Old vs. New
Old vs. New
Old pair on top, new handmade pair on bottom. Although the new pair look bigger, they are very close to the same size. The leg elastic on the old pair is gathered more at the back than front; opposite for the new pair. Before I make these again, I will probably make some very minor modifications to the pattern to make a certain area wider, a certain area less bulky, etc. i.e. I'll refine it a little till it's just right.

For the Craft contest, I used some old t-shirts and vests to make a quirky patchwork wrap-around - perfect for covering up on the beach (especially if you've just had a swim), and then it can be used as a beach mat too! It has 2 layers: t-shirts and a stripey cotton fabric I will be blogging about how I made the cover-up on my blog at

Sew Subversive: Down and Dirty DIY for the Fabulous Fashionista
Sew Subversive is about making fashion your own, whether it's embellishing or customizing off-the-rack clothing or transforming clothes that have lost that loving feeling. The three twenty-something co-owners of Stitch Lounge, an urban sewing studio in San Francisco, teach you, in plain, fun language, how to do it, whether you're hand sewing, machine sewing, or, in a few cases, simply wielding a pair of scissors.

The first three chapters lay the ground work: Hand Sewing Basics, You and Your Machine, and Gearing Up, which includes Fabric 101, how to set up a sewing space, and a run-through first project on the sewing machine. Then the fun begins with Embellishing and Customizing projects, including adorning your pant legs with ribboning, turning a computer-scanned image into an iron-on that you can apply to a t-shirt or skirt, taking in a skirt, or untapering a pair of pants (the authors believe tapered pants are the devil's work). Then move onto Refashioning: The Next Life of Your Old Clothes and turn a t-shirt into a skirt, a sweater into a halter top or legwarmers, or a pair of pants into a hip belt. There are 22 projects in all, some of which only require an iron and/or pair of scissors, while others can be sewn by hand, for those readers who haven't yet made the sewing machine plunge.
