1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re-worked/ratted T-shirt IMG Heavy on: April 03, 2007 03:02:38 PM
Ok guys

I am sooo pleased with this.

My partner and I go to bike rallies called rat and survival, rat bikes are maintained by the owners with whatever they can find, manufacture or make fit.

They take on a life of their own.  http://ratbike.org

While at last year's rally I rather liked one of their T-shirt designs, however it only came in a mens medium, and I'm rather small.

So what does a girl do......

Go away, think about it, buy the shirt anyway and then alter it till she's happy  Wink

Before:


Front after (my manequin is a little bustier than I, so it doesn't look this tight on me):




Back with the major change:
2  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / New Look 6203 on: February 13, 2007 03:00:25 AM
I have just made an oriental look top from this pattern

I am pleased with the outcome

front: http://tkfiles.storage.msn.com/x1p_aizlw0omaYOuN5GK6_V7DojrVQhgS-r22913o9lZziuQGtTZOCiYpHaelSY5GjiQroE3mP5enqvUM4-ytV_jvtly8h0rY_EYUBCZ7hn_WA

back: http://tkfiles.storage.msn.com/x1p_aizlw0omaYOuN5GK6_V7C8n9_h6vNx5M3cd9tYhY1Y6GLjv-D2Eeuo3wpFY5cAqsiRBlvlI0JxYQiSiWK0mKKCWS1BWPxcDxcLsg62CsZ4

When I purchased the pattern I had not seen the back of the envelope and hadn't realised it had a tie back, which I don't think quite goes with the style of the front.  The front sections joining the opening at the left shoulder were a bit fiddly, but with a little thought and rearranging were fixed

I would recommend this pattern it is an easy way to get a good look.

However I would make changes to eliminate the tie back.
