cute! as soon as I saw the first I thought it might be fun to modify it a tiny bit and make the sleeves a different color, and attach little spagetti straps over top, make it look like you're wearing a cute little tank over a tee.. i'm not entirely sure it would work,but could be very fun!

What a flattering pattern!  I love the lime green and black one...great for summer! The crossover detail is a nice touch--was it easy or not?

it is pretty easy to make.  I actually morphed the pattern.  It's a 16 bodice, w/ an 18 - 22 flared on the back and front.  I hate too close fitting shirts.  so this was great.

I actually have a friend who wants me to make her a shirt like these.  Which I'll have to adapt more, being she's a bit bigger then me. Smiley
