The usual story. I bought a shirt from Old Navy I loved the shape of. Made a pattern..Which was super simple. Think...Bear Skin Rug. Sooo...

How it looks before I sewed it, this is after I cut it.

After! This is way cute on. I am probably going to add something...it needs...something.

This is way to much flowers for me...

Yay for stars again! I no longer have full yards of this fabric...boo.

ACKSHUN shot....

Have not made to many things as far as clothes lately...been making alot of bags...but I am back on a clothes kick!
THANKS for looking ladies...you guys ROCK!

Thanks for the look see!

Ok, Rather than add another post of tee recons and things I have made, I decided to just add to thie one.
So...Here they are....I have more, so I will probably update again.

I made this out of a Harry Potter Tee, it says, "7-21-07 Who Will Die?"

Same, Harry Potter Tee, But Gyrffindor Love. I have another HP tee to kill too!

Ok, initially this was supposed to be a skirt. Too big at first, so I fixed it...and made it to small. So, Pull up, and HAY! A tank....Yeah....I Love it. I am going to make some more like this....

I really like those integrated sleeves. It looks great on you and looks like a pattern you could make hundreds of!

That is really nice! What did you use to make the pattern out of? Or did you just lay the shirt on top and use that to trace onto the fabric? Huh I would really like to try this!

I don't know how other people make their patterns, but I've always laid the garment straight with the "grain" of the newspaper's classified ads. (The columns help me keep everything straight and symmetrical.) I trace around it, then cut 5/8 inch larger than what I traced, just eyeballing it.

I know, I know, newsprint isn't meant to last long, but I've got newsprint patterns I made 35 years ago. Long enough, huh? (If only I could still fit into them!)

Oh I love shirts like this, with comfy sleeves and a nice neckline. Cheesy Great job! I'd love a little drawing of the pattern if you have time, the picture doesn't quite give a good scope of the shape.
