Today I completed my very first T-shirt surgery, and I'm still freaking out that I actually did it. A year ago, I could only dream about making such lovelies out of my scraps. Now I have the sewing machine to do it!
My boyfriend is a Superman fanatic, and next Tuesday, we're going downtown to see the first showing on the big-big screen. When going downtown, I like to dress up, and I loved the idea of surprising him with devotion to his obsession (combined with fun glittery silverness of course).
My friend Bethi had a Superman shirt that was shrunken and yellowing in spots, so I cut up the front panel, added it to a tube top, stuck on a ribbon neck strap, added sequins to the borders of the panel, and used an old too-short disco-ball dress for the top and bottom. End product:
(forgive my boyfriend and his film studenty angled shots)
