PRIDA stands for Puerto Rican Institute for the Development of the Arts, a Project of Comité Noviembre. Their mission is to promote and provide support for the Puerto Rican artist and the arts. I happen to be a proud member. You can find out more about PRIDA here.
Okay, now back to how I redesigned the tee. The first thing I did was to separate the front from the back, sleeves and all.
Next, I separated the graphic and cut it into this shape. This is all that I used of the t-shirt itself.
I had this long black 2X dress which I used for fabric.
I used the fabric from the dress for the sides, back, and pockets of the new top. There are no side seams, just one single seam in the back middle.
I then added the pockets on the sides and professionally hemmed the neckline, bottom, and sleeve openings with my handy dandy hem machine (did I just say handy dandy? lol)
I really love it and so glad I decided to add pockets.
Here's a side view
I love these tunic-like tops and the "El Bar Rio" (El Barrio) graphic really pops. What do you think? Would you have done anything differently? As always, I appreciate feedback and respond to all comments.
Have a great day!
