I do a lot of t-shirt recons, don’t I? This was once a shirt left over from when I got my advanced PADI certifications, and a blue shirt from (of course) the thrift store. I made the following modifications: cut it down to fit me, replaced the sleeves with blue puff sleeves, cut a square neck, and added contrast bands to both the neck and the bottom of the shirt. Voila! Blog post, with more information on construction, here: http://corvustristis.wordpress.com/2010/03/18/reflections-on-t-shirts-and-process/
