OK so it's my day off and I'm SICK! So I holed up in my NEW craft room and made this baby. It's funny because we just moved in and I don't have a chair for my sewing machine yet. And it's in the basement so I lugged the damn computer chair up and down two flights of stairs to make this. Not an easy feat when you can't stop sneezing. OKay enough chitchat let's get to the pics!!









and a myspace angle for good measure haha Smiley


Alright there you go! This was my first attempt at a wrap shirt, I didn't use a pattern. I have a weird method which involves laying down the fabric on the floor and then me laying on top of it and just eyeballing it that way.. haha.
It's made out of a old baby's crib bedsheet, some old white scrub pants for the ties, amd the last of my green lace trim that I had JUST enough of. ah, kismet!

Peace Smiley

This is exactly the type of shirt I want to make, except that I am too well endowed.  I swear, I have thought of laying down on paper and being traced just like I did in 3rd grade to be Thomas Jefferson  LMAO.  Anyhow, I do not feel like, cannot afford to buy another pattern that doesn't work for me, so any hints would be helpful.  Your shirt is great!  Oh, specifically, since I have never owned a shirt like this:  how many inches/far over d you do the wrap, how does it exactly wrap, and would you think it would be too *risky* for a large breasted woman?  Thanks!

Well, I'm a really visual thinker, so I drew a diagram to kind of explain the construction of this shirt. Please excuse my crappy MS Paint skillz.

This is how the shirt would look if it didn't have sleeves and was layed out on the floor on its back, the sides unfolded. (I hope that made sense.)


Each side of the shirt wraps up to right under my boob, and kind of nestles there, teehee. the side with the hole overlaps the other side, and i pull the tie through the hole and then wrap both ties around and tie them in front.

I don't know about larger breasted women... i think it could work if you made each side longer than usual, to give some insurance against nip slips. the way i did the V was to cut the front two pieces straight across initially, then i put i on and pinned it to an appropriate length.

hope this helped!!
