Pimped up gangsta sewing. Yo!

I have just discovered Google Transizzle. It translates any web page into gangsta speak (yes, I have too much time on my hands!!). Anyway, in light of the hip hop concert I am performing in this weekend, I plugged in my latest blog post (the one about refashioning some shorts and visiting Santa) and the results were hilarious. Trust me, you will never read nerdy sewing posts in the same way again!

You can see it by clicking 'read more' below, but please beware of bad language! This is intended purely as a bit of fun and I do not want to offend anyone. If you do want to read on, it's worth reading the comments at the end!

Once you've read mine, translate your own blog. Go on, yo know yo wannit, straight up.



BAD LANGUAGE ALERT. 
THIS IS NOT HOW I USUALLY TALK!

Quick fixes: DIY shortz update


I found these shortz durin a recent op shop hustlin spree fo' $5. They is done cooked up by Ghetto Road (read $$) n' is ghettofab qualitizzle so I had ta take em home, even though tha cut of tha legs was rather unflattering, ta say tha least.

I tried em on up in da crib n' played around wit pins n' elastic tied up in various ways down mah legs - rest assured I was up in tha sewin room, not a god damn thang kinky I promise, muthafucka! Eventually I decided dat a slimmer leg wit a ribbed cuff was tha way ta go. I have done dis before wit knit n' woven fabric (click on tha pictures below ta read all bout it) n' posted a tutorial. I do like dis look on me, so I repeated tha procedure keepin tha leg slightly longer dis time.

 Basically, what tha fuck I did was ta wear tha shortz inside up n' pin tha side seams up in ta where I wanted tha freshly smoked up seams. I took up in both side seams yo, but if one had had top-stitching, I would have only taken up in tha other n' left tha top-stitchin intact so it looked properly finished. Y'all KNOW dat shit, muthafucka! I then laid tha shortz up flat n' marked where ta sew tha freshly smoked up side seams, adjustin as necessary ta git both legs tha same. Once tha side seams was done, I just found matchin ribbin (I gotz a big-ass ribbin stash, also op-shopped n' always comin up in handy), cut it ta fit mah calf n' sewed it on as busted lyrics bout up in tha yoga pantz tutorial.

Much improved shortz :)


I kept tha original gangsta hem on these as I dug tha detail. I top-stitched on tha shortz fabric side of tha cuff seam fo' a mo' polished finish. Itz hard as fuck ta peep up in these photos yo, but yo ass can just bout peep it here.


I wore these on tha weekend when our crazy-ass asses hit up Santa Land up in Myer, Perth. Father Christmas was straight-up impressed :)



It was a hot day, n' tha boys had a pimped out time playin up in tha freshly smoked up gin n juice playground up in tha hood...


...and yes, I done cooked up they swim shorts. Right back up in yo muthafuckin ass. Speakin of swimwear, I have finished mah freshly smoked up bathers n' is ghon be postin pictures as soon as I can git ta tha beach n' take some!

    1. Nuff props. Da pantz is pimped out, I've worn em three times up in tha last week, muthafucka! Da swim shortz is also dunkadelic - so practical n' long enough ta give some sun protection. I aint talkin' bout chicken n' gravy biatch. For some reason, it's straight-up hard ta find dis length up in tha shops. I done cooked up em ages ago but didn't B-ta-tha-L-O-Gizzay bout em fo' some reason :)
  2. Wow, em straight-up suit yo ass (much improved). I find pantz so hard ta git muthafuckin right n' resort ta same stupid-ass oldschool RTW jeans all tha time.

    It's ghettofab ta peep yo ass all enjoyin tha summer, even if I find it a hard ta git mah head around tha possibilitizzle of dat shit. (Yo Ass do not wanna be up in tha UK muthafuckin right now, nahmeean?..)

    1. Yo Ass should copy yo' RTW pants, and maybe try some freshly smoked up styles. I'm shizzle yo ass is bein too hard on yo ass bout what tha fuck looks phat. Y'all KNOW dat shit, muthafucka! BTW, I'm surprised ta peep yo ass bust tha word 'pants'. I had ta be careful not ta say dat up in tha UK and I was laughed at fo' discussin mah underwear, muthafucka! And yes, I be certainly glad I'm not amongst tha floodz over there. I certainly don't miss dat UK weather. Right back up in yo muthafuckin ass. Stay dry!
