I love looking at all the projects in this thread!

I posted this on the shibori thread, but I guess they sort of belong here as well - they're not as amazing as all your things but I'm certainly no seamstress so I just decided to work with what I can do - tie dying and studs!







The dress was just plain white before I tie-dyed it, and the vest is a mens size medium plain white vest.

Like I said, not as impressive as yours, but I've finally got something to contribute to the thread!

Oh thanks! There's a bigger post about it on my blog (link in my signature) and also I wore the vest out for the first time yesterday so that'll be up soon as well. I'm always worried about wearing anything I've customised in case it just falls to pieces as soon as I step out the door, but it was fine!

I'm turning a strapless maxi dress into a bubble hem above the knee dress with sleeves, so depending on how that goes I'll be posting the results soon!

Thanks again for your nice comment!

I haven't altered my clothing in so long. I recently purchased a second-hand jacket the buttons look a bit faded and worn. I'm thinking about replacing the buttons, the trick is just finding the right pair and size. They are very large.

I just took the box cutter knife to my beat-up dirty PF flyers on a whim...kind of happy with how they turned out!

Took me about 5 minutes, and no sewing of glueing whatsoever and voila, Summer sandals!

^ That's a great idea!

And speaking of 5-minute projects...I got a vintage belt bag (loved the print/hated the fanny pack aspect)...removed the belt...added a chain...ended up with a cross-body bag.
