From using fellow Craftster Rostitchery's one-seam convertible dress tut I made an infinity-dress style top (page 19 of http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=104089.0 ).  At the time, I didn't account for just HOW BIG my belly would get, so I had to make another top for Happy Hour (virgin drinks for me) a few weeks ago.  I didn't have enough fabric to make the super-long straps, so I just went with a boob tube and a modified circle skirt that's longer in the front to make this top.  You like??
Here's the front:
 

The back:


The side (the money shot...  Wink ):


And the shirt placed front-down so you can see how much longer the front "skirt" is than the back:

yeah, yeah, the edges are all frayed, but I didn't bother hemming them bc the boob tube hugs the hoo-haas a little *too* much, and I don't think I'll be squeezing into this again in the next month and a half anyways.   Wink

*BTW, the color of the shirt (kind of a goldish tan) is closer to that shown on me rather than that last washed-out pic*
Thanks for looking!!

Greetings'
I vote definitely sexy and adorable at the same time.
Even though I won't be having any more babies I am trying to control a Grandma pouch. This would be great for those "I can no longer hold my belly in" days.
Great Job!
PEACE!

 You look so cute! It flatters your shape very nicely, and the color looks gret on you as well  Smiley

Thanks for the great and witty comments!
ZaftigMomma, I'll keep my fingers crossed for you, too!!
Creativemsb, lol!  The nice thing about this top is that you can cut it longer in the front and just keep trimming the edge until you get it to hang evenly front-to-back - no one will ever know you have a "grandma pouch" (I love that term, btw).   Wink  I think it (the circle-skirt approach) is much more flattering for us ladies with tummies (I already had a tummy to start with) than a tube top with more of a narrow A-line cut that can cling to the WRONG places. 
thanks again-
