quick and simple recon's but...

i made thiiiiiiis:

from this brand new shirt:

the before t-shirt was pretty cool: bright colours, with a comic book theme. but i didnt like how it was JUST a t-shirt (too many tshirts in my closet Tongue). i added yellow edges on top and bottom and turned it into a tubetop! then cut yellow and black scraps into strips so theres some deco in the front!


another new shirt i got at the disney store on sale! it was a long sleeve child's medium (didnt fit me of course), but i love jack too much to pass up the cute design!

i fitted it, added 2 straps (made with the same fabric as the shirt) on one side, and straps with a lace ribbon on the other side. on the back, the straps meet and form an "x" with a d-ring added for extra coolness Smiley the bottom of the back is also tied Smiley

before: my sister's pants that she barely wore. i forgot to take a before pic, but its the exact same as this, but with pink stripes.

after: the shirt is made up of 6 panels + 2 for bodice. cut off the leg part of the pants and sewed it together. then fitted it with darts. used left overs for the bodice and straps. the straps actually have lace detail, but i forgot to take a close up. the back is my fav, it dips into a 'v' - made possible bcuz the back is actually made of 4 panels!

before: another brand new huge shirt from the guy's section. i love the design of the shirt: skulls, bugs, and paint splatters that brighten up the black!

after: made it into a tank! one side has straps that tie up (adjustable of course!) and the other side has 3 straps that go along the shoulder.

***this was more of a for-fun/ experiment. i didnt really know what i was doing- LOL. tell me what you think, keep? or cut up & use for scrap fabric?

before: minnie mouse t-shirt that i never wore

after: hot pink skirt with black side inserts. the bottom of the skirt has black fabric edge. the top is just serged. i thought about added a black edge to the top as well, but the fabric stretches and fits like a dream. i dont know how to describe the upper part of the skirt.. just took scrap of black, sewed it, then held it down with a peice of pink Smiley

thanks for looking Smiley

Good work! I love the jogging pants shirt. That Mickey mouse skirt looks a bit tight though.

These are some great recons! I think I like the one with the asymmetrical straps (three on one side, and the tie on the other) the best. 

I would love to do some personal swaps.
I'm looking for handmade soaps, jewelry, and knit legwarmers/socks.
pm me if I can sew something for you!

Big fan of the Nightmare Before Christmas shirt - love the use of the D-ring in the back. Everything is super cute!
