So my dad went to Colorado a few years back and brought back this shirt. It was all big and it had a touristy design on it, but it wasn't even the cute kind of lame touristy design that I ordinarily would quite enjoy. So I cut it out and just lumped a much prettier piece of fabric in there, resized, fiddled about with the sleeves, very simple
on a hanger:

on a me:

i tried to take a picture of the added fabric, but apparently, I've got the shakiest hands ever:

alas, no before pictures. It seems like everytime I take a before picture, it's a curse and the thing never comes out quite as nice

I'm in the middle of about two other things right now too, I have got to start actually finishing stuff

I like that a lot! My dad brought me back a shirt from Atlanta, Georgia last year.. and it's just about as ugly as sin, and about 3 sizes to large. So I'll have to try this on that shirt  Cheesy

Back from a long hiatus!

so I ended up finishing something else later on today and I thought I'd save room and just lump it in this one as well
so here is my pirate ship shirt on a box (perhaps a box of treasure?):

the idea was a blend of shirts on this site, one that I bought last summer, and a dress I made a long time ago. The grey bit was a shirt that I basically ruined while painting my room and the rest is lovely other stretchy fun fabric.
here it is on myself in a crappy dirty mirror picture:

and here is a closer look at the pirate ship I carefully embroidered on it:

I'm kind of a big deal.

thank you for the compliments
I'm glad to hear that they look like they fit well because they are in fact, very comfortable
I always like to leave a bit more room for the hips
