I'm in the 50 projects-along, one of my items was to recon the pile of T's and such that was taking up space. So I set down to complete this item only to end up pulling another pile of clothes out of my fabric stash, meaning the pile is about the same size as when I started *big huge sigh*

Anyways here's my progress so far, few or no before shots, sorry.

St Pattys Day, a bit late or a bit early. Had some random little holes around the bottom, two shamrocks later.





More random holes but this time around the top. Keyhole top, used whatthecraft.com tute


I wanted to put this one in the scrap pile, actually it was for a night but I dug it back out.


Back


Image close up


Nothing special, cute goodwill top with to tight sleeves so I cut them off.


I made this one (gathered/weird hippy shirt before) based on one of my fave tops that got an ink stain (next shirt)


Covered ink stains with a bird on a stick



Before, my Papa's old undershirts (very special to me, he passed away about 8 years ago)


After, ruffle goodness. Used this tute http://tearosehome.blogspot.com/2010/01/tutorial-sweater-to-make-believe-tweed.html


Close up of the ruffles and the lace of the tank. I made this shirt specifically for this tank.



And why my Hubby is not allowed to take pics of me. Everyone he takes I look like a blimp  Roll Eyes It says "if I throw a stick will you leave" Nothing really wrong with it I just decided I wanted it to be a tank, combined with an old T with ink stains.

after


whew yeah and I also mended about 6 other items in the pile and made organizing boxes and took apart a jacket for tote bag. Yeah same size pile...

I LOVE the white ruffle t. Thanks for sharing the tutorial link. I want to make some cute little cardigans like that soon and need ideas to mix it up.
The red keyhole top and the patches to cover stains are genius! Great post! bookmarking for sure!
