OK, so I have tickets for Jimmy Buffett in August, and I made a shirt to wear to it. 



Constructive criticism, please?  I've never sewn a shirt before.

BTW, please forgive my braless self - my strapless bra is somewhere under Mt. Laundry - I swear I won't be wearing it to the concert that way!  lol

If I can't be my own, I'd feel better dead.

I'm not that curvacious, but I do have a pretty good chest and have sewn before. If that cloth has any strech at all, I would shorten the tie a little bit. That way, it will give more support, and you won't have worrysome fabric sagging problems. Other then that, it looks fab on you! Way to sew your own shirt. Have fun at the concert!

I would agree with stellato_escuro about the tie, but other than that, it is a cute shirt!  Especially for making a shirt for the first time.  Did you use a pattern or make it up yourself?  I really love the tie-dye tropical flower print, perfect for Jimmy Buffett in August   Cheesy  Two thumbs up!

Thanks!  It just ties at the neck - I'll make sure to tie it tighter when I wear it.  I just made it up as I went - there was no pattern. I found the fabric years ago, and loved it, but had no idea what I was going to use it for.  I finally found a use for it!
