i've had this jersey for about 4 years and never wore it (except to games) because it went to my knees and made me look fatter than i am.  i don't need any help with that, so i used this picture as my inspiration:

the jersey was just a regular basketball jersey, like so:

and working frantically through the night with the help of my cat and beer, i came up with this:



please disregard the poor photography and the fat rolls

I like the way that top turned out. I wouldn't have thought to copy the design of that dress with a basketball jersey, but it really works well. I think it looks really good on you Smiley.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

I love how that turned out.  Excellent job.  I have couple of tees that I should do this to.  Thanks for the inspiration.  Smiley

That is so cute, especially since it's a Blazer's jersey.  Grin  But really, this is awesome. I hate how unflattering jerseys are, you did a great job remedying this.

I've been searching high and low for a Przybilla or Blake shirt with no luck.. i thought about buying a jersey but they are not flattering at all.

What a clever idea! I love wearing jerseys for my favorite teams but they only seem to come in sizes made for a linebacker, which is never flattering on any woman. You really made that jersey look great! Kudos!
