Hi! Recently I got really inspired to reconstruct some old clothes and clothes that I've never worn before. Here are some of them. I also made a wallet and a bag and if you guys are interested, here's the link to the forum page Smiley http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=355909.0

This first shirt was a men's shirt that sold for 5 bucks at some random mall I went to. The racks of clothes looked like they were rejects. What I did was sew the sides in to fit my body, cut slits at the side to make it look more girly instead of straight, and made cap sleeves.

This tshirt belonged to my brother and he was gonna throw it away. So I grabbed it and basically sewed the sides in and resewed the sleeves to make it slightly puffy.

And this is made out of an old long-sleeved shirt that is way too short for me (forgot to snap pics), and a long, unflattering skirt. I loved the pattern on the skirt so I made do with it Smiley

Thanks for looking!

I like them all very much, especially the first shirt - very interesting shape.  Love the sleeves on the second blouse.

Good job!
