So.. while browsing the forum, I saw mckincrispy's shirring tutorial and I wanted to try it... so after a lovely trip to JoAnn Fabrics where it took me forever to find the elastic thread.. and too much time spent winding bobbins and trying to make my machine want to cooperate.. I finally ended up with this shirt.
I was getting tattooed on my shoulders today, and I couldn't find any of my halter tops, so I figured I could just maybe whip one of these out... yeah... Needless to say, after a few hours, I ended up with a shirt, and I wore it today.. and I'm actually quite pleased with it. I even got a compliment from the tattoo guy!
(please excuse my messy messy room!)
Classic mirror shot.. lol
Closer view of shirring:
I also made an Irish shirt for St. Patty's day, since I wanted something open for my tat... The fabric was flannel, so it was super comfy, but was a bit bulkier. I like it anyways...
