1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Quickie recon: fitted, no-sew, off-the-shoulder SOUNDCLASH shirt (3 images) on: March 18, 2006 02:42:56 PM
This shirt was too big on me, but I loved the design at the bottom front of the shirt.  I was going to make it more fitted by cutting some ties into the back, but was a little hazy and tired this morning and ended up snipping on the side instead of the center back.  I freaked out because my sewing machine took a fatal bite and I had no way of sewing up the sides.

The best accident happened; I laid one of my good-fitting camis on top of the shirt (lining up the bottoms of both shirts) and cut the tee the same shape up to the armpit.  Then I cut at a right angle to the outside, leaving a wide band like an off-the-shoulder top.  I turned the shirt inside out, lined up the sides and poked holes through the front and back every inch or so.  I cut ribbon-width strings out of the excess and threaded them through the holes in each side.  They are knotted under the "sleeve" and double-knotted at the bottom.  The top is not hemmed and falls neatly and naturally near the sternum.  I LOVE NO-SEWS.

Here 'tis, with a black cami underneath (I can totally wear it without, as well):
