T-shirt Reconstruction: XL tee to fitted ladies tee with fun striped sleeves!

Here is the original.  I wish I had taken a picture of it on me so you could see how I was swimming in it, but I didn't.  Anyways, it's too big to be cute on me, so I whipped out my trusty Ninja Turtles t-shirt that fits perfectly and used it as a guide.  I folded in the sleeves in order to get the shape I needed without sleeves, making sure to line up the neck holes on the two shirts.  After cutting it it looked like this.
I didn't like the advertising on the back.  No offense to Sprint or anything, but I didn't want them on my shirt!  So I cut it out and added a blue stripe from a different t-shirt that I cut up.  So now I have a blue stripe across my back.
I used the sleeves from my Ninja Turtle's t-shirt as a guide for cutting down the original sleeves too.  Sprint had made their mark on one of the sleeves as well, so I had to do something about that.  I lined up my two sleeves folded out flat and cut them both together to remove the Sprint logo.  I then used these cut out pieces as a pattern to cut out two matching segments from the blue t-shirt and sewed them back together.  Make sure to allow for some seam allowance when you do stuff like this so that it returns to its original shape.
Here are my two sleeves after I sewed the underarm seam back together.  I actually sewed these wrong and had to rip them out and fix them once.  Just part of the process!

I then placed them back into the arm holes and here you have it...a way cooler more flattering t-shirt.  The web cam flips the image so..."Royals" looks backwards.

  3. Over the years there have been many different Michael Kors Outlet Store launched with some being more successful than others. Even the Michael Kors Outlet that did not reach the dizzying heights of success as some of Michael Kors's best sellers were still very, very well made leather handbags. One such Michael Kors Outlet Store Online that became a fashion icon was the Michael Kors Wristlet Sale.

    L’extérieur de ce fourre-tout Michael Kors est un cuir métallisé de laiton froncé et froncé. Si vous connaissez les sacs à main Michael Kors, vous savez que ce cuir sera doux et souple. Les deux grandes poignées supérieures sont attachées au sac avec quelques centimètres de chaînes dorées, puis les moitiés supérieures des bretelles présentent le même cuir couleur laiton.
