Hey everybody, I was bored this morning and decided to make a pretty shirt.
I hope you all like it. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v284/fogtom/1a8e29dc.jpghttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v284/fogtom/shirt018.jpg

another of sitting down.
Haha, that black thing is my cat Heraldo. He always tries to get into my pictures when I take them outside.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v284/fogtom/shirt029.jpghttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v284/fogtom/shirt041.jpg
my sister took this for me.
I know I messed up the neckline a bit, I intend on fixing it later.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v284/fogtom/shirt046.jpgTutorialhttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v284/fogtom/tutorial002.jpg
First take a wifebeater or a tank top that fits you fine but you don't wear it and then measure from the bottom of the neckline to where you want the top of the shirt to hit. cut the shirt there and then cut off the back.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v284/fogtom/tutorial003.jpg
Fold the fabric in half and then lay the top of the tank top on it.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v284/fogtom/tutorial004.jpg
cut out the fabric around it leaving a little extra around the edges, don't cut the neckline out though. Also leave about two inches of fabric on the sides of the tank top so that way it'll fit really well (rather have to make it smaller then have to add fabric) Especially if the fabric isn't all that stretchy.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v284/fogtom/tutorial005.jpg
remove the other layer of fabric so that way you only have one and cut out the neckline.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v284/fogtom/tutorial006.jpg
now take the other layer of fabric and lay the tank top on top of it. You need the tank top to measure make sure you keep the straps the right size. Cut out just a little dip type thing in the back.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v284/fogtom/sddfsdf.jpg
sew up the sides and the top of the straps.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v284/fogtom/tutorial009.jpg

after done flip the top part right side out and then put it on. Make sure that it fits. If it is too big then rip out the seams and trim away some of the fabric.
Hem the neckline.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v284/fogtom/tutorial013.jpg
now measure how long you want the bottom of the shirt to be and lay it on the fabric. Cut outwards so the bottom of the shirt flares out.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v284/fogtom/tutorial014.jpg
cut triangles the same length as the bottom of your shirt.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v284/fogtom/tutorial015.jpg
sew all the bottom of the shirt together.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v284/fogtom/tutorial016.jpg
sometimes the bottom of the triangle is longer than the shirt and if that happens just cut it.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v284/fogtom/tutorial028.jpg
now attatch the top ot the shirt to the bottom of the shirt. Sew it and then try it on to see if everything fits alright.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v284/fogtom/df.bmp
it should look something like that.
And of course, my batteries had to run out so the rest of the tutorial was done in paint shop.
Now if you decide you like the shirt without the sleeves then you can skip the next part and just hem the sleeve holes.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v284/fogtom/sleeves.bmp
These are the sleeves.
They are kind of difficult to master but you kind of just have to play around with it to get it right.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v284/fogtom/howtoattatchsleeves.bmp
after sewing the first sleeve together then hem it. Then attatch it to the shirt like it shows in the picture above. Then repeat it for the other sleeve.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v284/fogtom/shirt041.jpg
VOILA! all done.
