want to be the only one with this stuck in their head all day long :D
yes, i am completely evil.

Very creative, I like both! I used to do some reconstuction when I was a teen and in need of more clothes...

Great job, both items look fabulous!

By the way, the only song I ever think of from Grease 2 is Cool Rider. Nothing else stuck but that one sure did!! :o)

I love the jean skirt! Great idea! Too bad I can't get my tomboy to wear a skirt, lol.

That skirt is WAY cute and clever! But Wowee Kazowee Woman! Just how much time did you spend with your seam ripper to reclaim the adorable dress? I bow down to your superior patience!
