Ok, so... yeah. haha i was inspired by this http://www.anthropologie.com/jump.jsp?itemID=13314&itemType=PRODUCT&iMainCat=9&iSubCat=1490&previous=1
and then i messed up the back. (but i love the front!) i still have to sew a few hems down so they stop popping up, and it was... an interesting process. haha i don't even really know what i did. i'm going to fix the back to move the straps farther apart and more gathered, but here it is!
feedback is greatly appreciated
EDIT: this is the new back. you can see that the front didn't really change.
(this pic isn't to show that i haven't shaved in a while, it's to show that under the armpit it kind of dips down.)
And! dun dun dun! What you've been asking for!
alrighty now. I think i had like... a yard and a quarter or so of fabric (i'm not sure, it was a remnant.) but... just guess. you don't need a ton.
ok so can you see this writing? long story short it's through the back of the paper. hope you can see it.
cut out your material [the writing on this paper says "under bust measure +2 in." "from under bust to bottom of shirt" "hipish measure(where you want it to fall)" "cut more on dotted line: bust measurement to under bust measure" "strap length: about 14-16 in. for me" "about 5 and 1/2 in."]
join seams on big chunck and bust chunck
gather big chunck in two places at top if you want, like shown on my shirt (under bust)
cut and attach straps. where the join the shirt is gathered.
[the writing here says: "pin on straps here" "Pin smaller than strap" "my attempt to show that straps are gathered"]
does this make sense?
feel free to ask any questions
you guys better make it
