You may not have thought of this, but your too small version in the blue reminds me of the weskit/vest-like thing that they wear around here as part of a German folk costume (it's Wurstfest time every year in this German heritage community)...generally there's a white frilly blouse underneath it and a colorful dirndl skirt, but the weskit thingie fits just around the bosom just like that, only it's very fitted, and usually made out of some kind of embroidered wool. This would be a lot more forgiving in the changes-sizes-often population.

Not gonna lie, i was sad i didn't have a shirt i could mangle into something beautiful, and ran to the thrift shop only to return empty handed.  i'll be watching for a shirt so i can make one too, it's SO cute!  that and i want to see if it frames my bust nicely too ha ha!

your tute was great! I made one today (in lieu of homework) and it turned out great! you weren't lying either, it took about 20 minutes or less. I used a simple brown long-sleeved tee that happened to be slightly too short to be comfortable, but now I can wear it! I will post pictures later when I don't look like ass and can actually take some pics.

Thank you everyone for the very kind feedback! Thank you pointing out the possibilities of my failed attempt, McJulie-O. I feel a little better about screwing up! And I would love to see your version, cherryblossom!

I'm glad this project was inspiring! I am currently attempting to make the shrug with a thin sweaterknit and I will share how it turns out. I'm also going to try a buttondown shirt because I think that would work too.

This is super cute! I wanna make one!! Tongue  I find myself once again wishing some of the old shirts I've got were too big instead of too small! *sigh* maybe there's one buried in my pile somewhere that'll work...  Undecided
