Hey you brilliant craftsters!

I have a multitude of tee shirts that I would like to change but I am not sure the best way to go about doing so. I want to alter each shirt in a different way. They are all Hanes Beefy tees and have sorority stuff written on them. I do not like wearing baggy shirts as I am thin and it makes me look like a strange child wearing his big brother's clothes. I want them to be sexxah but not cheesy.

Thank ye.

try searching the reconstructions section for tutorials--there are some amazing ones up there already.  I'm gonna try some this weekend!

happy crafting! Smiley

I made a skirt out of one! (I love it.) I have a few other shirts that I wantto reconstruct but I'm a little afraid of taking scissors to them because my boyfriend gave me them and they're really special to me. (I love him but man, he doesn't know anything about shirt sizes!)

Try in the memories of www.livejournal.com/community/t_shirt_surgery for tutorials...the guys and gals on there are so creative.  Also, try www.ohmystars.net

I have a few Kappa Sig shirts that I want to reconstruct because they're all men's mrediums or larges and I sort of drown in them. As it is, I can only where them as sleep shirts. I'm going to make one into a halter, I think and post so you can see, MEGAFRAN! Else you'd never see it. . . mwhahaha.

I posted a bunch of reconstructions, mostly former t-shirts here.  I'm going to continue posting my stuff on that thread, so it will be added to.  No one's asked for tutorials, but if desired I could make some.

I agree with everyone else, ohmystars, livejournal and the reconstructed clothing thread.  Oh!  I remembered another one, I haven't seen it mentioned on craftster yet, so I'll introduce it here:
