I used the back portion of a Slayer girly t-shirt to make this bodysuit (well, maybe leotard is the proper word but whatev). I remember not liking bodysuits when I was younger, maybe thought they were uncomfortable... but this one's awesome! And comfortable. Ah, the benefits of making stuff yourself.

Anyway, I used stretch rayon from an unwanted dress for the back and bust. I added red elastic trim, adjustable straps, and made some cutouts on the back. BAM! I love it! I guess bodysuits are often meant to be worn under something but... I wouldn't wanna wear anything over this!

I need to figure out something like that that will work for me. I love bodysuits...I remembered them as a little girl but after I worked at American Apparel a couple years ago I came to love them (but often found theirs lacking...especially in the torso length department). How does this do in terms of riding up? Of course, I usually wear pantyhose UNDER my bodysuits to help with that but maybe if I make some of my own, I'll have better luck.

Also, I remember them advertising bodysuits being worn without pants or skirts...and I say who gives a f! Go for it and be sexy as hell girl!

This is totally rad and you totally rock it. I can see this being worn at a concert as is, with the fishnets and nothing else. Just be careful you don't get raped! What did you do with the front of it?

Shilohcoral- Not sure about the riding up issue... I guess it has to do with fabric choice and the cut.  I didn't have any problem with this one! Yeah when I tried one on at the mall a while back, it was too short and really uncomfortable! Probably because it was at a junior's store and those mall stores use cheap fabrics, have limited sizes, etc.

Jexxican- Thank you! At the right concert, this would be fun to wear! I've never had much problem with being molested at shows but...I've never worn something this skimpy to a show! And I steer clear of big concerts that are likely to be flooded with meatheads, anyway.

And are you asking what I did with the front of the t-shirt? I made something else awesome. I'll probably post pics of that soon too or you can see pics on my Facebook page.

Holy crap!! I have been trying to do something like this but have had NO luck with a pattern :c Did you just use another body suit and add the seam allowance? This is awesome!
