I bought this Ireland tee at the thrift store for $1.50 to play with and I'm so pleased with the results!!!!  Grin  The sleeves are a bit tight but I'm in the process of weight loss so hopefully it will fit much better in a month or so (30lb down and about 15lb more to go  Smiley)
Here's the boring before:


I took it in with some flare, shortened the sleeves and made the neck line a v-neck.  Then I lined the neck using the neck line from this shirt that was in my Mom's yard sale pile she let me raid first:


Here is the finished product!!!  Maybe one of these days I'll be patient enough to wait to take after pictures when I've got my hair done... but until then you can look at my ugliness  Wink

Oh and please excuse the pink sports bra... again with the impatience!!  lol

This is a great recon! The shirt fits you well, accentuates your curves in a good way, and is very comfy-looking. (Plus, who doesn't like t-shirts featuring different countries?  Wink) Great job!
