I'm a huge fan of plain old t-shirts, so usually my recon consists of taking it in so its more snug, so this is my first attempt and really reconning a t-shirt. I don't have a sewing machine or any sewing experience, so please keep in mind this is ALL HAND-SEWN!!!
One old orange t-shirt from Walmart, and one free shirt from work:
From the front
From the side
From the back, excuse the bra. I'll probably be wearing a sports bra with it anyway. I'm never really one for caring about which bras are fashion faux-pas for which shirts.
AND THE OCTOPUS! I actually drew this patch in hopes of putting it on the shirt, but it doesn't look right on the shirt. If you can think up any ways to snazz up the shirt, I'd be MUCH obliged. I was thinking a star-shaped keyhole just under the neckline?
And he's a recon too since I used the material from my beloved khaki shorts which ripped, were stitched, and then ripped again (right down the bum crack while I was with a group of friends!).
