plans. vote!

 Okay, something a little different. HERE are a bunch of things that I am planning/hoping to remake, but haven't gotten around to yet.

If you want, comment on what you think I should do next. :-D

^I'm actually not sure if I want to remake this. I like it the way it is, except... the pleats. But I think I could get over them. 

I tried to basket weave a tshirt. If I had the right tshirt to begin with, I think it might have turned out better. But this one just ended up looking unfinished at the end. I have a plan for what to make out if it.

Sleeveless floral dress. I'm not keen on the length. And I've only worn it once in the past 3 years or so that I've had it. But I'm not sure what to make from it; it has two layers, and they're both sort of slippery. Maybe a scarf? bag? Remade into a long skirt? I'm not sure.

Too short. And too short sleeved for a sweater. Tentative plan here.

I just had to throw in this picture of my octopus nails that my friend Eliz did.

Pink stripes. Tentative plan. Too short, sorta hard to layer. And a bit unflattering at the waist.

I've worn this once. The neck is a bit too high to wear underneath stuff (I know that sounds weird, but it ends up looking kinda tacky.) And it's too tight to wear by itself, and something underneath doesn't help that. Not sure what to do with it.

I don't mind this skirt. I'm just not sure I'd wear it very often. Still thinking about it, like the top one. I don't wear high waisted skirts a lot... because it seems to require tucking in your shirt. (usually?) and I have never liked doing that.

But it's kind of a cool skirt. 

Suede material skirt. Unflattering fit...

But it has a button and I think that's why I picked it up off the Free Table.

Sooo... Any ideas, people? :-D Suggestions? Tips? ;)

p.s. one thing I learned through this is that dark purple goes with more than I thought it did. ;)


  1. Hmm! I'd like to see what you make out of the green sweater. And the suede skirt.
    Can't wait to see what you come up with all this stuff. :)
    I really like the two skirts that you weren't sure about. They are cute! Maybe you could cut the waist band off the high-waisted skirt to make it sit lower on your hips. Maybe you'd wear it more?


  2. I think any of the skirts or the dress would make interesting remakes.

  3. I don't think you need to change the high-waisted button skirt at all!!!! It gives you a vintagy very feminine vibe, and it's a great color for fall :)
