T-shirt Recon

I have become facinated by tshirt reconstructions.

I took this babydoll hot topic shirt:
And a black boatneck long sleeve shirt that had seen much better days.

I carefully cut off the neck & sleeves (in 1 piece) of the boatneck. I layed it down onto the babydoll & cut where the new sleeves & neckline would be. Then I pinned it all together, sewed it up. Made 3/4 sleeves instead of long & I am a much happier muffin shirt wearer 😉

Note: When sewing tshirt fabric without a serger, use a zigzag or stretch stitch to avoid broken stitches while wearing.

    Hi Heidi! My Mom sent me the link to your blog and we’ve been discussing whether or not the model in the “before” picture is my brother. Mom thinks the tattoo is a dead giveaway. I thought that if it were him, you’d be able to see his beard in the picture (unless he put it in a beard-ponytail…). Can you settle the debate?

    Also I’m super impressed by your projects. My favorite so far is the pin cushion.
