Had a halloween t-shirt that didnt fit me anymore so my wife wore it. She loved it but it didnt fit her very well, so i decided to make it fit her and while i was at it, give it a hood, sleeves, and cat ears lol. The colors worked out very well, and she loves it.

Front with ears

AAAAAND another front, what can I say, I love my wife. Isnt she beautiful?

The back with hoodie laying down

Back with ears up. What do you guys think? the back needs something, unfortunatly she wont let me do a tail lol

Action Shot lol

If you cant tell, and you might not the pics arent very close, but i left the original hems ont he sleeves and sewed the black sleeves under them so it would look like the orange shirt was worn on top of a black one. Sewed it so you can move the hems and crap so it looks even better, did the same thing when I attached the hood.

Anyways, we love it, but its not compleatly done, once I find another black shirt to cut up, its cgetting a pouch *grin* no more fabric left over big enough.

I love comments so, let me know what you guys all think. Thanks!

so cute! what a great husband you are!

The connotations wearing my nerves thin
Could it be semantics generating the mess we're in?
I understand that language breeds stereotype
But what's the explanation for the malice, for the spite?

that's such a cool idea. I like the two colors together too. Just throwing this out cause you mentioned putting somthing on the back. Maybe you could put stripes on the back? Just an idea.

duct tape is like the force. There's a light side, and a dark side, and it binds the universe together.

violentjayne - Thanks!!! I asked her about the tail again and told how I would do it (either alternating black and orange stripes, tiger stripes, or black with orange skunk-type stripes) but she says a definate "No" lol. oh well.

Scary Teri, DogGrrl, Magdellena, Reddevil - Thanks! Glad you guys liked it  Grin

alwaysinmyroom - Wow, first marriage proposal from a craftster.... wife says sure, but I can only make her stuff lol  Wink  Yea, i love the look of one shirt on top of another, it just looks "right" to me.

Tom-Kat - yea, i've thought about stripes either on the back or down the sides, but as for right now, she isnt biting. She seems to like the back as it is, but who know how long that will last. Smiley

Very very fun shirt, its the perfect color combo for the season!  Halloween is the best!

Maybe you could just fabric paint an outline of a cat hanging out in front of the full moon, or something in that vein, to go with the ears!  (I am a huge fan of the iron in fabric markers.)
