I've done a few recon's over the past week and I'm super happy how they turned out! Hope I keep it up lol.

This is a "T" shirt, its just fabric cut in the shape of the letter T and stitched up the sides and on top to make the sleeves. I made a sequined belt to give it more shape. I was wearing it when my friend said I looked like an 80's pirate - so I went with it lol...

This was a large shirt I thrifted and then made more fitted. I gave it a scoop neck that goes a lil off the shoulder. Gave it new sleeves, added some star studs and spraypaint. Smiley

Last is the one I made today. I found this awesome Happy Rocker Buddha shirt at the thrift store and turned it into a cami tank. The leopard for the top half is another thrift store find.

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.

I love the sleeves on the punk shirt, very nice.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

These are all fabulous!  I love the clean look and the longer sleeves on the pirate top, the punk rock look (and the new sleeves) on the second one, and who doesn't like a Buddha?  These all look very well done too.  Can't wait to see what you come up with next!
