Reconstructed tee shirts!
I was finding it increasingly difficult and expensive to source 'girlie' band merchandise and was getting a wee bit fed up having to send to America for some decent quality items, and then again they were items that people had altered so I thought I'd have a bash at some myself! Now I know these won't be to every one's taste but as I'm skint and don't have a lot of money to spend I thought I'd use a couple of tees that I had lying around, they were a 'wrong size' order that I was going to try and sell on.
Soooo.... I cut off the sleeves and neckband, added some black lace to the neckline and used black velvet ribbon with gold 'D' rings for the straps. I structured the sides slightly to give it some 'curves'! I am REALLY pleased with the results for this top!
Now that I have done one the others won't be quite so bad as I now know what NOT to do!!
Another bog standard men's XL tee ...
This time it's a NO SEW project! That's right, not a stitch was sewn in making this! It's VERY different and funky and not for everyone! (But it DOES look MUCH better worn than in this photo)!!
I think these projects are a great way to revamp your wardrobe. They can be done with old tees or even tees that have been bought from charity/thrift shops!
And this last project was just me playing around with what was left!!!
I did have fun trying out these projects and you can be guaranteed that I'll be doing some more in the very near future!
Thanks for looking in, Take care
