Hey everyone...

This is my first post here...just a simple t-shirt recon inspired by Violentjayne. I just took a t-shirt, cut a hole in the back, and shirred around it twice. (I was just trying to practice shirring).

It's super simple, but I'm very happy with it! What do you guys think?

Normal t-shirt (it's black, even though my dumb camera makes it look blue):


But wait, look at the back!

I have never seen anything like that! (Can you tell I am not totally struck on reconstructing clothes?)

However, that looks fantastic!
Great work!

A question: the t-shirt would need to have excess in order to do that, correct? Meaning: if one had a t-shirt that was too big around the waist, then shirring would cure the problem?

I will now have to go check out your inspiration, Violentjayne.

Thank you!

The shirt does need to be a little loose, otherwise it will get too tight. I just did two rows, but the more you do, the tighter the shirt will get. It really all depends on how fitted you want the end result to be.

Hey, that turned out to look really cute! I'm wondering how it would look to sew some lace in the hole. Might try that myself sometime! Good job Smiley
