I bought an awesome shirt from the thrift store last year for a $0.25.  It was obviously made by someone, and I absolutely adore it.  Perhaps I will edit this post later with a picture of it so that all may admire it.  Done!  It's made of the coolest yellow with apples material.  Anyway, I recently decided to try my hand at making clothes.  The pants for my kids - great experience, the shorts for myself - definitely still under construction... so I wanted to try something for myself that would be very elementary.  I used my favorite summer shirt as a guide and picked some material that I had used for a carrier when my son was a baby.  I mean, I used the actual pouch for material, so I didn't have enough to make the shirt as long as I wanted.  I decided to accent with a bit of scrap material that used to be a sheet.  I had planned to put a couple pockets up above the white part, but once I got the white on there, I thought it would look weird.  So I just put another piece of the white on top of the first piece to make an apron like pocket.  Now that it's done, I'm wondering if the white piece was a complete mistake.  One minute I like it, and the next I feel that it's out of place.  Any thoughts?

The inspiration shirt!

The back

Taken by my son... hence the odd angle and me not having a head.

Taken by me... hence the odd angle and the shirt looking deformed.

Wow, this is nice... and I'm not just saying that because you have sex with me.

I like it!  and I think the white part looks just fine because the main part has white in it.  Smiley
