Just some shirts that I completed. Two of them are reconstructions of former reconstructions. I redid them mainly because I planned to redo them once I started using a sewing machine. I hand sewed them the first time. And just one reconstruction that I'm pretty stoked came out great Smiley enjoy!!!

Before:




After:
Although I initially wanted to keep it a dress I chickened out at the last minute and decided to make into a tank. The dress form it was in was ok...but I couldn't convince myself that I actually wear it...so I changed it.



Now a tank:
Not quite finished because of the flaps under the armpits as well as the rough edges on the top, but I feel it's close enough to post. Tongue Wink





(it's not tight! i was just standing funny Tongue)

Before:
I was trying to make a long sleeve shirt with a cowl neck, but didn't turn out as I imagined...


After:
Kept the cowl neck idea but decided to go sleeveless and hemmed up everything in black.




So I don't have a before picture of this one (forgot!  Tongue) but it was just a standard black t-shirt, nothing new.

After:
I used the instructions from Generation T: Beyond Fashion




Thanks for viewing!!!

Nice work! I love recons of recons! The first dress looked cool, but I like what you did with it to make a tank you will really use.
