Don't have a waist? Need one? This shirt to the rescue!







It looks even better when I am wearing a good bra...this was my "lazy sewing Saturday" bra and it's not working to my best advantage.

I used the wrong size needles in the serger and poked holes in the fabric.  Roll Eyes So I am going to redo it now that I have the correct needles in. I am going to add pockets in the black strip, at the bottom, 'cause it seems like that'd be cute.

What a flattering style!  I have such a boyish figure and need to "make" a waist! It looks fabulous and I love the stripes..is it your own pattern?  How long did it take to make?

It is a modification of a traced pattern from a shirt I bought...I can put one of these together in about an hour, from cutting to wearing.
