Threadless "Liberty" Reconstruction

Oh, Threadless. How I love thee. I've been absolutely drooling over this shirt for ages, and a couple months ago (time flies!) they had a 5$ tee sale... and I had to get it! By the time I was ready to order, they had only 3XL. I ordered two--one for me!--and waited impatiently for their arrival.

These are so amazing. First, the name "Liberty" is fantastic--we all know I go for that stuff. :) The color is unusual for a Threadless shirt, and I really like it! And, of course, the print. I lovelovelove it. The bird glows in the dark, too! How awesome is that?

Anyway, I resized one for me, because I wanted just a regular tee, and then made the second one into this. It has a ruched bust, a super long cut, and capped sleeve-style straps.

So. It's spring here! I'm suddenly going to become overwhelmingly busy for the next few months (I have three jobs this summer!), so if I'm not around much... that will be why! I'm going to try my very hardest to at least not neglect my shop, and when I update that I'll try to post here as well. Bear with me, and know I'll be back to posting regularly this fall!


  1. Looks great. Three summer jobs?!? What are you doing? I thought I was busy last year working one job and doing an internship. I hope things go great for you~

  2. Thank you!!

    Haha, yeah, but they're all part-time--you were probably just as busy (and I've heard that being an intern is -really- hard because of always being the gofer). I'm guiding horseback rides 3 mornings a week, painting wildfire-protection sprinkler system pipes, and cleaning cabins.

    Makes you miss those carefree childhood summer days, doesn't it?

  3. Cool shirt - GREAT job on remaking it. You're a master seamstress.

  4. Aw, thank you, Rick! That really means a lot to me!

    (I checked out your blog, and wow-- you're extremely talented!)

  5. OMG your so creative! My sewing machine just can't handle jersey fabrics and neither can I XD

    Your summer seems so action packed!

    Good luck ^^

  6. Hey! Thanks for becoming a follower of my blog. I am honestly, truly honored.

    And thank you for your very kind words.

    Stay tooned!


  7. Thank you so much, Naka! That's really sweet of you. I love the flexibility jersey knits give me--but my serger saves my sanity every time. ^_^ I don't know how I'd make do otherwise!

    & Rick, you are very welcome! I'm excited to read more from you. :)

  8. At least your jobs sound like fun :) My job hasn't started yet so I'm just sitting around the house being bored (I should be sewing, but I'm not feeling very inspired at the moment).


I love hearing from people! Feel free to leave thoughts, questions, etc. Thanks, dolls!
