I'm too 'XC' for my spikes!

This started out as a prototype for a tube top type thing I plan on making with a  MASH t-shirt I bought (<3 MASH!). Good thing, too, because since I suck at planning, I just sort of started cutting based on pictures of how I wanted it to look. It still came out okay, but definitely glad I didn't start chopping at the MASH shirt because I'm reasonably sure that's some kind of sin.

Here's the end result. It looks better in person, I swear. It's also about 85% padre approved, because according to him "all the "vitals" are covered, but I'm still going to get you an Amish dress":

FRONT:


Don't mind my face or my hair. The first one's because it's friggin February and I'm outside in a tank top, the others because my hair is what I like to call "dramatic" in the morning.

BACK:


Basically, cut off the sleeves and then the collar to give me as much usable fabric as possible and sewed it into a tube. Then i made a simple curve pattern and cut out mirror images where the lacing would go. Then I sewed on grommet tape to both sides and then a red modesty panel underneath. I put the bindings on and then had to add studs where the two sets of straps were because I was too lazy to change to red thread and the black thread + red binding was not attractive. Lace it up with satin ribbon and VOILA! I'm planning on wearing it to this year's Lazerfest and making a sort of tradition out of it; getting the new shirt, altering it, and wearing it to the next years' show.  If anyone's interested in a tutorial, I can see what I can do.

And here's some jean seam bracelets inspired by some I saw on here, for your viewing pleasure:
They fray a lot, but I don't mind.

C&C welcome!

Lazerfest! You must be from Iowa. Unless there are other Lazerfests. But it looks like 103 minus the 3. If you are in Iowa it is cold for a tank top in February.  Cheesy Oh and I do like what you did with the t-shirt!

the T is very cool. I do agree with your Pop lol, it's nice to have all the vitals covered.  TFS your jean bracelets, I just knew I was keeping all those scraps for a reason.
