Here's some pics of basic shirt recons I've done did lately...

This is a Rancid shirt I bought (XL). Made it smaller, added a front pocket and then added stripey sleeves. The stripes are from sewing strips of black and red fabric together. Took a bit but so worth it.

This one I just made from an old tux shirt. I made it slimmer then added a band in the middle to act like the cummerbund on a tux lol.

I'm still not sure what this one means but I found it a few weeks before I moved from FL to PA so of course I had to get it lol. I just made a baggy turtle type neck line and added the red band on the sleeves.

This one is kinda a recon. The black fabric is used from old shirts but the leopard is new. I got the idea from a few people on here who've made the long front pockets like this.

Thanks for looking!

Never tempt a craft nerd with the joke of a cape request, as a cape will be made and will be worn.

Wow I really like those. The rancid one looks wicked comfy, and Im really digging the pocket on the last one. Great job!


Looking for a custom stamp, would love to swap!

The Rancid shirt looks fantastic and kinda warm, good for all these #$# cold fronts down here in Florida, where the weather is spastic.
