Clothing Recons

More crafts ahoy! This time I went through my older sister's closet for old t-shirts she doesn't wear anymore. I found 2 cute shirts and decided to make one into a halter and the other into a cute ruched-side tank. Many of these designs were inspired by Generation T: 108 Ways to Transform a T-Shirt.

Here's pics of the white ruched tank:

Here's pics of the yellow halter:


The white tie is made from a strip of another white t-shirt I re-coned. Hrrmm... that reminds me... I have to get pics of those too. :P

And finally, here's the last recon item of the day! A Pacman skirt made from 5 different t-shirts. It should have only been made from 3 t-shirts, but I was having trouble finding 2 exact sized black tees and plain red tees. I found the black Pacman tee at a Goodwill store, one panel was made from a black tee my friend gave me, and the 4th panel was cut out from a black tobacco promotional shirt my dad had. (He never wore it anyway.) The red band was made from 2 separate red tees. If I had a better pic, you can see that they are 2 different color reds. One tee was from my college tee and the other from an old high school Homecoming tee.

Well, that's all the sewing I've done for now. I'm currently working on sock arm warmers and I have to finish my U-shaped butt pillow. I'm hoping I can make a faux Harry Potter Gryffindor scarf tonight, but time is slim and I must pack for my month long trip tonight. ^^;
