Project: Customized tshirts

What to do when you have a whole bunch of t-shirts that you never get to wear? Give them away? Put them all on in order to keep you warm? Nope. Transforming them is the answer.

So, I found myself with a few t-shirts with cute or funny designs, but otherwise quite plain and rather boyish. The idea of customizing them had been haunting me for quite a while but I didn’t figure out exactly what to do until one sleepless night. I grabbed my good old friends: a pair of scissors, a needle and some thread and I added a little magic in the form of ribbons and chains.

Seriously now, I cut off the sleeves, the collar and a deep V in the back and after a little measuring I sewed the ribbon and the chain and got what you see in the pictures. Geeky t-shirts with a feminine touch.

The wonderful t-shirts had been bought from threadless.com, and while we’re at it, here you can get a glimpse of how they used to look before: black one and white one.
