Ok, so I wanted to try to draft my own pattern, did that, then I was afraid if I had measured wrong or anything I would mess up good fabric, soooo, I took an Old Tshirt and chopped it up appling my pattern! It actually turned out half way decent! I need to make a few adjustments, but here it is:



*********TUTE ADD*********
For those of you who asked & have so patiently waited .. I present: a HUGE tute!

First the measurements:

trace all of your pattern onto a tshirt:
NOTE: I made the waist pieces and the front & back of shirt half size and cut them out on a fold:









I hope that covers it all! Sorry for the overload of pics! It's my first real tute! Any questions, please PM me!

Enjoy!

I love it, the braided strap is cute and it fits you very well.
If you can take a gungy old t-shirt and make it look that fantastic, I can't imagine what 'nice' fabric would look like.

Ummm... it looks amazing! Great job!
Im sure half if not more is the great figure you have which i point out only because i assume you are mother to all the children in your avatar, so congrats for that!..
But the shirt looks great, i am not experienced enough to offer any advice, it all looks good to me.
Cant wait tosee what it looks like with 'nice' fabric!

Yes, they are all mine, I don't know how I ended up looking like this, after giving birth to 5 children within 8 years! LOL Pure luck! Smiley

Thank you all for your nice comments! I ask for suggestions, becuase I am also new at all this, but I have become addicted! Cheesy
