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.


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.


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...

Thank you all for such nice comments Smiley

These are the first recons that I really like and wear. My Hubby "where'd that shirt come from?" lol.

I love your recons!  So cute!

I really love the white ruffled one the best, but the one with the bulldog on it is also very cute!

Great ideas--very inspiring!
