Work has been keeping me away from my sewing room lately, but I have managed to squeeze a few days (and insomnia induced nights) in here and there when I can crank out some new recons.

Here is a Social Distortion T that I just bought tonight at HT. It's a youth LG which usually fits length-wise but rarely width-wise. I cut the neck so that it was a boat-neck but did it a little too much so now it's a bit off the shoulder. I also cut the back apart and serged it back together at the very top and bottom with a little casing covering where the seams are. I also took it in on the sides just a touch for a more fitted look in the front:

This hoodie is inspired from UO's urban renewal flannel shirt/hoodie that they want $70 for. I decided I would make my own by using an old hoodie that I had laying around and a boys X-lg flannel shirt that I bought at goodwill for $2. I cut the flannel shirt so that it was all one length on the bottom and then folded it and sewed it just above the ribbing on the bottom of the hoodie. I also removed the zipper on the hoodie and folded the raw edges over and sewed them to the flannel shirt so it now buttons instead of zips. I'm still debating on cutting the cuffs off of the sleeves of the shirt and folding them and sewing them so that the ribbed hoodie cuff shows.... Which do you think would be better?

This shirt was originally a nightie that I bought for $2 that went below my knees. I simply cut the length and re-hemmed it. It cam be worn with a belt for a more fitted look or without or if I decide to have kids in 5 years I can wear it as a maternity top:

Comments and criticisms welcomed! Cheesy

Cute! I especially like the hoodie. Nice job and good for you for saving yourself $60+ bucks!

I am baffled though....is Social D still around?  I am amusing myself thinking about Mike still carrying on Wink.

Those are great!  I love the SD shirt and that the hoodie buttons instead of zipping.

Yeah SD and Mike Ness are still around, I saw MN solo last yr and he was great
