So I've been wanting a shirt to wear with this black tie w/ white pinstripes that I have (used to be my mum's) but I didn't have any that were cool enough to match it.  I was digging through my brothers' old clothes, once again, and found this white pinstripe shirt that had a weird fit to it.  It's been sitting in my room, waiting to be fixed but I didn't have a sewing machine until about 3 days ago!

so, I added a bit of shaping and made the fit better, shortened the sleeves, and now it is wearable.



shaping (please tell me that that is in fact, what it is called.):


without the tie:


Oh, and I added a felt heart on the pocket.  (btw, the pocket is on my left boob.)


this was my first ever sewing-machine project (minus the apron i made back in grade 8 in home ec.)

thanks for looking!

I love this!  I have a button-down shirt I've been saving until I could figure out what to do with it--I think I just did!

It fits really well. The heart is a nice touch.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

The connotations wearing my nerves thin
Could it be semantics generating the mess we're in?
I understand that language breeds stereotype
But what's the explanation for the malice, for the spite?
