For this vest I took an old kids t-shirt with the funky print, cut it along one side to make a flat piece then used iron on interfacing to stop the fabric from curling and make the sewing part easier! I cut out the shape, keeping the original seam in the centre so i could match it up with the seam on the vest. I then took a boring plain vest and used a tiny bit of fabric glue to hold the design in place. Then appliqued it on!

Sorry i didnt take any pics as i was doing it...will do next time Smiley I'm still new to posting on here, although have been lurking for a while Cheesy

Anyways, hope you like it.

That's awesome! Where did you find the fabric for that? I love old comics, and I've got way too many boring tank tops.

We all make mistakes, and then when you've made enough, they call it experience.

the fabric was from an old t-shirt in a second hand shop. It was a kids tshirt - no way was it gonna fit me but i loved the pattern so had to have it!!

thanks for looking and i'm glad you like it  Cheesy

I just bought a whole bunch of tunic length tanks, so this will be a great way to dress up the bulk of them! I might try one with a flower too! Thanks for the inspiration.
