so... i have had this old pink floyd shirt since before junior high, and it was my most favourite tee of them all. i wore it nonstop, and eventually it grew super nasty and what not. so i took it apart, and used two old comfy cotton tees to try make a clone. and boy am i pleased. it's insanely comfy, and i love it a tonnnn. it's nothing amazing in the creativeness area, but amazing in comfy-ness. so on with the photos!


the favourite tee, (now dead):


the two ginormous tees:


and after:





and yeah, like most of my tees, the neck is unfinished, just serged. i was planning on ribbing it or using some thing black lace, but i think i'll leave it just serged... for now.

thanks for looking!
comments/criticism appreciated!

When I saw a topic entitled "two big ol' shits to a fab fitted raglan/baseball tee," I admit I was intrigued....  Grin

It's nice to see that you meant shirts, and you did a wonderful job! I really like the final product and would wear it in a second!

Great job!
