A haaaalter, pants, purse, etc.

Went out of town to visit my parents and went on a slight sewing rampage... I made 1 halter, 2 purses, 2 pairs of shorts, 1 pair of pants. Fortunately for yall, I gave my dad one pair of the shorts [made from an old shirt of his to fit him] but they had a drawstring and I was so damn proud of it, I need to steal them back and get pictures. Also, one of the purses is in my car still and I haven't yet photographed the other pair of shorts.. gaah.

Onwards and upwards... I present:


I always forget before pictures, I'll try to start remembering!

The pants, some old mens Hollister Co shirt that I gave my brother but he never wore, how rude, ha.

The other half of the image that got cut in half to make the pants.

The tote, yes it's a bit flimsy. I lined the pink parts [sides, bottom] with a fusible fleece folded 4x its thickness. Plush, soft and light - just how I looove my bags. Found the material in a bundle at Joannes by the quilters junk [always soo many pretty things, I should learn to quilt], it's like a tweed. Lined the inside w/ the other black fabric that came in the bundle. Over a foot long [like 15in I believe]

From the side, around 5in long I think, I forget.

This was made from an old baby-tee I got from Old Navy like 2/3 yrs ago. And the cream was just from some random scraps of tshirt I had lying around..

^ It's 430pm, I have to get ready at 5 for work. So that means - no makeup, bad hair, my apologies.

Sorry for the bra, I always tend to forget how big my boobs are while cutting material - thereby, they stick out. And my arm, gaaah.

And the back, ignore the bra once again.

It's a halter [ties, not connected] and I'm quite proud of it, fits perfectly [took it in at the natural side hems of the shirt and made a new hem down the back of it]. Only issue is, like I said, I forgot to take into account my boob size so the line goes across them instead of beneath, but oh well, most shirts I buy do that anyways so whatever.
