So when my friend and I heard about this challenge we went to the thrift store and found this flannel shirt


We figured it was pretty ugly so I bought it.  I think it was like, 2 dollars.

Now it's this...


There are a few pintucks under the band, they're kinda hard to see though.

So that's it!  Let me know what you think please.  Thanks!

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

Wow you really transformed that shirt.  The babydoll top is soooo much better looking and you look great in it.

That's really adorable.
I actually almost bought a top kind of like that from delias (I think) but I did't want to spend $29.50 on it.
Maybe i'll try to make one...

OoooooOOOoooh!  So cute!  The empire waist is so flattering to the bust and tummy.  (Not that a tiny girl like you needs it, I was thinking of my own ehem... generous proportions.)  It looks great and the dark colors make a summer-style top fall/winter friendly.

Did you use buttons or a zipper in the back or sides?  Or is it a pullover that gets cinched with the button at the waist?

If you made this without buttons or a zipper, you will be my new hero, because only somewhat fitted things are flattering on me - yet I still lack the seamstress skills to construct zippers and button plackets.

Actually there are not zippers or buttons.  It's a pullover that's a little looser in the back.  The button on the waist is just kinda there, I thought it looked pretty Smiley
