Hand screen printed “My Tummy Hurts” sleeveless shirt. One of a kind, printed on a second-hand shirt.
Red muscle tank from SSI. Made in America. deadstock garment (meaning it was never sold after production- new other than me washing it after printing) 50/50 polycotton. Rib knit collar and armholes. No side seams. Very thin fabric.
flaws: there’s a seam rip in the shoulder and some seam tension and stitch breaks along the bottom hem.
tagged size: Large
Measurements: Shoulders 19”, neck 16”, chest 42”, armholes 16”, length 27.5”
note: the shirts are sourced in post-consumer ways, meaning they’re thrifted or purchased thru rag houses or vintage resellers. occasionally I get shirts from deadstock wholesalers, meaning it’s never been worn, but it isn’t the original producer isn’t selling them. This is important to me, as I don’t want to contribute to the production of more unnecessary T-shirts, and since T-shirt factories often have the worst working conditions. There’s literally so many blank shirts already in existence, so I’m printing on those instead. It’s a lot of extra work on my part, since the sizing is always different and I have to look for flaws and photograph each and every shirt individually… but I believe it to be worth the work, I hope you appreciate the unique nature of these pieces!!
