 i don't have a before picture, but it was huge! very wide, with long sleeves and high collar that my mom used to wear when i was like in first grade (i'm 21 now Tongue) because the thought she was "so big" that she had to cover her entire upper body....

anyway, i found it in the attic in the "give away bags" of clothing, like pretty much everything i'm sewing this summer vacations (in Chile it's summer right now Wink)

i was looking in my "patterns" folder on my computer and didn't find anything i like, so i searched on "utilisima.com" website
(i posted the links to a list of free knitting and sewing projects from that web on the "free patterns" topic)
and found this "bell sleeve t-shirt" and i gave it a try
http://www.utilisima.com/manualidades/trabajo_06.php?IdTrabajo=1923  (molde = pattern)
it has a gathered neckline and sleeves

that web site is great, there's a lot of ideas with patterns, that you have to draw yourself to "real life size" Cheesy
all in Spanish and metric sistem (i hate the inches and feet sistem  Angry)

well, this is my new top:

     
   


i really really really like how it looks, i think is one of my "most professional finished shirts" i have made Smiley

don't forget to comment, thank you for reading

Very cute---is the color more blue or green?  Either way, it looks good.

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.
