One of my favorite blogs to follow is WobiSobi's. This girl can do some amazing things with Hanes T-shirts and scissors. I'm amazingly inspired by her fearlessness when it comes to re-fashioning and restyling.
I'm a girl on a budget, but I like to have cute clothes. Since I'm not a small girl, I don't necessarily feel that comfortable in a lot of clothing designed for girls, since the clothing tends to be more fitted which makes the fact that most of her T-shirt refashions are done using men's Hanes T-shirts. And those T-shirts are cheap, so if I mess something up I just try again. No harm, no foul. Because I live in Wisconsin, which has some pretty crazy weather, I love dressing in layers so I can adapt my outfit as the temperature changes throughout the day.
That being said, I thought WobiSobi's cute 5 Minute Draped Vest #2 would be the perfect candidate for my first T-shirt refashion attempt. I apologize in advance for the low-quality iPhone photos...it was the only camera I had available at the time I got scissor happy.
I started with a plain grey Hanes T-shirt. I ordered a pack of 4 from Amazon for like $16, so my cute vest started life looking like this.
And the back is nice and simple.

I think this would look really cute with some skinny jeans and my black boots. I think I'll try that outfit out this weekend!
