I could post a tute if anyone would like, this brown shirt was made out of a larger shirt my dad gave me.
Sorry for the bad pictures, it's hard to take pics of yourself.
This was another one I made a long time ago, almost a year ago. It's falling apart because it was one of the first shirts I ever made.
They're quite easy,
it didn't take me an half hour and I handsew.
If anyone would like a tutorial, let me know.
I'm planning on making a few more now that summer is finally here.
First, you'll want a tshirt or fabric. The tshirt doesn't necessarily need to be too big for you.
Cut out of the fabric;
the hieght (from about the middle of your breast, mine was about fourteen inches)
and the width (measure of your bust, divided by two and minus about two unless the fabric has no stretch)
Sew up the sides of the tshirt and lay aside for now.
If you have enough fabric from the tshirt you can make the triangles from that, in this tute I used a scrap of fabric.
The triangles EACH should be half the length (plus about one inch and your seam allowance) of the top of the shirt.
The hieght of the triangles should be about five inches.
That's about as much as I can tell you about the triangles, it's pretty much a trial and error thing you'll have to go through your self.
Cut out FOUR triangles. Take two, put them right sides in and sew around the top two edges, leaving the bottom open.
Cut two long skinny strips of fabric from the tshirt and pull on them to stretch them out, these will be your straps. You could also make thicker straps if you like.
Put the strap inside the INSIDE OUT triangle and make sure the end of the strap is tucked into the top corner of the triangle. Sew over this corner, so that the strap is gonna stay there. Do this for both triangles.
Turn the triangles right side out.
If you decide on making thicker straps, you can make the tops of the triangles a bit flatter.
Turn the shirt right side out. You might want to fold it in half and put a pin or safety pin in the very middle so you know where it is. If your triangles are big enough, you can make them overlap. I had issues with the fabric I was using and mine doesn't overlap. I hate whatever this shiny fabric is.
Pin the triangles on, sew.
Finish the back however you want, and you're done.
I'm sorry if I didn't make sense or whatever,
but making this particular shirt made me fustrated and sweaty.
I wish I used some other fabric now -.-
Have fun makin shirts and ask for clarification if you need it,
I check my posts quite often.
