First post here, so hello! Bought a Zyklon t-shirt at their gig in Manchester last May with the aim to reconstruct it and finally got round to it during the Christmas holidays when I went home as I could use my mum's sewing machine. I made up the method as I went along and I love how it turned out. It's my second reconstruction; my first was making another t-shirt into a corset-style top.

Anyway, photatoes!

Rubbish 'before' photos taken at my flat last year:




After:

Back




EDIT: I've put together a tutorial, hope it's clear and easy enough to understand!
