I whipped this up for my daughter yesterday, just tracing off a top she already had, to make the pattern. It mostly worked out really well. Only problem was that I rushed it, and the straps are frankly quite terrible (I was almost too embarrassed to post this pic, but then I decided to just get over myself  Roll Eyes).

Anyway, the fabric came from a thrifted vintage bed sheet, which was in very good condition, and I used up some old buttons from my recycled button stash. At least I have plenty of this fabric to have another crack at it.

And next time my motto will be "more haste, less speed", and hopefully my edges will then be perfect Tongue
