An RBG Memorial T-Shirt

 

 Hello Refashion Co-op. I'm sure you have heard of Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death. Over my lifetime I have enjoyed things like school sports, having my own bank account, signing a lease agreement by myself... you get the idea. I decided to honor RBG with one of my favorite things; a t-shirt refashion.

I started with a back t-shirt my husband didn't want. It is a plain men's large.

I added some white lace at the neck. It is the widest lace I had. It is a quick and easy imitation of RBG's dissent collar.

I also used some smaller trim to decorate my back Converse sneakers.


 I love how they turned out, I would wear them anywhere and everywhere. And I probably will. Thanks for reading along, for more pictures and details go to I Can Work With That.

Yep, T-Shirt (& shoes) quite a good and nice 'RBG-style'.

The loss of RBG really makes one swallow very hard. I quite liked and admired this most charming of 'tough cookie' despite me just being an Australian resident!
Her stern and fair reaction* to the story of a man in problems as a single parent and due to his gender seemingly NOT qualifying for government support bowled me over in laughter in my TV-chair. I immediately had aaall thumbs (+ toes ;-) ! ) up and even my rather 'stubborn calm' hubby joined in doing the same. For THIS I thank her additionally/seperate ;-) :-D !
In admiration for this Lady: right during the TV documentation I worked her beautiful feather-collar rather into a crown for her (in my mind \../ !)
Very very sad time death struck her (sigh!)

* summary of hers was approx.: "It's about the fairness concerning his job/situation NOT about the gender!"
THAT's what I call fair and not only being a single minded strict feminist advocate. Mind you the latter sadly just provided/provides (?) muuuch more 'fighting grounds'

Hi and thanks for the comment. I agree she was one tough cookie. And so very brave.

... and she very likely (and not only in my mind alone) had an invisible "P" added in front of all her other capital letters revering to her official name(s): "P" for POWERHOUSE-RBG ;-).

... too sad we couldn't slide her through a copying machine to have more of her kind /..\
