i started re-working a vintage 'poet's' shirt last night..i removed all the buttons and button hooks...cut off some little bows on the sleeves...removed some innerfacing so it isn't so stiff...and cut off about 1/2 the collar...i think i may put a drawstring around the bottom so it blousons...

i'll post a pic when i'm done...
wish i had taken a pic before i started working on it...

.franceska, the bird is adorable!

a friend gave me those disels which don't fit him, but they were way too big,
so i distroyed the poor pants this way:

+fake watch bought on the street got black sticker on it to hide the "name of the designer"

francesca, the bird is such a cute and clever idea. About the culottes, I'd shorten them a bit, crazy k. You look like me when I try on gauchos and I'm 5 feet tall

I've stopped messing with dyes a long time ago. It just never came out right and I decided that the next time I want to change the color of something, I'd go see a professional

I do! And then, when I get tired of wearing them as pants I transform them into capris
