Over the last few weeks I made a whole lot of recycled T-shirts. As with most stuff I make these days, these are all made entirely from recycling old garments. Most t-shirts you see out there are plain block colours or simple stripes, and don’t even fit that well. But working like this you can quickly create a great variety of interesting, unique T-shirts, and as I said about denim, there are so many T-shirts and jersey dresses and skirts around just waiting to be remade into something new.
The pattern is one I drafted myself. There are a few variations on some – for example sleeve length, unfinished flat collars on a couple, stitched together panels for some of the fronts or backs.
All screen prints shown here hand-screened by me. A couple more designs and prints can be seen on my blog.
Disclaimer: some design elements were taken from other work, but I think all are good for personal use.
I’m working on a tutorial for drafting your own personal T-shirt pattern, and then will move on to cutting and sewing instructions and so on, hopefully I will post that there soon as well.
