I was in my school's musical, and all of us got tshirts.  I never usually wear t shirts, so I wanted to make something that would actually fit me.  This is my first post, and my first time making clothing...The sleeves look a little wonky, but I don't think it's bad for a first try, I'm wearing it tomorrow.  Criticism?

The potato sack that is before:


During (I liked it this way, but my mother and school dres code doesn't):


Finished (I subconsciously tilt my hips when I stand, so it looks offcentered):





In case anyone wanted to know, here's how I made the sleeves. I tried on the tube top and had my mom measure from front to back, and marked the back for me.  I cut the green in the shape above, and then cut a few inches in and made darts so it wouldn't stand straight up.  I sewed the cloth edging onto the green, then sewed both sleeves onto the top.  Hope this helps!

That's really cute. I like the finished better than I like the first version, so I think it's okay that your mom and school said no.

Good job! Way better than a tee shirt!

Actually, I like it much better with the straps!
I have a ton of show shirts at home (all 4 years of high school worth) and I'm working on making them into a quilt.  Smiley

I love the way it turned out! What is the yellow fabric that you used on the sleeves?

I can't tell you how much I love this shirt. I would buy it, I would make one, I  would- WEAR IT. And that is what counts.

Thank you all so much, your compliments encourage me to want to make more.  The yellow fabric is plain cotton, the same as the sleeves.

wow I love the shirt! as a theatre junkie I have tons of show shirts with no "cute" way to wear the potato sack after the run of a show. This gives me some great ideas. BTW, what part did you play? I was in the show in college as the jester.

Grin  A jester as well~  The original t shirt was thankfully less horrifying than my costume, half of which they made me sew to fit me.  Not a single person on costume crew could sew.  Can you imagine?
