<p>Brilliant! I got a bloody huge Finisher t-shirt at my half-marathon... Now I can actually wear it in public! I'm definitely hemming, though.</p>
I was at your blog earlier as i was doing a mass online search of up cycled projects for shirts and i decided against doing one of these as i had done a few to no avail but having found some larger shirts and your post again i'm inspired to give it another go!

The back looks great! You should include a picture from the back in this instructable. Nice to see other people's pics.
Great tutorial! I just did it in 15 minutes! <br> <br>I bought a plain black T shirt (Men's Medium) from Goodwill, diluted some bleach and splattered it on, washed and dryed it (with 2 softener sheets) and then made a tank top using this tutorial! <br> <br>Fits perfect, and is super soft. Thanks!
Love it....have you been to Thailand? I used to live there
Great success! This shirt was bloody HUGE to start out with!
