Plain White T's


After all the positive comments from my last t-shirt re-fashion I felt rather invigorated and decided to give it another go. So with a plain white Hanes T I've had on hand for a few years I created this little number.



I really like the look of white t-shirts but feel like sometime they just need a little something to add a little pizazz to your overall look. Admittedly this shirt isn't done to perfection...the corners are a little off and I might take the bodice in a little more, but overall I think it turned out well enough that I don't mind a little imperfection. Again cutting and sewing the neckline proved a difficult, but nothing a few darts couldn't fix.

So that's my shirt.

I actually got the inspiration for the shirt from this magazine cover I remembered a while back featuring Alexis Bledel from Gilmore Girls in a dress by L.A.M.B. {that would be Gwen Stefani's clothing line}. Sort of a dream team combination in my world.

  2. So stinking cute! Way to be creative. You should buy a little boys undershirt and make one for your little girl.

  3. crazy!! I've just been doing some "spring" cleaning in the fall and decided not to throw things out but re-do them!! I am soooo sick of shade shirts I could die!! Now I know where to look for inspiration... I'm just glad we don't live in the same city any more! Such cute creations:) Have you done any for Pen yet? That's on my list too!

  4. Wow! Another masterpiece. Those darts are the perfect embellishment. I have been meaning to tell you that I am watching all the Gilmore Girls dvd's and am on season 6 right now! I will have to consult your blog when I'm finished so that I can figure out how to visit "Stars Hallow".

  5. Thanks all.

    CM--I should totally go buy some little boy t-shirts and make one for Beanie. great idea.

    Erin--there are so many things I regret throwing out wishing I still had them to revamp....then again, I would just have a ton more crap to haul around... but yes I want to start making some clothes for the Bean too!

    Terese--Don't you love it! That's so funny because I've started watching it again from season 2 and just finished season 5 yesterday! Season's 5 and 6 are tough ones to watch...just makes you want to beat Rory with a stick. And you should definitely visit Stars Hollow.

  7. I'm hoping my girls get your creativity and talent, because I have nothing to offer in that category! Love the shirt and I think a little imperfection just makes it more unique :)
