So when my brother asked me what I wanted for xmas, I told him "oversised t-shirts", and recieved lots of awesome tops  ... including an AWESOME smashing pumpkins one (no before pics sorry) So I pulled out an old pink leopard top I don't wear much cos it's a bit clingy and seethrough, and turned it in to ....

The heart IS sposed to be off-centred, it looks better on.

The grey is really silver. It's almost shiney, and very nice. And Yum!! Pink leopard skin. Not as furry as it looks Smiley

Aaaaand.. the back. Which is almost as cool as the front. (my rug isn't really that green).


NOW! Here comes the dilemna!! It's pretty low cut, which I'M fine with (but apparantly noone else is hahaha) SO, I was thinking of putting a small piece of black fabric behind the leopard skin to cover myself up a bit more BUT, I'm worried it'll look like a pink triangle bra over a black boobtube. Is this just crazy? Does anyone have any suggestion to make it not look like this!? Should I just share my boobs with everyone? Please someone help!!

HAHA! Your post made me laugh. First of all, I love what you did with the shirt, it looks great. As for the boobs, personally I would just layer the shirt over another less revealing v-neck tank top. Which I think would look sort of similar to what you were planning on doing. I had the same problem once with a dress, and I gathered a strip of tulle and sewed it along the neckline and that was cute. Or you could use some lace. But I think that if you like it the way it is and you have a good relationship with the tatas, it's perfectly fine to let them out sometimes.

Hahha aw thankyou Smiley Tule would be an awesome idea. I have been contemplating attatching it to another shirt, but it's be awesome with this one. Did you sew it straight to your dress? I've never sewn tulle so I'm a tad nervous. Is it itchy? Thanks so much for your help! It was really useful Smiley

If you're comfortable in it, I'd say, wear it as is!  Or just wear with a pretty black bra that's ok if it shows?  Or with the sewing fabric on idea, what about another color of fabric like gray or white so it won't look like a pink leaopard bra over a black shirt?  Like some of the gray/silvery fabric like in the heart would be perfect if you have any of that left.

P. S.  I forgot to add you did a great job, and I love how the heart turned out and looks!  Is that a picture on the black t-shirt, or sewn onto it?

I love the tee! I agree with the gaucamolegreetings about using more of the grey/silvery fabric if the cut is not comfortable. What if you cut the fabric to mimic the heart shape? Sort of a sweetheart neckline taken a bit over-the-top. Maybe too cutesy.

Really love this tee, though. I am so inspired to do something with the huge concert t-shirts my boyfriend has from the 80s and 90s. I'm way too old for this look, but I'm inspired to try something.

Ooops! should have mentioned - The smashing pumpkins tee came as it is - I didn't do any of the writing or pics Sad Sorry to dismiss those ideas BUT I can always go looking for similar fabric. I have rather large boobs which is the problem with me wearing low cut tops, I kinda look like a hooker (the pink leopard skin probably wouldn't help).

And Zmrzlina - you should def try something out! I just wish I had more concert shirts to play with.

Awesome! I'm all about leopard print, seriously. What about adding lace along the top of the bust, sort of like this?




Some thick, black lace would look nice, be an inexpensive addition, and super easy to sew.


Good luck with whatever you do, don't forget to post pictures!

Oh wow, thank you, that's a great idea! Hahaha now my main problem is going to be trying to choose an idea. I guess I'll have to make lots more of superlow cut tops just so I can try all these ideas out.
