This isn't a typical recon but I think it's more of a recon than anything else since I used a regualr shirt for the base.

So For my first craft fair I wanted a shirt that was a little special. I also thought it was going to be outside. SOOOO I bought a boys t-shirt at the 1.00 tree not thinking about the fact that they are typically irregulars.
I should have gotten a slightly larger size but oh well. I removed the edge on the sleeves, and changed the neckline(which was practically like a turtleneck it was so high) and then added the logo(iron on transfer) and sleeves new neckline edging and the strip at the bottom to add length.
I love the way it looks now! But will probably add a longer strip to the bottom since it wasn't quite as long as I'd like.
Oh the sleeves are full sleeves they attach at the shoulder to the seam for the original sleeves. I also hemmed the original sleeves after I cut the trim off.

I'd love to know what you think!

Nope but I bought it to make a shirt with. I have a long sleeved t-shirt that had holes under the arms from the wash the last time so I cut the sleeves off and used them as a pattern.
I plan to cut the rest of the shirt on the seams and use it as a pattern. It had shrunk a little bit so I will be able to make some more t-shirts that are longer. Smiley
