Okay, so it's true that I do sew, and I like creating stuffed animals and I do occasionally attempt altering clothing.
Soon, I'll be attempting a dress from a pattern.
This is scary.
So, in the meantime, I'm showing you other successes and failures in my wardrobe! Yay!
To begin with, PANTS.
First, we have a pair which I had loved to death. GIANT holes in the knees of these ultra comfy pants upset me. They were also covered in paint, which happens to everything I own.
For a while, I was wearing pajama pants underneath them, but they'd bunch up and be a pain to get on and off.
I decided to just cut the Hell out of the pajamas and sew them underneath to the pants themselves as patches from the inside:
Then (and a little before) I used fabric paint to make a bloody horror look, like someone had sliced off my knee caps.
Next up is a pair that fit me reasonably well, were cheap, and I was bored...
So I sliced them up on purpose, added the fabric paint from both sides as "blood" and stitched them back together with thick, black thread. Zombie pants!
A better look:
Finally (as far as "horror pants" go), there were pants on sale that were normally pretty expensive ONLY because they came with pre-made holes. I determined that there would be no reason for such holes unless they were bullet wounds, so this occurred:
Really finally, the Bat-Pants. These pants were also well loved and full of holes achieved in battle, and the patches are just cut outs from really soft men's underwear. I had bought them for a boyfriend who didn't want to entertain me by wearing them, so I repurposed them:
I have too much time on my hands!
