Okay then, this is my first ever top...ever !
I had an old kids graffiti top, from when i was about 10 (I don't throw anything away :S)
And I had a huuuge t-shirt from taking part in a tennis competition.
These are the original tops:


So, take two old tops, and make one new strapless boobtubeeee Smiley (ignore my brastraps lol)


And this is a close up of the graffiti bit:

It's sort of based on a tute from whatthecraft.com, but i had to modify it a bit because i couldnt get the contour bust right, so i added the gathered bit to make up for it Smiley
I would appreciate your comments, and any suggestions on what i could do better Smiley
Thanks,
emily

p.s. i'm not a robot :/ but its making me post links because im still a newbieee so apologies about that Smiley

I think it looks great Smiley
You did a really great job with the gathering part...I've tried it before with little success.

Cheers!

that's a really cool solution for the too-small graffiti tee.
