The first one is from a while ago and is made from a men's t-shirt. I happened to have a matching pink zipper lying around so I added it down the back of the shirt and as trim at the bust. I'll definitely do it differently next time so that the zipper doesn't crinkle! Oops! The next two I made this month. I gave them angled hemlines, made one a halter tank and added elastic trim to the other.

Oh and this one! The drummer from Slagstorm https://www.facebook.com/tarpit.of.doom saw my work and asked me to reconstruct one of their shirts. He wanted it to be "like something a cave girl would wear!" I gave it a lace up back. SO awesome because I was already a fan and now I have this sweet shirt!

Ooooooh, I like these! Very flattering! I especially dig the little pin tuck texturing on the second two (not sure what to call that technique, haha). Did you dart the bottom of the first one or did you use panels?

Thanks! I don't know what to call that technique either. On the one it's almost like... inside-out pintucks? On the Pig Destroyer tank, those are darts going down the back.

Hanve' hear do these bands, but my husband probably has. You're way of redoing them is so awesome. How flattering that the drummer of one of them asked you personally to do a shirt! Totally rad! That's got to mean a lot.

Jexxican- Yeah, Slagstorm is playing a show in my town soon. The drummer asked if I'd wear it to the show but it's way too cold for that! Of course, I can layer tanks over long sleeved shirts or whatever but it doesn't have the same effect.
