So I need to warn everyone who reads this post in advance
1.) I suck at taking pictures
2.) There are no good places in my house to take pictures in front of a mirror
3.) I always forget to take before shots...
4.) I <3 Bob Dylan


So I had this shirt since about 1995. It was a womens size large button down shirt. It wasn't fitted or taylored in anyway and it was pretty huge on me. I have never worn it since i got it in '95. Anyway I had to resize it of course. Since I dont have a before picture you'll just have to invision that I downsized it from a large to about a S, or XS.

Then I said "egh, it's too PLAIN and 1995-ish so I decided, since I do love Bob Dylan ever-so-much, that I would stencil him on my right boob.
I also used some brown bias tape to add "flair!"

here:

see the bias tape:

the back, and more bias tape:


I also added a little shape to the sleeve by gathering the top couple inches.


and how could I go without a bob close up?


and tada. that's it. Sorry the pictures are CRAP-O-LA!

Now the wintertime is coming,
The windows are filled with frost.
I went to tell everybody,
But I could not get across.
Well, I wanna be your lover, baby,
I don't wanna be your boss.
Don't say I never warned you
When your train gets lost.

That's awesome. Could you post where you got the stencil, or did you make it yourself?

I <3 Bob too.
