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  Grin

I love this top!  You made it up yourself yes?  I love the fabric and everything.  Does it have a side zip? It doesn't look like a jersey/knit.  Did you strategically place the straps so that you can wear a bra?

Very pretty. I am big busted so I know how difficult it is to buy things the right size in that area. It looks wonderful.

Thanks guys!! I'm going to finish fixing a couple things today after i do my homework -sigh- (i already moved the straps) and then i'll post the new pics when i post the tute!

ingysoup- It doesn't have a zipper, but adding one on wouldn't be a bad idea... it's quite the struggle to get on and take off. it's not knit, it more cotton/polyester, just normal fabric. and no i didn't place the straps like that, it was just luck Grin
