Be nice - I've never had to take pictures of a shirt while it was on me. Cheesy

This started out huge and cost me a buck at a garage sale.
I bought it when I had first found Craftster, so I was like "yeah! I can make this smaller! I have the technology!". Surprisingly, it wasn't that hard.




Me trying to get a picture of the whole shirt in one of my roommates' mirrors. It turned out blurry, but hopefully it gives you an idea of the fit of the shirt. It looks a little small since when I reconned it like a year ago I was a 36C and now I'm a 34D.  Embarrassed



A somewhat decent picture of the graphic on the shirt and the neckline. I don't really glow in the dark, my camera just has a bad flash and I'm pale.



A picture of under my arm. Cheesy I wanted to show off the neat stitching (I impressed myself for my first time on a sewing machine) and also the awesome fact that the neon green (!!!) thread I used kind of peeks through the seam since it obviously doesn't blend. I just noticed the original arm seams don't match up, but, erm...I don't care.



A picture of my favorite part of the shirt - I screwed up that side and was just like "meh, some safety pins will fix it". Unintentionally punk. Cheesy The back isn't normally flipped up like that, it just does that sometimes.



And a picture of my awesome belt, 'cuz I CAN. Cheesy

Thanks for looking! You guys are awesome at what you do and I am honored to be posting on this board.

You know what I love the most?  Your whole attitude, not being all perfectionist about it and making the errors into something cool.  You're inspiring me to be more free, because I'm such a perfectionist now.

Oh I want one!!
I loooove Invader Zim!
Pity its pretty much impossible to find any merch in Aus and buying on ebay can get just a bit too expensive!
You did a great job-the fit looks reallly good!

Awww, thanks! *blush* I figure that since I'm a newbie to pretty much all the crafts I do, I won't be able to get things perfect anyway, so I might as well just have fun with it and not stress over it all.

I agree! I think it's a great attitude to have when you get into something new. I was the same way when I made my first reconstruction. (Not like I've made a ton or anything.) Who cares if it's not perfect - you made the frickin' thing! That's more than most people can say.

The neon green thread is sweet. And your icon cracks me up. Smiley

That was my feeling exactly! "Heck yeah, I made a shirt! Wooo!".

A DOLLAR???

Sell it without sewing it and it would cost quite a pretty penny. Hot Topic sells IZ (Invader Zim) stuff for like... too much. I bought my jacket for $40.

Lucky.
