My first recon design.  I even drew out the pattern for it! But overall pretty easy to make, the blue was just a scrap of polyester fabric that i had hanging around..

I'm very happy with how it turned out though!


tee-shirt I used


A couple front views



and the back, since none of the fabric had much stretch i had to make a way to loosen it a bit.....



It was really striaght forward to make, but I did keep the dimensions of the pattern pieces i used if anyone is interested!

Comments or Questions welcomed Smiley

************************TUTORIAL*****************************
this is my first one, so I hope it flows ok, let me know if you're unsure of anything

For the pieces you can modify to your size.

My band and body pieces are 30 cm around at the top, because thats ~ how wide I am around directly under my bust.

My bra size is a smallish C cup, so you can make the triangles bigger or smaller based on your cup size.

For the width around the bottom I just kinda guessed, I found  a flowy shirt that fit me well and used the circumference of it to determine how much my pieces would flare.  So again these can be modified to your liking.

For the lining of the triangles I didn't measure, but just used scrap pieces

do it!  this website is 100% my inspiration for everything!
The design is simple and you can pretty much see what I did, but I can give you the dimensions for the pattern pieces I made if you're interested!

I also interfaced the straps so they would be more sturdy, not sure if that's req'd or not.
