Just before i left for sweden i was eating in my favourite vegan bar and they happened to be selling some really nice shirts so i bought the one saying 'change your life not the channel' in xxl with the thought to make something more formfitting of it. And much to my surprise i actually did so. A year later that is  Wink

So lo and behold here is my made-over shirt!


My sincere apologies for the face im making, i flatter myself to think that the other 23,9 hours of the day i look nothing but smashing Smiley
Its a bit hard to see on this picture but it has 2 round pockets w/ bias binding.

One from the back:


This was btw my first time making my own bias-tape and i can tell you it was in fact a piece of cake! After reading a lot of people complaining about it i was sort of wary to start with but as long as you take the time to iron stuff it really is easy.

this is super fab ... and I agree ... I'll never buy bias tape again!!! I actually bought a bias tape maker as well, makes it more than easy to make your own.
