Thanks everyone!!

I always forget that English is different in different places....  'Chuffed' is a British word for proud.

I think it worked out so well as the shirt is made from quite thick, stretchy material (and it fitted well to begin with).  I'll definitely be looking out for similar shirts in charity shops from now on Smiley

As for how I did it, I literally cut it into roughly the shape I wanted and pinned and cut and pinned and cut til it looked how I wanted and then sewed it up!  Grin

Thank You! I think you may have just solved the problem I was having with my t-shirt to vest recon. I'm having the same boob area problem so I'm going to try what you did and see if it works.

Nice job on your vest. It looks really nice. Smiley

Be careful with glitter. It never goes away. Glitter is the herpes of craft supplies.

This is fantastic! I've been wanting to make one of these, and now I can see how it's done. Just got to learn how to make darts. But seriously, well done!
