love it!
I don't like camisoles because they always fit my boobs weird/wrong, especially the ones with built in bras.
what a great alternative!

I think this is a great idea, but that it would look better in a solid, or a more random print.  Horizontal stripes do have a bit of a widening effect, and red against black makes the red stand out.  I think this one would look best with a coordinating red top.  (This is meant as constructive criticism, I'm not trying to be mean, and I hope you don't take it that way. Smiley)

That is cool! I remember reading about these a while ago-- in Japan, they call them Haramaki and sometimes doctors will recommend using these along with medicine for stomach/intestine/kidney ailments.

Looks cozy-- like wearing a hug!

This is a brilliant idea!  I love wearing low-rise jeans (more flattering on my hips and tush) but I'm always so paranoid about bending over or even sitting down in them sometimes, particularly as so many cute tees these days seem designed for unimpeded navel-gazing...  *sigh*  Anyway, this is the perfect idea to fix that problem and keep snuggly warm in cold weather, thank you so much!!!

I agree with you. After wearing it a few times, I thought about that problem, too. When I made it, I was totally in love with that fabric, and I still like it. Nevertheless I think I'll do the next one in a solid print.

It doesn't roll down at all. This might be because I cut it in shape...

even though you don't look all that curvaceous this top is awesome, I am not really curvy but I have a baby fat belly and I too hate it when your shirt rides up I wear long tank tops under everything. When my sister was preggo I cut the top off tank tops ( the tight kind) and she used them as belly bands. And she continued to use them after for breast feeding too so she didn't feel so naked hauling her shirt up every ten minutes.

I don't think you could patent it, but I have heard of belly warmers a while ago! They are very popular in Japan and have been for a while! A great tutorial I found {since I have such a growing belly, being 8months pregnant and all} is the Haramaki / Tummy Warmer tutorial!

Although I'm sure there are various other ways of making a nice belly warmer! Here's the article I first saw regarding haramaki: http://blog.craftzine.com/archive/2007/03/japanese_grannies_knit_belly_w.html
