so, honestly, i diddn't think this was going to turn out so great. The style prolly shouldn't have been done in these fabrics, but i think that's precisely what makes it kickass! made from craaazy stretchy olive/black stripe and the remains of an old bleached out tee i had. and the trim is like, sports mesh meets tee shirt. badass!
i actually bought this shirt full fuckin' retail to reconstruct, i never do that! but a pink polkadot collared shirt is way too good to pass up! so i whipped up this fancy yoke top :). looove.
turquoise thermal fabric + a kickass skull thermal with a sucky fit=
hmm, i don't know what possessed me to put these fabrics together, but somehow it worked out crazy good. i LOVE these western style shirts, and i need all the practice i can get making the yokes properly because i'm going to make one for my boyfriends birthday, well, a BOY one, haha. with pearl snaps and bias-cut pointed yokes, which i figured out how to do with this shirt (see how the plaid is all diagonal?) i <3 bias cutting. not the process, but the result.
i seriously ramble way too much!
anyways, i made it outta red plaid cotton quilt stuff, uber stretchy polkadot tshirt fabric and banding out of black tees!
next time, i think i'll make the back yoke a little more exaggerated and deeper, but this is great for now!
this one is great!!!! ah! i actually cut it to be a medium, but the fabric is insanely stretchy, so it turned out a large, yay...see, i can totally make larges! it's pulled back a ton, blah blah.
i think i'm gonna make one for myself :)
..some crazy bright red zebra, a black tee, some red stretch lace, and an assload of time...
haha, after i made these and tried them on, I pranced around the house in them for a long time, ingnoring the fact that i knew i had to sell them---considering i have an allmost identical pair in pink---ahh. poop. otherwise, there would be no way in HELL i would even consider selling them.
