I re-did the tutorial, to explain it a bit better. it's on this link http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3241/2999858966_ddd5cfdbe0_o.jpg
...............
I've been fascinated with all the T shirt reconstruction I've seen around, so yesterday, I was bored and decided to make my own reconstruction.. I had a big t shirt (it was my mom's) I trace it and start cutting... This is how it looks like, I can't wear tight t shirts, very often I get stomach inflamation because I have digestive problems, and sometimes I look like I'm 4 months pregnant, so this blouse is perfect for those days. Of course I need to perfection it but it wasn't that bad for my first attempt, what do you think?

Ooohhh. I must NOT let my girlchild see this post, or I will be forced to attempt it myself.

I couldn't approach your skill.

It's AWESOME!!!

Cute! I often wear shirts like this because they are very forgiving. It looks great.

Aw, rats.

If these shirts are very forgiving,

I'll have to try it.

My body shape needs all the forgiving it can get!

Oh my what a fab recon!!! I love it sooo much! I love these style of shirts also, I have a few because I too have many many digestive problems and am always bloated! I refer to them as my fat days LOL

I really do love this shirt! And I love the detail you added makes it so much more that a tshirt

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

Oh I must make this!  I love this style of shirt.  As a mother of three these shirts are very forgiving.  Thank you for the inspiration.  You did a wonderful job!
