looks like bobo the clown threw up on a skirt…yuck!
he threw up for decades!
Who says American craftmanship is dead?
It may not be moving and there might be some flies laying eggs on it and it might smell a bit but IT’S NOT DEAD YET!
Oh shut up; it’ll be stone cold in a minute!
I think the seller dropped the ties randomly and sewed them where they fell. Now, if the goddamn ties were all pointing downwards and carefully cut and measured into an even-edged fringe, I’d have been impressed by this shitastrophe.
As it is, I can smell the ‘okra’ from a few listings back. On the other hand, they’d be great with the recycled afghan pants and the leopard poncho!
It’s in critical condition, pulling a pair of Code Blue Jeans. I, for one, am living with Irregularly Irregular seams and wish that there was a pacemaker for my foot pedal.
and when the static electricity wears off, do those ties just drop to the ground?
My dryer also makes fleeting art creations that vanish like…castles…in the….sand! *sob*
William Shatner, is that you?
These jean skirts are not just cut and sewn within minutes…no, to the contrary…it easily takes, like, an hour to warm up my glue gun, and fix my wheat grass smoothie, and put on some Enya, and put all this shit together.
SO BACK OFF AND BUY THIS FUCKING SKIRT. TIE SKIRTS ARE TIMELESS, JACKASSES.
Whilst punching down a vat of cabbage.
If there was an award for best working in an Enya reference you would be holding it now.
Exactly, there are not enough words to capture the awesomeness of choosing to write “Enya” in there.
The good news is: can’t make another just like it.
The bad news is: can make another one like it.
“What do you do when your favorite jeans in the whole wide world are no longer wearable? This is what you do, you think out of the box like me.”
YOU! Back in your box.
She can’t. It’s still full of Goodwill ties and 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, etc-most favorite jeans scraps.
My mother got bad news today …
But this skirt … The idea is not bad.
The author not only had no skill, no sense of style, to control, and their idea.
With the right colors, right form of contract, the idea could be a success.
But now, I can bring good to my mother, comforting news.
Blindness is not necessarily a disaster.
Poor sense of style is it every time.
There’s always a silver lining, no matter how hideous and poorly executed.
Or in this case, an orange, maroon, crimson, khaki and ultramarine lining.
I really like the concept. Not the execution. Sending thoughts and prayers and e-hugs to your mom.
What did those poor ties and unfortunate skirt do to deserve that??
I’m not sure, but I think they were worn by Chick-Fil-A stockholders at some point.
Fathers across ‘Merica can now breathe a sigh of relief as they are no longer obliged to wear their Father’s Day gifts.
Unless…this is their Father’s day gift! (dun Dun DUNNN)
Whenever I make fun of my dad’s little black dress he glares at me and goes off to say mass.
What do you do when you cannot learn or remember how to knot a tie?
Well, some people would google it. But noooo, it appears that someone gave away all their ties to their crazy girlfriend and said ties now have a second life attacking some other misguided person’s legs like starving pythons.
My god! Revenge on a boyfriend! That explains this skirt! Cut up his favorite jeans…take the ties he left behind after the rest of his possessions ended up going over the balcony…add some bathsalts, and voila!
I’m thinking this “craftsperson” was *on* bath salts when she made this fashion abortion!
If there were also some way to sew bottles of drug store brand after shave to a skirt. Then the Eternal Father’s Day Dilemna of what to do with the kids’ gifts would be fixed.
Sprinkle them with whiskey and it’ll even smell like Father’s Day Disappointment.
“What do you do when your favorite jeans in the whole wide world are no longer wearable?”
I dunno . . . go on a diet?
Use the label to research the brand and try to order a new pair of the exact same gosh-darn film-flamming jeans? NOPE! Buy a tie skirt, problem solved…
the bottom photo of Madonna is shocking!…Obviously her current world tour is taking its toll on her.
No way, she looks like fun on a bun! A hotdog bun.
That reminds me… I’ve got jerky in the dehydrator…
Can I just say the black and white chick on the right is all sorts of hot? You can tell the girl on the left is her younger, less hot sister who is always compared to the “stunner in the family.” That’s what years of haterade looks like folks.
I think the girl on the left is lovely too… just, obviously, has terrible dress sense.
You think she’d have gone for this Ties Eating Your Crotch Skirt?
Uh, maybe we should make sure the less hot sister isn’t April before we start playing this game?
BTW, both ladies are pretty smoking hot, IMHO.
…WERE … back in 1966. These days, they drink gin, post snark on Regretsy and chase other people’s grandkids off their lawns.
The girl on the right just looks more “in-it-to-win-it” with her hairspray and posture and smile. The other girl wasn’t told she was being photographed for decades of comparison and judgement. And she feels stupid in her skirt. She will have her vengeance!
If this is timeless style, sign me up!
I hope they stole all of the ties from dorm room door knobs.
I always wanted to dress like an asshole.
Somewhat off-subject, but why is John McCain in a blond wig, clutching a yellow purse?
The Hanoi Hilton has a nice pool but don’t leave valuables in your room.
Of course it’ll last decades. It’s not as though anyone’s gonna wear it out. (Yes, double entendre intended.)
To be fair, “From Justin to Kelly” WAS about 10 years ago, so yeah, I guess it could last for a decade…
I may be strung up with an upcycled tie for this… but I like it.
I don’t know about the skirt, but I like the name…”ties playing twister.” I think it’s nifty.
The next logical progression in the series would be a viewing of the deceased….
Nooooo… the next logical progression is Michael Kors, Joan Rivers, Kathy Griffin, then death… dur.
“The deceased was a victim of The Automated Tie Rack Murderer. No one survived, but for once, the police are positive that the butler did it.”
Dang! I thought it was Mrs. Peacock in the kitchen with a Singer.
Wait, these are her favourite, unloved jeans? I’m so confused right now.
And decades in the far, far future:
Oh my sweet baby cheezits… NIBBLER! Sorry… easily distracted by adorable baritone voiced pets that happen to poop dark matter…
Cheezits have babies?!
Yep, that tasted purple.
Ack – left out the U.
People used to say I was dumb…. but I proved them!
I like it spelled with the U better.
Tonite will be Zoidthulu apparently for no reason?
Bio-units terminate noise exchange!
Nibbling: the only way that skirt will ever be destroyed!
It looks like an Aileen Wuornos trophy skirt.
I love your sick, twisted mind.
Googled it. Darklyfey, you are my master now!
To be perfectly fair, it does look right at home on the ’80s chick.
That 80′s chick is Madonna when she was human.
Patsy? Is that you? It’s me, Eddie!
Also that tie-skirt was phoned in. With a stapler.
I also just realized the black and white photo people are standing in my parent’s den.
I’ve seen some abso-bloody-lutely fantastic skirts made out of/with ties before. This is not one of them. This just looks lazy.
Somewhere there’s a pile of hideous cummerbunds thinking; “How did we not get that gig???”
I am almost speechless with admiration for that … you don’t mind if it goes bumper sticker on my truck?
This reeks of “what was on sale at the Goodwill” to me: hideous ties and a sad, faded skirt. Combining them only concentrates the derp.
Hey! I have a bag of vintage silk ties and a couple ratty pairs of my husband’s old jeans… I could make a mint being a copycat!
I think I saw a skirt like this on TLC’s Craft Wars. And then I like totally had to go out and make one for myself! Only I glued a dead bird, some plastic eggs, and some branches to mine. It’s so cute!
I saw a pretty neat tie skirt on Etsy’s front page a couple of years ago. I guess the skirt had a run-in with Courtney Love after I saw it. Shame that it ended up on Regretsy years later. As did Courtney Love, now that I think about it. Hmmmm…
“Oh, Jenny, honey, you look so pretty all dressed up for your date. Craig, go stand by Jenny so I can take your picture. Go ahead and get in there too, Susan. Everybody squeeze in.
Susie, smile! Grandma will be so happy to see you wearing her birthday present. You know how she loves Crafts Day at the Rest Home!”
One of a Kind. This is good news.
I have seen some tres chic skirts, vests, and purses made from old ties, but this is NOT one of them. My cats could do a better job of sewing something. Even Peter Sellers wearing a tie as a headband (Pink Panther movie) was more fashionable than this.
This is definitely downcycling, since the parts could have been used to make something cool and are now garbage. Sad.
DECADES AND DECADES AND DECADES
Pretty sure everyone who is a self-proclaimed outside-the-box thinker is a douchebag. And likely is not housetrained, either.
“What do you do when your favorite jeans in the whole wide world are no longer wearable? This is what you do, you think out of the box like me…You rescue unloved jeans and combine them with new and old for a one of a kind look. These jean skirts are not just cut and sewn with in minutes, no to the contrary…”
Did anyone else read that description and think of the old nutjob from David Sedaris’ short story “C.O.G”, the one that fashioned jade clocks into the shape of Oregon?
“Stained-glass tissue dispensers? What do you want with those? Let me show you something that’ll really knock your socks off.” The people of Portland winced.
