Hows that for an imaginative title?
The blue bits are from a top i bought because it was in the sale rail and it was huge and i liked the colour. The stripy bits are from (surprise surprise) 1/2 an old pillowcase, i dont really know what happened to the other half though...


http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/32281pillowcase_top2.jpg
The pillowcase had some wierd rusty stains on it that wouldnt come off, but you cant really see them (hopefuly). And there are white chalk marks from when i was making it on the top.

The pillowcase wasn't wide enough to accomodate my hips, so i made these little triangles out of some leftovers. (more chalk lines)

Detail of the little pink heart shaped buttons i sewed on the top (they came from some knickers!  Grin) It needed something to link the top with the bottom , else it looked too seprate.
I hope you like it, it's the most professional looking recon I've done so far. I may actualy be able to wear it out  Shocked!
The End.

fantastic -- and so perfectly timed for summer.  it was good luck that the pillow case wasn't wide enough at the hips because i think your alteration is a very cute touch!

you know the more i look on this board, the more i'm starting to suspect that we redheads are inherent craftsters.  have you noticed?  quite a lot of us floating around on here...

I LOVE this! I saw a shirt with a similar theme a while back, and I wanted one so bad. This is even cuter and a great idea!
