Hello this is my first post. I love everyones ideas and I thought I'd share something of my own. I got this shirt from my dad and liked the color and decided to make a halter top. I had a picture in my head and winged it as I went along. It had to be taken in on the sides and also made shorter.  I made 2 long strips from the sleeves and sewed them into the sides and tied them into a bow in the back. I'm pleased with the way it turned out! Now it just needs to be warm to wear it. There are four pictures. One before, after, a side and back.

Does your dad know you took his shirt ? Wink
He wouldn't even recognize it! That looks great.  Love the detail work

Thanks for all the compliments! My dad did know I used his shirt, it was in a bag of unused clothing and he said it never looked better.

Looks great.
