Lady Bits Surgery

I've been doing a bit of tshirt surgery on some old clothes.  I have a whole slew of tshirts that, after I had the baby, the proportion of them was just wrong.  Everything feels a couple inches too short or hits at the wrong places... you know, even when it doesn't "look" like it, babies always move some of your bits around to new locations (I'm just glad my boobs stayed on the front of my body)... so I've been chopping them up (the shirts, not my lady bits), adding details, embroidery, etc. etc.  The great thing about some types of tshirt surgery is you don't always have to haul out a sewing machine.  I've been doing a lot of it by hand because, frankly, I suck at sewing. Yeah, I've had all the home-ec classes and what not and I used to sew all the time, but I'm honest enough to admit I'm just not very good at it.  Textiles are not my forte.  My mom on the other hand can sew, quilt, knit, and spin her own goddamn yarn (I am not kidding) like a demon. 

Just give me some metal and pretty rocks to play with and I'm happy.  (By the way, if any of my IRL girlfriends out there would like to make any requests now is the time to do them.  I'm stocking up on jewelry supplies for Christmas.)

ANYway!  (I'm totally getting off my point.)  I wanted to share one of my tshirt projects.  I got this lovely shirt at Blogher from BMC and GGC.  Of course, it was an extra-large so I was swimming in it, and it broke my heart not to be able to do something with it so I made a few adjustments...


SO cute with skinny black jeans and stacked heels!  Think I can wear it into work?

Cute! I wouldn't personally wear it to work, but.... go ahead. Then blog about it!

You should share your creativity with other hip creative souls at Craftster. It's such a cool site.


Just don't wear it to any children's museums. They might ask you to turn it inside out.


Oooh. I want one.


I WANT ONE! I love it...very creative!

Thanks gals!

Oh Katie, did you have an incident with your shirt?




a. freaking. mazing.

that's is straight up project runway.
well done, lovely. but you know i totally would have sent you one that fit. and i still will.

i would like to see the outfit put together, tho.


p.s. and obviously you should wear it to work : )


Did you hear the latest about the real slogan? Virgina was going to feature "real people" making a heart sign with their fingers to promote their "Virginia is for lovers" slogan -- but they cancelled it since it's also a GANG SIGN.



I'm SOOO jealous!


I just bought the book "Generation T 108 ways to transform a t-shirt" from Borders. It's in their 3 for 2 pile of books. Lots of fun, low-sew / no-sew options.

Also, there's a sweet Livejournal community called T-Shirt Surgery which is highly recommended, but read the community guidelines before posting.


That's hilarious, of course. And something in this post reminded me of a bumper sticker I saw once: I'M AS CONFUSED AS A BABY IN A TOPLESS BAR!
