Here's some pics of basic shirt recons I've done did lately...

This is a Rancid shirt I bought (XL). Made it smaller, added a front pocket and then added stripey sleeves. The stripes are from sewing strips of black and red fabric together. Took a bit but so worth it.

This one I just made from an old tux shirt. I made it slimmer then added a band in the middle to act like the cummerbund on a tux lol.

I'm still not sure what this one means but I found it a few weeks before I moved from FL to PA so of course I had to get it lol. I just made a baggy turtle type neck line and added the red band on the sleeves.

This one is kinda a recon. The black fabric is used from old shirts but the leopard is new. I got the idea from a few people on here who've made the long front pockets like this.

Thanks for looking!

Never tempt a craft nerd with the joke of a cape request, as a cape will be made and will be worn.

Wow I really like those. The rancid one looks wicked comfy, and Im really digging the pocket on the last one. Great job!

The Rancid shirt looks fantastic and kinda warm, good for all these #$# cold fronts down here in Florida, where the weather is spastic.
