I have been super inspired by all of the tshirt surgery sites out there. I finally got a good technique for bleach stencils, and It translates perfectly for fabric paint, minus the spray bottle. 

I hate the necks on tshirts (fruit of the loom has especially tight necks) and I have found a very flattering cut on me, which I have been using on all of my blank shirt (square neck, scoop back, that way I can show off my tattoo. The neckline on this one didnt come out right, and the shirt itself is really long.

I am thinking about fabric painting lower and then hemming up, but I think I like having the band of zombies.

Thanks! I wasn't sure where exactly to put this, I changed the neckline and tightened the arms and sides, So I figured reconstucts, even though it isn't a full overhaul.
