I absolutely LOVE doing t-shirt reconstructions! I'll never stop doing these, no matter how rich and famous I get, lol. Here's my latest.
I bought this t-shirt in Old Navy. I loved the words and guitar print combo, so cool! It wasn't particularly super big, it was just unflattering.
I decided to take it apart; the entire front, sleeves and all, from the entire back.
Then I cut it in this shape. I was intending to make a cowl neck line.
Here's the back shape. I used a self drafted pattern for this.
But then I thought "this is a rocker t-shirt, it needs a more dramatic transformation than just a cowl. I am a big fan of asymmetry so I looked in my leather stash and decided to add a patch on one side. I also folded the neckline into this asymmetrical shape and stitched it on the side.
Here's what it looks like from the back
My best air guitar! lol.
I really love the way it came out. Since I truly believe in the transformative power of clothes, it's a special piece that can be saved for times when I don't feel like a rock star.
I'm always interested in knowing what you think and I read each and every comment.
