one year ago i began to get interest in reconstructing t-shirts. actually, my first sewn project ever, eight years ago, was reconstructed though i didnt know that word back then  Grin
as i really enjoy going to concerts every now and then and i just feel insulted by all these fantastic mens shirts and the boring and bulky "girlie"-shirts i decided to hop on the train of reconstruction!!


a Gogol Bordello shirt i changed into a halterneck longtop but wasnt satisfied so i changed it again in a dress with the "origami skirt" and matching straps


a Turbo A.C.s shirt turned to a ballon like bottom with a halterneck top made of white and red striped jersey


a skirt made from a "killers" shirt my father brought me from amsterdam. it does not show the well-known band!


Smoke Blow!!! i just love them!! the bottom is a spirograph skirt, the black swirls were printed with shaving cream and fabric paint


my beloved Nim Vind shirt that turned into an off-shoulder dress, the bats were printed by me and freezer paper


this is an old one, a simple tube top made from a shirt, i "gathered" one side with a hair tie  Cheesy


a Misfits shirt, i turned into an a-line bottom and made a shaped top from purple jersey, again with printed bats


my boyfriend gave me the shirt someone else gave him some years ago, its from a band called deviates, i turned the target to the front and made a fitted halterneck dress


a pin up shirt i turned into a halterneck dress with a reddotted black jersey at the top, bottom and sides


forgot one: a clockwork orange dress, the top is made of leopard print jersey and theres a tied bow included in the pattern



summary: this post is long; im a halterneck addict; i still have some shirts laying around

thank you for looking!!

Way way cuter than the t-shirts you get at the concerts!

I like how each one is different--you have quite a variety of styles for all occasions!

Also, your sewing skills are shown off by everything you made!  Good job!

wow youve done so many, and i think all of them turned out great. Ive seen a few of the spirograph skirts, but i didnt really care of them too much. I love the way yours looks with the top though, it turned out really nice .

noooo, it was pretty easy!! its basically a rectangle that is as wide as you want the skirt and as long as your waist plus the skirt ength. then you flip the shorter edge to the longer and sew one seam  Grin well, if you want a skirt i would sew a waistband, but its just one more seam!
i posted the link to the tute at the end of the first post.
