So, I always kind of thought I couldn't wear halter tops, because I'm... well-endowed.  But you know what?  Screw that.  It's summer.   Halter tops all the way.    Grin

Before:


After:


Back:


Now here's the question:  Because of the whole- I probably will never wear this anyway- feeling before I began, I used a shirt with a big 'Education Unlimited' logo.  Which is okay, I guess, I'm all for education (it was a camp I taught at last summer), but I would prefer something less logo-ish.  But what?  It's too big for a cute patch to cover it up.  But now I really like it and want to wear it!

Any ideas on what to put on it to make it a little more stylish, add some interest and cover up the logo?

Thanks!

Is the logo sewn on or printed on? If I were you, but I'm not but figuratively..lol, I would take a seam ripper and take the logo out if it is sewn on. And if it is printed...I'd buy a little flower or something and put over top of it. They make ones that just safety pin right on. And if a flower is not big enough take some rhinestones and glue them on lol

Oohhh, that's awesome! I would love to see how you made it.

Maybe some kind of fabric sewn on like a broad stripe all the way across the front? Hmmm, not sure. But it looks cute. Kinda fun to have a sexy education shirt.  Wink

I really really really would love to have Interweave Knits Spring 2007 for those Eunny Chang entrelac socks. . . Does anyone want to swap for it?! I have yarn, I can sew, embroider, knit.

I like the top a lot. The logo doesn't stand out really. I'd never even have read it if you hadn't pointed it out. So maybe you could just ignore it. But if you want to take it out, could you paint over it in black/navy(whatever color the shirt is) and then put something in a lighter color on it, say a piece of fruit or bird or bug or whatever you like? Just a thought.

Thanks for the comments, guys!  It wasn't hard to make... I'll see if I can get a short tutorial for you.

Is the logo sewn on or printed on? If I were you, but I'm not but figuratively..lol, I would take a seam ripper and take the logo out if it is sewn on.

That's a good idea...  it is sewn on, but really professionally...  Hmm.  I'll have to see what I can do with a seam ripper.

Thanks!

Okay, I really tried to make a tut and now can't get the paint file to show.   Undecided

But it was very simple, I just started cutting everything that was too big and sewing everythign that was funnily shaped.  I cut off the sleeves, then I cut around the collar, going diagonally in the front and cutting off in the back everything between the collar and the bottom of the armpit.

Then I resized it, since the armpit hole came in further than the rest of the side seam, and because it had always been kind of baggy.

I realize that probably didn't help anyone... I really did draw nice paint pictures!  But if you have any questions, feel free to ask.  It really was very simple!

ya, try seam ripping and then possibly try to stencil over it in a "sudo-silkscreen" fashion!!! there is a link on this site of how to do it, that's how my friend learned, and i learned from her!

in case you can't find it, it's really easy and SUPER fun to try! ...i'm addicted. just mix 2 parts acrylic paint with 1 part textile medium, make a stencil by cutting the design you want out of freezer paper. iron the freezer paper (waxy side down) onto the shirt where you'd like the design (it acts as a stencil). then paint on the acrylic/medium mixture onto the areas you'd like to paint, be careful though, it can be tricky!!! allow it to dry, then carefully peel off the freezer paper!

let me know how it goes if you decide to try it on this, or any other project!! (makes great tees!)
