Have you ever torn up a t-shirt to make a halter or tank top?
Have you ever torn up a t-shirt to make a halter or tank top? I’ve seen several of these on Pinterest and have meant to try my hand at making one. When I stumbled upon this mesh model, I just new that it HAD to be a tie-dyed t-shirt, torn and tied in the back with denim jeans. It would look so cute with cut-off shorts, so that may be my next project.
This is a Womenstuff Hunt prize, so I didn’t spend a lot of time with details. I may do another one with edge seams and more shadows to give it dimension. The hunt runs from April 1st (no joke) to the 30th. That sounds like a lot of time but there are well over a hundred stores, so you can hunt a handful of stores each day and never run out!
“Daisies” was inspired purely by the mesh model used to make this top. The shape of the front panels reminded me of flower petals and it just screamed “TinRoof” to me… so I bought it. The fabric is a breezy linen in six colors, though the black and white are actually my favorites. They go with anything!
In addition to the fabric texture, the buttons and the trim have also been customized.
*** A special color of this top can also be found hidden in the TinRoof main store for the Women’s Stuff Hunt until Aug 31st. ***
Dragonflies and summer just go hand in hand, if you ask me…
Dragonflies and summer just go hand in hand, if you ask me… along with cicadas and June bugs, but they aren’t as pretty to put on a top to wear.
These beautiful insects are a symbol of spiritual awakening in some parts of the world, and they are feared in others. I personally consider them to be a sign that I have walked outside far enough into nature, and slowed down far enough, to notice them. This is a good thing.
This strapless top donned with dragonflies is finished off with lace-covered trim and a bright bow. Pair it with your favorite cut-off shorts and you’ve got the perfect lazy summer outfit.
The box includes 5 standard sizes, which are classic mesh. It also includes several “fitmesh” sizes that are compatible with currently popular mesh bodies including:
New as of last night “Toasty” mesh sweater with color-change HUD. Eight cheerful but winter-y colors make it very versatile.
Have you ever gotten tired in RL so you took a seat in SL? Well the other day I got cold in RL… so I made a sweater in SL! Wearing it invokes all the warm, snuggly, cozy feelings that you would expect when wearing a soft, oversized pullover… almost like a blanket, but one you can wear.
The quote on the back of this t-shirt is by a Greek woman that saved a refugee from drowning in the ocean. She received thanks from people all over the world, but she said that she doesn’t think she did anything out of the ordinary and would hope that everyone else would have done the same thing. In contrast to the man that allowed over 70 refugees to suffocate in the back of his truck, I think she is amazing and I, too, wish that everyone in the world were like her.
If you’ve been watching the news reports about refugees scattering all across the world, seeking safety, you have undoubtedly seen a mixed bag of reactions to their migration. Some countries have build barriers to keep them out, while others have welcomed them in; some people have taken advantage of them and even attacked them, while others have fed them and given them shelter.

Three colors of this t-shirt are available for free at my in-world store, on marketplace, and in the TGIF section outside Blacklace. The vendors may request 1L but then they return it to you afterwards. If they do not, please let me know. The shirts are mesh in standard sizes and I am wearing it over the Maitreya Lara mesh body in the photo.
