Classic "Boyfriend's Old T-Shirt" Recon

So, I've been away for a while; but I have damned good excuses!
Damned good personal excuses that I don't feel the need to delve into on the internet.

I do feel the need to show of my newest crafty venture, however. Since DS's second birthday, I have not been superbly active craft-wise. I have missed posting a couple things because of lack of camera, but I hope to remedy that soon enough.

On to tonight's creation!
My boyfriend was getting set up to clean and restring his guitar, and couldn't find his cleaning cloth. He cut the sleeves off of an old (read: high school, so at least 10 years ago) T-shirt that had holes and stains, but a kick-ass design on the front.
I called "punked!" and whisked it away to being it's new life as my favorite new shirt for this fall :)

Took in the sides and dropped the neck and shoudlers (they were VERY worn out), took off the hem. I reshaped the arm pits, added long (puff) sleeves out of an amazing blue jersey with orange skull print that I picked up for cheap (15% off when you finish the bolt!!!) and added a huge (HUGE, I say!!!) hood.

BF then got out the phone and took a couple pics for me :)
(no before shots, but standard men's shapeless T-shirt with an orange car and "SOULFOOD76" printed above)

Tell me what you think!
