Hi there! This shirt is based on "Ode to the Mullet" from Megan Nicolay's book Generation T: 108 Ways to Transform a T-Shirt, which I happened to pick up last week.  I highly recommend the book, by the way. Lots of really simple but creative and fun ideas for t-shirt modification and recycling (you can even learn how to turn a bunch of old t-shirts into a rug...who knew?).

Anyways, here's the front of the shirt, which was pretty plain and had a weird v-neck thing going on to begin with.

I decided to cut off the weird v-neck thing and make an asymetrical neckline which turned out a lot better than I expected.

Here's the back view of the shirt:

It was really simple to make (seriously, go check out this book!) and I think it looks pretty hot. Here's the side view which I think does the back a little more justice.

Thanks for looking.  Smiley

Looking at this i thought of something pretty cool. If you cut it like ribs (on your skeleington and cut the rest of it out like  peicies of your spine... it would look pretty cool...  Roll Eyes

I just made a shirt from that book today! It definitely isn't as cool as this, though.

I love this shirt... I saw it in the book I wasn't sure about it, but after seeing yours I'm definitely making one.
