Here's 2 things I reconstructed:

The original shirt was all white with a HUGE graphic on the front that was pink and sparkly and said "Baby Boo"...so not my style, but I liked the way it was made (a tank top with ruffles along the bottom sort of like a skirt and a shiny belt buckle thingy on the side). WHat  I did was cut out the whole front of the shirt, and cut some stripey material into the right shape and sewed that in. There was a bit of a hole left in one side, so I went over it and it turned out a little messy, hence the  black bow to hide it. I'm thinking it's missing something...maybe a stencilled pic on the front, but I'm not sure...any suggestions?

Then...from the thrift store I found a men's huge sweater...first I resized it to fit me, then I sewed on a piece of scrap fabric that I had stencilled guns onto, and then I added a zipper (because I dont have a sweater with a zipper and really wanted one)...I think I still might make it just a bit smaller to fit better.

I really like the sweater but I agree that the shirt needs a little something extra... hmmmmmmmmm... I'm not sure what though. A stencil would be nice. Maybe something red?

The shirt is so cool!  You should put a colored stencil off to the bottom left side on it....like a pink, red,  or yellow stencil of a skull and cross bones...it'd look great with the little black bow!
I love the hoodie! esp. the gun patches.  Was it hard to resize it?

yes, a pink or a purple stencil will be very nice .... or you can cut from a stretchy one color fabric a shape and sew it .... the skull idea is very nice - i think  Smiley
