So much crafting, so little time...

This is what I spent my day working on:

Tank w/shrug


Back


Plain tank


Back


Tank w/shrug buttoned on (I don't know if I like how this way looks, but it is another way to wear it)


Now for the very pic heavy tute

I started out with these two t-shirts, both size medium-ish


I then cut rectangles off the bottom of each


I put the bodice up to the bottom part to see how much I needed to take up, then prepared to gather below the boobs.


I basted in between the pins, then gathered and pinned right sides together, basted, tried the top on, the sewed.


I gathered fabric above the boobs as well, then added darts in the back to make the top fit nicely, and stitched a border over the top. (My darts came out wonky, but it still looks cool)







Then I made straps, tried on the top and pinned the straps in place, stitched them on, and added button accents.





That completes the tank.

For the shrug, I took the top part of the flower print tee, added button holes (so it can button on or be tied.


Then I cut strips from the red tee, and added a red edging to the shrug




And voila!  A shrug and tank.  I like that I can put on the shrug at work (to fit in dress code), then wear just the tank top when I'm going out and about.

Hope you like it!

Great concept -- I love the realisation of the Barbie corporate to cocktails wardrobe piece. Todah for the tute.
