Hello Every-body. I have been sewing since I was about 8 years old. Last summer I discovered T-Shirt Surgery! :O I fell in love. No more obnoxious patterns for me!

I have lurked here for a long LONG time, and recently decided to start posting! Smiley

Anywho, these are some of my earliest recons (The black Milk halter shirt was my first Smiley )

Green and black polka-dots. Made from a HUGE old lady shirt. Oh, and I'm not big on before pics.. Sorry x.x!

Next up, Super Milk Show shirt! Made from a size medium tee shirt, and material I bought at Wal*Mart for 1 buck per yard.

Care Bear shirt! The stripey material I also bought at Wal*Mart for 1 buck per yard. Rest is from a t shirt.

And Lastly, Red/Zebra shirt. Yet more fabric cheap from Wal*Mart, and the red was like an XL shirt from Michaels.

Sorry if this was TOO heavy on the images >.>

Comments are LOVE! <3 <3

I love that red and zebra shirt! You're really good at this whole recon thing, way to go! I never would have thought that anyone made those, they look so professional.
