From some old sleeveless (mens) T-shirts, I made this batwing sleeved shirt. I had to cut up to of the old T-shirt because I needed the width at the top, for the sleeves. I painted the branches and roots on after putting the shirt together, using fabric paint that comes in a little jar. There was no real plan involved there (I had never used that stuff before), I just took the brush and made it up as I went along. I’m rather pleased with the result, though.
