Another one of my reconstructed Tees. After inking in the design, I handpainted the pretty mermaid using a watercolor technique and my acrylics. Again I took in the sides and shorten the tee to be more flattering to the female shape. The shirt is my design, however the mermaid herself is from a book I bought many years ago(20+) and unfortunately the title page is missing and I no longer know the ladies name. Whoever you are...thank you!

Gather the large circle from that piece and fit it to your neckline. On many of my tees I also paint the ruffle which gives it a nice accent. Have fun. This would be a great project for a young girl.

Lesliebee writes: Wow! I love it. Is your ruffle only on the front neckline? You have inspired me, I want to make one with a ruffle that goes all the way around the neckline. Great job!
