DIY Inspiration

There are so many things I want to make: I have a book where I write it all down and hundreds picture files on my computer, and yet my final output of things that I make is so small. Maybe it is because I spend all my time lately on the computer. Anyways, here are some concepts I have been turning over in my mind. Aren't they delicious?

Plastic skirt/ overlay (using that plastic you get clothes back form the dry cleaners in?)


Hampus Bernhoff



Cage dresses/skirts. These would be quite fun to make out of ribbon or maybe a more interesting material, like really think plastic (like I could actually find some)
Comme des garcons

this one is a rather frilly, and sorry about the fact that the girl isn't totally dressed.

Acne grid skirt



rework Tee shirts
I have come up with a never ending list of ways to re-work tee shirts, here are a few I hope to do soon so that i can wear them this summer.
-fringe the edges
-bead the neckline
-shred (as done to this sweatshirt form Urban Outfitters)

-Doodle or dip dye, here is a shirt i doodle on. i have had it for a while and it getting rather ratty so i think i need to do some more doodling.




drape, such as this Tee from John Galliano's summer '05 collection (yes i know that was a while ago, but i like it so who cares if it is an old fad)


make into dresses- usually i do this my just sewing 2 gathered scarves to the bottom of a cut off tee, but this girl used 16 XX: tees and braided (?) them into i dress. i found this on fliker but i couldn't find it again to site it, sorry.


Zippers- they are amazing. i have thinking of making a colar out of them, similar to the one By Outsapop


Or maybe I should make it into a headband type thing instead.
speaking of headbands....

I love the headband. rosett+ vintage belt. I actually made a headband out of one of my dads old ties that turned out quite nice. Head decorations are really quite wonderful, especially the smaller ones!
I also really love the necklace. i have been thinking of making some like it using the shrinky dinky stuff you get at the kids section in craft stores. what fun!

That's funny that you should mention zippers...I've laid aside one to make into a bracelet. Wow. that t-shirt dress is impressive.
