Open-work ‘Om’ T-shirt

‘Pin-Up,’ #11, Generation T
Project #11, “Pin-Up,” from Generation T: 108 Ways to Transform a T-Shirt by Megan Nicolay (Workman Publishing, 2006), originally featured safety pins holding the shirt together at the shoulders and sleeves. I substituted strips of open-work trim.

The shirt I used had been tie-dyed and batiked in shades of blue and burgundy with a white Om symbol on the front. My next step, after this photo was taken, was to cut the shirt at the bottom edge of the scalloping pattern and insert another panel of the open-work trim.
