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)

Ahahaha. I know exactly what you mean. I hardly ever comment on there anymore, I mean, how many people are there really on there not on craftster? Cheesy

Aside from that, I love the shirt. And are my eyes deceiving me or did you put the coolest sparkly black fabric as the top band?!?!

The top and bottom band are both from an awesome little dress that I used to call my "disco ball dress" that had a black base with thousands of little multi-colored discs. Sometime later this month, I'm going to make a lattice-back shirt out of the top half of the dress.. Thank you!

It's black like the sides panels. I made a tube top first out of a black tee and then attached the S panel to the front. Being my first project, there wasn't a lot of structure involved when I started it, and along the way, I had to keep myself in line :p
