I haven't hemmed the top or bottom yet, and I might even end up trimming a little from the triangular portion on the bottom...it's almost too asymmetrical I think, but I do like how it turned out.

Mostly just freehand.  The printed portion at the top was a stretchy kind of fabric so I wrapped it around my chest like a tube top and cut it to fit snugly.  Then added a ruched area with the tie to the front after finding this website on how to: http://www.limehippo.com/runched-shirt.html
The bottom section was also a stretchy fabric and I folded it to make a triangle shape and held it up to approximately where the tube top portion would end (to decide on what length to cut it)...
I didn't use any elastic because the tube top portion was snug enough to give a little support for *the girls*...but I did gather the bottom section in a few areas to make it fit together a little smoother when I seamed the two together.  I hope that made sense:)

very cool, asymmetrical styles are great for us curvier gals, it causes the eye to move and not stay focused on one spot! Great job!
