 I couldn't think of a more interesting title  Roll Eyes
 Anyway, I feel a little annoyed becuase I lost the before picture of this shirt. It was an extra large men's polo shirt with humongous sleeves with weird cuffs.
 I took out the buttons and collar, and sewed the opening closed. I flipped that to the back becuase when it was in the front it stretched out really strangely on my boobs.
 Here is the finished outfit:


 And here is a picture of where the collar was:


 This second was a large striped t-shirt, that I slimmed down and added black cuffs to the bottom edge and sleeves.
 Before:


 After:


 
 I apologize for the crummy pictures.
 
 And on a side note, I personally don't like reconstructed t-shirts that are so crazy they are unwearable. I like mine to be more simple and clean cut... but that is just a personal opinion  Smiley

I totally agree with you on the reconstructed shirts- If i'm going to reconstruct it, I want it to be wearable and durable! I love yours so much. The striped one fits your figure perfectly and well i just love argyle no matter what hahaha. Good job!

Those both are amazing. I'll remember not to ignore the huge long sleeve shirts next time i'm in the thrift store.

Damn, those are fantastic!  They don't look reconstructed at all, which is super-impressive.  You're making me want to learn how to sew!
