this one was reconstructed from one of my favorite little boy t-shirts.  i found a really nice green+white striped tank top at a thrift shop this summer, and i decided i had to give up the t-shirt if i wanted to keep the tank for myself.  anyway, it was a v-neck ringer tee, but now it's a tank top with hot pink flutter sleeves.  i stencilled the ribcage on with spraypaint, added 5 rows of pink lace, and then the turquoise trim.

this one was a big babydoll tee with raglan sleeves.  i added the little points at the front to look kind of like a garter belt, but i don't actually have any garters so you have to use your imagination, ha.  the sides are hot pink fishnet on black knit, there's some black and hot pink lace and the back laces up through grommet tape.

this one is the same deal, but i like the back better.

from a black flag tee.  there's some grommet tape on the side with safety pins.  oh yeah... hehe, there was a hole in the side panel of this one that i didn't notice til it was all sewn up.  so i cut through the hole and added eye tape and laced it up.

the first one is honestly one of the nicest shirts i've ever seen! the others look really well done too, just not my style.

haha, sweet.  it's always good to know there are more potential customers out there (gives me a little leverage when my boyfriend starts complaining about all of the fabric in here).

Those are great!  I really like the leopard print bettie page one.

I have a question though.  Where do you get your grommet tape?  I've been looking for some and when I find it, its $13 a yard!!? 
Thx!

thanks!  as for the grommet tape, i bought it on ebay several months ago in bulk.  and while i'm not quite running out of it yet, i've been looking for more and i haven't seen ANY for sale in bulk which is how i prefer to buy it, because it's really so much cheaper.  i don't remember the exact price, but i think i got 144 yards for $70. 
if you look it up on ebay, there are several people that sell it for around 2-3 dollars a yard, which is not bad, particularly if you only want a few yards.  hope that helps!
