Before

After :



Edgar Allan Poe! the original shirt is beyond awesome, isn't it?
To make it a bit more feminine, I gave it a layered look - it looks like it's worn over a khaki long sleeve top with a turtleneck.

Before (hehe cute!)

After :


 
Don't worry, I didn't steal this kid's favorite pajamas  Tongue
I made this top using an other Batman set and striped knit fabric. It has 2 tabs with heart shaped buttons.

Before

After :



Pretty similar design for this long sleeved top (cowl neck, sleeves that are puffy, 2 buttoned tabs)
I like the contrasting turquoise fabric.

Before

After :



This little hooded top was made from a guys shirt. I used purple jersey and black lace for the puff sleeves, hood and kanga pocket.
The girl who ordered this one was really happy! she truly made my day, I'm so glad when people are satisfied and say they are Cheesy

Before

After :



stupid pink bra!

BEETLEJUICE BEETLEJUICE BEETLEJUICE!
Great movie Smiley
I reconstructed this mens shirt using black/white houndstooth knit fabric and black lace.
Actually it looks a million times better on my pretty customer :



wowww.

Before

After :



This one was made from a vintage Sex Pistols shirt.
I turned it into a tank top, using black lace and black jersey for the side panels.

Before

After :



Marvel zombies!!!
It used to be a large guys shirt... it's now a cute top with a sewn in red shrug!

Before

After :



Something special for a special someone Wink
This was a gift for my sister. We both love Batman, and we have always been big fans of the funny Harley Quinn.
I used black/grey diamond knit fabric for the long sleeves and collar. My sister loves it Cheesy

Before

After :



Sorry for the lame "before" picture, but you can get the idea.
This one was pretty hard to make, because the original shirt was tiny, so I couldn't cut the side seams. I added a fake shrug and a wide white hem because the top was really short.

Before

After :



The biggest Maiden fan in the world asked me to make 2 custom tops for her.
The first one was made from a dance of death shirt, using red skulls/hearts knit fabric.

Before

After :



The second one was made out of a Clansman shirt.
I used plaid spandex for the sleeves, yoke and collar, and added white trim with a matching bow for a girly touch Smiley


Before

After :



I love Battle Royale.
I love the way the logo is printed.
I love how it turned out - I'm not sure I would have off centered the logo if I had made this shirt for myself though, but the customer asked for it, and it looks good nonetheless.
Again, it looks like a shirt worn over a long sleeved checkered top.

Before

After :



This short sleeved jacket was ordered by a passionate diver!
I found the BEST fabric for this piece : a blue knit fabric with pisces, turtles, fishes... all over! hehe. I used it for the sleeves and high collar lining.

Before

After :



Annnd the last top, made from a mens shirt with the funny Cheshire Cat from "Alice" PC game - it's a plus size, I'm glad I could finally make something for a curvy lady   Smiley
The girl who ordered this shirt fell in love with a shirt I made for me, for an Alice-themed contest :



As you can see, her top is very similar, except for the neckline Smiley

That's all folks!
Thanks for reading this LONG entry ^_^"

I love your posts! They brighten my day! You inspire me!

I used to dress like a boy so I have tons of guy tees that are now just taking up space. I don't want to get rid of them because I love the designs so much! I hope to take some inspiration from your works to revamp them!
