Such a cutie! This is a new tshirt I purchased that I have embellished.The design is based on a drawing of glands that I found in a zoology textbook. The design is worked in reverse applique, where I put layers of fabric under the tshirt, sew the design, then cut through the layers to reveal the fabric underneath. All stitching is done by hand.

I just love the detailing in this tshirt: it has elasticized gathered cap sleeves, a scoop neck (always flattering!), a few little gathers just at the bustline, and a little keyhole back, secured with a button.

The shirt is made of 100% cotton, and the appliqued recycled fabric is also tshirt material, except for the orange fabric, which has a wonderful suede texture to it. The thread I used is doubled-up brilliant blue embroidery floss. Also notice the 2 additional mini-glands that I put on the shoulders. As always, The "Toolgrrl" screenprinted tag is hand-sewn into the back.

Bust: 30" (unstretched)
Length (Shoulder to hem): 25"

Because I rely on thrift stores & surplus outlets for my garments, I rarely have 2 of the same kind. When I am deciding how to alter each piece, I respond to each garment's characteristics, so the end result is a unique, one of a kind creation. I take great pride in my work, and I uphold a high level of craftsmanship. I want my customers to be satisfied!

I recommend hand-washing my garments in cold water & laying them flat to dry.

If you have any questions, or would like more pictures, please let me know!
