I did these two a while ago, but I finally have access to a working camera! Yay!
OK, my grandfather got me this Obama 08 shirt back before the elections and I spiffed it out a bit with material from two other shirts. I even managed to line the bust area using one of the sleeves I cut off! Go me.
Shot of the back:
This next one I got quite a while ago at a Cirque du Soleil show in Boston (which was amazing of course), which is why I love it. But I thought it was asking for a bit of sprucing up, and I really
like the fit of it now...
On one side, I put in a panel...
And on the other I took it in and added some appliqué. My only complaint here is that on this side, in order to preserve sleeve integrity, I had to add in this little triangle of fabric that looks out of place now. You can't see it most of the time, though.
Here's a close-up of the appliqué - I love this fabric!
Little shot of the back:
And finally a close-up of the collar. I put the original tag back in... just 'cause...
OK, thank you for enduring my pic-fever.
