My best friend goes to concerts, and is a big guy. He doesn't understand that I'm not the same size as him. But here is one reconstruct I just finished! Some scissors, thread, and lace! I do everything by hand, since I don't own a sewing machine.


Before! The A7X shirt is next, but the Motion City Soundtrack shirt was today's project.


Excuse the lighting on this one.. I have no clue why my camera phone does this occasionally Sad


A better picture Smiley

Wow, this is actually awesome. I don't mean to sound skeptical but there are so many t-shirt recons (especially ones that are concerned with downsizing) that turn out just awful. I've never been a fan of the "I just fell into my shredder" look. And the lace works great too.

Thank you so much! I wanted to do something pretty and something that would make it more wearable for the San Diego climate without showing skin in random places Smiley

And thanks to you Spaghetti_Cat!

that is really cute! I have to say I am very partial to that avenged sevenfold shirt, I just saw them in concert last week, they're amazing! Hopefully you make something awesome out of that one too.

Yes I wanted to see them, but I couldn't go with my friends. They drove from San Diego to Phoenix! That shirt is next on the sewing list, as soon as I can figure out how I want it to look!
