Day 100 :: Monday April 9 :: Ottawa

Make something new out of an old T-shirt. It doesn't have to be wearable when it's done, but if it is, document it while someone has it on!

Hmmm. My main problem with this assignment was that i donated all my old, i-never-wear-this-anymore t-shirts to charity about a month ago... was there still a t-shirt lying around to sacrifice? Thankfully, at the very bottom of the drawer was this Hart&Huntington shirt (below, left), just begging for a little transformation.

The inspiration: I used to have a 'deconstructed' Gap tank top (navy, unfinished seams, perfectly worn-in) that i wore all the time in the summer... since it's long gone, i thought why not make a new one? It didn't take long to cut off the sleeves and 'boat neck' the neckline, and i'm very happy with the results. Thanks to Megan Berry for claiming a few minutes of fame by modelling the new and improved shirt!
