Awful and wonderful at the same time I think - she was the original anti-housewife Which is funny because I like to cook and sew (although I won't clean even if you PAY me).

Wow! Evexa, your dress is gorgeous and you were probably "floating on air" since it was your wedding day

My latest customisation ispired by Marni:
[attachmentid=33402]
[attachmentid=33403]

I found a few holes in a sweater last week and used ultrasuede circles in gold and black to patch them. 2 small ones on the right shoulder and 2 larger ones on the front near the bottom to continue the pattern. I really want to get some purple on there to....

new so sorry if anyone has sed this before.

trousers into skirts theirs loads of different ways you can do it im forever doing it because the bottoms of my trousers always rip and fray because i love wearing them long.

also mens tees fitted to fit ladies taking it in and creating different necks like v-necks and slash necks and if its a jersy knit you dont need to hem you can leave it and it wont fray. also taking off the sleeves i love that look for some reason. or just shorten them. kind of get that 'rock chick look' hate using that term but you know what i mean. best tested before you do jus get a cheap tee and see wot you can do. maybes get a harley davidson tee and change it to fit. if your more adverterous make some lapels.

just some ideas love sharing!

Back in September I bought a sleeveless t from Urban Outfitters that I'd been eyeing for a while but didn't get cause I don't like wearing sleeveless tees. I got the idea that since I liked the graphic I'd buy it and cut out that part of the tee and sew it onto the back of one of my denim jackets.....long story short I've got a denim jacket with a panel of t-shirt with the sacred heart printed (I think that's what it's called) on it. I've gotten so many compliments on it....I'll try to steal my brother's camera and post pics.

evexa- gorgeous dress! you did so well!

I like the idea of painting designs on fabric... maybe I will do that to my new coat. If its ugly, I only have to wear it for a few days anyhow...

Evexa ! Nice dress

I've never customised anything before. I'm afraid I'll ruin the clothes if I do.

Changing handles on bags works for me too...

adding a fur colar is something I also like doing. It makes your garment look completely differnent - like having 2..
