So rue21 was having a super sale where a bunch of their t-shirts were $4! I happened to find a Charlie Sheen shirt size XXL and knew I had to have it!!! (It says "I have tiger blood and Adonis DNA")
Since then, I got a sunburn. I haven't gotten a sunburn...for a very long time. 3 hours in the middle of the day swimming without sunscreen. I'm just a tad not smart. My shoulders and upper back and my face are burnt to a crisp, so I can't wear real clothes without being in immense pain, being the wonderful person I am, I made a shirt without a back to wear (as I have for 3 days now >.<).
Now...Tomorrow I have a friend's birthday party to go to and, my sunburn still hurts to touch (oohhhhh it hurts so much!!!!) and I must wear clothing...So I made my Charlie Sheen shirt into a wearable dress!!



You can see some of the washed-out sunburn.


Now the way I constructed it I guess was funny. I cut the sleeves off and the shoulders, I kept the neckband to use as a halter. I cut off the back straight at where the sleeves ended. That sorta revealed my entire back and my bum, which isn't exactly okay with me, so I put ties on the back and made it tie in front under the dress (if that makes sense?) and then the dress ties in the back so my boobs don't pop out.

Better explained on my maniquin? (That isn't my size -.-)
Front.


Front without the halter part on.


Closer up of back with ties.


And the shirt I made out of desperation...

Back!


Thanks! Comments and criticisms are appreciated! Smiley

Those are really cute! And as for the sunburn, pick up some Bananaboat after sun aloe gel, it'll feel so nice and help your burn heal faster. It also has something else in it that acts as an analgesic, but I can't remember what it's called.

I hate it when my party can't start cause Ke$ha didn't walk in.

Thanks, I've been using Aloe and some burn spray stuff with aloe in it, it's helped a lot.

Cute shirts and i feel your pain because being super pale i have also had my fair share of sun burn too Angry
Something that always works for me to soothe the pain is porridge oats/oatmeal.
Get a wash cloth, handful of oatmeal and a elastic band place the handful of oatmeal in the center of the wash cloth then gather up all the edges and tie with the elastic band.
You run your bath water through the wash cloth full of oatmeal and it turns the water cloudy, something in the oatmeal soothes the sunburn.
I know it sounds weird but it really works, hope you feel better soon
