Generation T: 108 Ways to Transform a T-Shirt

My summer wardrobe is usually tank tops and shorts (or skirts), and when fall rolls around, I have a tendency to start pulling out the t-shirts. Although a fantastic wardrobe staple, sometimes one's closet can become a bit...overwhelmed with t-shirts that all look the same. If you're like me and you have a zillion of these taking up space (and not being worn!) then try refashioning them!

The best thing about refashioning t-shirts is that there is very little risk involved. If you're unlikely to wear the shirt anyway, you won't feel too bad if something goes awry. With 108 ideas in this book, you're bound to find more than one you like.

This book is really fun and has cute illustrations, as well as photographs. Most of the ideas come with alternate ways to try it if it's not exactly your cup of tea or if your particular shirt doesn't work. 

The text is funny and written in a joking fashion, but you can tell the author loves refashioning shirts. Some ideas are great (I'll show one off on Thursday!) and some are perhaps...unrealistic (t-shirt bikini I'm looking at you!). That being said, I challenge any sewist to read this book and not come away with a handful of things that you can't wait to try immediately!
