Minored in Russian in college. Also just a general nerd who happens to be slightly obsessed with Russia. So I got a mens XL shirt that went down to my knees, and semi-followed a tutorial from Generation T (I think it's that one... it's my sister's). I used thin black ribbon for the drawstrings. Oh, and it doesn't make me look pregnant in real life Smiley  And here we go! Sorry about the bad pictures.

Whole thing:


One of the drawstring sides. It looks better pulled up like this than all the way down:


The text and my not-very-good-but-who-cares-cuz-its-a-t-shirt darts:


And the back of the right strap. It's hard to see but it's got 2 little pleats (I left the front regular to cover my bra). The other side is pleated too, in the opposite direction so the face each other:


It's not great, but it's fun and nerdy like me. What do you think?

I think you did a great job on that tee
The lettering is really cool too
I think its really evocative of Russian
I think I might have to make one but in Polish Wink

Where did you get such an awesome shirt??  I have a friend who loves all things Russian who told me sometimes she dreams in Russian. 

On to the craft-  I love the style you picked to transform this shirt into.  Its perfect for the summer.  Lovely work Cheesy
