aw, gorgeous! Your detailing is fantastic... love the D-rings and the safety pins. Also really like they way you've left the hem raw, but edged it with the black top stitch.

I'm seriously green-eyed over your boots, too... I've been looking for a pain like that for ages, but the only ones I can find have really high platforms on them Sad

Cool, thanks. Smiley We actually bought a Print Gocco machine off eBay, but keep not having enough cash for bulbs and screens, so STILL haven't tried it out.... But once that's up and going it will be screen-printing ahoy!
I spend most of my free time in thrift shops (or op-shops, as we call them here...) and there is, unfortunately, very little in them for guys. Maybe guys don't give their clothes to opshops as much... ?

I was thinking in terms of the structure of a t shirt, and can't really think of much alteration you could do, other than changing the length and width. Hrm....

Having attempted to take my boy and his best mate clothes shopping a number of times, we're all a bit disheartened about the complete lack of interesting clothes available to guys here in Melbourne (on a reasonable budget).

I thought it would be cool to recon some tshirts for them, but was then completely stuck for ideas (other than turning tshirts into muscle t's, buuuut... that's not really the look either of them are going for)

Has anyone here reconned a tshirt for a guy? Any help, ideas or hints would be greatly appreciated!

Gorgeous! It really suits you. And the green was a fantastic choice.

It looks fantastic! I love the length. You could use the same style with an even bigger t-shirt for a shirt-dress - or add a panel to the bottom..
was the button-up shirt stretchy at all? You've done a great job... I always have trouble sewing non-stretch to stretch. Crappy sewing machine  Sad ahhhh... for an overlocker....

yeah, I went in there once, and was pounced on as soon as I walked in... I got quite intimidated, and left! I was younger and more of a scaredy-cat then, so I keep meaning to go back. A friend of mine told me that she's been there a few times, and has got quite the cold reception - except for when she went in with a model-gorgeous friend of hers, then they recieved excellent service, and even better prices  Roll Eyes

We sell them in my store, at the swinburne uni bookshop in Prahran.... But you can get them in any art supply store, and often stationary/newsagenty type stores.

Chapel St Bazaar.
It's on Chapel st, Prahran, near High St. It's huuuuuge... you'll get lost in there for hours. The whole place is full of vintage retro..... stuff!
19  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / AUSTRALIA / Re: OP shops in melbourne on: August 09, 2006 09:24:34 PM
There are two great op shops on chapel st, Prahran, near High st. (In fact, there are quite a few on that south end of chapel, but some of the are a bit expensive)
Also a great big one on Victoria st in Richmond, near punt rd.
Savers is always great - there's one on Sydney rd in Brunswick, and another in Footscary somewhere.
Smith St, Collingwood has quite a few as well.
Sorry, I only know inner-city!  Smiley
