Ok...  so, I'm walking through Macy's and I see this really cool, striped tank top- nothing really elaborate or anything (I just really like stripes).  I try it on, and it's still cool.  So I look at the tag- $20!!!  I dunno if that generally counts as a lot, but for a shirt???  Not cool.  No way am I spending that much on something I could make myself.  So I did (Out of a shirt I used in a mime costume one Halloween- and the matching shirt my sister used, which got her all mad at me).  It's not my first recon, but it's the first time I actually went into a project knowing what I wanted and had to seek out the right material rather than simply taking something I had and fixing it up a bit.

Anyway...  without further ado (sadly I only managed one good picture):



Well...  there it is.  Any feedback is much appreciated.
