I have finally found a pattern that I can call a TNT t-shirt. It too less than an hour to stitch up. In the beginning, I added a "cheater" FBA by adding 2" to the center front and gradually "trued" it to the side seam. Big mistake. It looked horrible. I woulnd up removing that 2" as well as another 2" to give it more of a "high/low" look. Now I absolutely love it.
This was my wearable muslin. I used Slinky that's been in my stash forever! It may not look like much to you but I'm going to be able to pair this with so many skirts. If I change the jewelry and shoes I can totally change how this top will look. I've already made it using Pleather as the front overlay--In black of course! Here I'm wearing it with the leather skirt I refashioned either earlier is year or late last year. I snapped these photos as I was running out to church this morning. I've got to work on getting better photos with my tripod!
I scored the super cute shoes at Payless for a mere $14. Faye says I'm everyday fabulous which means I don't need designer goods to look AWESOME. Thank you Faye!
BTW please click on this link and tell me whether something is missing. Based on the instructions, I don't think that would help me find the grain at all. I know what she means but I've been sewing for a billion years and can easily recognize the lengthwise and crosswise grain. I think it might be totally misleading to a beginning sewist!
