PostSubject: T-shirt Modification Help/Ideas..!   Sun Sep 07, 2008 9:45 am

I wanted to buy this Disturbed t-shirt for the concert in October....




The problem with it, is that it doesn’t come in a Skinny Tee. I hate wearing guys t-shirts like this, id live to show my curves and my cleavage, so I was thinking about modifying it. But need some ideas....

I was thinking about doing a corset design on the back, attaching some d-rings etc. But im not sure what to do about the front, I hate to cover up my entire chest - so what can you lovely people recommend for me??

Any help appreciated..!

ok first I have to tell you that a Disturbed show is going to be rough as hell so be ready for it, you seemed to be cought unaware at the Serj show so a heads up for this one is a good idea

Also I'm no good at the DIY things so I just youtube searched this

Oh god I know Endless, ive watched some live youtbue shows of them. Gona wear some scruffy clothes and kick ass boots so no one can stand on my feet. Told my sister-in-law about it as well, so I think were both ready for the crowd.

I dont want to cut the t-shirt because its costing me £11.99. I just want to make adjustments at the front. But thanx for looking for me!

Isn't it somewhat taboo to wear the band tee shirt to the concert? But either way, you can sew it in on the inside to help give it some shape. What you can do is to turn the shirt inside out and pin in the new seams (don't forget to add the sleeve or else it will look really weird).

I know its taboo but plenty of people still do it regardless. I just like the t-shirt looks kool.

If you buy a row of grometted tape (looks like this---> http://ny-image2.etsy.com/il_430xN.20629118.jpg ) it will help A LOT with trying to corset-up the back. Just sew two lines of it, feed the ribbon through-- done. I do it to a lot of my shirts.

As far as the front goes though... humm.. that is tricker. The "Disturbed" word is only an inch or so from the collar, so removing the collar and hemming isn't really an option. I think you may be out of luck on that one... Embarassed

Corsetting the back/sides is a GREAT idea though-- it will add definition and spice it up a bit. Wink

(And have a BLAST!!! headbang)

I was about to suggest that. Looks like Akasha beat me to it, clap smart girl.

Now, to slim the shirt up a bit, you could perhaps wash it in hot water a few times to "shrink it a bit", or sew a few darts on the sides.

Im going to the Manchester Apollo one on 6th Oct. Really looking forward to it.

With the corset thing, I've already got attachable d-ring thingies just need a good sewing machine.

I went to go see then when they were here. You won't be disappointed Vampira. Yes, don't wear your best or most expensive clothing. The crowd is very rowdy and we don't want you to ruin your best clothes. Wink

Just watch yourself if you're going down the front bud. I got my stomach badly kicked at a Damned gig - it looked horrendous and hurt like Hell! I hasten to add that the lovely bassist Stu offered to kick the perpetrator to death for me but I took the law into my own hands and smacked him across the face with my riding crop. I'd love to see how he explained that mark to his partner when he got home!

I'm sure you'll have a great time.
Be careful out there.This is what I did to one of my old Sanhain shirts.I'm not sure if it's your style but all the instrutctions are there and it's accually pretty easy to do.

Turn the top inside out, pull the fabric a bit at the sides and safety pin them down.

No sew!!!
