I was inspired by rostitchery's reconned t-shirt into a wrap top. 
So I decided to try it myself. 

I think this exactly what I need more of in my wardrobe. 
I have tanks that I feel too revealing in and this gives me just the right coverage.
Just what this curvy girl needs! 

I started with a Men's 2X T-shirt in brown.

Finished Shirt--does anyone know how to make the armholes not so gape-y?*  Besides a breast reduction?   Wink

And the whole outfit

* Thanks again rostichery, I read your reply and did a little searching around and found this site that explains how to fix gap-yness in knits.  The picture is exactly where I need a bust dart.  http://www.uniquetechniques.com/files/gaping_necklines.pdf

fantastic!  i like yours better than mine!

the armholes gape because the bust dart is rotated into the armscye for a t-shirt draft, and then left unsewn.  so you either need to sew the dart, or ease the armscye.  either way, i think you will be pleased with the fit, it gives nice shaping and a girl with curves shouldn't hide her shape.  Smiley

Good job, chickadee!  Yes, bust darts are the things that save many tops from the horrible fit we get from ready-to-wear.  I'm so glad that I learned about them.  I feared doing darts at first, thinking it would showcase my bust.  Then I realized that leaving the house showcases my bust.  LOL  After seeing this, I need to make one too.  I think it's a great look!
