I picked up a few shirts from goodwill the other day as an attempt to inspire myself to actually do something with my time
and.. it worked!

This shirt started out as a little kid shirt with a pretty badass tattoo girl on the front. I was gonna cut a skeleton-esque back into it but then I realized it has some gigantic advert on the back for some random tattoo parlor in georgia. Bummer! But, I can work around it.
I cut the collar out into a girlier boatneck tee, but that made the sleeves practically fall off, so I added a corsety back to it. When I get some ribbon I'll use that instead of the ghetto makeshift ribbon i made out of a cut up piece of black fabric.

Escuse the bad pictures please! I've been laying around the house all day I don't feel like getting made up for pictures hahah

I think out of all the recons I've ever made, this is the only one I'd wear in public. With an undershirt, of course. Grin
Any comments/advice is much appreciated! I'm relatively new to reconning so any help is appreciated.

I love the skull girl on that shirt and the corstey back fits it perfectly. If you don't mind me asking what tattoo shop was the shirt for?

You are super cute and so is the shirt!  The lacing was a creative touch. Smiley

That's awesome. Goodwill and Salvation army are my jam.

You're just closer to me when you fall.

Very nice, I like the laced back; it seems simpler(?) than most others I've seen
Did you use a tutorial? I've started working on a shirt that I want to do the same with but I'm not sure the EASIEST way to go about doing that  Huh
