Hanes T-shirt got Isabelled

Here is a picture of one of my students, Isabelle. We reconstructed a t-shirt together- Isabelle chose a dark heather grey hanes t-shirt and we made it really slim in her arms and body. She randomly grapped some navy blue scrap of fabric and appliqued it on the front right side (you can't tell from this crappy pix image) with contrasting yellow thread. Then she tacked on some funky metal buttons adjacent to the applique. We put some yellow velvet elasic on the shoulder seam. The end product was some sort of hipstery vintage-sport nauticalist but overall cool T-shirt. I told her it would definitly sell at Urban Outfitters.
