Posts Tagged ‘jacket’

So, I picked a fitted, shoulder-padded pinstripe jacket at the thrift store for $1. Cheap, stretchy polyester. Unlined. Slightly too small, but passable. So, what’s a crafty girl to do?

...why, embroider automotive pinstripes on it, of course! Here's the shoulder.

honestly, I think the design came out rather western-looking. Even though I was starting with Art Nouveau motifs...

"ZOOM UP!"

Actually, the jacket has many more hours of work left to do. I plan to add piping to the collar and hem (which is falling apart), some lace cuffs, button-and-chain closures…. and even more embroidery, including my ranking and titles for The Wild Lost. This thing is going to be EPIC.

And finally, as promised, I have photos for all of my latest “TeeWrex” efforts! But I’m not going to dump them all on you at once (I’ve already subjected my DeviantArt followers to that xD). I’ll upload the photos, one project at a time, for the next couple days, with complete explanations. So if you can’t wait to see, head over to my DeviantArt Gallery!

So without further ado, I give you the newest installment in my line of available tee-shirt modifications…

THE HACK N’ SLASH

modified tee-shirt

two cuts. two tees. Total WIN.

Like your favorite video game, this mod makes you feel like a superhero! This modification is different for each tee. I make maximum use of the original, “base” tee’s printed design. For this particular tee (my absolute favorite, even before I modded it), the original design was awesome, but there was this huge blank space on the top right. Boring!

My first idea was to simply cut it out at a cool-looking angle and wear a tank top under it… well, that didn’t quite work. Not very flattering, no added interest…

So when I found this awesome shield design on an old fraternity tee at the thrift store, I knew what needed to happen!

This tee is now officially my favorite FAVORITE top. Sexy modesty, that’s the way!

There’s actually one more hack’d n’ slash’d tee that we photographed, but haven’t developed yet. Do wait!
