So, I've been sailing for almost a year in a Laser 4.7, and I just went to my first stay in a hotel for the weekend regatta and they gave us this shirt. I don't want to keep it the way it is because it is huge, but I like the picture on the back of it. I don't know whether to keep it as a t shirt modified of course), make a tote or what ti make out of it.

When we were given the shirts one of my friends said that it was just another t shirt she would not be able to use. Please help me prove her wrong!!

And now... On to the pictures so that you know what you're working with!

the picture on the back:



the back:



the front (my camera decided it wanted to see blurry)



any help is greatly appreciated!

I think it'd be a cute reconstructed shirt. But that's coming from someone who always makes recon shirts.
It looks like a nice heavyweight shirt so it could be a nice tote...Wow I was no help!
I think it'd be really cool as like a dress...Yep I'm going with it being a dress.

thanks! But I dn't know what I'd do with the two little logos on the front, those annoy me, but maybe I could just use different fabric as well. Hmm... I'll have to think about that Tongue

I, too, adore Smarmy Clothes Cheesy One idea I had recently that would actually work for your shirt because the front is more or less symetrical, is to turn the shirt around, cut the collar off with the back being cut lower than the front (because the back is now the front, get it?), and then do that awesome slitting/braiding action to what is now the back but used to be the front. Plus like, taking in the sides and re-setting the sleeves or just cutting them off.
