6/19/09: 1st reconstruction project (idea from current issue of ReadyMade magazine). Two t-shirts and a tank to a dress. Didn’t turn out exactly how I’d like it to look, but it was a pretty quick project. Would probably start with 2 t’s in a size smaller next time. Lilac t-shirt is not pictured because I started cutting before snapping one, but it was just like the brown.

6/28/09: Rompers are all the rage! I found a good tutorial from a fellow member and decided to try one out for myself. This one was just a test run from some cheap fabirc I had laying around. I would need to do some reinforcement of seams for it to be actually wearable, but here is it is!
