I thought it would be smart for me to just keep all of my reconstructions together, in one thread.  I'm not posting everything at once because I have dial-up and feel bad for everyone else that has it.  I'm going to try to wait to post more until it's onto page 2 (if it even gets that far), so I won't have too make pics per page.

That said, here's the first four reconstructions:

Formerly my much bigger brother's.  Took in the sides, back, shortened, and added darts.  Fishnet sleeves with plaid armbands above the elbows, black lace cuffs.

Two shirts into one. (The center panel is blue with a glittery Tink, the rest is a light gray)

Completely ripped off from Diesel.  It was a lightweight sweatshirt (thanks Emily!).  It's great for hot days, or over bikinis. Can you believe they were charging $80 for this?

And the one I finished tonight:
Tank top with wide straps, darts and mesh back.

By the time I finished with Cueball5, my pattern looked like this:

At least I know that it works now!

Like I said before, I'll post more when this thread reaches page 2 (crossing my fingers)

We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box

       Those are all awesome.  I would wear each one.  Did you buy the patterns or make them on your own?  It looks like you reconstructed old shirts to make these cool ones.  I can't wait to see the others!

I like the last two best. Kinda gives me ideas for my recon pile in my room. And it's nice to know that I'm not the only one who has to tape pages together to make a pattern.

Damn the man, Save the Empire!


I wanna personal swap!

Peanutbuttanjellay--TinkTank and Cueball5 were done with homemade patterns, the other two were more free-hand.  And yes, they were all old shirts (and a pair of tights).

Dooney--It says Cueball's Pool Hall, Home of the Best Rack in Town!  hehe.  Can you believe this was a guy's shirt?

Sorry about the silly names, I decided to start naming them so I could differenciate between them when saving and uploading pics.

Sweetttart3--I have a huge collection of pictures on my computer from other people's work and I go through them everytime I need inspiration.  I used to use big butcher paper, but I ran out.  I'm using heavy stock paper now, but I have to tape three pieces together before I do anything so it's big enough.  So my pattern looks even more abused because of that.

Thanks guys!
