This was inspired by a recon in Generation T - it's not exactly the same, I added my own flair to it!  Wink

I just chopped from under one sleeve to the opposite side of the neckline, cut three straps from the scrap fabric then sewed them over the bare shoulder. I sewed a big button on to cover the stitching. Easy peasy!! Only took me about 20 minutes. I was gonna put a dart in to make it fit better, but I got lazy and couldn't be bothered!!

I really love this T-shirt! What does everyone think?  Grin

I think this is fabulously done. The cutting looks professional and I love this project, haven't gotten to all of them yet, love that book.

It looks really good on you, and I like the button, It fits nicely, too.

Looks shexy! I don't think you need to put darts in stretchy fabric, just take it in a bit under your boobs?!

Did I buy you that t-shirt off my holidays (because I've been there)?
