Do you guys like it better when there’s a picture? I do. So what is it? Well…
I used to have this t-shirt. I loved the bright colour, but hated, absolutely hated the crew style neckline. It made me feel like a soccer mom every time I put it on, nothing against soccer or moms, but I’m just not one. So I decided that I would slice it up a bit, and see if I couldn’t get it to a more likable form.
I did the neckline first. It was tough for me because I don’t really know anything about sewing. I just cut, pinned, stitched, and trimmed until I got it closer to what I wanted. Then, I wanted some more flash, so I decorated it.
The little fabric round came from various t-shirts and even one pillow case that happened to be jersey knit, and I stitched them on by hand.
In the end, the shirt is still a little big on me, but I like the flare, and I now have a “new” shirt in my closet.
