Other than the random hemming and resizing, I haven't actually made anything in about a year! I've been dying to get back into it and I finally got around to making something today Smiley I'm still figuring out my personal style (at 24!) but I decided that from now on, I'm going to make clothes that I absolutely LOVE, something that is truly me. This is one of them, haha. Something colourful and fun and a little different.

I love this flower shirt, but it's short yet loose.. I think it's a kid's shirt? lol. And I have NO idea where I got this psychedelic tye-dyed shirt, but I've never worn it. When I was holding the flower shirt and saw the tye-dyed shirt peeking out from my to-do pile, I knew it'd be a match made in heaven!


Work in progress picture. Oh so excited!!


The finished product. Tadahhh!


A side view. The colourful sides slopes down at the top so the front of the shirt is higher than the back..
 


.. which is TOTALLY ROCKIN!! Cheesy


The front Cheesy


Detail shot of the back THAT IS TOTALLY ME AND I LOVE IT OMG.


I am so excited to get back into the groove of reconstructing clothes. Now to look through my pile and pick my next victims..  Wink

I agree, the back is great! Way to refashion otherwise unworn clothes.

Fantastic.

Oddly enough, if there was no flower (not my style) and if it had some straps this would suit me perfectly! Love it!

I was debating on whether or not to add straps on it too.. I still have some of the tye-dyed fabric left. I can't quite decide!

Thanks for all of the wonderful comments! Smiley

The front is so cute, I actually said, "Aww! Smiley" out loud, and then I saw the back and I said, "WHOA!  Cheesy" I love it, absolutely love it! Awesome work.

This is amazingly awesome and has totally inspired me to go to work on a much loved (but not quite fitting) t-shirt once finals are over.

love it, adorable.

i'd say, skip adding straps.

and thanks for letting me know that i'm not the only one (i'm twenty three) having trouble finding my style... sometimes i feel like a style schisophrenic...

Me, I would have to have straps...but then again, the shirt is about your style, not mine.  Grin Either way, it's a beautifully designed shirt. The two shirts look as if they were made to go together. I love the criss-cross in back! Very clever design element that would work in a lot of different ways (in front of a shirt, on the sides, along the hem of a skirt, etc.).
