for some reason, whenver it's time to get cracking on school, I sew instead. Over spring break, I'll probably make nothing
anyways, this'll probably be the last one for a while
I've had this shirt for ages, and I've always liked the sentiment of it, "stay true to the music, stay true to yourself"
so first, I just resized it
then like a year or so later I was like oooh i'll add fabric
but I wasn't exactly handy with sewing just yet and it didn't fit so lovely
i posted it on here when i made it too familiar?

well now it's been another yearish or so and i completely ripped it apart and started over, i think it is finally complete!
front:

back (the best part):

blurry pic of the logo (i was too lazy to take the shirt off and take a picture of it):


fun fun fun






mmmmk so i tried to make a tutorial. I'm sorry that it's probably not that good, i've never made one before, and i'm extra sorry that it took me five hundred years to make one, but now the semesters over so i've got more time to spare!

so what you want to do is essentially, just make a tube top with skinny straps on it that are farther apart than you would normally think is a good idea
and the fabric that you're going to use for the sleeves should really have a good stretch to it or i don't think this is going to work out very well, but anyways, add some sleeves on it.
then, you just bring the straps together and the opening in the back creates itself! sew a small part together and you have my shirt!

let me know if you've got any questions or if there's a good way i can make this more clear
and if you do make one, i want to see it!

I really like the back. Is that part of the shirt, or is it a separate piece over a tube top?

thank you very much, good to know my love of this shirt isn't just me being crazy
i basically live in that belt, it's my very favorite. I wish I could say I was so crafty that I made it, but it came from my friend's family's clothing store

I've never made a tutorial before, after school simmers a bit, I'll try to see if I can handle making one. It basically involves making a tube top, and then adding sleeves that are too far apart, scrunching them together and then sewing a dart in the back so there isn't a weird gap
that sounds really confusing, i will definitely have to try and do something with pictures and less jumbled words. maybe I'll draw one up on my flight later
or i can try to make a similar one and photograph the steps! we'll have to wait and see

the back is in fact sewn to the shirt, a removable thing might be fun to make though, like a kind of jackety/shrug thing. another project to add to my ever expanding list

and thanks on the hair compliment! I've only had it this short for about a month and am always fearful of looking like a boy. however, i've always hated combing my hair, and having it short makes it easier to be grungy and disgusting ^__^

I really like this shirt. The triangular type neckline/ back is really interesting; you don't see that very often. Your shirt looks great! And way to go for making recons of your recons!
