Ok...
So I am very excited to show off my new shirt I made for myself. ( Well Re-constructed)
I attacked a slinky shirt of mine that was wide & short (weird combo)
I resized it to fit me, then I added long sleeves, with leopard fabric for the cuffs, grommets & some pretty green ribbon to bring it all together.
I love it! I hope you do too.
Thanks for looking.

I LIKE it! I don't know... I think that the collar would definately benefit from having some red in it... So that it ties the whole thing together maybe? Or maybe you could make it slit down into a bit of a v, have grommets on either side, and lace them together with the same ribbon you used on the bottom. Huh Just trying to be helpful!! I've had some of those weird wide/short shirts before. I love that you actually did something with one of them.

It's a slinky!!! Oh man those things are cool.  I really like the recon, great job!  what about making the neck wider, like a boat neck or scoop neck and putting a red binding on it?  I feel like maybe a red bow would be cute somewhere, but I dunno.  Good luck!

Thanks for all the suggestions..
I really like the idea of adding the same red to the collar, maybe the v-neck thing...& using the grommets around the v like alkalntrin suggested. (thanks  Wink )
I will try it out, and post pics of it again soon.
And thanks for all the great comments, you guys are great for my ego.
