It’s a one of a kind slip. Skirt. Top. Pillow case. Domo Kun. Whatever.
Just know that a lot of careful planning went into this.
“Object for sale. Occupies space. Exists. Beyond that is all up to you. Existential question of object’s form and purpose can become your problem for under $35.”
Did she bribe some Pre-School kids to do her work for her?
Unfortunately, this skirt/slip/thing(?) took the same level of sewing skills that I currently possess.
Fortunately, I am aware of how crappy a seamstress I am; therefore, I do not sell on Etsy.
Careful planning may have gone into the skirt but not the actual listing of it
Scrapsisers Original Slip Skirt
So is it sisters or sisers? Is that the French way to spell scissors?
I’m seeing a one eyed frowny sort of face here. Photoshop possibilites?
What if this became a fabric pattern? very meta.
Rumor has it that, that may be Frances next flag.
I have so always wanted to wear a calendar on my ass.
It’s a quantum skirt. It can be many things but that will change if you observe it. Which is fine because I have no desire to observe it at all.
If only I could see it on a dummy. Or something.
Careful planning?! More like miscellanious dryer static cling
I hear this is ultra-risque in Lancaster county.
I can barely begin to digest what might have happened had she not had a plan.
Do you know why it isn’t shown on a model? Shall I tell you? Because no one must ever wear this… thing. NEVER. Under any circumstances.
We could also burn it for fuel.
“I’m being quite useful. This thing is a Thneed.
A Thneed’s a Fine-Something-That-All-People-Need!
It’s a shirt. It’s a sock. It’s a glove. It’s a hat.
But it has OTHER uses. Yes, far beyond that.
You can use it for carpets. For pillows! For sheets!
Or curtains! Or covers for bicycle seats!”
I’m sure this *isn’t* what Dr Seuss had in mind…
If I can wear it as Skants then I like it.
@#4 Suda: I’m thinking CrapShitters.
I see this thing as a result of a little game called ‘pin the doiley on the schmata’
“You’ll be the only one wearing this one!!”
Of this I am sure.
I forgot to add the ‘blindfolded’ part
btw they sell this same skirt at anthropologie for $200.
With the placement of the doily and the fringe, it looks like a severely borked up one-eyed monster with bad teeth, who’s probably whispering “kill me” because his creator brought him to life before he was finished.
It looks like a pile of textiles at a estate sale shoved in some musty old trunk that smells like mothballs!
This makes me wonder if my grandma went from a glass of wine now and then on to meth
Sudabaki, regarding your earlier comment, maybe she meant “Scissor Sisters”…no wait, I think they’re cool and that would be giving this fugly thing a compliment.
Suda, that photoshop fuckery was awesomesauce
Here’s a jean jacket to go with that ugly rusty denim skirt from a while back…
Raz, thanks. #5 greenfuzz, 22 Cineaste and I were all on the same track. I thought it looked like a monster the moment I saw it. If only had more time.
Where did Pepto Dismal go? Too risqué? I never got to see Skully’s twitpic that everyone was admiring
I took it down because some asshats sent her nasty
I must tell you, the self-appointed Regretsy Police who contact and harass featured sellers are my least favorite part of doing this site.
Created with Love? Or with utter disdain?
#30 Helen Killer: Well shit. Please don’t ever let that dissuade you though. The world would be much grimmer without cum covered cat balls.
@Suda congrats on COTD!
Helen, if I knew who was the Regretsy “police” I would tell them off personally. Alas, I don’t, so I will just agree w/ Suda and say please keep up the good work!
Sudabaki, congrats on COTD!
(to Imagine by john lennon)
Imagine there’s a doily
Sewn to a pillowcase
No front, back or armholes
Unless i’m completely off base
Imagine all the great ways
This scrap heap could be worn…
Imagine all the choices
It’s awful hard to do
No style or occasion
And no reason too
Imagine all the crazy
@curly, how funny…I was just watching this
I’m so terribly confused.
The first thought I had about the doily was someone must of told her to stick it where the sun don’t shine. Therfore, attaching a sun looking object to show ‘em.
Too bad about the asshats. Thought that post was particularly funny, especially having had children do that exact same attention-getting bs…to clarify, NEVER while having photos taken of me in too tight clothes. Just when I was on the phone…
Damn, now I wanna know what an asshat looks like? I have visualized an assclown but never an asshat. I did not know we had Regretsy, Etsy Stalker’s, AKA asshats.
@curly, you made me snort out loud with laughter, ala Crissy Snow. Nicely done.
I love this place!

Well if they can’t take the truth, eff ‘em.
When Gramma started dressing like this, we carted her off to Shady Pines.
Project Runway called. . . You are OUT. . . You must pack up your things and leave.
Oh, and where’s the crying naked child when you need it?
#14 Radical Militant Librarian
Are you by chance the Official Radical Militant Librarian of the Stephanie Miller Show? If so, I greatly admire your “Guess the Quotes” and other related work.
Is this what happens when good grandma becomes evil grandma?
The way this thing is displayed – on a post in the garden – I think maybe it’s meant to be a scarecrow.
That would be a better use for it anyway.
Suda, now I see the Domo Kun than Helen mentioned!
Oooo, Fashion Critic strikes again!
Surely you didn’t think you’d seen the last of him.
#15 Radical Militant Librarian
At least no truffula trees appear to have been harmed in making this…product.
Although she does say she hasn’t dyed it from it’s natural color…I’m not sure what the “natural” color of a slip is, but I guess that’s just one more thing I missed while I had mono in high school…..
Ironically, I don’t remember seeing any ass-hats on Regretsy yet. Only a matter of time though. Seems like an appropriate accessory for a skants ensemble…
I crochet, and I am embarrassed to death by this.
Looks like it was “inspired” by random memory fragments stolen from somebody born in the 70s… My great-grandma had gold doily-coasters a lot like that, and I’m pretty sure I was given dolls with clothes made out of similar fabric. (Holly Hobby? Raggedy Ann?)
The inspiration for this skirt came from the game of: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Katamari_Damacy
As Liz Lemon would say: What the what?
Fabric + epilepsy = a Scrapsister OOAK
Also HK I beg to differ that this is Plan B. If you’re taking Plan B you’re already knocked up… yep this shit is safer than a chastity belt: NO SISTER is seeing ANY action in this cock blocker!
Razz I actually *like* the jeans jacket! But this skirt? no thanks. There’s planned hodgepodge and then there’s this mess. I’m not *that* chaotic!
What’s really sad is that things like this–vintage fabrics and lace, etc–can be so beautiful if well done. And instead, all I ever see look like like a rag bag crazy quilt, but involving less sewing skill. (that said, those fabrics may not have ever found attractive ways to be upcycled, no matter the skill of the designer. And DEAR LORD never on the same canvas.)
IscreamUscream @11: especially considering it has no front or back, so when you wear it, you’re basically running around either topless or bottomless.
WTH! That looks like what I pull of our the dryer after I’ve done a load of laundry and forgot to add fabric softener!
Looks like the seller forgot to add a sheet of fabric softener when she threw all the vintage stuff in the dryer and when it came out all stuck together like this, she thought, screw it, I have no other use for it, I’ll just sew it all together and see what kind of sap will buy it.
Looks like my home ec project.
I got an F in home ec
Ya know…that skirt would look great with the Miracle whip necklace!
Someone out there has to put the entire outfit together…this skirt, the miracle whip necklace and the Siegfried and Roy white tiger hat! I’d pay to see someone wearing all that stuff!
Sadly, no… Just an average, everyday, garden-variety Radical Militant Librarian.
that orange doily is giving me flashbacks to my mother’s house…
Call an attorney…..this is an extreme case of slip and fail.
Wearing this would be fashion negligence, but would work if you needed to have a doily handy.
Dammit. Forget what I said above. I misread what HK said about the Regretsy Police. I completely misconstrued. No more Apple Martini lunches.
#54 rocks. Hee.
Somebody forgot the dryer sheets!
i am fairly certain it IS a top – it couldn’t be any clearer where the boobie is supposed to go
What a pathetic waste of nice vintage textiles.
I agree with Dix. Not just a waste of nice Vintage textiles but the seller doesn’t own an iron or know how to use one. What possessed this person to think this is pretty? The seller threw hankies, trim, and doilies at the fabric and sewed them on where they landed.
Straight from Courtney Love’s closet!
Careful planning. Love to see what happens when she just throws stuff together.
