80  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Jumping on the band wagon...just a litle bit tho... on: April 19, 2005 05:48:55 PM
Ok so i learned how to use a sewing machine the other night the first thing i did was ask my brother for one of his old shirts so that i could make it smaller which i did...for some reason i hate sleeves so it basically went form an adult large to a youth medium with no sleeves

The second one i did was a colorguard shirt that was an adult large and turned it into a tank top that was much smaller and tighter fitting YAY! I have to fix it tho because one of the straps popped  i may or may not take the strap the rest of the way off and use it as a tube top or ad 2 longer straps and make it a halter as well idk...

the third one is when i jumped on the band wagon and did a no-sew halter with one of my old work shirts

I think as soon as i find the t-shirt one of my ex's gave me i'm gonna make it into a tube top...try to at least its a 2xl

oh well let me know what you guys think... up to this point all i've been working with is duct tape, paper, and cardboard

here is the link to the pics ]http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/armybrat_dc/album?.dir=394c&.src=ph&store=&prodid=&.done=http%3a//photos.yahoo.com/ph//my_photos
