six days of refashioned clothes [15 May 2011|05:03pm]

I challenged myself to Me-modified-May: wear something at least three times a week that I had either made or modified from its state when I purchased it. Here's one outfit:

Tips? [25 Oct 2008|04:00pm]

I saw on a post further down that someone had hand-painted some Doc Martens... I have a real soft leather pair of black dressy ones (Docs) I really want to re-fashion, if anyone has any ideas on how to do so and what kind of paint to use?

Also, I have a plain black zip-up hoodie I am wearing on a long bus ride home, and I want to try and make it look as punk-rock/goth as possible before I leave in 3 days, any ideas??? Any at all! I really want to re-fashion this hoodie to go with my New Rock flame boots! :)

Cloaked in a classic [06 Oct 2008|05:12pm]


Stylish Hollywood starlets have turned back the clock for their latest fashion inspiration. The lovely ladies, like Leighton Meester, above, are channeling 9th century B.C. with these modern takes on the toga.


"The Hills" star Lauren Conrad attends the launch of the Fall 2008 Lauren Conrad Collection on Sept. 10 in a one-strap version of the Roman classic.

Supermodel Claudia Schieffer vogues before the Venice Film Festival's "Burn After Reading" screening in a stunning Alberta Ferretti gown.

Lacroix gone back to his roots [06 Oct 2008|05:09pm]

presented his bullfighters and traditional Arles costumes inspired collection at Wednesday.

When times are hard, the best medicine is to face the crisis with guts and your true personality,” the designer said. “I am a gypsy at heart and I have gone back to my roots.”

This means his collection was full of matador capes and skinny, cropped pants, embroidered with gold; and peasant-style dresses, with decorative, embellished corsets and ruffles and bows around mid-thigh.

Hey, I dunno if this has been posted yet [I can only be on for a second, busy day!] but, Threadless is having a big sale right now where 146 of their shirts are only $9 and the rest are $12 each, and thats pretty good if y'ask me. =D
Plus, these shirts are always the most fun to change up to a style you'd prefer. xP
So, for those of you that don't know it, its
and the sale's going until I want to say another week or so?
Give it a few days from now, just in case so you don't wait too long!

my DIY fashion line! [04 Jun 2008|01:30am]

Hey, I'm Cheyenne. The other week I got to show a DIY fashion line for a fashion show at my university!

I made everything except socks, leggings, angel wings, and also the green jacket. I painted but did not make the black pants. My friend made the yellow bee hood that the 90s club kid model is wearing. Tell me what you think!

Hi there, does anyone have any tips or hints on how to make a tutu? I'm making one for a party in a couple of weeks and I want it to be really really puffy and I'm not quite sure how to achieve this and if anyone has any tutorials they could point me too that would also be great, thanks!

IDEAS NEEDED REAL BAD! [27 Apr 2008|03:54pm]

i bought this ugly prom/bridesmaid dress from my church thriftshop thinking i could do something with it...well i havent thought of anything yet.

it's a size 4, has a bodice top, and i'm a size 2 so i could resize the ugly thing. its polyester and silk.

but i want to make it not so ugly so i can actually wear it not have this thing sitting around haunting me.

so please take a look under the cut and ANY commentaries and IDEAS are welcome, my fashion creative side of the brain must have taken a vacation or something.

Fishing for ideas... [26 Apr 2008|09:43pm]

So, I guess you can say I'm semi-new to this community. Long-time lurker and kind-of novice to the world of clothing reconstruction. I've done a few projects, and I'm itching to start another. So... fishing for ideas for re-constructing a T-shirt!

The shirt in question...Collapse )

Relining a coat [17 Nov 2007|08:39pm]

I got this coat for one euro secondhand (naturally) during the summer.

It's the best coat I've ever owned, but the lining is torn in several places. I'm after getting a really big piece of fabric that would make nice lining, so I think I might re-line it.
Has anyone ever done this? Any tips? I reckon if I'm just really careful taking the old stuff out, and then use it as the pattern when I'm cutting the new fabric, it shouldn't be too hard.

Properly fraying the knees on jeans [16 Oct 2007|11:01pm]

Hi, I'm brand-new here. I was going to post my question to t_shirt_surgery but thought better of it and looked for a more relevant community. Hope you folks can help!

For Halloween, my SO and I are going to be Wayne and Garth from Wayne's World. He went and bought jeans from Target and slit the knees. Of course, if he'd have asked me first, I'd have said go to the Salvation Army or ask around and get some worn jeans with holey knees instead - they'd have been cheaper, and had knees the way they're supposed to be. So now we've got jeans with these sterile knee slits and while I know how to fray denim by pulling the white threads, I have no idea how to make them look naturally knee-worn, know what I mean? Like thisCollapse )

Suggestions? TIA!
