T-shirts Re-make? Create? Print?

Hi, the other day, I asked my husband to send me clothes, I don't know why (and he said he doesn't know why, either...), but he sent me winter clothes and Tass's baby wears...
I said just "clothes", but why!
How can I survive in this humid and hot summer with winter clothes??? lol

So I bought reasonable plain T-shirts a lot and did "re-make(?)" them!

Here is a black T-shirt and my favourite one!
I printed antique postcard on iron print paper and put it on with laces and button!
I sew them very roughly with zig-zag stitch, so once I washed this, the edges will look more used and I will like it more!

Here are what we bought, includes mum's T-shirts at Uniqro.

Here is a Beige one, I also like this! A photo is a bit lighter, IRL it's a bit more darker and nice and chic!

This one, I printed French postcard and added lace and button! lovely, isn't it?!

And this one... I printed Lilly of the valley, though it didn't show up much, I think.
I don't know if they will be fine once I washed, will see!
I also sew on lace and some buttons.

Here are for mum. My mum does Hula Dance, so they are for her lesson clothes!
Mum's class mate asked me to print some for her, too. hahaha
I thought this would probably happen!

Of course, I asked my husband to send me SUMMER clothes!! LOL

I think I will show you some progress of my WIP on the next post!
Take care and happy stitching!

Love those re-created t-shirts! Very creative. Yes, I think men need very specific instructions. I have to use lots of words with my BF.

Those T-Shirts are wonderful! You are so creative Yuko!

Nancy said...

Your t-shirts are lovely Yuko! You are so talented and have such good ideas. Your mum will enjoy her Hawaiian t-shirts while doing the Hula won't she?

Ginny said...

These are lovely! You're very clever to come up with this way of dressing up a plain t-shirt.

Rowyn said...

Gorgeous T-shirts. My husband makes T-shirts like that occasionally (only not pretty like yours!).

Thank you for the beautiful pinkeep I won in your giveaway, and the lovely extras. It made my day!

Just like a man to not even think about the season when you asked for clothes. It is very hot here, often 100 degrees now. Your t-shirts look lovely and cool. I ought to make some for me and my daughter to keep cool this summer!

Anna said...

Lovely those t-shirts , you are creative !!!!

CindyMae said...

Those are great! I have used that iron on print paper before but did not have very good luck with it as it seemed to wash off after the first wash or two. Any tips?

jojo said...

Cool!
Black-T is so cute.
Iron print paper is useful,I want to try it.

Tammy said...

Men! Your shirts are SO pretty!

Isabelle said...

Very nice idea. I particularly like the beige one and the one with the funny dog.
Well done Yuko !

Maren said...

LOL, yeah. That sounds like a husband.

You bounced by nicely with all those t-shirts, though. Good job! Very creative!

Susan said...

Wow! You did an amazing job transforming your t-shirts. You should sell them in your etsy store! I bet they'd sell like hot cakes!

Wali said...

"les bâtards" ? Funny!!! I live near Trouville in France. Congratulations for all you make !

I love what you have done with these shirts Yuko.
You have turned them into something so special.
I especially like the one with the Lily of the Valley.
