I am having a lot of fun re-fashioning clothing. This is a new fad called "upcycling". I like it!
I bought five plain ordinary T-shirts, all the same (green, of course), with the plan to re-fashion a couple of them into longer tunic styles. I got them at a fantastic price and they are pretty good quality.
This one is the first one that I made. I cut the bottom off of one and added it to the bottom of another to make it longer. I then cut narrow strips from the cut T-shirt to make the twisted bling. I also gathered the existing sleeves.
This is the second one. I unraveled a too tight sweater to use for the crocheted sections. Making crocheted lace is no different than making doilies, just larger. I shortened the sleeves before adding the crocheted edging. I enjoyed making it! I find crocheting to be a good stress relief.
Both turned out very well, fit perfectly and are so comfortable!
