Scroll down, and youll find the new pics...
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I was desperat, I had nothing to wear this midsummer(Yeas, "every-body" celebrate mid-summer in Sweden). So i made myself this:

A empiretop with loooooong ribbons to lace myself up in.

...and a little tie-shirt with trumpetsleeves, to put over my shoulders when the evening arrived and it got a bit shilly. Smiley Horribel pic, Tongue Embarrassed Im sorry. I hope you can get anything out of it anyway. Roll Eyes

I made up both pattern the same time as I was sewing. Heres how I made the tie-shirt!

I cut out the back, with the middle on turn on dubbel fabric.


Then I used the folded back to made two fronts. I modefied it a bit, and kind of V-shaped the neck. I allso made those "to-knot thingies" in the bottoms. Se next pic... Cheesy


Then I cut out two triangels for the trumpetshape of the sleeves. And sew the whole thing together. Folded it and decorated it. Voila!

Hiii, I will defenetly take better and closer pics of the tops.  Grin

Olenka, great too see you again! Thanks a lot for the flattering personal words by the way! Staying creative, yeah... Lack of money and wanna have a lot creats creativity! Cheesy (but its fun to make stuff too) The set is made out of unbleach cottonjersey, wich costed me less than a dollar (translated from the swedish crown) 100cm...

Samsara: thats the very reason ties and drawstrings and similar stuff is one of my favourites... Becuase I dont have too spend soo much work of having it i perfekt size. It give it by its self.
Heres something similar of my top by the way... http://otsukaya.co.jp/TeduBigF0406.htm over the chestJust alter the length, make some (whats the english word for it? Help, anyone!) reducing? Cut in? and two sprunds over the hips. Then the spot over i: add a long tie (I made it in my own legnth:160 cm...) too the waist and  fix it there with a few handsewn stiches... Done.

If you made something like this for your selves, please let me know! Im a curious soul and would love to se it... Roll Eyes Cheesy Wink
