Hey...so, I have just finished my latest t-shirt recon and thought I would share the results, plus two I did a while ago...
All of them used to be plain big boxy guys t-shirts.

This one is not really my normal style, so I'm not quite sure if I like it. Any thoughts? I wanted to try this style of neckline (which I actually don't know what it's called..does anyone?).
The neck closes with a little black cloth-covered button because I otherwise I can't get it over my head  Undecided
I tried using lace as trim, but I think the fishnet works better. The lacing can flip around to the back too, which cinches the whole thing up a bit more and makes the fishnet panels on the side look ruched, but I didn't get a picture of that.
and excuse the bra straps.. :*
It reminded me of gothic lolita stuff..perhaps just because I've been looking at it a lot lately? So if it doesn't really fit in that category, sorry, I realize it's not exactly the same thing.

I know, it's a bit uneven, but I've been told it's not that noticeable. I have no idea how to stop the zippers from going all wavy/bumpy like that, but I'm still quite pleased with it. I wore it with a buckled waist-cincher over top for a military-themed fetish ball.

Apologies for the terrible picture, it's the best one I have:

I learnt from this one that I shouldnot use bias tape for trim unless I'm prepared to add a zipper. The grommets took a while, but came out quite well, I think Smiley

Any comments, criticisms, etc?

Very nice!  I love t-shirt reconning, it's the chance to make something completely yours.  Cheesy
I believe that neck is called keyhole if I'm not mistaken....though I could be.

Thanks :-)
I wasn't sure about the triim on the neck on the first one, I might wear it more without it...
Ok, I thought it might be be a keyhole neck, HandsyMalone Smiley

A tutorial for which shirt? or more than one? I can certainly try and write one Smiley

I like all of them Cheesy The neckline on the first definitely makes it what it is. It's distinct and cuuuuute!

I wore the first one to Uni today, with the lacing in the back, I think I actually quite like it. It's nice to hear the collar is better the way it is too Smiley
I will try & write a tutorial this weekend, I'm really busy with classes until then. It's for the first one, yes?
