so, i'm living in cincinnati for the summer, and i was so excited that my roommate had a sewing machine seeing as how car space was going to be tight, and i didn't know if it would have been able to make the trip.

i've been sewing and reconstructing for a few years and just now hopped onto the wagon to share my sweet threads!

so, without further adieu, my cincinnati summer projects!

too big men's button up to tank:

before


after


XL men's polo to fitted shirt:
before


after


this one was a slightly too big un-flattering v-neck that i "poor man's screen printed" and turned into a tank (sorry, no before pic, it was a pretty typical shirt)




and this one isn't really a recon, but i didn't know if i had enough pictures to warrant another post, this was more of a sunday afternoon project.  the cool thing about this dress is that today (while garage sailing) this guy asked me where i got my 60s style dress, because he hasn't seen anything like it since that time!
