This week, I bring you the custom undie, care of an amazing customer, A., who agreed to let me photograph the process for you, dear Reader! :) A. took the plunge, emailed me just after Christmas asking about whether she could send me some tshirts to make undies out of. Could she ever! :) See below the amazing transformation of A.’s beloved tshirts. :)
A. and I emailed about whether to use the front or back of each shirt for the front or back of the undies (if it ever seems like it could get confusing, I include photos during the process to help clarify).
With every customer, I encourage them to buy a pair in their size or use a tshirt for a trial pair before I go past the point-of-no-return just to make sure we’ve got the fit down pat before I cut into your most sentimental of tshirts. A. had a Maui tshirt that we used first. She was super pleased with the results so I had the green light to cut into the rest of her shirts (5 in all!).
I’m so grateful to A. for letting me photograph the process. It was so much fun to see which tshirts meant a lot to her, and cool to help her clean out her tshirt drawer and replenish her undie drawer!
Thank you, A.!
