Live Long and Prosper

In memory of Leonard Nimoy, who passed away on Friday, I thought I would share with you a simple refashion I did a few months back but hadn't shared on the blog until now. I picked up this awesome, brand new t-shirt for a couple bucks at Goodwill, thinking my husband might wear it. Sadly, he doesn't like to broadcast his nerd-dom as loudly I do, and therefore, he never wore it. So I decided to confiscate it for myself and feminize it.

Star Trek Tee - Before

I grabbed another t-shirt that fits me well and used it as a pattern to cut the new body and sleeves. Then I sewed them back together, and that was that! A simple makeover in memory of the man who gave life to Mr. Spock.

Star Trek Tee - After

I paired my new tee with black jeans and black leather boots, in keeping with the original Star Trek uniform, plus I added a black long-sleeved tee for an extra layer of winter warmth. I also threw on some gold bangles to coordinate with the gold on the shirt.

Star Trek Tee - After

I like the fit of the new tee and the contrast of the black sleeves

Oh my goodness my husband would have lost his mind if I had found a shirt like that. He would definitely have worn it. However, I like your version. It looks great. LLAP!!!!!
